From Blonde to Brunette ♥

Some of you have already noticed my new hair colour in a couple of posts, but I posted last week asking for some advice on how to get my blonde hair brown without it fading. Most of you said to first add a red hair dye and then go over it with a brown after. Well.. I ignored all of your advice that night because I didn’t have any red dye at home! But I did have a dark brown colour from Superdrug which I tried.
The dye was called Intense Medium Golden Brown, and it has a hint of red in it so hopefully it will last! But this is the result. It was a bit of a shock after rinsing it out, Dad said I look like a goth! It’s a bit scary changing your hair colour after being used to it for so many years. It’s a bit darker than I really want it, but I’m guessing it will fade just like the other times I’ve tried dying over my bleach! But I do like it, it’s a nice change! 
I’m not actually sure of my natural hair colour. Mum said I didn’t actually have hair until I was about 3 years old (attractive baby) and then it was quite fair, but I’m pretty sure it’s actually now a very dull brown. Even from when I was 8 years old I used to use Sun In in my hair to lighten it, then when I was 11 I used to dye it a reddy colour, then it was increasingly blonde from 13 until now! But I was fed up of blonde hair and the maintenance, and mostly how dry and unhealthy it made my hair. Look at it now, after a trim it’s all nice and shiney!! So I’m determined to look after my hair now, using hair boosting supplements!
What do you think of my new hair?

    I think it really suits you, and looks really natural, too. If you hadn't of mentioned otherwise, I would have thought it was your natural colour!

    PS. I'm a new follower and just wanted to say how lovely your blog is. Your bedroom is to die for!
