Well hopefully I never get thin hair
But it does run in my family, so I probably will
Damn you genetics! Why can't you take it from my paternal chromosomes?

You could always take Finasteride to avoid that.

I mean, sure there's the whole 'lowered testosterone' side effect...

Well, the hair is cut, colored, and straightened, and here are the results:





It always shocks me how homely I look in pictures  :psyduck:

You look more like your avatar every day!

I love that shade of blue - it wouldn't suit me but I'm happy to see it in other people's hair.

I'll be honest, the hair looks a bit... damaged.  Are you chemically straightening it, or just using an iron? 

Of course, it could also be from the dying, but I'm not sure that's what's going on.

It was bleached before the color was put in, that that definitely took it's toll. Heat-treating it the following day certainly didn't do it any favor's I'm sure. I think it just needs some time to recover. Otherwise, my hair hadn't been dyed in years, so... yeah. It's not happy hair right now. I'll take pics again when I just toss some mousse or gel in it. It'll look happier then.

Have you considered doing an olive oil treatment for it? That would do wonders.

(other things that could help: A mayonnaise deep conditioning, or a soak in apple cider vinegar after shampooing/conditioning your hair (no, your hair won't smell like vinegar - the smell rinses out))

I really like the colour, it's neat how far it starts up rather than it just being tips.

I tried to dye my entire hair that shade of blue a while ago but whether my hair is too dark (from being dyed before) or it just wasn't clean enough that day, it didn't take at all. If I looked closely the more blonde parts of my roots went sort of green. Going to let my natural hair colour grow out and try again.

Thanks for the suggestions! I want to avoid any deep-conditioning stuff for the moment, simply because I'm told that it'll leech the color out. Once it starts fading, I'll likely give it a go. Day 2 without having washed it is making it look not so horribly damaged, since the natural oils are getting back into it.

As for color, I think this stuff is only available in professional salon stores (the kind you need a license to get anything). My friend did it for me, that's in school for it right now, and oh my god, the dye stains things worse than anything I've seen before - the floor of my shower has a distinct blue tint to it right now. There's actually two colors in the hair, a tealy-green and a dark blue, and that's how the gradient was put in.

A lady that came into the store yesterday said that my hair reminds her of a peacock. I'm pretty okay with this  :-D

I've done the blue streaky thing before (professionally), and it does tend to fade to green and then greenish-gray, but most of the fading is still pretty okay.

I want to have a trim this weekend and maybe put more bleached-out streaks in, near the bottom, so that if I get an in-person interview for this job, I'll be able to slam some color in there.
