So I had my hair dyed blonde 5 weeks ago and figured I'd show what it looks like if any other fuk'er ever wants to give it a shot. Would not recommend if you do not want to get stared at by strangers and take a lot of shit from friends.

Had this done in quite the expensive salon only to hear from my old hairdresser yesterday that she wouldn't have let me leave the place looking like that. Apparently it had to be de-coloured twice and then dyed blonde but I only had it de-coloured once making the result too yellow/orange. Fixed that a bit by using silver shampoo and letting it sit for 30 minutes.

Anyway, results after letting it grow for 5 weeks and getting a new haircut yesterday:

Hold on a second, remember years ago everyone would take the piss out of Seenmy for his long hair and beard and now every second person in Dalston, shoreditch etc has that look

Opinions/experience with Kevin Murphy products - looked at gritty.buisness for a matte finish with a bit of volume and hold for a cut with shortish sides and long top?

All comes to water v oil based.

Water based not as good but don't transfer and can wash out daily, Layrite and Suavecito quite widely available.

Oil based a lot cheaper, generally less chemicals and better hold / shine. Murray's, Sweet Georgia Brown, Dax all have good options depending what you're after.

Murrays original is very strong and heavy, cant get on with it myself. They also do a Superlight which is decent though. Best to get one of each and experiment using a bit of a heavy one (perhaps at front / any cow licks) and a lighter one daily to top it up and add shine.

Found layrite great but the hold isn't the best if you have really thick hair

Also buy some of this,


Heavy oil-based pomades are almost impossible to wash out but this helps.

My hairdresser said to get some sweet gorgia brown. It's just like dax wax.
Worlds gone mad.

Anyone recommend any good hair sprays? Using some cheap Schwarzkopf glue spray but don't really like it.

Mens/Womens products, not fussed.

99p firm hold from sainsburys works for me. I have very thick hair and needed something that would keep my hair in place because even industrial-glue strength product won't hold it on it's own, so if you're in a similar situation give that a try.

I didn't exactly shop around for it though, just put it in my basket one day doing shopping and it has worked fine for me since

Anyone who knows me in real life has me on FB insta will know exactly what I'm talking about.

Only reason non water based is I straighten my hair so would make it curly again
