Hi. My name is Anita. I am 32 years old and I have never colored my hair. Until today!
Yes, this might be the most lame reason yet to do a blog post, but it's my news for today. My hair started to turn gray when I was about 25. It somehow doesn't show in photos (yet) but there is a GOOD amount of gray around my hairline. A LOT of gray in my bangs and going back from there.
Tonight when we were at Target waiting for prescriptions I happened to glance at the hair color aisle. Why not? What's the worst that can happen? It's only 6 weeks. So I spent 6 bucks on "reddish brown" hair color.
I called my sister (who is a PRO at dyeing her hair!) and asked her for tips. After I got the basics from her I went to work hoping for the best. The kids made me feel really good when they started freaking out as the dye turned my scalp orange. Inside I was thinking, "Oh crap! What have I done!"
Half an hour later I had one ruined shirt, a few reddish brown fingers, and no more gray in my hair. Eric can't tell the difference. Taevy says she doesn't like it and I don't look like me anymore. Samren had no comment. And I think probably me, my mom, and my sister are going to be the only ones that will be able to tell a difference! Yes, I think I dyed my hair almost my original hair color. Just a bit darker. Oh well. At least it wasn't orange! This was probably a good first place to start with this hair dying stuff.
I have very few photos of myself. These are the best I could find to show my "before" color:
And here is my "after" color:
See a difference?! ;-)
