So off I went. I mixed it all up. I am not a novice hair colorist. I have had grey hair since I was 30 that I have been covering up. I put it on and the color was majorly bright red. But sometimes they are when you are working with them.
Left it on the time I was supposed to. Took a shower to rinse. When the water hit my hair, red went everywhere. It looked like a scene from Psycho. Red splatters on all 3 sides of the shower walls, on the shower curtain and the tub looked like the red sea.
I shampooed and got pink bubbles. I rinsed and towel dried. Had red dye go all on my towel. I blowed dry my hair and it was wild. The reddest red I have ever seen. Dark, bright, bold red.
Took another shower. Pink bubbles again. Shampooed again. Pink bubbles. Towel dried. Still red on the towel. Not quite so bright, but still...
Got up this morning. Shampooed my hair. Pink bubbles and red on the towel. My husband is sure I am killing something or someone with all the red on the towels.
Dried my hair and did it. Not too bad, but not good. Everyone just looked at me this morning like, there is something not right, but what is it?
Now after all that I found an inch section of hair behind my ear that didn't take the color at all. Thank goodness I have short hair and can blend it in.
Now here is my fear. I am going through early menopause and have those wonderful night sweats where you wake up and your hair is all wet.
Will this color bleed on my sheets? Will my husband think I killed someone in the night and got in bed with him?
