Journal of a would-be blonde with a limited income.

August:
Chose "caramel" colored highlighting kit. Got ORANGE CHUNKS.
Dyed blonde to off-set the orange. Got strawberry blonde hair.

September:
No activity.

October:
No activity. Starting to see roots.



November:
Bought blonde highlighting kit. Successful execution of instructions. Got blonde highlights.


December:
No activity.


January:
Starting to see roots. Chose to dye hair again, hoping for blonde hair. Chose dye color called "champagne fizz." Got strawberry blonde. Again.


February:
No activity. Cheap orange hair bringing out acne.


March 30:
Planned to highlight again. Bought different highlighting kit. Executed instructions. Got brown roots, orange hair, and hi-liter yellow highlights. Looked like cheap hooker.
Dyed hair brown; said "screw blondes."

I hear you. No, I *feel* you (isn't that what the kids say these days?) -- in my more lucid moments I recognize that only a professional can give me a cohesive color that doesn't look absolutely awful somehow. Highlights, though, basic highlights (cap not brush-on), that I'll do at home, that helps a lot. Helps enough that sometimes I forget not to attempt anything else ... (btw I will always believe you were born to be a blonde forever, but I recognize that this is only one person's point of view.)
