The last couple of weeks I've been thinking about poor Lyrics hair which, as you will remember, is breaking badly at the front. Well it's breaking all over to be honest, but it's not quite so bad at the back. This is the colour of her hair in daylight, it's what I would call a 'dirty' blond, or maybe it's 'ash' blond? If anyone can help me with the name of this colour, I'd be really grateful.
Her hair actually doesn't look so bad in these photos but it's very thin in real life and there are several rows of empty plugs going backwards from the forehead. Jackie R suggested taking some from the back to reroot at the front, but there's just not enough at the back despite how thick her plaits look.
I bought some blond hair but when I got it home I realised that it is
just not the right shade of blond. I then bought a hair dye in a darker blond, tried
that, it made not one iota of difference!! Well except to make the hair harder to comb through! I wonder if I should have used a fabric dye seeing as the hair is synthetic!
A very pale blond....I think this is too light for her:
This is a darker shade of blond but it's very 'yellowy':
Here are both blonds mixed together: I don't think this photo is a good representation of the colour though as her own hair looks almost 'green' ...
I have searched for other shades of blond on the internet and not found any that appear similar to her existing hair colour. I am not planning on partially rerooting, I will probably have to do her whole head, so it's not so much getting a match but a shade that suits her skin colour.
I really don't want to waste any more money on blond hair if it's not going to work. I even took her to a wig and hair extension shop in Malaga, only to find that the store had closed down...doh!
Therefore I have been thinking, shall I go for another colour entirely? I was thinking about auburn. I don't want to change her to brunette as I already have my brunette Lindt. She would be entirely different and I'd not have to worry about the shade of blond. But do I really want to change Lyric that drastically? I really don't know. :(
I think in all honesty that I'd prefer her to remain blond. Keeping her own hair isn't really an option as it is so badly damaged, fragile and brittle and I feel that before long she will have an even bigger 'comb over' than she has already!!!!
I would welcome any suggestions.
