{30x30 pt19&20} Hair Disaster

You know the saying "if it ain't broke don't fix it"? Well, this is one quote I should adhere to.  My hair had faded a lot since I dyed it so I decided to add some more red dye.  And since I am low on funds, I bought a L'Oreal box and had my sister colour my hair.  Let's just say the red turned to purple and she missed patches of my hair.  I tried calling the L'Oreal help line but they are incoveniently closed over the weekends! I called the hair salon but they told me hair correction is expensive and can take a while.  So I'm now considering keeping this colour but just fixing the patches.  *Sigh*

Have you ever had any hair disasters?


  1. I love the first outfit, the skirt is super cute!

  2. both outfits are gorgeous! i love the golden watch! :) And your blog is great!
    By the way We're hosting a Giveaway on our blog!:)Come and take a look!


  3. Great outfits. You always look smashing.

    Sorry 'bout the hair. It doesn't look bad to me, but I have very little understanding about hair. Good luck with whatever you decide to do about it.

  4. I like the color on you, and I would just fix the patches. I am a natural redheaded but my friend who is a stylist says if you want your red dye to stay more vibrant next time use shampoo for dyed red hair. Pantene has a line for it, and John Frieda. If you don't want to keep the color still fix the patches, and then use a stripping shampoo like Prell. Or you can try L'Oreal's Color Zap to strip out the color. I hope this helped if you have any questions twitter me.

    Test your luck and enter the giveaway for next Wednesday, too.

    I will give you my personal e-mail so you can give me the info. I need to get your giveaway sent to you, but also let me know about the hair situation so I can help. I am a hairstylist in my free time, I cut and dye etc., so I can offer you some advice. Though your hair looks nice in the photos. =]

    Here is my e-mail:

  13. I don't see anything at all wrong with your hair! If it's messed up, it's very, very subtle.

    I love both of these outfits, so much! The ruffled skirt in the first and those boots in the second. You look lovely!

    Come take a look inside A Working Mom's Closet

  14. Awe babe, that sucks but I can't see anything wrong with your hair. The patches must be subtle. You should still call the help line to see if they will fund the "fixing". I do like the colour though. It's nice!

    I had a few bad hair experiences most recently was a box dye to make my hair blond. My girlfriends did it but I was running late for a date with Chris somI washed it out with 5 minutes left. With wet hair I went to the movies. But the time the movie was over, My hair was orange!

  15. I think you hair looks great. I cant see any patches or purple color. But I say just buy another box.

    Write it in Lipstick

  16. I rely on the box...and it works now. I do remember a disaster when I was 17 and as a dark brunette wanted some lighter highlights. Did it stripes were the result. People used to growl when they saw tiger girl arriving....sigh.


One of my daily joys is reading the lovely comments you leave. It may take a day or two (or three, depending on how hectic life gets!) but I will stop by your slice of the blogosphere soon! xo Emily
