Goodbye, platinum blonde
May 28, 2013 § 8 Comments
I have dyed my dirty blonde hair bright platinum blonde for over 15 years, but I always knew getting pregnant would be my end point.
You can technically dye your hair while you are expecting, but the thought of all those chemicals being absorbed through my scalp every month, plus the strong dye smell turned me off. I have been weaning myself off the good stuff for over 4 months when I decided now that I’m safely into my second trimester, I should do something about my roots and sad-looking faded hair.
After seeing my friend Annie’s fun ombre ‘do, I went to see Megan at Exhibit Salon in Greenpoint. She attempted to get as close to my natural colour as possible, but ended up adding in some brown tones since I’m not sure if they make a hair dye for “colourless ash blonde”. She kept the blonde bottoms to create an ombre look (and reduce the amount of shock for me!), but toned them to fade more gradually into the darker colour now on top.
I’m still getting used to it, but I hope I decide this is something I can live with for a while because it will be so much more manageable! What do you think? Help me be okay with this, friends!
