Hair Blabber =) Hair Disaster!

Hi, I know I am doing two logs in one day =) I felt the sudden urge to talk about my hair, and how far it has come and all of that jazz . I will start from September to now.

Hair History: I have long, thick hair that is naturally curly. I am about a 3A. I don't relax my hair, but I do highlights and color, along with consecutive heat styling.

I had done one of the biggest hair mistakes a girl could do, dye her hair black. It took me a little over a year to get rid of this madness. So I started with the picture above. That was my starting point. Went to Regis salon, Naively asked for a light brown..and she said I could start to transition instead. She put caramel highlights in the hair, and I liked the rich look. WAY to expensive. The highlights faded quickly...So I went a different salon which I love called Leonard's and Julie put a dirty blonde color...I just wanted to break up all the black. BUT she cut me bangs when I definitely didn't want them....ended up the bangs picture.

So, then Chrissy finally got to my hair...of Leonards. She removed the black with a soap cap the little bit that was remaining...and went over it with a shimmery warm light brown, and then golden highlights. A tad drying to the hair, but my hair wasn't damaged! Ended up with the top photos. That is how I usually wear my hair, not entirely curly..sort of tousled/messy. I finger blowdry and use a Chi Flat Iron for random waves.
My Mission: To grow out my layers, side swept bangs, and just hair in general =) So, I've been trying out different products. Here is my list of them since September!
