So, as you know from my previous post called How to Lighten your hair Naturally - I was trying to lighten my hair with Lemon and Honey, but It just takes a lot of time. and I, of course, am a very impatient person. Well, my mom saw that I was very desperate about it and she offered to dye my hair ombré instead. I was surprised cause my whole life she told me I could dye my hair only after I graduate. I was glad she changed her mind. So we went to this salon. My hairdresser advised me to buy wellaton 8/1 and see if the color was right. I didn't want my ombré ends to be super light, just few shades lighten that my roots. But apparently my hairdresser didn't understand. So when we went to buy a hair-dye it was a blond haired girl on the packaging and i didn't want to be blond. But we were like -'okay she knows better'. So, she cut my hair and was preparing to dye it when i told her - 'it won't be blond right?' - she (my hairdresser)looked at me surprised. so, what she was going to do was discolor my hair and then make it blond. Thanks god I raised a voice and told her. But we still didn't need to buy a new Hair-dye because i found out that if you put blond hairdye on brunette hair like mine it won't turn out blond, just few shades lighter that your hair. then she took sections of my hair teased the bottom part and put more hair-dye on the bottom part than the upper part of my ends. It's not like I don't like blonds, I just wanted it to look natural and I don't think being blond would suit me at all. It was my first experience of dying my hair and I love how it looks now. I was a bit nervous but everything turned out even better than I expected. and if you are planning to dye your hair my advice would be: find a picture of what you want and what you don't want to help your hairdresser and stay satisfied with the results.
Here's a picture of my hair!
1. My first life hack would be for waking up early. It's not like it ever been a problem for me but still, for a lot of people out there it is a problem. So there's this app on appstore called - Sleep cycle. And what it does is it records the movement that you make during your sleep and wakes you up when you are in a lighter phase of sleeping.
2. Have you had times when you wanted to wear that one shirt in particular to school, it's wrinkled and you don't have any time to iron it? Well, if you did, i got you covered. All you need to do is Iron it with your flat iron or buy a wrinkle spray on Amazon.
3.We all use Wikipedia right. Sometimes even for Homework. It's really useful and all but sometimes there's just too much information and you can't remember it all. So my tip would be using simple.wikipedia.org instead it's the same information but some details are absent and if you want to concentrate more on facts than useless details That's for you.
4.this tip is for remembering. So what i usually do is - I write down something that I want remember then, record the same thing on the voice memos and listen to it while reading it as well. so you see it and you can hear it, and it kinda works for me. It's just something to try out.
5.I've heard about this a lot but I actually have never tried it out. the last tip is to chew a specific gum that you don't usually chew and you have to chew it during a class that is very important and when you are writing a test about the same subject just take the same flavor of this chewing gum and chew it during writing. scientists say that it helps to remember stuff.
6.Sometimes your battery is too low and you don't have time to charge it. So here's a tip Just put it on Airplain-mode and charge it that way to make your phone charge a lot faster.
So, Everybody is preparing for the first day of school or at least worrying or thinking about it. We all want to feel confident - therefore look good.
That's why I am on a Diet from now on. It's not like a Diet - It's more like I eat everything healthy (even though I can't stop thinking about those cupcakes I have in a fridge since yesterday) So I started My diet today. I know some people don't like seeing posts about diets and workout tips but for other half of the people that's a very interesting article . So I found a way to stay on this healthy diet. I asked a friend to be my coach - she controls me. I send her sms every time I put something in my mouth. and send her direct instagram pictures of what i eat - and so does she. That keeps us stay motivated.
Also, I found this very cool app called 'MyDietCoach' - It makes you set your goal. For example I want to lose 5 kg in one month. of course I don't only eat healthy I work out too. so it makes you set your exercising - it can be anything - Horse riding, Ballroom dancing, Pilates, Running and etc. You can visit My google+ page, I posted a screenshot of this app and you guys were interested in what it was. If you are interested in what kind of workouts I do, you can check out my other posts about that. Workout Tips and Updated Workout Tips
I wanna announce that I will be going back to school shopping and I will make a very interesting post out of it.
Btw I'm super close 50 followers. So I may put up something special for the next post!
I'm sure, first day of school is very important for all of us. Everybody wants to look their best. Also most of us, girls are not allowed to dye our hair and if you want to make your hair lighter naturally- I got you covered! These two techniques bring out your natural highlights. So, you saw all those beautiful pictures of Ombré hair on Tumblr and WeHeartit - Here's the way to make your hair Ombré without dying it.
For First Technique -
A spray bottle (you can pick one up at most dollar stores)
The juice of two to three lemons (depending on the length of your hair)
1 teaspoon raw honey
½ cup water (distilled is best)
Mix ingredients together and let the concoction sit for half an hour. This allows the natural hydrogen peroxide to activate.
What to do:
Wash hair with silicone-free shampoo and towel-dry (silicone can coat strands and prevent the mixture from "taking").
Shake the spray bottle to mix.
Generously spray ends with mixture. It’s up to you how ombréd you want your hair. For very subtle ombré just spray a couple of inches up, for a more noticeable effect, spray lower half of the length of your hair.
If you want to attempt the ombré look use a toothbrush to apply the mixture to the strands that frame your face (just make sure not to get the mixture in or around your eyes).
Be careful not to get any of the mixture on your skin–it can accelerate burning when in the sun. Put a towel or sarong over your shoulders for extra protection.
Now it’s time to go outside, but not before you apply SPF 30 on exposed skin.
Sit in the sun and read your favourite beauty blog for 30 to 45 minutes.
Wash mixture out of your hair and follow with a hydrating treatment, moisture mask or leave-in conditioner.
Style as normal.
Lightening your hair naturally is a cinch, you just need to remember a few guidelines.
1. You can never fully predict the outcome–darker brown hair may go reddish-orange and black hair might not see much change at all. It’s best to test a small strand first to be sure.
2. This is a gradual process–you’ll need to repeat the process over a few days or weeks to start seeing a change.
3. Even though you’re using natural ingredients, it’s still quite drying and can cause split ends so it’s important to use a really good hydrating treatment after each session.
4. Remember, the effects are permanent.
If you want an auburn or chestnut red ombré, try adding a teaspoon of ground cinnamon to the mix or substitute the water for rhubarb water (boil fresh rhubarb stems, strain and cool).
Second technique is what I actually do with my hair. It's in Russian but you can translate it with a 'translate' button on the side or watch tutorials on how to lighten your hair with honey.
Чтобы добиться результата омбре на волосах без вреда, необходимо приготовить следующую маску.
Смешайте небольшую порцию шампуня с щепоткой соли или соды и вымойте голову. Это смягчит волосы.
Промокните волосы полотенцем и дайте им подсохнуть.
Теперь нанесите мед на волосы (лучше акациевый) и распределите на кончики волос, чем ниже тем обильнее. Для длинных и густых волос может потребоваться много меда.
Утеплять голову не нужно, так как в тепле реакция меда замедлится. Для удобства можно покрыть волосы легкой косынкой. Держать медовую маску на волосах нужно не менее 1 часа, затем смыть.
Осветляющий эффект получается в результате выделения из меда особого окислителя, схожего по действию с перекисью водорода, только более мягко воздействующего на волосы. С помощью такой маски можно даже частично смыть старую краску с волос, так как мед вымывает пигмент красок из структуры волоса. В результате цвет получится более ровным, а волосы станут мягкими и шелковистыми.
As you noticed I've been publishing a lot of friendship bracelet pictures on GooGle+ and a lot of you guys liked it. I thought why not make a post about it, cause i also think that Friendship bracelets are fun and cute accessories for school, so they will be perfect for my first post in #B2SwithAnne (back to school) series.
Making friendship bracelets is very easy and entertaining- once you get the hang of it. There are plenty of tutorials and billion different patterns. All you need are 4 knots and patience - that's all. There are easy, normal and Alpha patterns. Of course you have to start with easy ones like : Candy stripe, Chevron and etc.
Actually It's my Best friend Sally who told me about these. (Oh, Btw you should definitely check her out Sally-s.blogspot.com)
I started making them very long ago but my mistake was that I wanted to start with the difficult and prettier ones. That didn't end well.
There is a website where you can find a lot of different beautiful Bracelet patterns and after watching several tutorials you won't need to watch them anymore, patterns will be enough. - friendship-bracelets.net Katrinaosity is a very cool channel for beginners.
