I did it

I applied the blonde hair dye!

Not entirely sure I like it, but I don't dislike it any more than I did before. The white is a bit more yellow and the dark is a bit more brown. I think if it was a bit longer I could probably get to like it. A shame I just had it all cut really short again really. 

Here's the result as best as I could capture it. As BB says, "it's not really blonde, it's a bit blonde and a bit black and a bit white"  so slightly 80's bad streaks in other words!


Hmmm! Maybe I should have tried a slightly darker colour. Don't want to get back to the situation where my white roots are standing out though. 

Let's see how I get used to it! 




It looks OK with a sepia effect - so if you could all just walk around in sepia lenses that would be fab!

4 hours later I found my self in the store looking at dye - I went for a shade darker with a different brand and tried again. Are you supposed to dye your hair twice in one day? Probably not. I promise it lots of conditioner and coconut oil.

For the record this second one was Garnier Nutrisse 8.13. Much better coverage than the other one, not sure if that's down to the brand or the shade, but anyway.

Here it is.


I still find it strange - but then again I was still finding my natural grey strange after 42 years of dark brown.

I think I could get used to this more than I could the first attempt. Its quite similar to BB's after the sun has been on it which is a good thing too - he says he likes it - but he may just be saying the right thing.

Ah well - it's as good as black and white at least
