A Huge Dilemma & Much Depression

I was fairly blonde as a child and I'd have to say that my hair color was gorgeous! My hair started to change color the more I aged and I'd have to say that my natural color is a mix between strawberry blonde and dirty blonde. I've been coloring my hair since I was 18 years old and I finally decided to be bold and bleach my hair. So at the beginning of the year I had my hair dresser bleach my hair. This is what we got! Pretty huh? I think so.
My hair lady gave me this special conditioner and told me to use it at least 3 times a week. I was a good girl and obeyed for the most part. I bleached my hair again sometime in the summer but I forgot to ask for more conditioner. I was stupid and thought that the stuff probably didn't help much anyway. We went on a cabin trip back in September and I had a bad accident involving my hair, a round brush, and a really hot blow dryer!!! I was styling my hair like usual when I happened to look at my brush and I saw a huge singed chunk of hair in it. It was very scary and I cried just a little. Shortly after the trip I began to notice my hair breaking on other parts of my head. Not cool. I finally went in for another hair appointment where we didn't bleach my hair and she cut it a little above my shoulders. Even after the cut and condition my hair continues to break all over my head. I'm serious when I say the breakage is all over. It's really sad. I don't want to damage my hair anymore than it already is so I've stopped styling my hair straight altogether. So those of you that see me a lot be prepared to see me with my crispy hair.
This hairstyle isn't as flattering but it is super easy and I don't have to apply much heat to create it. I think my hair broke due to many reasons. I plan on buying a new blow dryer and brush and we shall see if that helps any. Wish me luck on my hair growing process!!!

P.S. I really like the shirt I'm wearing in these pictures!! I wear it a lot!

I noticed your hair was all curly and fun the other night. I thought it was shorter because it was curly. I've always really liked your hair. I'm not a blonde fan. I generally like black and dark brown hair, but blonde really flatters you and makes you look really pretty and flirtacious. I'm sorry is breaking and crap. That really sucks. I would recommend Pantine. I love the stuff. It's supposed to strengthen your hair and make it look nice. It worked for me.

Yeah, bleaching and dying hair can cause serious damage. That is a good reminder to stay away from so much heat! I use my blow dryer and straightener probably more than I should! Your hair has always looked pretty no matter what you do with it. : )
