I've had a lot of questions about the reasons behind the name of this blog. Urban Dictionary defines Blondorexia as being 'a
This time I really chopped it all off, and had it bleached to a whitish platinum. I kept it this way for a good few months, but unfortunately decided to do my roots myself, and being inexperienced, my hair started to snap off due to overlapping the bleach too much. So I went on a little rehab, and left it alone for a few more months..the roots, as you can imagine, were horrendous.
Deciding I wanted to grow it out, I went for a dark brown thinking this would aid the process, but my blondorexia was definitely going to prevent that from happening...I kept the brunette for less than two months before bleaching it back to blonde, getting it gradually lighter and lighter until it was platinum again.
This cycle of bleaching it to the point of destruction, dying it darker to make it healthier then bleaching it all over again happened more times than I'd care to mention.
But I've finally had enough. I'm sick of my hair snapping when I wash it, of having little blonde hairs all over my shoulders, of having to do roots every month, and of forking out too much money just to destroy my hair. So I'm finally done; I'm going natural and growing it all out.
Moral of the story? Don't ever, ever, bleach your hair.
