I did this look a few days ago for an evening out. Last week, I got my highlights/roots done since my hair was growing out. It's actually partial highlights at the top and I didn't do anything to the rest of my previous hair. They bleached my roots again and toned it with a dark ashy blonde colour to match the rest of my old hair and tone it down. My hair seems pretty dark in person but in outdoor pics and indoor flash pics pick up alotta colour.

I also got my bangs cut and the hairdresser made it shorter than what I wanted so I was pissed off but now I'm beginning to like it. lol

In the pics below.....I just washed, shampooed, conditioned and then applied a curl cream while my air was wet and let it air dry. I blow dried my bangs with a round brush for volume.

Who doesn't like cam whoring? :p
I put my bangs back in this pic. ;)

I've been using ProClaim Olive Oil Glossing Shampoo and the Conditioner for about 2 weeks now and I noticed that my hair is shiny, less dryer and doesn't get into tangles as much as before. I got this shampoo during Sallys sale of buy 2 get 1 free deal. This might be aimed towards African-American type of hair but it works well for me. I used to use their conditioner only before and I loved it. It makes my healthy looking even though my hair goes through alotta highlight/colouring torture. I use this when I ONLY want to let my hair air dry and go with natural wavy hair.

I use the Coloureese Voluminizing Shampoo for Colour Treated Hair when I have plans on straightening my hair.

I mostly get my hair products during sales at Sallys.

This is the curl cream that I use.

Coloresse Curl Creme for Wavy/Curly Hair
(Product Link)
I apply this to my hair when it's wet and I let it air dry. I love how it keeps the natural waves in place and doesn't make my hair too frizzy at all. I also like how it doesn't give you the hard curly feeling or make it all in "crispy" like texture. lol It leaves my hair wavy and soft. It's around $10 but you get it even cheaper when you get it on sale at Sallys. They always have it throughout the year. I always try to get these products when they have Buy 2 get 1 Free deal. This is my third one and I always love to stock up during sales.

Cute Hair =) it suits you!

The bangs look pretty cute. My hair bleached so much out on the beach and I look so awful chequered, lol. I got some more highlights bleached yesterday (by myself, lol) and I'll tone them down today or tomorrow. I'll try not to touch my roots since I want to grow my natural hair colour out, that will be difficult, hehe...

Thanks LADIEZ! *hugs*

Addicted2Fashn: St Germain is lighter (bolder) and Snob is a bit toned down. I dont own Snob but I don't think I would wear it alone without a lipgloss. I would just get St Germain since it's LE lol and I'm sure you would wear it with a neutral lipliner and a lipgloss to tone it down.

Sisa: Yeh...I know what you mean..I love colouring my hair. I can never bleach it by myself're brave! I dont have the guts lol

I also got Proclaim glossing olive oil shampoo and conditioner after seeing it on your blog!
I am so happy with it, due to dying my hairs they became very dry and dull, but this shampoo is a life saver! Also it smells so good!
I also used this on my 3 year old daughter, her hairs are not frizzy any more! Also it is gentle since she was comfortable with it like it did not burn her eyes or anything! I was using tear free baby shampoo on her hairs but hairs were frizzy and I had to use smoothing cream on hairs to calm her hairs down! But this shampoo worked out good!
Thanks XINA
