O Vulnerable Me.



People. My hair is a mess. It has been for over a week. I've worn a hat every single day to cover my roots. It's out of control. I am so blonde that I look like I am balding down the center of my head. But I haven't had the time or money to get it taken care of professionally. So what is a girl to do?

Have my friend put together some colors for me to use on my head.
And attempt it - ON MY OWN.

The last time I died my hair on my own was in Norway 1995. I had bright RED hair. I was hoping tonight might be a little more successful.

So I'd like to share my journey with you. I am being ultra vulnerable. Feel free to cozy up with a bag of popcorn and your favorite drink, and enjoy a good laugh at my expense.

STEP 1.
Apply color and pray.
(I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT I AM DOING.)


STEP 2.
Damage is done.
Apply Vaseline around face.
Clean up the goop that I dropped on the sink.
Sit on couch in awkward position (so that hair color doesn't bleed) and wait...

I think I look a bit like a Tim Burton character in this picture.
And I think my forehead needs BOTOX.

STEP 3.
Shower it off.
I will not show you this pic.

STEP 4.
Dry hair.
Slight whoops of joy. No horrible stains or streaks. Looks relatively normal. (All things considering)


Best news of all - I don't have to wear a hat tomorrow. I am liberated!!!!

Congrats on a great result. Thanks for taking us on that entertaining trip through your hair journey...it was, um, entertaining? :) Just don't make the mistake of dying your hair green. That's always a fun one--I should know!

Looks good!

Nicely done! And think of all the money you saved.

Okay, inquiring minds need to know. Since you are a blondie underneath, how are you getting your eyebrows to match your hair?

Kristi said...
