So, I struck a deal with the director of our Children's Show. I really didn't want to be in it, and she really really need a stage manager. And voila! I'm stage managing now, which makes me happy. I'm still not allowed to do the pink and blonde streaks, but I can do "any color that could appear naturally on someone's head." So I am sitting here as we speak with dye on my head that hopefully will end up a dark red.
So now we wait...there will be pics from this adventure. I took a before pic, a during pic, and there will be after pics.
God I hope this turns out okay. The dye came out of the bottle a really dark purple, and the only other time I've ever put purple dye on my hair was when I was dyeing it purple! :nervous:
I'm still supposed to look "normal." I'll be dealing with small children and we don't want to scare them or something like that. Or weird them out. Or something like that.
Streaks will come later. Maybe during the summer.
And dark auburny is what I'm going for. *fingers crossed*
And now, I am off to wash it out before I fry my hair.
Fruck fruck fruckity fruck. The color didn't depoist in certain (very noticeable, like my freaking forehead hairline) places. I called Clairol. They said try again. Thank god I had a little dye left. THis is not good.
I've never ever had a problem like this before. I've been coloring my own hair for the past 4 years with the same brand (Clairol Natural Instincts) and this is the first time it hasn't come out perfectly.
Thank you for the compliments everyone...mostly the patches where the color didn't deposit are incredibly visible when I wear my hair back, so I'll be wearing it down until I re-do it. I'm calling Clairol tomorrow, since I forgot the box and bottle for the lot number and such today.
Brown eyeliner is my best friend. If I weren't lazy I'd post close-ups of the problem areas. But basically it's in front of and over my right ear, the left side of the nape of my neck, and like the front of my hair where it parts.
The red makes me want to break out into "Part of Your World" from The Little Mermaid. I want to be Ariel!
