My new horrible hair story!

Horrible hair dye job!

Okay, I decided to go ahead and dye my hair black about two m onths ago...I do not suggest doing this unless you are going to keep it for awhile. I don't know what the heck I was thinking when I went ahead and did this. I was looking for change I guess, but I wished I never went ahead and did this. I wanted to go back to a brown and hoped that if I went to dye my hair the color it would come out without me having to bleach it. Boy was I wrong, my roots went to the perfect color, but the rest of my black hair stayed just that, black!

I refuse to put a picture on here of what it looked like because it is beyond horrible! So then, in an attempt to save myself some money went ahead to get some bleach to lighten my hair...that was the worst thing that I could have done! I ended up looking like a spotted leopard! I am so not kidding! My hair was streaked and spotted with white, blond, black, red. I think i cried for a couple hours trying to figure out what the hell I was going to do. I sure as hell was not going to leave the house looking like this.

I went ahead and bought the brown dye when I got the bleach and am doing that right now. I need to wait twenty more minute before I see the outcome. Hopefully it looks a little more presentable and less...I don't know crappy looking. My son looked at my hair and asked what was wrong and then presumed to tell me that it was ugly! LOL I pray that this dye job does me some kind of justice. If not, I don't what I am going to do! I guess just stay a prisoner in my own home until it grows out. And if that doesn't make it worse, right before Christmas when everyone is taking pictures! I highly doubt I will be in any of those this year.

I have only had two people work on my hair, that is my current hairdresser and my mom who is a hairdresser as well. I am so dumb for trying to save myself a little cash by doing it myself! Why didn't I just go get it done? Anyway, I am going to go look at my head and see if some kind of progress was made, hopefully!

I'm sorry you have to go through that experience. I know exactly how you feel. You're left with two options; spending more money to try and fix it or wear a hat:) I wore a hat for about a month when I got a really bad haircut. It was horrible but time heals all wounds:) It's one of the only times your greatful for those roots.

LOL Thanks so much for the advice! Trust me...I wouldn't be able to live with myself if I knew I was the one responsible for putting an embarrasing, and I mean embarrasing pic like that on. And I don't mean just anywhere...but the INTERNET?????? LOL

That is so funny, I did exactly the same thing yesterday.

I feel horrible about it. And tomorrow I'm presenting in front of a very large audience.

I sure as hell learned my lesson. What to do?
