I did an impulsive thing today. I dyed my hair chocolate brown at home.
Wanting to blow chunks every time I pulled my previously rooty, brassy, 2+ month old highlights back out of my face was the main indicator something had to be done. However, with my vows to watch my spending/restricted fun money, I was not trying to get this done professionally. I love Jill and she always does an awesome job, but funds are tight these days.. and in general, I think I am becoming a tighter person! Oh snap- personal revelation.
So I caved. While in CVS with my Grandma to get her a few things, I meandered down the hair color aisle and impulsively made a purchase.
I boxed it with a demi-perm color (28 washes) w/ L'oreal Healthy Look Creme Gloss Color in 4G Dark Golden Brown. It's always messy doing home color and isn't the best color I've had ever... but it beats the crap out of 2 inch brown roots. And it does have quite a bit of red tones in it, which I like. Being closer to my natural hair color is so much less maintenance. I wouldn't mind boxing it every few weeks... better than paying $50+ for pro color. Who I am and what did I do with me?
Don't worry...I won't be scissor-handing in my hair anytime soon. I plan to make an appt. for a haircut with Jill ASAP.
