As some of you might have noticed (meaning, my mother), I took an unexpected break from blogging this week.
I kind of snapped and haven’t been in the frame of mind to blog.
Which means I should’ve known I also wasn’t in the frame of mind to do a DIY dye job on my hair.
So instead of cleaning, blogging, resting, etc etc etc in the mornings while the girls were at school as I normally do, I was busy dying my hair like a mad woman.
Let us start from the beginning.
I have been dying my own hair red to touch it up for 6+ months. It has gone wonderfully and there have been no mess ups.
The last time I got my hair done by a pro I HATED the color red she did and wore a hat until I could tone it down.
The worst part- IT COST SO MUCH MONEY I HAD TO TAKE A SECOND MORTGAGE OUT ON THE CHILDREN.
Oh, I kid, I kid. But it was a whopping $150 for a trim and bad dye job. OH AND SHE DIDN’T EVEN DRY MY HAIR AT THE END. Let’s just say it wasn’t the best experience.
Andy almost died from a heart attack when I told him how much it was. And it was uber shameful to have to tell him I hated the color. (He hated it too.)
That is when I started doing my own hair.
Well Andy was “over” the red and it was so hard to maintain the roots. So I decided to DIY a new color.
So I chose a brown color and dyed it and EW it was mousy and dull and terrible.
So I headed back to the drug store and saw an ombre kit and thought, “YES! This is what I need! I will just lighten the bottom of my hair and it’ll give it dimension and be cute!”
Bless my heart.
(This is where I warn you that there are a lot of horrifying pictures coming of my hair and my no makeup face. You have been warned.)
So I did the ombre and came up with this which actually wasn’t so bad.
Except Andy saw me and had “Chloe face” and was clearly not thrilled with it. So I decided to just lighten the very bottom a little more and it would all work out.
I WENT INTO PANIC MODE AS ONE MIGHT SUSPECT.
I immediately started texting Telena to get her to help a sister out seeing as she’s a professional hair person. She calmed me down a bit.
Then I also texted Tasha because WHAT ARE SISTERS FOR THAN TO TEXT THESE THINGS TO?
(WARNING: SOME LANGUAGE USED. NOT PROUD. WAS IN CRISIS MODE. FORGIVE ME MOTHER.)
I replied with this pic:
(I don’t believe Telena ever told me to lighten it more- I think I was on the crazy drugs and made this up.)
So. As you can see, I was having THE ISSUES.
I hung my head in shame with a baseball cap on and entered Walmart to buy some color with the help of Telena on the phone.
You know you’ve hit a hair dye low when you are shopping hair dye with this one:
Bet you $100 her husband put her on a budget too.
Well. I WOULD bet $100 except its not in the budget to do so.
I consulted Telena when purchasing the new color. Here goes nothing…..
IT WILL JUST HAVE TO WORK.
So here is my Personal Service Announcement:
DON’T DYE YOUR OWN HAIR.
At least my momma loves me no matter what I look like…. RIGHT MOM?!
