Hair :: Reunited (and it feels so good)

I have been on quite the hair adventure this year. I travelled through a bunch of colours but I am happy to say that I have finally made it all the way back to white. It has been a long journey from black and I have to be honest and tell you that my hair is a little bit crispy at the moment. Nothing that can't be solved with a little deep conditioning and continuing to avoid heat styling though!
They are not as awesome as the last time I shared an exclusively hair focused post but I am much happier with this do.
I feel like it might need one more mini all over lightening because I am super picky when it comes to the whiteness of my hair. This still seems a teensy bit yellow to me compared to how white it used to be. I'm on the fence about another lightening though because after my friends wedding in September I will be going back to some fun colours (I'm thinking pastels) and this is definitely white enough for that.
I feel so much more like myself with white hair and I am very happy to be back. I'm sure no one out there is as interested in my hair as I am but it's an exciting time for me and I wanted to share!

I hope everyone is having a great Saturday!

  1. This made me smile so much, I usually feel like I am interested in my hair far more than anyone would ever be! And we basically have the same 'do now, except mine are blonde, not white. Whatever, you look REAL cute ;)))

  3. You look so lovely, Elycia! I've always wanted to go really light but my eyebrows are so dark that I'd look ridiculous!

  4. This is a great look for you. I just love white hair!! My mum wore here white for a few months and she looked so great! I've been wanting to try it out, but with hair as long as mine that's a big commitment! I've also been wanting to try pastels :).

  15. You look so great no matter your hair color! You rock the lighter colors (blonde and white) so well you make me consider having the courage to try going lighter! I've only ever dyed my hair red...with non permanent dye.

  19. I started to follow you for your hair :) i love your pics and your cats too, and really you look so great with your white hair, wish i could have it this way but i'm sure it wouldn't look great on me

  20. Heyy!! I love how you hair looks right now, the white has the teensiest blonde touch, seriously no need to lighten again. Just gorgeous!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I totally agree with the comment above: I love this really light blonde, it gives you a softer appearance compared to the white-white hair.

  22. The white hair is my absolute favorite on you!!

  24. Super cute! I love it.
    If you're looking for a good deep-conditioning treatment for blonde hair, Marilyn by Lush is the bomb. I use it religiously. Also, it smells delicious.

    1. Oh thank you! I will look into that for sure. I can always use more deep conditioning!

  25. I think your hair looks gorgeous like this! The curls are adorable! <3

    Also, this is the first time I've seen your new layout! I love it! It's so fresh and crisp and neat and minimalist-chic! (Not that I didn't love your old template! That was equally awesome in a completely different way. ;D)

    Hope you're having a great weekend so far!

  26. I absolutely love your white/super light hair. This might sound silly, but your hair was the first thing that drew me in when I first visited your blog! Your fun hair and nails were actually the reasons I originally started following you. And, I mean, now I read your blog for so many other reason too. Be encouraged, you're adorable.

  27. Such a great hair color on you! Not many people at all can pull that look off!

  28. Your hair looks so good! As I already said on twitter! Luckily though you can pull all these colors off! The Beatles look was my least favorite though! =P <333

  30. you look absolutely beautiful :)

  31. Can't wait to see your pastels! I love THIS white on you. I think I prefer it to your whiter white (before). maybe it's just the FANTASTIC curls or the fact that you're wearing spectacles from my favorite collection... Gorgeous all around.

  32. It's so cute and it suits you!! Your a bombshell!!

  33. You look so good with white hair! I actually just whited my own hair - I went from my natural dark brown to a pretty decent pale blonde in a few weeks. Love it, can't wait to see your future pastel hair as well.

  34. Love this! Congrats on being back to white! I am leaving my white hair to go natural, only so I can grow it out before I venture back to dreamy white locks, I know it will happen some day. I love you as a platinum blonde! When I was fighting the yellowy bits in my hair I used this: http://www.sallybeauty.com/blonde-shampoo/CLAIRL3,default,pd.html?cgid=Hair01 every other time I washed my hair, if you do it too often it can turn a little grey, but it definitely got rid of the yellow without having to use harsh coloring chemicals.

    Love it all girl!

    1. Thanks! Yeah, I use a purple shampoo too and it does help but there are some pieces that are actually not as light as I would like them to be.

  35. All hair related things interest me, so thanks for sharing! :)

  36. I love the hair colouring and styling posts a lot! How can you pull off so many hair colours?!?! I've only ever had my natural blonde hair and then I had pink highlights a while ago. But I'm only almost fifteen so I have time to experiment. Do you have any tips for hair dying? Your hair is gorgeous and so are you btw! :)

  38. Light brown would look good on you, goes with your skin and eyes. And what eyes!

  39. Ah! Elycia! Your hair looks so cute! I really love the white on you two. But to be honest, I kinda love all the colours you've dyed your hair. I think you must have a really great complexion for different colours or something. ^_^ Love the new blog design too. It's simple, focuses on YOU and has bigger pics! :)

    1. I guess I don't "regret" it but I did start to hate it after a week!

  42. you look fabulous. i like irs (intensive reconsructing spray) by enjoy used with their luxury conditioner as a masque. works miracles. love the tight skirt under a short floaty dress! i'm so stealing that idea too!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Before you lighten more consider asking you hairdresser about a toner? It will cancel out the yellowness without damaging it more, since it isn't a permanent color, or lightener. I know blondes as light as yours lighten up on their own a bit after a few weeks. It's worth a shot! I am also licensed so I'm not just making it up! :)

  44. I love this! And I totally get all excited over hair changes too. I wish I could pull off white hair. You do it well!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Your hair is gorgeous like this! The white looks awesome on you and I've told you before, but the length and curls just looks insanely pretty and adorable. Every picture I see of you makes me want to chop my hair off and just embrace my curls. What products do you use on your hair now to let it go curly?

    ReplyDelete
  46. i love it! not only the color, but the cut! super cute.

    ReplyDelete
  47. You look absolutely perfect with your hair cut & color right now. Seriously, with all the other colors you're adorable, but I think I lost my breath when I saw these super recent pictures o_o Haha sorry for my random comment, I'll just go back to lurking now *lurklurklurk*
