Well, a few months back I sported purple hair, just in case you missed it on my IG. I did it for Chez Vous’ look book – for a detailed explanation of how to achieve the look, check it out here! For all 20 look, see here.
What I learnt about sporting purple hair:
1. It required bleaching my hair 3x to get a blondish colour before dye-ing purple. It lasts for about 3 weeks before it all fades, leaving just a tad purple at the base.
2. A lot of people will come up to you and say “Wow, you’re so brave!” which I later figured out it’s a nicer way of saying, “Wow, that’s crazy!”. Yes, really. That said, it was a real conversation starter. People I’m not really close to at work/office will start conversations with my hair colour “Oh, it has faded? That fast?” “How do you maintain this!”.
3. Speaking of maintenance. Let’s just say that crazy coloured hair that requires bleaching your hair 3x is not for the faint hearted or the lazy (which I am, but for my hair… I was rather diligent..). I won’t bore you with the details, but if you are keen, maybe I will share another post of how diligent I was in hair maintenance, post purple hair. Honestly I won’t dare repeat such a feat without the trusted hair directors at Chez Vous. Leave the bleach on too long or too near your scalp and you might get burned. It will damage your hair, that’s for sure, but it’s how you lessen the damage during the colour and how you take care with post hair colour treatments, to give your hair some semblance of life…
4. Once in my life is enough. I don’t regret having my hair in a pretty purple, YOLO, guys. Gotta try it at least once! And if not now, then when? I don’t want to be 30, married with kids and sporting purple hair. Not judging those that do, just not something I’d do when I’m 30… I think.
Wow, didn’t know there was so much I had to share about my purple hair colour journey!
Some snaps from when I had purple hair!:
Getting my hair bleached 3 x…Till it was in a hair colour that reminded me of Naruto…
And having PURPLE hair. Omg guys.
Yes that’s me, getting very amused seeing myself with fantasy like purple hair! Like is this for real? Is that my real hair? YES. FURREAL.
Cue many selfies and looks with my brilliant purple hair: I could be a Yakuza in my previous life. (Yearite…)
Or I could just be me, but with purple hair! ^^
Went back for a treatment because Purple hair requires it. Rather, bleached hair requires maintenance, don’t say I didn’t warn ya!
Purple hair + curls? Hair life doesn’t get any better than this right?
Love my purple hair curls!
This was probably when I LOVED my purple hair colour the MOST. When it was fading and it was like Unicorn hair!!! <3 Alas, it only lasted about a week for this perfect hair colour. Am honestly amazed at girls who can maintain their pastel hair colour for like forever, HOW DO YOU DO IT?
