36 Hours in the Life of My Hair

Here's my hair Saturday morning. Ok, it wasn't totally styled - it should be almost stick straight, but a) it was raining, and b) I was due for a trim. But look at it! So shiny! So healthy! So . . . well, not long, but at the start of getting there!



And here's my hair Saturday afternoon. Side A:



And Side B:



I told my stylist to do whatever he wanted, just make sure it can be wash & go, since I don't have a lot of energy these days. It's all I can do to get out of bed, let alone style my hair. Makeup is right out. So this is what he came up with. I like it! And now for something I can't blame on anyone but myself. Ha ha! I kid. I think it turned out well, many thanks to my intrepid helpers Nichole, Molly, and Candy.

Step 1: Put on Vaseline, to prevent skin dying.



Step 2: Apply dye (colour name: Pomegranate).



No, my hair isn't already red here. I guess it's just Nikki's shirt reflecting on my head. But, hey, preview!

Step 3: Wait for 25 minutes.



Step 4: Style as usual. Bonus step: match hair to 'after' & see how close it was.



Step 5: Check out your rockin' self! Holy crap! I can't believe that worked!



Thanks once again to Candy, Molly, and Nikki! You guys are the best!
