Hey ladies, this is Erica Johnston and welcome back to my channel I decided to film in my backyard today as this is the last official weekend of summer I’m proud to say that I have gone a year and a half without Coloring my hair. So with this transition comes a big change for me I’m going to be 40 in a couple days and I’m actually really excited. Yeah, we’re gonna have a big party. I’m actually extremely excited about turning 40. It’s not as scary I know that for some women it is a tough age And we all have our numbers right whatever that is. So last week. I I posted a video and in it I mentioned that I don’t have any teaching job lined up for September and Sure enough. I got a call literally like I don’t know three hours after that video was posted and A principal from a school close by she said that they’re reorganizing their school And she’d love it if I could come in and set up a grade two classroom now I don’t know whether or not I’ll be able to keep this job because we have a lot of rules and regulations in Ontario right now, but I’ve got pretty good seniority and And I know these kids so fingers crossed. I really would love to have a class So we’ll see but if I do have one it’s definitely gonna be a lot of work a lot of my time So I’m gonna continue doing these Videos regardless as long as there’s interest from you, so don’t worry about that But just some of my other like the other sort of ideas that I had the fitness videos that sort of thing Might take just a bit of a back seat that’s all But no worries. So anyway I’m just I’m very very excited So new chapter in my life Potential job things are things are pretty good. So last week I did a video on a little experiment. I Used hydrogen peroxide to lighten or to try to lighten the yellowing that I have in my hair It actually feels really nice It’s um with the conditioner in it. It doesn’t feel I don’t think this is going to end up being dry I mixed hydrogen peroxide with conditioner and water and made a little spray mixture and put it on my hair and I felt like it did sort of brighten my hair a little bit overall But I didn’t feel like it Got rid of the yellowing. So in case you were sort of thinking about trying it yourself, I Don’t know if it’s necessarily worth it. Like maybe if you’re completely if you’re completely White or silver Nice great. It’ll give you some nice maybe brightening But if you’ve got dark hair as a lot of you have commented to me and you said you know what you have a lot Of dark strands still you might want to stay away from using hydrogen peroxide because it’ll lighten your dark hairs as well Yeah, so I think that I’m just gonna just stop with the experimentation for a while and just let things be I also kind of realized that the yellowing that I have now in my hair is Not from a straightening iron. It’s actually from the Sun which I’m sitting in right now without a hat… You know, it’s Coming to the end of our summer right now here in Canada and I really I’ve been careful like, you know when I sit by the pool, usually I’ll have A straw hat on or something like that, but to be honest with you I’ve gone outside a lot without a hat on and I’m not really a hat person. Like I I like to just be free and You know enjoy the outdoors and all this kind of stuff. So I Guess over time. I’ll have to figure out like You know how much yellowing do I really want to put up with right and it’ll be interesting to see – In the winter months, you know, we start to wear toques and all this outdoors and it’s freezing like – 40 Celsius but it’ll be interesting to see my hair grows out from that point and how silver it is, you know, like how much silver there is and how Much really is caused by the sun because I think that that’s what it is Yeah, so I’m I’m trying to just accept Things like this like, you know, it’s kind of silly to be over-the-top about This blonde. It’s actually kind of blond to be honest. So it’s kind of silly to be over-the-top about it So I just need to just move on and stop talking about the yellow. So I got a comment from one of my subscribers her name is Beth Kawa – I don’t know if I’m pronouncing her name right And she commented on my 17th month update and she said that this would have been her 17th month As well transitioning she said but three months ago. I had a weak moment and colored my hair so while it was great for the first month, I Really regret it now and I’m back to square one. So Ladies if you’re close to giving up think long and hard, it’s no fun starting over so I thought that That might give you a little bit of inspiration because I know it gave me some Some food for thought that’s for sure. Like I’ve I’ve definitely had moments where I think about going back to brunette, so if you’re thinking about Dyeing your hair and getting rid of the silver covering it up Really take the time. Like Don’t rush that decision because it’s a long process that you (laughs) It’s a long process that you’ve already gone through so upcoming videos I’ve got ideas. I want to do a video on hair products. This is a huge topic on This channel like we are all talking about So many different hair products that we use. So what I want to do is sit down kind of figure out What we like what we don’t like and go with that so I think that’ll probably be my video for next week So if you’re interested be sure to If you haven’t already subscribed, be sure to subscribe. So I just want to mention as well that your comments mean a lot to me so keep the comments coming and You know Maybe when you’re writing a comment scroll through and see what some other women have written and respond to them to you because there’s a lot of great questions and inspiration out there, too, so With that being said, I hope that you have an amazing week. Good luck for those of you who are parents with back to school Until next week I gotta stop this for a second. Hey guys, it’s me, Everett Johnston. I’m back here. Today. We’re gonna be doing some good stuff and also the last official Get it a video on Yeah, so I Wow that’s a loud cicada, that’s like literally over my head. Oh, I Know where is the Sun? Big black cloud Is that going to be like a thunder shower or something?
