Bad Dye Job

I really needed to get my hair done. I kept putting it off because I was trying to decide what I wanted to do with it. As you can see the roots were really growing out. A reverse skunk is what I call it.

 I decided that I would go back to my natural color. A light to medium brown seemed like a good choice. Low maintenance and no more roots showing. This is the picture I  showed my hairdresser.

I had Bob take before photos so I could see the difference.
I know, the roots.
Little did I know just what a difference it was going to be.

I never look at the back of my head, maybe I should.

I am smiling in this picture. Do not be fooled. I hate it. A lot.
When Bob was taking the picture he said I had to smile.

This is the color after 3 washings of Dawn detergent and Prell shampoo.

I asked for a light to medium brown, I would hate to find out what black looks like. And red. I was very clear....NO RED HUE!

Can you see the pained look from trying to keep from crying?

I am going to go wash my hair again.


  1. I LIKE it!!!

    I think it makes you look younger and has a much more natural look for your skin tone.

    It IS a bit darker than medium brown for sure, but I really do think it suits you nicely.

  2. I think it's pretty, makes your eyes stand out. I've been through these kinds of dye jobs and also discovered that the color turns out much darker than intended. I was jet black, by mistake, at one point. I think I've had hair every color imaginable, some by accident.

    You wear it well. Enjoy the dark brunette stage while it lasts.

    Your cut looks fantastic.


  3. Oh Krista I so DISAGREE with you!!!! I think the color is beautiful on you and it does make you look younger. Maybe you just need more time to get used to it, it is a big change after all.
    When I first saw it I thought "OH BEAUTIFUL!". Really it looks great, leave it!! Love Di ♥
