Fight the Frump, Hair coloring adventures!


So it is time once again to FIGHT THE FRUMP, WITH FUSSY!

This week, I am tackling my hair. Since I have been in Alpha mommy mode(i switch to it from 3/1- 3/10) I decided that I wanted to go back to my 'natural' hair color. Once upon a time, I was a blonde. I got tired of the blonde jokes and nobody taking me seriously so I started dying my hair, Brunette.

Well I have decided that it is HIGH time that I go back to my (blonde) Roots, so to speak. So in today's post we will have a photo journey through my hair coloring battle. (this may continue for a while).

As I am sure you all remember I have a 'dark' hair color now, its kind of auburnish red. (Please, please, please forget my scary eye!)



I am Dying it with this color:
It's about as far from my hair as you can get....

I colored it and left it for 30 minutes instead of the recomended 25 and washed it out, I think I should of left it longer.

Right now it is still wet but it looks like this:



Hmmm.....I have a feeling I won't be quite getting the look I want. Any tips I should have? I'll update more when its dry! I have a feeling that I may need to suck it up, call in the professional's on this one.

Oh, and don't forget to visit all the other Frump Fighter's over at Mrs. Fussypant's Blog!

I've run into this myself. You'll need to have the color removed from your hair (the dark color) in order for the blonde to work.

hair can be such a pain!

It'll probably look a little lighter as it dries, but this drastic of a change probably calls for a hair colorist. Good luck!

I loved this. I am a sucker for a self-portrait. We need dried hair pictures! You are so brave because I could never attempt this at home without professional intervention. I am hoping that it turned out well...

I got so tired of my hair color adventures never turning out they way that i wanted so I have given up and I go to the salon now.

Can't wait to see the rest!!

It looks good so far, you may have to color it a few times.

With Garnier, I always leave it 35 minutes. This last time, I still had some stubborn grey. I don't like to do it too oftern, but I usually wait a few weeks, and go after it again.

I will be re-doing mine in a week or too, to hopefully, get it lighter.
