Lackluster Hair & Demon Chicken

Just another Manic Monday. I hope everybody's weekend was a bit more exciting then mine, which consisted mainly of sleeping off the flu, watching Scream 4 at the theatre and me and Sinead trying to save a few dollars by cutting out a trip to the hairdresser's and preening our own locks at home- the latter of which had mixed results.

I could probably count the amount of times I have coloured my hair at home on one hand over the last few years and it is not because I don't think people can successfully dye their own locks, but because I find going to a salon just takes the guess work out of achieving your desired colour and tones- assuming you have a good hairdresser of course.

But as it goes I decided to try it anyway, so I headed over to the Beauty Supply Outlet, which is a store that carries professional salon products available to the public, and went with a dye from Wella called Colour Charm. On the advice of the stylist, I decided to mix two different colours- one called Apricot and the other called Red Titan Blonde.

The results are somewhat subtle, but it has still evened out my fading colour which is what I was hoping for. The real tragedy of this story though is my failed attempt at trimming my own bangs- I got a little scissor happy and it is now dreadfully short. Lets hope it grows back asap.
