Hair dye - what not to do

Hair dye - what not to do
Originally uploaded by Allan & Cheryl.

I have fallen victim to a dye disaster! It's my own fault. I should know better. It all comes of buying hair dye from the clearance rack rather than sticking with one color.

First I went almost black a few months ago bought on clearance. Allan hated it. So this time I picked up a medium golden brown. This is the result.

Should I cut it?

It's hysterical! I have reverse roots! I guess they are roots, but it's the opposite of the usual "bad roots" problem of light with dark roots!

Look at my two-tone hair!

I actually said to Allan, "I'm going to have to do something. I can't just go around like this. Can you take pictures because I want to post online about it." Right.

So my options seem to be:

A. Stripping the color of all of it and re-dying. This would probably completely fry my hair. I have fine, thin hair that falls out easily.

B. Getting another dark color and dyeing over it. Would fry hair some but not as badly. Downside - Allan REALLY didn't like me with dark hair.

C. Leave it. It's just hair. Maybe decide to develop a sudden interest in hats.

D. Cut it in a super short cut.

So what should I do??

Hey, I like that new color!

So, I vote for "C" though I did chuckle at your "sudden interest in hats" comment. :D

Here I was just thinking maybe I should dye mine instead of "graying gracefully" and now your experience has me rethinking that idea, LOL.

You could go for a super layered cut where there is no actual change in length. That wouldn't get rid of ALL the black but it would perhaps blend it in a bit and make it a quicker grow out.

Leave it alone!

It is, after all, just hair in the not so distant future will "fix" itself!
