[Beauty] Busting Hair Myths - Colouring After Black Dye & Damaged Hair

Myth #1 Once you go black you can't go back (to colour)
Myth #2 Damaged hair should be left black and natural
Wrong, and WRONG. After my previous 3rd round of bleaching, my hair pretty much gave up so I dyed my entire head black and cut off whatever I could. I was quite sick of my black hair already considering I haven't had black hair in a long time. BUT at the same time I didn't want to kill my hair all over again.
So GLAD to have coloured hair again! Even though it wasn't the pink/red/blue that I wanted.
Got this done at A Cut Above Salon in Sunway Pyramid. Really clean and spacious place with lots of chairs and friendly stylists.
After telling them about my 'bright plans', they were shot down due to the Sahara Desert condition of my hair. Admittedly, I already knew bleaching to get those colours would be a bad idea but I guess I'm just stubborn as hell. In the end, I was advised to go for light brown highlights instead.
Also got a bit of a trim.. It's important to go for a salon you can trust because your hair is in their hands!

Myth #1 Once you go black you can't go back (to colour)

The last few inches of my hair were from my previous bleaching + black hair dye but as you can see, the colour came out fine and very evenly with the rest of my hair. That did not happen without a fight though.. The stylist did mention that it took a little bit longer for the colour to stick.

Myth #2 Damaged hair should be left black and natural

Obviously that would have been better but let's experience it all while we're still young eh? I specifically asked for a colouring that would not touch my roots and bleaching was ruled out. Hair blowing and a good brush can make your damaged hair feel super soft and smooth. Hair masks and conditioners have been a GREAT help in making my hair go from 'quite damaged' to 'manageably damaged'. I've also ordered a hair vinegar online which everyone is raving about so we'll see how that works out.

  1. Hair vinegar, is this from CP-1 by any chance? I'm currently trying that out but I stopped when I coloured my hair as I don't know if it's colour safe.

    Interesting to bust the hair myths for sure. I actually found that bleaching made my dry hair more manageable somehow.

  2. Your hair looks lovely. I see you are all ready for CNY already with the new style. Your colour has given me an idea with my own hair.

    1. Haha yes! And because the colour is not until my roots, it'll still look ok by CNY

  14. I'm jealous! I wanted to do my hair for CNY too but something urgent came up and not really a good idea to colour my hair after funeral. And yes, I prefer not whole head colour, can't stand the root hair difference later.
