Do not, under any circumstances, dye your own hair. Especially when you are getting ready to leave for a trip. Or, especially if you are going to be around people.
Case in point:
So I used to dye my own hair. Many years ago. Before I had a real-life-card-holding-certificate-on-the-wall hair stylist of my own. So sometimes my hair was brown, sometimes black, often reddish pink, which you may say should be orange, but no, not orange, reddish pink. And usually it was the very same box of dye.
Then I got a life. And a hair stylist. And good hair color.
But, through no fault of my stylist, and very long to-do list, I haven't had my hair colored, or cut!, for about 3 months. I have gray hair. I nice little patch of it right above my right temple. Cute!
So I grabbed my little ol' self a box of home color. And then proceeded to apply it to my hair. Which could really use a good haircut rather than a box of natural hair color medium auburn brown.
I paid particular attention to my roots and the patches of grayness.
After rinsing I realized a horrible mess. My roots are still dull and brown and lined with gray and the rest of my hair is, wait for it, reddish pink. Yuck.
The picture so doesn't do it justice.
So it's in a ponytail every day. Will be in a ponytail every day until after our long awaited vacation and then I will go see Shelba, my sister in law who will fix my color and give me a cute cut.
Until then, please don't look at my hair.
Do not, under any circumstances, even hard core chocolate withdrawals, DO NOT buy, bake or eat Low Fat Brownies.
So not worth it.
