Adventures in Red Hair
I've been so terrible about posting lately.
The weather has been all over the place (warm, cool, warm, cool, warmwarmwarm) which discourages me from dressing up in lovely fall outfits and blogging about them, and I've learned from almost three years of outfit-posting that if I'm just not in the mood I shouldn't try to force it. But! I took these photos last week and even though I look kind of weird (apparently I've forgotten how to not look so awkward) I wanted to discuss my redhead situation!
I'm still looking for the perfect red color. This is the second time I've dyed it since the original-- it looks bright in the photos but it's faded quite a lot since then, and I think I like the way this one is fading so far. The first color went brownish pretty quickly and this one (by Ion) is going more auburn. My goal is to have a natural, orangey-auburn color, but right now it's still uneven which is driving me nuts. I think I'm going to do a color remover this weekend and see if I can remove the dye from the ends, which are darker, and then try the whole thing again.
