Anyone who’s been following me for long enough will know that I harbour a certain affection for red hair. My natural hair is on the border between chestnut brown and red, most people call me a redhead, but not all. For some time now (like…5yrs) I’ve been wanting to…amp it up a little. ;)
A month or so ago I bleached 3/4 of my hair to give a sort of ombre effect between my blonde tips and by red/brown roots. This was so I could dye my hair without having to worry about regrowth, as it’ll all just blend in. Then yesterday, I finally bought the red hair dye.
So now I’m sitting here, hair bleached and ready, hair dye within reach. and I’m being a bloody coward.
After all this time of waiting, I’m suddenly scared that it’s going to be too bright, than my clothes will clash, that the ombre will look weird and that in sort, I’ll be a total disaster.
I want to WANT to do it, but I’m too scared. Does that even make sense?? :P
I dyed my bleached hair a very pale aqua 2weeks ago with diluted manic panic enchanted forest, except it washed out very (VERY) quickly. So now I’m left wondering weather to-
a. dye my hair red and be done with it for the next few months
b. dye my hair green and reconsider in 2 weeks
c. dye my hair purple with the 1week stuff I have sitting a drawer from ages ago :P
CONGRATS to anyone who’s read this far, you are now qualified to tell me- what should I do?
I’ve just had a moment of realisation.
When I googling all these pics of green hair the ones I like best are the pale, pastel coloured ones where the clours half faded, particularly if a bit of the natural colour is showing through. To me it looks half fake-half natural, and almost like a mermaid or a fairy. But I’ve seen so many posts moaning about people’s disappointment at their ‘gross’ ‘faded’ colour that I’m starting to wonder- am I the only one who likes hair like this? :/
