So guys, I promise this is going to be the LAST post in my week-long hair saga.
Even after multiple toners my hair was still just not a shade of blonde you would find in nature. I was surprised how much it affected my self-esteem. However you feel about beauty standards, we feel so much better when we like the way we look.
If only for your own confidence, do things that make you feel good about yourself so that you can move about your life with the confidence that you should!
So after a bit of debating, I went and bought a hair dye kit. There was no salvaging the blonde. I decided to cover it up with a dramatic red. I’ve gone red before and I really like it. I did it myself (after a glass of wine!) for under $10 and in under 30 minutes. Yay for DIY.
I think it looks better, but more importantly; it makes me feel better. I’ve got my confidence back.
I think it’ll be a long time before I dye it again. I’ll be doing lots of deep conditioning to rehab the damage from so much processing. *sigh* lesson learned, ya’ll.
Meanwhile, on the keto-front, I am doing really well. I stopped tracking my food and macros a few weeks ago. I felt like I had the hang of it, plus, tracking everything you eat is really annoying! I step on the scale to check in every few days and so far I have maintained my fighting weight.
I feel really good mentally. I am sleeping better than ever and I still feel calm and focused 95% of the time. My only concern continues to be the dreaded “keto breath”. My husband said it’s gotten a lot better but I talk to so many people at work and I don’t want to have bad breath! I am currently experimenting with chlorophyll. It works amazing well to eliminate bad breath and even body odor. Plus there are plenty of health amazing benefits to using it. I’m definitely going to give it a shot and get feedback from my long suffering husband and report back! 😉
