A New Year, A New Color

"If you want trouble, find yourself a redhead." ~Author Unknown

I have always admired red hair from Lucille Ball to Malcolm X. So, Naturally Sophia decided to become one herself.

Color Update! See above pic.

Yup I chose RED! ya know with brown not like fire engine red (well at least not yet).

How did I do it?

Well first I went with my staple: Naturtint. Except, it didn't color it red enough, it was more red but not quite red enough to be obvious. Now, to be fair, I only let it stay on my hair for 20 minutes. I colored it before work. It made a subtle difference, but not the punch I was looking for.

The next day, I came back and mixed some colors. I mixed Clairol 40 developer, Clairol Permanent Dye Reddest Sunset Red, Beautiful Collection Light Reddest Brown, and Adore Fire Red. Here is my disclaimer: don't do what I did because your hair can fall out or turn green. If you do it anyway, don't blame me.

I just did the part that was already blondish anyway because I did not want to bleach my hair again. I am thrilled with the result. It looks more red in person that in these pictures.

Now dear readers, let me confess something I am curious about but probably would never do in a million years. It's this:

Yuh Know? Fun Betty makes dye so the drapes can match the rug if you know what I mean. I mean aside from my fears of something burning or itching after using this product, I think it could be a cool thing to do at least once.
