New Hair!

SO I decided to dye my hair.
I always use L'Oreal Casting Creme Gloss in Terracotta.  I love this colour, it's the perfect colour for my hair.

This is my hair today before I dyed it:

You can see my roots growing through, even though before I used the same dye which is only meant to last about 6 weeks, and I think I dyed it back in November.  I think because my natural hair colour has some ginger/red bits in, the colour takes to it really quickly and just never seems to completely wash out.  Or maybe it just means I don't wash my hair very often.  (I joke!)

I find it quite awkward to dye my hair because I only have the one mirror so I can't really see the back of my head.  I have a method for doing the front of my hair.  But for the back I sort of just massage it in and hope that I've covered all the bits and it always seems to work out alright. 
So the dyeing process began:

I love making funny hairstyles.

Oh nooooo, it's turned PINK!

And now for the finished colour:

This one is without the flash on, because it does appear quite bright with the flash:

Overall I am quite pleased.  I really like it.
I would have preferred the colour to be slightly more red, so could have left the dye in for longer.  But as I'm on placement at the moment I was worried about it becoming too bright and being told off.

So there we go, that's my new hair.

Eurgh.  I really look like crap.  I have massive dark circles under my eyes due to my illness.  I don't think I'm going to go to work tomorrow, it is only a weekend job afterall.  Although last time I phoned in sick they were really moody about it, but I wasn't actually sick then, just hungover.  But now I am properly unwell I still feel guilty about not turning up.  Oh well.  I'm sure they will survive without me! I do need the money though.  That's £50 I'll be missing out on! I do feel soo ill though! What a dilemma!


  1. the colour turned out really nice, I feel guilty about phoning in sick too even when i am sick lol even tho every1 else does it! but if ur sick, ur sick so dont feel guilty :) xx
