Hair color is very important to me. It's funny that I just realized this but when I went from blonde to a mousy brown I became depressed. I hated the brown, I mean I really, really hated it.
Then I sent to Sally's Beauty Shop and went down the hair dye aisle. I choose a black/plum color and a red violet color, got some 20% developer and came up and stirred up a batch of hair color.
Now normally I go to Sara to have my hair done, but this was late in the evening and I needed to do something to my hair NOW. And I did.
It's darker and in some lights it looks black and in other lights its more plum. All I know is that the murky brown is gone.... and I like this so much more.
Unfortunately I splashed some dye on my silver bath mat, so there's another expense as I have to replace the rug.... but sometime sacrifices have to be made in the heat of the moment.
