Ba-da-dum! PURPLE

Ok ok ok, first of all I have to say that I’ve never dyed my hair at a real professional salon and Erin did such a freakin’ fantastic job!!!!!!

There has been no dye transfer to my pillow, hands are not stained purple, hair doesn’t feel crispy, my “virgin scalp” (harhar) isn’t super itchy or flaking or otherwise feeling mega damaged, and IT MATCHES MAH GLASSES!!!!

Yes, I’ve used store box stuff. Yes, I’ve gone to a mall salon…ick…(they didn’t destroy my hair but the color never lasted very long and I never went wild with a dramatic dye job.)

Ready to take down some Titans!

As most of you know, I have incredibly dark brown/black hair, my hair has natural dark dark dark brown highlights, and Tonie permed me back in October. With that all being said, I had to be bleached twice, as kind of expected, and only had the dye in for about 20 minutes….it may have been the full 30 minutes, but I wasn’t paying attention to the clock because it was burning so bad. But I wanted this color so bad!!

┬áTotally worth the 5 hours and the stinging. TOTALLY WORTH IT. Face keeps smiling at nothing in particular and that’s the way I like it. XD

For upkeep I also purchased some fancy smancy shampoo and conditioner. Did you know you can buy shampoo and conditioner with colored toner in it? I totally didn’t know! And now you know.

Since I am a daily washer it is going to be interesting resisting going full blown shampoo the next few days. I’m going to try to wait as long as possible before the first wash of my newly dyed hair. And when I do wash, it will be with my new special shampoo and conditioner. Man, that word is awkward. Sh-aam-pooooooo…..
