minty petrol green or whatever...
« on: 01 Jan 13 / 11:39 AM »
I just wanted to re-done my green christmas hair and wanted it also a bit more foresty, so diceded to mix with some Alpine.
It came out not that foresty I wanted it to have but really a nice shade of green. In daylight it is really really bright  8)

I used a half bottel of Alpine, another half of Apple Green, some Fish Bowl and the rest from the Iguana Green and diluted it with some conditioner.

Here's the outcome:

First two were taken with flash light.
Last two were taken in daylight.

I took some shots this morning, and wondering that it now looks that foresty I wanted it to have... such a crazy colour  *puzz*

Sometimes looking like petrol, at home looking more teal, in daylight looking like traffic green and at work looking foresty...
Kind of schizophrenic *haha*  *rofl*

Thanks  :D

Yesterday some people came towards me as I was walking to my car and one of them stared at me and then just said: "Welcome to the kingdom of goblins"...

Haha ^.^

I love it. How do you keep your hair in such amazing condition?

I only use silicon free shampoo and conditioner.
It's nature cosmetic, I use a hydrating shampoo and conditioner and sometimes the argan oil conditioner from swiss-o-par.
Mostly let hair air dry (if I need to use the hair dryer I blow only with the coldest level).

Once a month I use the leave-in  "Henna plus Hairwonder"
This product I can really recommend for damaged hair.

For combing I use a wide tooth comb, for brushing an extensions brush because it is also better for natural hair.
Don't brush if hair is wet.
If I go for sleep I screw my hair to a bun (you can also braid it but I don't like the outcoming waves next morning because my hair is really sleek and with a screwed bun it gets lovely curls), so my hair won't tangle.
Only use hair ties without metal.
If I bleach I use coconut oil before ( *thx* to this forum, without I would not know about that).
You can also use cocooil for hair treatment. I think there's a topic about this.

Once a month I do a hair treatment mixed by myself consisting of coffee, egg yolk and olive oil.

So, that's all I do for my hair.  ;)

I think if I don't do anything like bleaching and dyeing, just let it natural, than it would be in a fantastic condition.
But I can't help myself, I love these unnatural colours that much  :D

Forgotten some things.

Wash hair just with lukewarm to cold water and you can do a rinse with a mixture of vinegar and water.
Don't rub hair with the towel, not more than press out.

Edit:
By the way, you have to think about that there are a lot of different hair types and this only works for my hair. That doesn't mean it'll also work for another person's hair.

Thank you so much. I love argon oils. And supposedly mayo is good at conditioning. But I can't handle the smell. I do a avacado/egg/olive oil mixture once a week. And I don't condition in the shower as it gives me bacne. Anything I put in my hair does so it is usually in a bun unless I know I'm going out. I use leave in garnier frutis conditioner when I do my hair also.

I'm def gonna buy coconut oil ASAP. I always wanted to cook with it but its $10 a bottle. Now I have a legit reason toget it. I have old coffee I do t drink cause I use instant so I'm gonna make a concoction.

$10 a bottle?

Here in Germany I just buy the one for cooking which is refined and only costs not even one euro...

Hey guys, wanted to post some pics of the actually fade.

It's been now three weeks since I've dyed my hair and I've washed it rount about 8 to 9 times until know.
Two washes I've done with antidandruff-shampoo to fade it down faster.

So that's the result now.  ;)

Just to let you know you have to use one that says either virgin, unrefined, or cold pressed coconut oil. The refined oil had been heated and does not have the same protecting properties when bleaching.
I paid 18 euros for about 500g of it in H&B then found the same amount in the supermarket for 6 euros! Gutted! My point is you can get some good deals if you hunt around especially in supermarkets. :)
