Big Mistake...Huge!

I can't even begin to tell you how long it has been since I dyed my hair.  Maybe before my birthday (that's February!)?  Let's just say it's been a desperate situation...2-3 inch roots, massive greys showing...not pretty!  So about a month ago, I finally decide to get my butt in gear and fix the situation.  Guess what?  My particular color has been missing from every store I frequent since then.  So last week I grab the only red on the shelf and decide that will be fine.

Fast forward to this morning, I have one hour before gymnastics class (EJ's not mine) and crabby kids who I know will settle at the chance to watch some tv (as I've held it back all week).  Now is my chance!  As I look at the box again, I realize this red is really for darker hair and think maybe I shouldn't, but...yep, I do it anyway!

I now have a head of burgundy hair...bright burgundy!  You know the color that a lot of women rock in the winter months (and look great doing it)?  I do not rock this color...I look a little like a clown!  Our plan for this morning was gymnastics and Target.  So yeah, the addition of boring brown hair color has been added to my list.  And I have every finger I own crossed that we won't bump into anyone there.  I always seem to see people there and I would prefer it be someone from the neighborhood versus someone I haven't see in ages so at least this look won't be what sticks with them!  Yikes!

On the plus side...
-It's just semi-permanent dye
-My hair isn't green or anything (although it may be after dye job #2)
-My roots and grey are gone

I am so not good at being a girl!!!

You can't leave a blog like this with posting a picture! Good or bad, your audience needs to see!

Hmmmm. I'm wondering who posted comment #1. LOL. A photo would be nice, though. ;-) If you want to quickly tone down the color, a few washes with Dawn dishsoap will do the trick. Not that I know from experience or anything . . .

Oh No! I hope you are able to resolve it quickly. I hope your hair will survive it all.
Yeah, I don't do the girl thing well either..which is probably why I don't bother with the color, etc.

and I was the lucky one you bumped into at Target :) I really didn't think it was that bad. sure, it was really dark red but it wasn't clown red....I think a couple washes and you could tone it down enough to be fine and maybe even similar to what you usually get.

This was a well needed laugh for my afternoon! And I'm SURE it's not as bad as you think it is...it'll be a different in a few washing and you can try again.

You could hit up a beauty supply store. They dies are not too much more and they have people to ask about which color to get.
