I've been contemplating my hair again. I am happy with the length but the color was dull to me. I had gotten highlights in November that had slowly faded to a blondish dull color. In the sun, it was pretty, but in the morning when I stare at myself in the mirror it just was blah. Will has told me that although he liked the color he really prefers my hair nearly black. I like golden colors and chose a box of Natural Instincts called "Golden Cappuccino." It is a new color, one I had never used before. Usually when I want to go back to dark I have used "Clove" or "Nutmeg" I've been using Nutmeg to darken my hair since high school in fact. What I like most about the Natural Instincts brand dye is that it is semi-permanent. Over the course of a few weeks it fades to close to my natural color, it gives a quick (taking only 10 minutes) boost of color.
On Friday, after drop off and my weekly cup of coffee with a friend, I decided it was time. Gwennie and I set up in the bathroom and she watched while I saturated my hair. She waited patiently while I rinsed it out. Then when I looked in the mirror, I was stunned. I had had the lighter color long enough that this new dark color was a bit of a shock. Plus, it was not at all the same color as the box. Its pretty, don't get me wrong, its just more red and darker.
