Some of you may be surprised to hear this, but I use chemical products to change the color of my hair. Here is it's natural color:
|See how ugly it makes me look?|
And so, I dye my hair. The problem is maintenance. I can get away with about 8-10 weeks between dye jobs, but at the 10 week mark, it's kind of urgent.
The next problem is, in Central America, it's tricky to find a stylist that understands how the blonde-haired Norwegian woman's hair works. Or more correctly, I told myself it would be difficult to find a stylist that understands how the blonde-haired Norwegian woman's hair works. Based on my experience in Malaysia.
And so, I decided to do it myself. I did the first inch of my hair, or the grown out roots. And I forgot how badly bleach burns when you apply it directly to your scalp. Your sunburned scalp. I was only able to leave it on for 40 minutes. Then I reapplied for another 40 minutes. But it only lifted to a nice orange shade.
So, I wasted $10 on the box. In Panama I went to the mall and bit the bullet for a dye/cut job.
|The result was super nice color. Love it. Dude did a great job with the color.|
BUT: Now, in the back, I am supporting a lovely 90's mushroom cut I would have killed for in 6th grade. It's OK. I will just have to face everyone for the next month.
