I’m not sure how this is going to go down, my hair dying videos really divide my viewers/readers but I think it’s a little car crash because you can’t help but watch. In this episode of ‘How To Wreck Your Hair At Home’ I decided to try my hand at DIY Lowlights. I love my blonde but the upkeep is taking it’s toll and I wanted a way to stay light but in a more natural shade so that my regrowth wasn’t as terrible and maybe I could go longer between touch ups. When I last had professional low lights I didn’t love it, I didn’t want fine pieces I wanted to put chunkier darker blonde sections through the top and leave it blonder at the ends so as to fake the ombre trend a little I guess. I started out trying to do it ‘properly’ (only withot any of the required equipment, thus making it a total farce) but in the end I was taking chunks of hair and covering them with dye. Despite my non-traditional method I’m really pleased with how it turned out and the reusable colour I chose will come in hand if I need to redo it when my colour fades or if I want to go even darker. I’ll review the dye separately as it’s fairly new and a really different way of colouring your hair at home. For now you can see my latest hair antics in the video below..
It doesn’t show up well on camera in the final shots as I’d almost lost all of the light but you can see from the pictures it turned out pretty well. What DIY’s have you tried to avoid a trip to the salon?
