Here's the view from the back! It has faded ALOT since I got it done, so don't be alarmed if its really blonde after you get it done. Trust me, it will fade! If you were like me, I freaked out haha!

Brushes and combs are your bestfriend. I LOVE this brush because it's supposed to be used when hair is wet, and it works GREAT! I combs through your hair like a dream. Also, it's much less damaging!

Purple shampoo and conditioner are key in this. However, only use the conditioner if your hair is ombr\u00e9'd, like I do, because you only condition the tips. Purple hair care brings out the brassiness.

IMPORTANT- only use purple products once or twice a week. For everyday, I suggest using a shampoo and conditioner made for colored hair, or if you want your hair to fade some more, use regular stuff.
