No highlights until December. Done!

I went from June-December without highlighting my hair and it feels so good to reach the end. This was not easy. There were times when I was like “hey! i want fresh ‘lights in my hair!”, but I held out. I stayed strong. At the end of the six months, I actually started to love my rooty blonde hair more and more, and I would honestly go much longer, but I have a collaboration coming up that I should look a little more polished for. I’m having color done today and I’m thinking of doing a little change. Someone mentioned in a comment the other day that I should consider going dark..maybe I will?

The six month break was the way to go. I feel like my hair grew so much, and all it needed was a tiny trim every few weeks to keep it cleaned up. It would have been much more desperate with some more processing.

My advice for growing out your hair:
Keep your color jobs close enough to your natural color, so that you can stretch them out longer. Your hair and pocket-book will grow right before your eyes!

Also, use tons of this.

(all you colorists out there, forgive me for the above advice.)

    Your hair is soooo gorgeous with the blonde highlights. I can see you looking good either dark or blonde but can’t you do something dark and temporary just to see if you like it first?

    That is great advice for growing out your hair. As a stylist, I recommend another approach for people growing out their hair but either they are coloring their hair for grey coverage or they prefer to go a couple of shades darker. Go with a demi or semi permanent color. Yes it will fade more but it doesn’t give that hard line as the hair grows. it just fades as it grows. It’s better for your hair because they typically doesn’t contain ammonia. For clients going for grey coverage this is know as grey blending. You’ll get some subtle “highlights” where the color doesn’t fully darken the grey hair.
