Recovering Color-a-Holic

Friday, November 13, 2015

For those of you who are just now joining me on this journey 
I will give you a quick recap and catch you up to date! :) 

All my life I have wanted long, gorgeous and healthy hair
yet I was so addicted to changing my hair color that
the damage prevented me from ever achieving that goal.


After 6 months of Army training I got my hair chopped off to my shoulders. 


After two and a half years and two pregnancies I was finally
reaching my lifetime goal of long healthy hair. 

At least I thought so...
Late July I attempted to change my hair color to burgundy.
The color kept fading so fast that after a week I would have
dull, ugly, pink hair and I couldn't stand it.


So the dummy I am attempted to bleach my hair back blonde.


It took THREE MAJOR hair cuts to finally cut off all the fried/damaged hair. 
I also went back to a more natural light brown color until my hair was healthier.
The plan has always been to go back blonde when the time was right
and now after 8 months I am finally going to update you all!



Keep in mind that after having my son in May I did 
experience hair loss and more dryness slowing the growth.

I was determined to find something to help and despite
my most SKEPTICAL judgments I finally gave
It Works! Hair Skin Nails a chance to prove me wrong.
(This post is by no means paid for or false advertising. I do not sell It Works! this is an honest opinion + review.)


Not only am I thrilled how fast my hair is growing (finally)!
I am head over heels in love with how healthy my hair looks and feels!

The difference is mind blowing! 

I finally stopped wearing my extensions everyday because 
I no longer feel like my hair is hideous without them.
I actually love my long BLONDE healthy bob
and couldn't be more thrilled with how far 
my hair journey has progressed in the last year.

I have accepted that sometimes it takes a catastrophe to 
make you change your ways and as devastated as I was
holding half of my hair in my hand as it fell out...
I can say that it opened my eyes to how badly I was treating my hair.


  • I no longer binge color my hair or use hot styling tools on it everyday.
  • When I do style it I use heat protectant. 
  • I stopped using bleach and started going to a professional who uses a Hi-Lift color on my hair.
  • I no longer wash my hair daily stripping it of its natural oils.
  • I make sure to use proper moisturizing shampoo + conditioner.
  • I take my vitamins and It Works! Hair Skin Nails to help my hair stay healthy and grow. 


If you are going through these same struggles with your hair I hope my post encouraged you to take the steps to healthier hair.
