I tried to dye my hair what I thought was the same colour as my roots; the last time I tried to do that was Dec 2008. It turned out a lot darker than I thought it would and personally I like my hair much lighter (oh if only I was born blonde) but c'est la vie. The colour of my hair is just arbitrary to my life now. Over the years my hair colour has just become something that changes with the seasons and my boredom so I'm used to it being wack. Soon enough it'll be different again.
To show you how my hair has changed over the years, I made a chart-picture-type thing. Collage?
I don't know what I'm talking about. Here it is:
This post has nothing to do with anything I normally blog about here. Maybe I can include a tip or something since I do a lot of DIY stuff here and my hair has basically become a giant ongoing experimental DIY project...
1. No matter how frustrated or bored you are, remember: cutting your own hair at 2 am is a bad idea.
2. Mixing a tablespoon of temporary red hair dye (i.g., Manic Panic) into your conditioner will help keep the colour fresh. But it will also ensure that you can't wear any light coloured shirts with your hair wet, stain all your towels and your shower curtain so it looks like that scene from Pyscho.
3. Dedicate one oversized t-shirt to hair dying so you don't ruin a new one each time you decide to change your hair colour.
4. Don't blog at 3 am because you will end up with posts like this.
