I dyed my hair last night. No biggie. I do this routine about every 6-8 weeks. I have gray hair mostly by my sideburns. (Do women have sideburns?) Anyway, I'm not real particular about the color I choose....usually it's in the blondish/light brown/auburn field.
I put the color all over my hair. It was black. But that's okay; it usually rinses out to be a different color.
My hair was gray.
Well, "frosted" was more like it.
A dull, UGLY frosted color. I looked like I aged 10 years.
Oh, yes, this was EXACTLY the look I was going for.
Preference my ass.
I looked at the name of the color. "Ultra light ash brown."
Should be "Mouse brown with gray highlights."
Then I read further.
"FOR DARK HAIR ONLY"
"UL61 is a frosted brown shade with ash tones, which will minimize red/orange tones. For optimal color results, use on your natural medium brown to black hair."
"Not recommended for use on hair previously colored ..."
Lesson for today: When all else fails, read the freakin' directions!
I'm hiding in my trailer till Jim comes home with a new bottle of hair dye. I don't care what color he gets; anything is better than what I have now!
