You spoke dear readers and I listened. You said dark and curly. So I went dark. Well...darker. I wasn't going for the Elvira look so I bought a box of Medium Ash Brown.
Here I am during the application process. This was also before the, duh you need to turn off your flash moment. I'd like to pretend that I was just being smart and using the flash to cover up the fact that I was standing there in my bra. You know, not wanting to show my goods to the Internet and all but I still had to crop out my cups that runneth over. Really, I just didn't think about it and now you have me with a big sparkly on my face. Look! I'm a Twilight vampire.
And here is the result. I gave it a good blow out and used the trusty old Chi on it just so I could see the color. The next day I did the tousled look and it looked just fine to me. No more 6 inch roots and surprisingly enough, it still has some highlights in it. Not sure how that happened. Either I'm an at home hair coloring genius or I didn't apply it very thoroughly.
