Hello my amazing readers,
With Spring right around the corner, some of you might be looking to switch up your hairstyle and if so; this is a good read for you!
I will be the first to admit that last year, I went a little overboard with changing my hair color and managed to fully damage my hair by going platinum blond. Although being a full blond was super fun for a minute, the maintenance was just far too exhausting. I spent more time at the hair salon than I did with any ‘one’ of my friends in a given month (lesson learned: don’t defy nature to that extent, instead work with it).
Since last Summer, I have slowly but surely been building back my hair strength with natural deep conditioning masks. But I also wanted to stay away from dying my hair so much and started looking for hairstyles that would work with my natural hair color.
That’s when I came across the hair trend “Tortoiseshell”, which I would consider a branch of the Ombre hairstyle, I was excited!! I am currently trying it out and I can already tell you that my hair condition has improved a lot. While I still get my roots done, leaving the bleach out of the top of my head has been wonderful!
With darker roots and just a few streaks of highlights at the ends of my hair, Tortoiseshell is one low maintenance hair trend that I plan on sticking to!
Here are some example of what this trend looks like:
Let me know what you guys think!
