kind of dressed like spring

normally i don't pick out white or cream dresses for myself, it seemes a bit much for my hair and fair skin (kind of like why i also don't wear yellow near my face)... but right now i'm really liking this dress. it's mother's day, so i'm hanging out at my parents house - and my old childhood cat (17 years old!) matches me perfectly. :]

You do your hair yourself, right? HOW? It's so pretty and white. Mine came out too yellow/gold :/

It's a lot of maintenance, but a fairly simple routine.

First I bleach my roots with Kaleidocolor:

Then tone it with Clairol Demi 10A:

I process both products with 30 Volume Creme. Sometimes I even use 40 because I have thick Scandinavian hair, but careful if you have fine/delicate hair.

Toning is the important part! It takes the yellow away & leaves your hair brighter. Clairol is using soy based formulas now that are much nicer on your hair too.
