Oh Lord!! I will try to make a long story short, but I managed to make a huge mess for myself tonight!!!
One bored mom + kids and husband gone for the night + a salon in my home = BAD NEWS !!!
Back up one week:
I went and really TREATED myself to a salon visit in Des Moines. I never EVER do this, but I have a friend that does a great job, and I figured I “deserved” it. Right? ohhhhh I love the color she did my hair. LOVE LOVE LOVED it !!!! she cut it too, but the color was 100% PERFECT!!!
Here I am shortly after….
But could I leave well enough alone????
I have a facination for violet based shampoo / conditioner. It is what I always used to cut through the “golden” in my hair, so I got a NEW kind this week, and tried it out tonight.
Honest to GOD, this picture is obviously NOT me, but it is the exact color my hair was when I got out of the shower!!!! (NO LIE!!!!)
I mean, I nearly had a HEART ATTACK !!!!!! what was I thinking???
I would have taken an actual picture of it, at it’s brightest, but in my panic state I was in……I just wanted to start scrubbing the crap out of it. No time for a photo op, I needed this stuff OUT !!!
I have washed my hair SIX times since, and I will be rewashing it til I fall asleep tonight!!! I have now toned it down to a beautiful “greyish blue”
Seriously, I would never experiment like this on a paying customer…..but leave it to ME to think I can improve upon something, even just a “little bit”
