A few of my hair's favourite things...
3rd October 2012
I did a very naughty thing.
I totally over indulged on a very expensive swimsuit.
You may not think this is very naughty but I already had another, barely worn, very expensive swimsuit at home. I instantly felt guilty the moment I walked out of the store. The only way I could justify having two, stupidly expensive sets of swimmers was to vow that I would do a LOT of swimming this summer.
That shouldn‘t be a problem, right? I mean, we do live very close to one of the most gloriously adorned coast lines in the world. And we have a million gorgeous creeks, swimming holes and pools at our disposal. Buuutttt.. I flipping hate wetting my hair. I have bright copper hair - that fades the moment it hits chlorine AND I have a full head of tape extensions that take forever to style and are also prone to dreadlocking the moment they touch salt water. The decision was made - I was going to make my hair more swim friendly. Out came the extensions, on went the bleach. Goodbye copper. Heeelllllooooo Blonde.
Maintaining any hair colour over summer is always a struggle.
But I have narrowed it down to a few Must-Have items
