...Are not the words I would use to describe the current color of my hair. More like, "Still as brown as ever, but with a weird, distinctly not neutral brassy undertone." Dang it!
I don't know what possessed me to do this. I haven't had my hair cut or highlighted in about six months, and it was in about as natural a state as it has been since age twelve. I was liking it. But pregnancy makes my already super-thick hair even thicker and poofier, so it's also been getting on my nerves. And then I strolled down the beauty product aisle of Meijer, and a box of ash blond coloring caught my eye. I started thinking, "Usually when I've colored my hair in the past, it kind of tames it down for awhile. Maybe I'll go blond again!"
Except that before, when I've been blond, it's been the result of months and months of repeated highlights at an actual salon, with actual hair stylists who know how to mix dye. It has not been the result of globbing on a box of Clairol Nice'n Easy.
So, that was a waste of time! And I probably inhaled all sorts of noxious chemicals which are terrible for the baby, and now I feel both guilty and foolish. And very annoyed that my hair is, if anything, red!
Maybe I can sue Clairol?
