New hair cut, extensions & hair growth!

I decided after months of growing out my fringe to cut it back in. I kept on seeing girls with messy wavy hair similar to how I do mine with fringes and it just looked beautiful! I do feel a little weird when I look into the mirror and I see a fringe but I guess I will get used to it!

Apparently now I look younger?! I don't know if thats a good or bad thing!

Fringe & extensions ^_^

Along with the fringe I brought myself some extensions, which I have been altering the colour. When I first brought them they were an 'ash blonde' apparently... They didn't seem very ash blonde to me as they were quite yellow! I needed to ombre them, I know that you can buy pre-ombred hair extensions but I preferred doing it myself. I dyed the top of them a dark blonde like my natural colour (I worked out how much was needed to be dyed before I did this). I then put a bleach on the rest of the hair and used purple shampoo to tone the yellow down. It is now very close to my very very light blonde ends but it still needs another purple shampoo just to take out a bit more of the yellow.

As my hair is quite thick I have a full head and a half of human hair at two different lengths, 14inch of a full head and 18 inch of half a head, I got them off ebay. However I have trimmed these as the ends weren't very nice and also layered them a little to match the layers in my hair. I also realised after that the 18 inch were a bit too long for me, however because they were slightly cheaper than buying 16 inch I am still glad I went for the 18 inch as I saved a bit of money. When I wear them I make sure that I curl my hair along with the extension hair to make sure it blends in better.

I used to wear extensions every single day when I went to 6th form, college and part of university, however now that my hair is much longer I only wear them occasionally. I may do another post about the different types of hair colours I have had as there has been a few!

I wear them when I feel like my hair just isn't looking right, I also like to wear them when doing a half up half down as I feel it makes the hair style look a lot better as most of my hair is in the layers not in the length. I am growing out my hair, my aim is to have long hair probably just a bit longer than the length in the picture above with the extensions, perhaps another 6-8 inches. I did have to cut quite a bit of my hair off when I used a purple on my ends which then stained my hair blue and refused to budge! I had to cut off about 3 inches which made me so sad! At least my hair is slowly getting to the length I want to to be!

To help with the hair growth I am still using the Lee Stafford for hair that never grows past a certain length I used this every 2-3 days when I wash my hair. I normally leave it on for about an hour while I do a deep condition as well. Since going back to ombre just over a month ago it has grown just over an inch which is the same rate it has been growing since using the product, my hair defiantly does grow a lot quicker! As I only use the hair mask I don't know if using the shampoo and conditioner will make it grow even faster? I may try it!
