Introducing my Hair Bucket List/Wishlist 2.0.
The first version of this wish list, which was created years ago, was just to have long, straight hair — long because my mother used to my cut my hair really short when I was a kid; straight because I’m naturally curly. All thanks to consistent rebond treatments, I was happy achieving my list but I got bored with my usual look.
Since 2007, I’ve done a lot with my hair. I had a cellophane treatment with burgundy red as the gloss color, so my hair would look like red under natural light (and this was even before red was a hair color trend, just saying). I had it permed but it was too high maintenance. Dyed it black because I wanted “lips red as the rose, hair black as ebony, and skin white as snow”, then a year later… I dyed it chocolate brown.
My current wish list is simple, Just add colors here and there. Except for the blue/purple hair, my wish list is nothing too bold or too unnatural. Despite that, it was still a big step for me since the hair color will definitely break or make my whole look and choosing the shade made me fickle for quite a while. It was only when I got my highlights that I’ve completely decided what shade to choose.
For the sake of avoiding any issue, my first plan was to get purple and then dye it red with pink ombre. I asked Helga about the color transition and she said that if I dye the dark purple with red, it’ll just look like plum or something. I didn’t want that shade nor do I want to have my hair bleached twice (In case I want to change color in a span of two months). Since my hair’s health is more important than the opinion of a hater, I went for red with ombre that will soon fade into pastel pink. Two bucket list in one, saves more money.
Watch out for my next entry! ;)
