Just after we got married I decided it was about time to do something different with my hair. I’d been a blonde for nigh on two years and I wanted to have a more winter colour.
My hairdresser talked me out of using a dye and opted for a rinse. It was a chestnutty brown, but not too dark. Well at least not in the tube. On my blonde hair it came across as quite dark.
Strangely enough there was an immediate division amongst people. People that liked it a lot and people that told me that they preferred me blonde. Personally I was torn. I could see the colour looked good on me, but it just did not make me want to smile at myself in the mirror. The latter realisation was the one that I wanted to be blonde again.
I was very grateful for having had a rinse and not a dye. It would rinse out over a few washes.
The colour rinse had different ideas, the rinse was not letting go. So 6 weeks after my rinse I was still quite dark. Not as dark as initially but still very dark blonde to brownish.
My hairdresser and I opted for a half head colouring with my preferred blond dye again. Will need another session before I am back where I want to be, but at least I am smiling at myself again n the mirror.
