After 8 years of home-dyed hair I am finally growing out my natural hair color, strawberry blonde. Since 8th grade I’ve always had crazy long hair so spending $250 on dying my whole head 5 shades lighter was out of the question. I settled with $12 box dye. Since I never put heat on my hair or rarely use styling products, I figured box dye once a year wouldn’t be too damaging. I’ve honestly been too lazy to dye it again and since the amber glow of my roots doesn’t contrast the super-blonde ends too extremely, I figured, why not grow it out? I then had the brilliant idea of dying my ends a tiny bit lighter to create a blonde ombre effect. Blondombre. I plan to rock this new hair at New York Fashion Week. I should probably get a trim so my roots grow faster (said no one ever…)!
