Back to the Dark Side

In case I had you fooled, I am not a real blonde. In fact, I’ve dyed my hair so many times I am not entirely sure what my natural hair color is. I’ve been dying my hair since I was in 7th grade and not to date myself, but that was a LONG time ago.


Well, I’ve been going back and forth on what I wanted to do. Unfortunately and fortunately, my hair grows extremely fast, and keeping up with blonde highlights can be pricey. So, I decided to do my research and look into dying my hair at home. With hair color in a box. Cue the shaking heads and gasps.

I know what you’re thinking, because I was thinking it too. I have heard horror stories about self-dyed hair and even though I used to do it all the time, I was nervous to start it up again after having it done professionally for so long.

As recommended by Good Housekeeping

I took my advice from a Good Housekeeping article and I have to say, I’m pretty pleased with the results! I’ve had a great time being blonde but right now, staying in the vicinity of my natural color is more economical for us. With a speeding ticket and a car accident this past week, we will be hibernating and watching our spending for a while!


Here’s to brunettes having more fun 🙂
