i dye my own hair because it's easy and cheap...i never do anything fancy, just a similar shade to my real color, enough to cover the grey (yes, our family is known to prematurely grey).
but every once in a while, i decide to do something outside of the (literal) box. these impulse colors are
usually always fueled by hormones, and i almost always regret them afterwards.
so last week, i decided to add a little red to my hair. i saw one of those boxes that promises to lighten even the darkest of hair, and for some reason, i half believed them and bought it.
after what looked like a law & order episode in my bathtub, the color was washed out. i dried my hair and went about my business. you know, inside you cannever really see the red in your hair. and it wasn't until my kids kept exclaiming, "mama, your hair is so red, especially on the top!" that i realized that the box that promised to lighten even the darkest of colors did, in fact, lighten my hair, but only my grey, grey roots.
so now, because i don't want to ruin my hair with another box of color so soon after the red disaster, i will walk around with red roots. very red roots. luckily it's mostly only noticeable in the sunlight...and blog pictures. (you're scrolling back up now, aren't you?)
have you ever had a hair dye fail?
