Over the years I have coloured my hair naturally! Sometimes I was happy with the outcome, other times I did not know what to do with my hair! When it went well, it looked good. Other times it was a Hair Dye Disaster that was so bad that I had to re-dye my hair!
Hair Dye Disaster
One year (I think it was about 8 years ago!) I thought that I would go really blond…like a Blonde that was so light that it would not be a natural look but I wanted to see what it would like! I brought two boxes, and went to town. Within 30 minutes my hair was going through a different change. A different outlook, and a new colour. I waited the 45 minutes like it stated on the box. Then I jumped into the shower and washed my hair and then added the conditioner. I lathered up my hair and washed it all out. I still had not looked into the mirror at this stage!
Oh Was That The Biggest Hair Dye Disaster Ever!
So I jumped out of the shower and was drying off my hair. Within a few moments I was about to look into the mirror, and see what new colour I had put through my hair. I think that even my family was keen to see a “new Mum” but they were just as shocked as what I was!! I thought because my hair was wet that it was so bright orange so I decided to dry my hair with a dryer. After 15 minutes of drying my hair I was still stunned. I was standing in front of the bathroom mirror with a look of shock on my face at my new Hair Dye Disaster.
Bright Orange Instead Of Blonde
So I was Bright Orange instead of Blonde. Not that orange is a bad colour, but with my complexion and hair dye orange that looked so fake, I was so disappointed and so scarred. How was I going to drop of kids to school in the morning looking like that? How was I going to walk out the bathroom door and show my family. By that time they were knocking on the door, keen to see a Blonde Mum! Gee there were in for a huge surprise
Open The Door To Shocked Faces
So I opened the door and there were all of their excited faces, which within minutes turned to shock faces. Remember this was a few years ago so we only had four boys…and our fourth boy was to young to understand! But even he cried when he saw me! That was when I really knew that my Hair Dye Disaster was bad! I think that by that stage I burst into tears……there was no way that I could walk around with hair that looked like a hair dye gone wrong – so wrong that I was ready to cut it all off
The Local Chemist To The Rescue
Luckily for me the local chemist was open. I jumped into the car, with a hat over my head, and went straight to the local chemist. There I walked into the back of the shop and located their hair dye. I stood there for ages trying to work out which colour would over-ride my Hair Dye Disaster job! I think that I got the darkest colour possible, in the hope that it would at least make the bright orange a dull orange, or even turn a little bit of my hair back to a darker shade!
After another 45 minutes and washing of my very clean hair, I was lucky that I was no longer blonde gone wrong, nor a bright glow in the dark orange. I was back to a darker shade and looked almost normal. That was my Hair Dye Disaster story. Do you have your own Hair Dye Disaster Story?
