So here is my dilemma, I had to color my hair last night. I realize that upon first reading this it isn't life shattering, but this really is an issue for me, so please, indulge me. See, a few years ago, I was out on a girl weekend away. I was so excited. On our way, we stopped in this tiny little itty bitty town to get some snacks, and I thought "what fun it would be to dye my hair red, but just one of those wash out colors". I used to dye my hair all the time, and it was alot of fun. I think there was about 10 colors to choose from. Off we go, and guess what, it turned out GREAT! I don't mean to be vain, but I loved it and got so many compliments on it. So for a few weeks, I happily tossed my red locks around. But then I started to notice that the 'wash out' part was not happening.
Here is the background. I started greying when I was young, really young, like 19 young. But I loved it. And actually I got alot of compliments on it as well. Thus the 'wash out'.
So, when I noticed my red wasn't washing out, I had fun and just kept coloring. Quickly though, that 4-6 wk redo period became VERY loathsome. Because I have so much grey, I don't just get 'color' roots, but grey roots.
I want to stop coloring my hair. Really, I don't care that much. The fun has long long worn off. In moments of frustration I tell my husband I am going to do a Sinead (you know, the singer, Sinead O'connor), which is only a threat, because I don't think I could ever do that.
