I just can’t today.

I only was just able to push myself outside for a walk. I was feeling so lazy after having a rest day yesterday. I had a small pack of alcohol last night as a treat and it gives me the patience needed when bleaching out the dark and ginger parts of my hair. The processing time meant I had it on until super late at night. I was going to use more than one box but wasn’t sure if I was reacting to it. They sometimes tweak the ingredients so my skin reacts until it gets used to it. The pathetic small amount of mixture you get for 6 pounds is absolutely useless for thick hair. You can buy separate bleach sachets and cream developer but the price is about the same. I am sure that every time I do housework there is an unknown force that just makes it look like I haven’t done it the next day. I had a good blitz on my rest day but now there is just as much bits around and things kept dropping on the floor when I was trying to put dinner on last night. I wiped it up but only with kitchen roll so it dried looking an absolute mess. Yogurt also leaves stickiness which keeps catching the underneath of my slipper. In my defence I managed to get a lot done in regard to putting a full root coverage of bleach while my dinner was cooking which I used to be quite slow doing. Then the cats decided that it was time for their dinner. That delayed mine even more. I swear that things are just constantly kicking up in my face right now. I literally put oil through my pony tail. It has gone dry again. I probably need to do a moisture treatment and straighten it into my hair again. That is the only way I can get it to retain moisture when it’s blond. I am somehow managing to keep the ends enough for it to get long this time. There is never a time when I do not put leave in conditioner on the lengths so even if it goes dry it doesn’t snap off. The trick is not to fiddle with it which is something I used to do a lot when younger. Bleach, wash, deep condition, straighten, and leave for a week. You can put oil on it in between if it gets a bit dry and make sure you protect it from the sun with those sun protection included oils.

  1. Your routine looks like mine! And, “every time I do housework there is an unknown force that just makes it look like I haven’t done it the next day” – this is VERY relatable! I also bleach my hair, but since it’s short, I do all of it in every 3 months. It’s all unpleasant (haircut plus bleaching), but tolerable since it’s not that frequent. I tried to make all procedures as easy as possible some time ago as all that is too exhausting 😦
