A Little Change

     Sometimes you just need to shake things up a little. It keeps things interesting! Keeps people guessing! And in my case, allows me to exert control over small factors in an otherwise chaotic and uncontrollable world! Whoa, sorry, that got dark fast. But so did my hair, is the point I'm trying to make. I've been bored with my hair for a while and wanted a change, but I also didn't want to do anything that would ruin all the hard work I've been doing trying to keep it healthy while I grow it out. So that means: no bleach, no harsh dyes, no cutting. The solution? A nice gentle semi-permanent dye!

Obviously if I were more committed to proper documentation I would have straightened my hair again for comparison after. But that's a lot of work, so here we are.

     I'm really enjoying the results. It's nothing too dramatic or crazy-different, just enough to make me appreciate my hair again. Before it was just "Oh, hey hair. You again. Still hanging in there?" Now it's "Hi, hair! You look shiny and mysterious this morning! What's on the agenda for today, a bun? Half-updo? Mohawk? No, you're right, no mohawk. Good call."

     It's amazing how a little change can perk you right up! And get you having conversations with your hair, apparently, but that may just be me. The best part of this little hair change-up is that it literally took 10 minutes, which is about as close to being a witch who can change her hair color instantly with a spell as I'll ever get (though one can dream).
