Warming up for winter

The problem with being a blonde, when your natural hair colour is so dark it's almost black, is that it requires a heck of a lot of maintainence to stay blonde.

You will remember that back in the middle of October, I bleach my hair out, then dyed it to a lovely, soft golden blonde.
Well, within two days, my roots were starting to show (no surprise, my hair grows really fast, and as I said, it's really dark). But I'm just not one of those girls who's into a lot of maintenance, and touching up those roots ever week or so certainly counts as maintenance. So I let it go for about a month, and then this weekend...
Hello, Red! A nice warm coppery shade for winter! Next month I'll darken it up a bit more to keep on top of those roots.

I was a blonde for a long time and you are so right about the maintenance. I love the red. It's prefect for peeking out under a fabulous hat!

pretty! I just went to my natural root color

Lynn said...

both colors look great on you!!! But I can see how you could probably get away with the darker red with the roots to maybe once a week maintenance vs every cpl of days!!! You look great!!
