Just a lil color

Monday, August 17, 2009



Okay, so I got this bright idea yesterday that I would try and color my hair myself and save about $50 bucks. I never attempted to color my hair before....I ahve always left that up to the professionals...but how hard could it really be????

After church I head off to pick out the "right shade". That was the hardest part. I wanted to pick a color that would cover my really blonde streaks and my ever increasing little gray friends. Did I just say gray...Oh Lord I did...I am way too young and cool to sport any gray hair!!!!

Anywho, after much consideration of all the brands and colors there are too choose from I settled on Loreal Feria Expresso Medium Brown. Sounds pretty huh??? So I head home and straight to the bathroom to begin. It was actually a pretty easy task...you mix bottle #1 with bottle #2 and then add tube thingy #3 and shake well. Being oh so careful not to leave the flat cap on too long due to the hint on the directions that it could explode!!!!! Thanks for that hint in the fine print....and I am getting ready to put this exploding chemical on my head.....yep! I was pretty good in Chemistry back in High School so off I go like a mad scientist.

I get all applied and gooped up good and proceed to waith the 25 minutes to rinse.
After the 25 minutes and head to the tub to rinse all the color out and add the shine conditioner provided in the kit....I would hate to have to sport the dull mousey brown!!!!!

And here are the results....before and after pics below. Let me know what you think. I am pretty pleased with the out come. It's a little darker than I thought it would be and did cause Kyle to run screaming down the hall when he first saw me but I am sure it will fade in few weeks.

I think it looks great! I used to dye my hair all the time. I liked to go darker in the winter and lighter in the spring, but lately I have been sporting my natural hair color.

Looks great!!! I have taken that road many times and if it is a little dark now...just give it a couple of washes and it will lighten up. Hope you have a great weekend! = )
