Right, while I'm working on the next blog post - which is one I've been promising for a little while - I just thought I'd keep you entertained with my latest hair colour.
I want to go pink. Really hot, fuschia in-your-face pink. All over, not just a few streaks here and there. Trouble is, to get it the colour I really want (which is this colour) I will either have to bleach it first or wait until I go completely grey. Bleaching is a pain in the hole (and if you've read my previous posts you'll see I'm no stranger to the lures of hydrogen peroxide). I'm quite grey on top but not so much round the back, but I'm quite keen to see how well the grey will take up the pink (which is semi-permanent, by the way - it washes out after a few weeks). So I let my current, more purple, hair colour grow out a bit, until there was an inch and a half or so of grey down my parting and, a couple of Saturdays ago, just decided to get on with it and slapped the dye (Special Effects 'Atomic Pink' - it glows under UV light!!) all over. Let it sit there for 15 mins then washed it off.
I'm quite pleased with the results so far although I do think it's a bit too much Eastern European hooker (i.e. a bit blackcurranty) and not quite enough Dear-God-look-at-her-you'd-think-at-her-age-she'd-know-better. So I may have to bleach it first, but that would involve having to have most of it cut off first and I quite like the length.
I dunno - decisions, decisions. I know it doesn't look much different in colour to my profile picture but it is pinker. I'm open to suggestions - what do you think?
