"Your hair is red."
"I know, I dyed it."
"I know, I dyed it!"
Many of you have asked for a picture and update on my new dye job.
I tend to be the picture taker in my family, but I was able to find a few of myself among the vacation photos.
The red is most noticable when the light is hitting it just right. This often means that the top of my head is flaming red while the bottom looks almost regular brown.
As I've had it for longer it seems to be settling in; I think it looks more red than it did when I first dyed it.
I don't hate it, but I'll be going back to my regular color. I've noticed that it has changed what I look good in. For instance, red. I love wearing red, and am often told it's a great color on me, but with the new haircolor... not so much. Purple is weird now, too.
People did notice, and I got some compliments and some "um... I don't care for it" (mostly from family). Fortunately it wasn't horrendous.
But I have a new appreciation for brown.
