Once again with the hair....

Well. Hmmmmmm(scratches head). Okay.

I did it again. You'd think by now I would have learned my lesson, accepted my fate and just waited awhile until my hair color either faded or grew out. Nope. Not me.I just had to scamper off to Rite Aide (no I am not endorsing them or condemning them--just stating a fact) and buy some "Color Oops" Extra Industrial Strength Hair Dye Remover (repeat on the Rite Aide comment).

Followed the instructions to the freaking T....dry hair? check. Evenly disbursed? check. Allow 20 minutes to permeate hair? check. Shampoo and rinse at least twice? double check.

I step out of the shower and see a bit of red and a lot of black. Freaking poo! I took one disgusted look at my hair, said "screw it" and dragged my tired butt off to bed, wet hair and all. Cue to the next morning. I get up, shower, blow dry my mess out wishing I didn't have to go to class tonight looking all freaky when I paused and took a good look at what I had done to myself.

Wow. I have a faded, natural looking red at the top of my head which graduates into a pretty brown which graduates to black at the ends. If I was 10 years younger I'd feel pretty funky and trendy about now. It looks deliberate! It looks styling....in a toned down and not "look at me!" screaming kind of way. In other words: I LIKE IT! It will only look good for a few weeks or a month at most until my natural color starts to grow out but, for the moment, I am hip baby!

Too bad it was all by accident.

I will try and take a good shot under the lights so it'll look better (seriously guys, its subtle). It'll have to be tomorrow though 'cause my hair is up in a ponytail today and its not as visible...and yes, it did happen!

at least you were able to rectify your situation. Josh tried to help me fix a bad dye job before Hawaii, and I was left with blotchy brown and red hair, lol...oh well I guess I can always chop it off!
