Hair Update!!! :)
I haven’t done a hair update for months and months so I feel like its a good time!!!
So the fringe has grown out into "slut straps" (aka. bangs on side of face that usually go past the chin) which is a plus because I love 90’s/early 00’s hair and it looks great in a pony tail.
My roots have also grown a lot and due to the amazing hair dye job I had done (this time last year) I have been able to grow them out relatively smoothly. Although I feel like my hair sometimes reflects Tully from BB AU, its at a length where it sort of looks like ombre` as you can see in photo 1.
I have the name of the hairdresser at the bottom (he isn’t paying me lol)
Cutting my hair at the beginning of the year was a very good decision, and I have come to realise that my hair is only curly when it is layered. My hair being all the same length at the ends have left me with much straighter hair. This was a big surprise to me but it makes a lot of sense.
My hair is probably in the best condition it has been in for many many years and this is how I have been able to achieve this:
- I only ever straighten or blow dry on special occasions - which is rather rare
- I have been using amazing shampoo and conditioner (Product listed below)
- I maintain split ends regularly
- I stopped putting a shitload of product in my hair unnecessarily
- I only use Fudge Paintbox to dye my hair which is a temporary dye and barely affects it
Basically, a good way to sum it all up- LESS IS MORE
Cutting out bad habits becomes a lot easier when your hair starts to noticeably look healthier, because you aren’t constantly trying to improve it!!!!
I am pleased with the way my hair is going and I plan to grow it much longer. I have been thinking about dying it but I am FIGHTING THE URGES because I have finally been able to cut the addiction :P

WHERE DO I START?!?
I have bleached ends on my hair, and wished to keep them toned- so I looked to purple shampoo and conditioner, which is proven to help balance the brassy tones in blonde hair…
If you seek purple shampoo, this is an ALRIGHT product, possibly a good choice for people who don’t want to spend tonnes of money, but not a fantastic choice if you have really oily or really dry hair.
Don’t even think about the conditioner!
After using this product for a few weeks I quickly swapped conditioners. I found (even after the first use) my hair was very dry, abnormally dry… I thought that maybe my hair wasn’t used to using the product? Oh no… it kept happening for weeks, everytime I used it I felt the need to use a moisture mask for 20 minutes. It was pretty shocking. After swapping conditioners… everything felt back to normal.
My hair doesn’t tend to get very oily, but I found that using this shampoo wasn’t all that great… I ended up buying a dry shampoo!
the shampoo is alright, overall I did see improvement in the tone of my hair colour- it was gradual but it worked…
the downside was the quality of my hair and the way the product felt, and I don’t really recommend it at all hahaha.
I AM SUPER EXCITED THOUGH BECAUSE: I have bought myself some of the ‘organix macadamia oil conditioner’ and ive used it once and it feels soooo nice and smells yummy! yay! I will do an update on how that works for me :)
SOME ALTERNATE PURPLE SHAMPOO:
Lush ‘Daddy-O’ apparently works very well!!! Try it! A little goes a long way as well! (Tested by Niamh G)

What are your thoughts of Fudge Paintbox (Including packaging, colour, logo and of course how it works for you!) ?
