So some may recall the incredibly stupid thing I did about 6 weeks ago when in a fit of PMS madness/depression I decided to colour my hair. Not so unusual as I have coloured my hair for the last 20 years. But this time it went horribly wrong.
First of all, I dye my hair blonde. I used the same colour for many years and then the bastards went and discontinued it. So I was left adrift in a sea of shades and options. My last blonde colour was a platinum blonde.
At Christmas I decided to go light auburn. It turned out ok and I really like it. Which got me thinking..I could do this whole dark funky red thing. It's gotta be easier than keeping up the blonde. WRONG!
In February I picked up a box of beautiful Cinneberry Auburn. It was gorgeous on the box, not so much in my hair.
The first couple of inches of my hair were a fabulous red and the midshaft of my hair was BLACK!!! Oh it was horrible. I cried. Big J cursed. Little J asked "Why Mommy Why?"
It was a semi-permanent colour so it should have washed out in 28 shampoos. HELL NO!
6 weeks later and colour was still staining my towels.
Hubby had bought me a 'hair colour' for Valentines Day and today I used it.
The hairdresser had a good laugh at my story, tears streaming down her face when I asked if I could go straight back to blonde. My only alternative was to hack off what I could and blend in the rest.
I'm quite pleased with the end result. I don't look like "me" yet but its getting better.
You can clearly see the black sections in my hair
Very short and colourful
So hows that for a post about nothing? Seinfeld would be proud
Dear Big Kid, - The other day I was sitting in my room as you played outside with your brother and some friends, and I heard the booming voice of a man speaking with alarm...
