I will never dye my own hair again!

So...... Three weeks ago on a Friday I decided I was tired of my hair color and ever growing roots and I needed some new color. I usually dye it a medium brown/red but this time thought "why not dark brown!?!"

I head off to the local Target and pick out an expresso brown, came home, and began the hair dying ritual.

Not really a ritual but a routine. I change into a pair of black yoga pants and black shirt just in case the dye drips. I mixed the color together and follow the directions on the package. Applied hair color and set the timer for 20 minutes, the time it says on the box.

12 minutes later the hubby walked by and asked if I was trying to dye my hair black. I said "um, no" and then looked in the mirror.

Now anyone who dyes their hair knows that it always looks darker before it is rinsed out, but this was alarmingly dark. I decided to not chance it and rinsed my hair.

My hair was BLACK. And by BLACK, I mean BLACK!!!!!

Oh shit!

Stop by later this week to see what happened next!

  1. For some reason my hair throws lots of red pigment, although I am not a red head at all.

    Ive learnt the hard way. If I don't put a colour in that includes red, then I end up with green or orangy hair.

    Home colour kits are so much fun, aren't they! You never know what you will get.


Your input would be greatly appreciated!!!
