I have been coloring my poor hair since 7th grade. Remember when highlights were in style? Or better yet, getting your hair "highlighted" so often it looks colored a yellowy blonde ALL OVER...ooh the good ole' days.
Anyway, in college I decided to color my hair all shades of brown, purple-brown, once it accidentally turned out black and cried, paid a ridiculous amount to get it "corrected" after having to cut it all off to make that process more affordable, and then wanted to hide in my apartment instead of leaving my house...basically all the typical rights of passage.
Now friends I'm over it. It costs way too much to go to the salon (not picking on stylists, please don't yell at me--I just have tiny humans that want to eat every single day), you get shamed to death for using box color, and it all adds up. Plus, I think I'd really like to know what my natural color is. I'm well aware that I'm making this decision just in time to start going gray...but we'll cross that bridge next. I made a goal in August that I was going to stop coloring my hair and I have stuck to it! Whoop whoop! However, around December my hair looked like a HOT MESS! More so than my day-to-day hot mess. Insert Keracolor--the product I used last summer to keep up my purple dye (oh, that happens in the summers, too...I will miss it this summer). I got the brown tone and my hair has a light filter of brown color I can transition out while my hair continues to grow out. My hope is to slowly use less and less Keracolor as my hair gets longer then cut off the rest of the older colored hair at the bottom this summer! I'll be sure to post updates!
