So I was pretty fed up with the stupid issue over proof, so here are some photos. I'm not done with my hair and it's still a work in progress, but its much better than when I started. I've been changing to red hair from brown. I'm starting to also see red streaks in my roots as well, so my hair is actually groeing in red now!
TIME: been about 3 months since I decided to make the change. Didn't see results till about 2 months ago. More progress in the last 2 weeks. (As of 07.20.16)
1) Visualized: my hair growing out of the roots as red, visualized looking in the mirror and noticing red roots instead of brown. Everytime I washed my hair I imagined washing red hair and running my fingers through pretty red hair. I imagined people telling me "Wow you have beautiful red hair!" (made me feel happy).
2) Acted as if: with the term "rock it like a redhead" which gave me confidence and made me feel like I already had red hair, bought shampoo and conditioner made for red hair, bought auburn eyebrow pencil. All so that it feels real.
3) Started watching two subliminals (only 4 days in so no major progress) for changing to red hair. I thought it might help speed up the progress just a bit
First Picture was taken around New Year's Eve, on a cloudy day. Second was taken about 3 weeks ago, on a cloudy day. Usually cloudy days make hair look darker. Not this time.
So, its still not perfect yet but i am making amazing progress! Even when my hair is wet it looks much redder and lighter, instead of its old almost black color. And there's a streak in the back that, even when soaking wet, it looks pure red. Still having trouble with my iPhone camera, in that it boosts cool tones and not warm ones, so it makes my hair look washed out and 'ashy' in a way. That's the only time my hair doesn't look as red as it should. No biggie though! I still have a long way to go, but I'm making progress :)
EDIT: I added a pic as a reference for what I'm going for. Really great idea by Vanessa in the comments :D
I want the greenish eyes and freckles also. Definitely see some lightening in my eyes, but the freckles have yet to appear lol
I'm seeing so many new streaks of red hair coming from my roots which were always dark, but now seem to be getting lighter. I tried to find new hair ties that work for my hair since my old dark brown/black ones that used to blend in with my hair, no longer do and are waaay too dark! I found a pack with some light brown/auburn ones and they work really well and gave the rest to my sister who's hair is practically black. When i did that, I decided to compare my hair to my sister's, which was always a tad darker than mine, but not by much, and hers makes mine look insanely red! I didn't even realize it! Funny thing is, I always tell people that you could totally be changing some feature, but you don't notice it till you look back or find something to compare to and notice that there are changes coming; and i didn't even realize I was doing the same thing lol! I really need to take my own advice! ALSO, today I was with my best friend and she's blonde with blue eyes and she was talking about how over the years her eyes have become more blue-green and less blue, and how her once super blonde hair was becoming darker. And she turns to me and goes "you're lucky your hair and eyes are getting lighter! A few years ago I couldn't see your pupil and now your eyes are sort of hazel.. but sorta reddish brown too.. just like your hair!" And then about an hour later we were in the sun and she goes "man your hair and eyes have really lightened up! I didn't notice till now.." :D THAT was super cool! I've been visualizing a scenario similar to this for a while now and its coming true! Plus I keep seeing my lucky numbers EVERYWHERE! I KNOW, without a doubt, I'm already receiving my red hair! I already have it!
Also found a quote that has really helped me in the process. "The Universe responds not to what you want, but what you are." So by saying "I want red hair" The Universe says "Yes you do" And more wanting is delivered. By saying "I AM a redhead" and believing it/feeling it/knowing it, the Universe says "yes you are" And delivers. Here's a good video on it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fYKs38Wd3iQ&feature=youtu.be
After dying my hair black and putting my desire for red hair on the back burner for about half a year, I recently started up with more Feeling affirmations (saying affirmations but paying more attention to feeling good), and made a vision board on pinterest with my ideal hair color and type. Today, I went outside to take some pictures for a new profile pic on facebook and It wasn't till i was looking back on the photos here that i see how much my hair has changed! theres a new picture up now that shows what my hair is like now! See for yourself. It's also starting to get curlier which is another thing i wanted! Small little sections in the back are becoming curlier and when I had my hair done last, by my mom, she grabbed a strand and said, "since when is your hair this curly?? Your hair is changing a lot lately!"
I also got told the other day at work by a customer, "Wow I'm so jealous your hair is so red! Its gorgeous. i was supposed to have red hair since there are a lot of redheads in my family, but I'm stuck with brown!" and it was really fun to have other people notice it as well as validate my affirmations and prove that they are working.
Another instance like that happened today! A guy in my class said i reminded him of this one redheaded actress because of my hair and my smile! That was really fun.
Its fun to see others reacting to my vibrations so quickly! I love it!
Check the last picture to see my current progress!
DUUUDE that's awesome! Your hair is so amazing and the changes are so obvious! I'm so proud! You're awesome!
Ahh no way! Its fun to have red hair! My eyebrows havent but i bleached them and fill them in with an auburn pencil to make it easier for me to visualize having them naturally red. I think its working because they havent grown back in as dark as before. My eyes are just a tad lighter but nothing major. I kinda stopped worrying about them. I just want them to gain a little more green but if they don't, I'm not too disappointed.
Keep me updated on your hair too!
I will! I only recently noticed the red strands in my hair up close, and one lighter eyebrow hair that jumped out at me. My hair is still mostly dark but at least I know its working! Im going for green eyes and paler skin too, but im gonna focus the most on my hair for now.
Such a wonderful feeling realizing all this is real, thanks for your inspiration so far :)
that's so exciting! I still have to work on my roots since they seem to come in sort of darker than I want, and then lighten and redden after a little and it looks too dark around my face. But thats so exciting! The hair is the best part! I love walking through public and have people ask me if this is my natural color! It's so much fun!
Absolutely! And like I said, keep me in the loop! I'd love to hear about how your progress comes along!
Amazing results Maya! So happy for you! Im about a month into my own redheaded journey, and was wondering have your eyebrows caught up to the rest of your hair? And also are there any results for your eyes that youd like to share?
thank you so much! :D I sure am! and it feels great!
Is that last one your real hair now?
yep, thats what i said in the post
