The first problem is, I need to get my roots retouched every 6-8 weeks since my hair is so dark... sooooo, if you do the math, it is about $100 every 8 weeks... coming out to be around $600 a year!!! I feel like that is just a lot of money with me being a SAHM. I mean, who do I need to look so good for?? My kids and hubby don't even notice what my hair looks like!! lol
The second problem is, TIME!!! Finding a time to get to the salon during the day is sometimes impossible. My mother-in-law has been nice enough to watch the boys for me to go a couple times, but I hate to ask so often. There is not enough time at night when Brady gets home, since he gets home around 6:30pm and most salons close about 7-8pm. I refuse to go on the weekend, everyone goes on the weekend and it is usually super busy. With the time factor, on most visits to the salon, I am there a good 3-4 hours from start to finish. Just way toooooo long.
So, after 10 years of getting it professionally done, I did it myself tonight!! The total cost $14 & 1 1/2 hours from start to finish (including shower).
I have been working gradually to get it less blonde
|This is what I used, Brand: Loreal|
I liked it because it came with two colors (Brown & Blonde)
**Sorry pic is backwards lol
|I used just regular foil, works pretty good ;-)|
|Got them all in!! I did two browns to one blonde|
|All done!!! I think it looks good :-)|
|What do you think??|
My hair is obviously not styled... don't judge me ;-)
I would say it is a SUCCESS!!! I am super crazy about my hair and how it looks... I didn't cry, therefore, success :-)
