I wanna be a platinum blonde...

... Ha ha, but I didn't quite manage it on the first go.  

Here I am with my new blonde tresses.   I have been banging on about what a rut I am in for the past few months so I thought I'd go for it.  I bought the 40% peroxide and the bleach powder sachets and set to it, with Hole's 'Plump' on full blast to get me pumped.  

Long story short after 2 attempts it went like this 


A dark ash blonde dye, an emergency trip to the salon to get rid of the frazzled ends and lots of purple shampoo later and it is looking relatively normal again.

I still want to take it lighter so I can get that punk ass blonde I love but I am biding my time and  giving it lots of tlc for a while.



  1. Yikes. Blondes don't have more fun, trust me.

  2. Hair changes are great pick-me-ups. Platinum is a tough non-colour. Don't give up. At the salon I had my head in bleach for three to four hours! My hair is fried but if you slather on conditioners, it looks and feels great. Manic Panic has a toner now for getting white hair after bleaching. I was going to try doing my hair myself and use that product, but I found my old hair colourist by chance. Good luck.

  3. Very brave. So very brave. Well done you!

  4. Wow!!! Such a change, you are brave! X

  5. Is there a hair colour that doesn't look good on you? Keep going, I can totally see you as a punk princess. xxx

  6. It's only hair right:). Be patient and condition the hell out if it. I almost didn't recognize you! I've had the same hair for like 6 years now I cants see changing but sometimes I really want to, good for you for just going for it!

  7. Hey! I know I haven't commented in forever and a half, but I'm diggin' the blonde! I can't wait to see what you do with it next. :)

  9. Oooooooh yes you're certainly on your way to blonde fab-ness, go for it! Mel's advice re the Manic Panic toner is spot on. I haven't used it, as I'm still colouring my hair, but I plan to do so next time I'm platinum which, hell, could be tomorrow! xoxoox


Ah, thank you for commenting. You've made my day :)
