Don't Let Me Color My Hair at 9pm!

I've been busy and stressed lately.  I've had papers to write for English and Pschology classes.  I'm working full time and I've had to add on almost 2 hours of commuting per day 4 times a week that I didn't before.  Add on to that meetings, children, cooking, animals, etc, etc, I just haven't had a chance to get to the hairdresser to have my hair colored and my gray was REALLY showing!

I had to be at a function for my daughter's high school on Saturday and Friday night I decided there was no way I could step foot out of the house with my hair looking the way it did.  So at 8 o'clock on Friday after a loooooong stressful week I went to the drug store and picked up some color.  So in that frame of mind I decided that my standard medium warm brown was boring and that I needed something more exciting.  Soooo now I'm a red head!

I don't hate it but I also don't feel like it's *me*.  I think the actual color is more of a darker burgundy then it appears in the pictures.  I'll enjoy it for a bit and then go back to my normal color I guess.

I've re-realized that I shouldn't be allowed to make permanent changes to my appearance when tired and stressed though. : ) 


  1. 2 hours of commuting a day?! Holy mother mary! That's awful! But man, your thick, curly hair is gorgeous! I recently had highlight done and was WAY over-blonded by my stylist. I always said I wouldn't dye my hair till I had grays but I got tired of waiting for them :) Hope I didn't just jinx myself!

  2. I like the color..can agree with you on making personal changes in times of tiredness,,Once, before going to an IEP meeting..I decided to shape my eyebrows with my new "personal touch" razor..I went to the meeting missing one brow...sigh..:)

  3. Visiting from the Blogging for autism bloghop. I like the colour, it is lovely and rich:) Jen

  4. I love it!!! Reds fade like crazy, so give it a few washings and it'll settle into something quieter. And get some new lipstick!!! A new Palette is a new Palette, and the old stuff won't match for sure!!!

  5. I dig it. That's actually DW's NATURAL hair color, after all. LOL.
