For a while now, I’ve been watching my hair turn darker and darker. I think it’s inevitable that I will have true brown hair within the next couple of years since both of my parents went from blondes to brunettes as they grew older. However, I’m a blonde at heart, so I thought it would be fun to have some summer highlights at least once more (reminiscent of a couple of times in college). I talked about going to the salon, but then Mom and I walked through the do-it-yourself hair dye section in Wal-Mart. I couldn’t very well pass up a chance to spend $6 instead of $60, so I bought a dye kit and made my mom promise to help me.
Today we spent about an hour pulling hair through a little cap…
…and coating the hair strands in (blue!–that made us a bit nervous) gel.
There were a few moments of apprehension when we thought we had left the dye in too long, but all turned out well in the end. Not bad for a home remedy!
