I straightened my hair today because I'm going to dye some streaks into it. (I'll update with pictures once it's done.) My hair is a lot longer then I thought it was! It's a good three inches longer, and I always forget how weird my hair color is.

I call myself a ashy brown, I have a lot of blonde in it, but I am definitely a brunette.

I found a coarse hair today too! Not that that has anything to do with this topic, but I thought it was cool.

Anyway, picturess!

Alright, it's all colored in! No bleach what-so-ever. I used SPLAT Color Accents and I left the dye in for about an hour and a half. I may redo it later and leave it in for longer with bigger chunks. View from the back. (With natural wave. It's still a little wet, the dryer it gets the more the color shows.)

Ponytail, there's a purple and blue strip.

I love your hair! It's so thick :) What colour are your highlights?

That picture is all natural. And thank you! It's taken me a while to love my thick hair!

I'm putting blue and purple and pink in with no bleach so it's less stated. I'm sitting here with a saran wrapped head.

Your thick hair looks great. The highlights should look great.

Another vote for pics of streaks! :D
I've got a very similar natural color, and would love to see how yours come out without bleach. What dye are you using?

Your hair looks lovely, it is a very nice colour and I think the streaks will look fun.

Can I please ask though that you don't equate hair-straightening with 'practising self harm'. As a recovering self harmer, I find your thread title inappropriate. I don't wish to be rude, just wanted to raise the issue in a polite way.

Thanks. :flower:

You have beautiful hair! It happens to me too: when I use the flat iron, my shoulder length hair looks longer. I hate my floppy layers!

Agreed. One session with a flat iron certainly isn't going to really harm your hair in the long run either.

That said your hair looks lovely and I can't wait to see how the colors turn out without bleach first.

Tried to fix the title, but I can't figure it out. I apologize if I offended anyone! And I updated with color pictures!

The purple and blue came out nice but I can't really see the pink.

Neither can I! Lol, I know it's in there somewhere but it's not showing up well. I suspect that as it washes out it'll show up more.

I didn't know that you had to straighten your hair in order to do streaks.
