Fight the Frump: Adventures in Hair Coloring Part Deuce

So as I wrote in the previous Frump Fighter's Post (here) I decided that I wanted to go blonde.

Let's just say that going from dark to blonde in one step, didn't go so well:

Hmmmm..... I don't see much difference, though the lower layers WERE lighter:

And a bit of the top too:

So, since I was at Walm@rt I decided to peruse their hair color aisle. I found this:

I like how all the women look right out of 1980!

So I picked up a box, and also another box of blonde.

I used the remover:

I'm not sure if I will use the blonde as right now I look like this:

Maybe I should of read the directions more carefully?

In case you can't read that it says for medium tinted hair to leave it on for 20-50 minutes, I left it on for 40....but apparently my hair only needed the 'light tinted hair' which is 10-20 minutes.


What's you're vote?

A) Go all the way blonde
B) Leave it the way it is
C) Why the heck are you asking ME?!

Next week in the Frump Fighters, we'll be getting to the Sole of the Issue!

Ok my vote is non of the above. I think you should go for a blond, but not so drastic blond I think you would look good with some caramel colored highlights in your hair. Which might actually happen if the blond you pick has more of a golden brown look to it. But whatever you do stay away from colors that have an ash color in them. They will make the color more dull.

Acctually I like the colour it is now lol I just did mine a few weeks ago. IT'S RED AGAIN! I hadn't done it in so long I was half ashy-brown and half almost red lol

Personally I'd go white blonde. But then again, this from a woman who like her hair to be blue or purple... so maybe you shouldn't pay attention to my preference. ;)

blog hop hop hoppin...

The thing is, with blonde, is that many times you have really leave it on a long time, make sure you use ALOT of it, so your hair is essentially soaked (your hair looks thickish). I would use whatever color you want now, it should come out much better since you already "lifted" most of the color from your hair. People thing you can just dye your hair blonde, but you have to remove the color from your hair in order, almost a light bleaching. I think you should look at a slightly lighter, WARM toned color. Good luck and you are brave ! I have colored my hair for years and years and have it done at the salon, its my one vice.
