Why a blog?

I give up, easily.
Anything. Everything.
Because of a lack of confidence.

People won't like me, laugh at me, think I'm stupid.
That is why my entire life I hid away, in dark clothes.
Black, dark blue or grey.
Anything to make me invisible.

I never used make-up in high school because I didn't know how.
My hair was always the same because I had no idea what to do with it (ponytail, tightly pulled back, in case you're curious).

When I was 18 I got married and I wanted a change.
I wanted the real me to come out.
But I still had no clue how.

At 26 I started this blog.
So that I wouldn't give up, wouldn't forget where I was going.

This is my journey, feel free to walk it with me, every step of the way.
All my failures, all my mistakes.
But also my winnings, my happy moments and my bliss.
I'll be honored to have you with me.

My hair

Hi everyone,

Last week I decided that the first thing I wanted to handle was my hair. It was red, really red, like a ruby. After having it set on two times I was tired of the color and wanted to try something else, so I asked my hairdresser to put on a chocolate brown, convinced that it would cover the red because it is a really dark color.

When she washed it out I could still see a lot of red, when I told her about that she said that it was normal but once it was dry it turned out that the top of my hair was still red and the bottom was dark brown, it looked awful and all she said was that it would be better after a second time of coloring but for the sake of my hair I had to wait at least 4 weeks to dye it again.

When I left the salon and my husband saw my hair he told me to go back right away... If he says that then it's really no good, he always thinks everything is fine.

The point is that I am not a very assertive person so I needed a few minutes to go back and it was with a very scared heart that I stepped back into the salon.

Luckily the boss-lady was very understanding and tried to fix it with a washable color but then I felt like she was patching it up in an easy way for her... After that I decided to never go back there again because it made me feel really uncomfortable.

I left my hair alone for a few weeks but because she had put on a color that washed out, my hair didn't last very long in a good state. After 2 or 3 weeks the red came back and it looked awful...

I had no idea what to do or where to turn because I have tried a lot of hairdressers but none of them could ever really do what I wanted or asked, except one, 7 years ago I had a great hairdresser, a lovely girl with blond shiny hair.

She always laughed, always friendly, never out for gossip, I loved her but the salon she was working in left my town and so did she...

Until a week ago, she came back with a salon of her own!

I was so happy.

Unfortunately, in the mean time, I had found a product that makes your hair lighter, or if you have a bad color, it will get rid of it. Not in my case... My hair did not only turn orange (yes, orange!), it turned out to be in three colors (yes, three!) as well! On top it was really light blond, in the middle it was bright orange and on the bottom? Exactly, dark and shiny red!

It seemed to me that I never have any luck with my hair...

I tried uploading a picture of the disaster hair look but it doesn't seem to work... I do have a vlog on youtube, so if you want you can check that out, just search for: fashiondisastercc

In the next blog I'll let you know how my hair was saved yesterday :)
