....Hair disaster ahead...plus FOTD

I decided to dye my hair last night out of pure boredom. I decided to dye it a light caramel color welcoming the warmer months. I went to Sally's and bought L'oreal Mega Brown in Caramel and decided to have fun with it.

HOWEVER, since when did caramel mean Carrot Top? I washed my hair and was so excited to see the result, but my heart skipped a beat when I saw the mirror. My hair looked so....ORANGE. The worse thing is that my roots were A LOT lighter than my ends. I saw that and I knew exactly what went wrong.

Since I was going lighter, I should've started at the ends and work my way to the roots. The heat from the scalp process the virgin hair faster and deposit the color more efficiently. I forgot about that. Yeah, it was my own fault.

Before: Dark burgundy with dark brown roots

After: Auburn hair with light orange-y roots.

Fuck this shit. I can't go to school like this!! I debated on whether I should re-dye my hair today since it might be too soon and too damaging for my hair, but I really don't feel comfortable walking out like this. So I decided to go to Sally's again and dye my hair a darker color. I will take pics later since my hair is still really wet.

Today's FOTD: please excuse the skin. I swear BCP is making it breakout like crazy.



What I used:

Face:
--Coverblend concealer under the eyes
--Revlon Photoready powder in Light to Medium

Cheeks:
--MAC emote blush to contour
--Mehron blush in Tropicoral
--Stila Kitten e/s to highlight

Eyes:
--UDPP
--Stila Chinois as browbone highlight
--MAC Emote in the crease
--Stila smudgepot in black
--Ben Nye e/s in Royal purple as bottom liner
--Stila Kajal e/l in Topaz on waterline
--Stila Lash Visor mascara

Lips:
--Nothing in the pics, later threw on some Beauty Rush minty balm.

I'm crossing my fingers right now that the new color is turning out more successfully than last night.

I'm out people. Night!

I just did the same thing recently. I'm hiding under a wig for a few weeks until its not so bright.

Christina said...

I agree...no worries about the color! It's a neat color on you and you can always re-color it. I just colored my virgin hair too...didn't come out exactly how I wanted but the new change has brightened my complexion. Own it girl ;)

GiGi said...

i've had tons of hair regrets! The plus is that you can fix it more easily because your hair is dark. I think you still look greatthough!

Dark hair has orange undertones. You need something with an ash/green/cool base to counter react it. In any case, it's just hair. Your hair looks healthy, you can get it fixed.

There is something you can buy to take out the color . I think its called color oops. The review on make up alley say it works.

Olive said...

Omg I did the SAME thing too. I just dyed my hair a light brown color and it turned orange! But it wasn't the first time this has happened, I should've learned my lesson the first time around. I think yor hair actually looks really good though, it's no where near as orange as mine ;). I'm waiting to fix my hair because I already dyed twice this week trying to fix it :(

Haha I dyed my hair too last night because I was bored! XP And my ends are darker too...But who cares! I don't really mind haha. I don't think the orange colour looks that bad X)
