Well my friends, my mom was right. (As moms usually are!)
Once you’re a redhead, and you then stop being a redhead, you’ll probably never stop actually thinking about being a redhead again someday.
And so someday is today!
Ahhhhhh. That feels SO good!!!
I had my hair dyed red by my stylist a little over a year ago. And I absolutely adored it, for 4 or 5 months. But for a variety of reasons I went back to black hair very early on this year. I’m totally not even going to re-read that post to see what those reasons were, as they’ve of course all melted away now, as it happens when you have your heart set on something!
Although I do recall remarking about how black hair did make my eyes look more blue, but oh hey guess what? They’re still blue with red hair, too. 😉
So I crawled back to my stylist to have her make me a redhead again, hoping she wouldn’t want to poke my eyes out, but she did not. I’m not sure what drew me back to it, but I’ve been thinking about it for a couple of months. I’m sure it’s one of the reasons I’ve been really obsessed with the color orange this year… it must have been subliminally telling me to get red hair again!
And my stylist did a fantastic job on my hair! I was worried my hair would run away screaming, but honestly it was way shorter of a process this time than the first, since she wasn’t having to fight through so many layers of darker dye. So all told I think this time it only took about 2 1/2 hours instead of the 4 or 5 it was the first time around. And my hair is every bit as healthy as it was going in. I didn’t even need a trim.
When she was done, she remarked about how she thought she liked this red on me even better than the last time around, and I think she’s right! I didn’t ask what she did different this time if anything (I do know she uses Schwarzkopf but not sure the shade(s) for anyone curious), but I’d have to say I agree. I feel even more in love with the color this time than I did the first time.
I got it done Sunday and I don’t wash my hair for at least 48 hours after getting it colored red, so this was just a dry roller set that I lightly spritzed with water after putting the rollers in, and brushed out very gingerly (no pun intended, heh).
I’m so excited I started being really goofy in the photos. No idea what the hell I was doing other than being happy redhead hair drunk! 😉
So there you have it. I’m a redhead again. I don’t regret going back even one little bit!!! 😀
