I woke up this morning in a very good mood, which is rare. It was helped along by the fact that I had about a half hour to myself before Rich and Livvie got up. Sitting in the quiet in the dark is very therapeutic.
So I decided to do what any self respecting invincible person would do. I decided to color my hair.
Well. I chose medium reddish blonde. Now, you have to understand that my hair is dark auburn for real, with some highlights that I've thrown in. My roots were literally 2 inches long though, so they had to go. No biggie. I bought the hair color, brought it home, and applied it to my head.
I watched it in the mirror. I knew that it wasn't going to BE reddish blonde, but I was hoping for a bit of a lightening. Well, yeah. It was starting to lighten alright. It kept getting lighter and lighter until I started to get scared. So I did what else any self respecting invincible person would do. I rinsed it 2 minutes early in a panic.
Wet it looked like a carrot. It truly did. I was starting to freak out, but Rich convinced me to wait until it dried before getting too upset. Normally my hair dries quickly. In fact, it drives the hair dresser nuts because she has to keep spraying it down when she cuts it. This time, not so much. It stayed wet for over an hour. By then I was ready to chew my nails off and go get brown hair dye.
Once it was dry I was surprised. It's actually not bad. It's a lighter auburn color than I had, the highlights are still there only now they're gold instead of blonde, and I actually look ok.
I AM invincible.
