We blinked and summer was over. For some of us, we tried to hold onto that last bit of summer tan, for others, we still have the blonde hair to prove summer even happened. I am one of them.
For the first time since 2011, I decided to become a blonde. Well, last time it definitely was a more yellow... and from a box! Didn't everyone go through that teenage stage, where box blonde was apparently in... god help us all! Fast forward 8 years, my hair recovered and I finally decided it was time again to make a change.
This time I actually went to a hairdresser, that specialized in blondes and cared about healthy hair! Someone who would take it slowly & made sure I was happy with the change. It was SO WORTH IT! FINALLY I lived a life like a blonde. I changed my clothes, my style, my make up, all to suit this new lock of hair.
THEN CAME HAIR CARE! No matter what you do as a newly blonde, never ask your friends for advice. You will have super conflicting ideas about what products work and what doesn't. How something amazing worked for them and killed another girlfriend's hair.... NO THANKS! So this is where my actual blonde journey began.
Welcome the world of research. I started the basic way... typing "Blonde haircare" into google. I mean every label will sell themselves as amazing. After a few hours of searching, I said goodbye to that idea. Next came the search of Instragam. Searching every great blonde and stalking every single photo to see if any haircare was mentioned. Then my LIGHTBULB moment arrived. I had already tried a brand in past which worked so well when I was a brunette (via stalking other people with gorgeous hair), so I had a quick check to see if they had anything for blondes.
BOOM! Magic happened! I welcome Pump Hair Care blonde shampoo and conditioner into my life. Of course, its all trial and error at the start. Will it work, will it not. My very first time using it, I walked into work and everyone went "WOW, your hair is so blonde. Did you go even lighter?". No, actually I just found a shampoo which refreshed my blonde without the price tag. Then every wash after that came the endless blonde compliments.

I seriously lived another life as a blonde. Feeling confident in my skin, living out that summer glow. I recreated myself, which gave me this inner confidence to work harder towards my business & my success. I WANT EVERYONE TO FEEL CONFIDENT! It is one of my major goals for 2019 to encourage my own mini community to climb out from under that rock and live their best life. THE LAST THING I WANT is to find out someone didn't go 110% because of their hair. I know you girls know what I mean. A bad hair day ruins everything! Believe me, I went through it for 2 years and this seriously changed everything.
Even as the cooler months roll in and I start to head down the road of brunette, I know I will be back next summer & I know who to trust for great hair.
