I'm two months pregnant and have two months regrowth. One of these things I'd like to keep, the other not so much. Help me stay fabulous while I gestate!
Up until quite recently I've been bleaching my hair on one side, dying it fire engine red, and doing the other side in black, like this.
I love it but it's grown out and looks a hell of a lot rattier now. It's a fairly brutal process, and given that the first trimester is when I'm most fragile to harsh compounds in commercial dyes I've got to come up with a better plan. I've got fairly dark hair, very fine, shot through with grey and silver, and it takes dye up well but doesn't hold it.
So the question here:
If I were to cover the lot with henna, am I going to have weirdness due to the fact I've bleached the crap out of only half of my hair?
Am I going to have weirdness anyway because of the syntheticl dyes already in the hair shaft?
Can I get away with henna on the red side and indigo on the other, or is it just going to look weird and bland? An I better off just going black on the lot?
How feral does this stuff smell anyway? I'm fairly fragile to smells right about now.
Also: I'm clumsy as hell. How badly does it stain your scalp? How hard is it to get in there compared to commercial chemical dyes?
Any extra experience from those of you with creative hair making the best of it during pregnancy would be greatly appreciated. I've got another 30 odd weeks or so of this, so any and all inspiration would be wonderful.
