At-Home Hair Dying Shenanagins and Clothes!

I had to go to Walgreen's today for a clinic appointment.

Won't go into all the gruesome details, but suffice it to say I have a Urinary Tract Infection and being on the Depo birth control shot has caused me to be on a mega-period that's lasted 2 weeks.

Both are unfortunate, but meh. Got antibiotics and pain pills that turn my piss bright orange...

Anyways, while I was waiting for my prescription to be filled, the boyfriend and I wandered about Walgreen's and ended up in my usual aisle: hair care.

We browsed the hair colors and eventually I impulse bought a bleaching kit, blonde hair dye, and John Frieda Blonde shampoo and conditioner.

We return home and I take about 50 billion pills for my UTI and then we're off! It's hair dying time.

It began as a fairly average hair dying experience.

Applied bleaching kit and read a magazine while waiting for my hair to magically whiten.

Made an insane mess in the process.

After the initial bleaching, I applied the blonde hair dye.

It did nothing except for sort of, kind of, not really minimize the orangeyness of the bleaching.

I then did a very bad thing.

I bleached my hair again.

And then, when I was not pleased with the white hair with strange pink streaks in it, I dyed it again.

My scalp burned like a motherfucker.

That should've been my first sign that I was doing something bad.

I did end up getting the color I wanted...

It's a very pretty light, ash blonde. No yellow, no orange, no weird pink. Just white and sort of a grey color.

Unfortunately, my scalp is so damaged from dying/bleaching four times in one day.

I have big irritated areas where the skin is raw and painful and gross.

Dear god, what have I done now...

Despite killing my scalp and probably having all of my hair fall out, I did manage to fanangle a couple of shots out of the boyfriend so far.

Hopefully there are more to come.

Top, Bag, and Necklace: Forever 21, Shorts: Aeropostale, Shoes: Target

Off to the university library with the boyfriend, then possible beach time. I'll try to post more pictures soon!

A bientôt, lovelies.



  1. Ohh my goodness! Forget the scalp, my HAIR could barely handle one bleaching! I bleached, let it rest a week or two, then bleached again and used an ash-blonde toner. I had crispy plasticy feeling hair even with the recommended rest. If you can afford it, Ojon deep conditioner (It's some sort of palm oil) works wonders for damaged hair (you can even leave it on overnight, but it will get your pillowcase greasy). In any case, your final result looks fantastic!

  2. haha, I have scars on my head from over bleaching. AAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHH that hurts so bad. When it's on and you can feel it burning with chemicals like a friggin meth lab explosion on your head. ow. Nice color in the end. :-)

  3. Eish, the things we girls do for beauty! It looks bitchin', though! Hope the scalp feels better soon.

    I love the clothes! I especially love how you list Jaks as one of your accessories! He's adorable!

    Looking good, Babe! :)

  4. Hehe.. I can not bleach my hair.. Have tried it couple of times at the hair dressers and it ended up being orange ish... so erm ya.. ^^

    I love love love the outfits.. You look amazing :)

  5. Oh gawd what a nightmare! I've never bleached, just dyed darker. I have accidentally dyed black on more than one occasion though lol. That's also the first time I've seen your pretty face! You are super cute, lady!

    Thanks again for the Birthday wish, all of them really made my day :) Also sorry I've been missing lol.

  6. Ooo nice outfits!! And your hair looks great!! Idk how you still have hair after all that bleaching but good job. :D
