I went back to dark hair again.
Remember the last time? (Hair Makeover post here)
The summer sun has effectively "oranged" my hair and I kept putting lowlights and highlights in it. See:
So, I decided to go ALL brown.
Trying to save a buck, I decided to do it myself. I went to Sally's Beauty Supply and had the worker pick me out the perfect color. I wanted to go to my natural color, which is pretty dark. And then the worker recommended that I go one shade darker. That might have been OK, but as my hairdresser later said, my hair is extremely pourous meaning it soaks up color like none other. And I left it in waaaay too long.
It wounded up being BLACK.
I did NOT want black. So, I washed my hair appx 15 times with baking soda and shampoo. Luckily, I had only bought a semi permanent kind so it is continuing to get lighter. This next picture was taken the following day and it had already lightened up some:
I know it's kind of hard to see it. But I like it now. It is continuing to lighten up and become the color I initially wanted. I'm sure I'll add highlights again soon, but this is a nice change. However, please don't anybody ever let me dye my hair myself again!
