DIY trim and purple hair color refresh 💜💇🏻‍♀️

About 2 weeks ago I had used Ion Permanent Brights in Purple to color my roots and refresh my ends. But as you can see in the picture below, my hair had significantly faded and I was left with this faded purple that looked brown in some lights & a faded out purple with weird undertones in other lights. So I decided that since I had a 4 day weekend due to the Thanksgiving holiday, I wanted to refresh my color. I had also given myself a DIY trim using the ponytail method by Manes By Mell on YouTube, which I will link below if you want to check it out.

I used baking soda mixed with 20 volume developer and left on for 30 minutes with a bag to keep in the heat
This was the result after using Arctic Fox Purple AF in my bedroom lighting
These were taken today in the daylight.

These pictures are the before and after a using the DIY pigtail method to cut hair. I also trimmed about an inch off the ends
Here’s the tutorial video for the pigtail technique if you want to check it out

I just finished coloring my hair with Ion Color Brilliance permanent brights in purple using 20 volume developer & I love the results! I had to take a picture in the hallway of my apartment building to get a good lighting because of the rainy weather we’re having. 😁💜☔️🌧️

I’m sorry, but this stuff annoys me & gets my blood boiling 😡😤 you don’t believe the news. DON’T. You don’t trust the government. Fine. You want to be prepared. Be prepared. But stop taking stuff out of context & placing fear where fear does not belong. I hate conspiracy theories like this and I’m done listening to it!! If we are children of the living God, we don’t live out of fear. We are supposed to live out of faith. And I refuse to listen to anyone who spreads fear & panic!!

“He meant to say Feb. 24, which was the first day of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. He corrected it later for the record, but the correction did not matter.

Someone took the video clip of him saying Sept. 24, cut out the context around it and shared the soundbite on social media, where it caught digital “fire” and spread across the world extremely fast online. The damage had been done, and then others started to pile on.”
