Hair No More

I finally did it. After months and months of waiting for a so-called "temporary" hair dye to wash out, and another few weeks with an additional color that was supposed to turn out close to my normal blond (but did absolutely nothing), I went to the salon and had a professional fix my hair. Rather than an all over bleach job and then fixing that mess, she added foil highlights throughout my massive head of hair in hopes of gradually growing out the brown and bringing back the blondie. This is going to be a process. It was also high time for a real change so she took a good chunk of length off the bottom and added some layers. My intention was to grow it long but it was just too damn boring and really needed a facelift. Now it is just below my shoulders and literally, a weight has been lifted. It looks and feels fabulously fresh and I am happy to say I will never again attempt to try any kind of do-it-yourself hair at home.

Insights
#1. There is no such thing as "temporary" hair dye.
#2. Brunette to blond without help is asking for a disaster.
#3. Highlights good. All over color bad.
#4. Having someone shampoo your hair is a mini vacation.
