Does the phrase "leave well enough alone" not mean anything? lol

January 24

Does the phrase "just leave well enough alone" not mean anything????LOL

I know, I know, I said I was going to leave my hair
Well that didn't last long now did it...
I noticed that the colour started to turn shades..I mean why not, its not like I have given it much of a break right? LOL
So me, being me,,, I went and bought some more bleach and a slightly lighter hair colour and went at the process again.
I knew this time that I wouldn't have the multi coloured phases (the light brown, orange and yellow) to go thur since it was already pretty light, so I thought it would be a breeze...

I applied the bleach, waited till I got the pale shade recommended, and then rinsed it off. But wait, as it dried it wasn't just pale, it was white. The good news is I know what I will look like with a head of white hair in another ten years... well if I still have any hair left that is....LOLPMP
So when poor N came home from work, he was shocked to death... I told him to look at it this way...with me changing hair colour all the time he could just pretend I was another woman...LOL I thought it was funny....

I had to wait till this morning to colour, since its so hard on your hair bleaching and colouring all in one day, so I went to bed with white hair and got up this morning, all optimistic that the hair colour would cover it fine...
Wrong!! LOL

Since they don't give you all the info on the hair dye box that one needs to make an intelligent and informed decision on colour choice....LOL I picked up the wrong shade... more on this to follow.

I applied the dye, waited the 30 minutes and rinsed... It was a cross between silver and white... can you picture it?? If I joined a Punk rock band I would look perfectly normal!!
All I could think was,,,I have to go to the Dr's office tomorrow and all the people that would be staring at me!! Oh Lord!!

Not to panic, I called the 1-800-idiot hot line and spoke to a Representative.. this is how the conversation went...
Hello, this is Marie, how can I help you?
Hi, Marie, I have a colour problem
Alright, can you tell me what colour you used?
Yes, it was colour LB03
And what colour was your hair before you started the bleaching processes?
It was a medium brown
And what colour was your hair after you bleached it?
Well sort of whitish
Oh, that is a problem.. can you describe the colour that it is after applying LB03?
Yes, its a combination of silver and white now.
Ok, the LB03 that you chose has a 30% peroxide solution in it which lightens hair as it colours, the bleach process is not necessary. (this info was NOT on the box) LOL That colour would of worked better on your natural brown hair colour.
I start laughing at this point.
Well at least you can laugh about this most women who call me are in tears.
Yes, well, its better to laugh at this point. Tell me, is there a solution to the colour problem?
Yes, you need to use hair colour "B" light blond
Light blond, I repeat? won't that still make it "too" light?
Well you can't use anything darker or your hair will turn green
Green?? I repeat, (again I start laughing)
Yes, green.. you can't go darker than light blond
Ok, I guess I better not put this light brown colour in it then....(laughing really hard by this point).
Oh goodness NO, don't put anything brown on top of that colour!
(I'm still laughing) well I will go buy some and see what happens I guess .
It will turn out fine if you stick with the colour "B" light blond. Would you like me to send you some coupons?
(My laughing has subsided at this point)That would be great, I'm sure I'll be using them...(laughing all over again)
All I need is your address.
I give her my address, thank her for her help and hang up, still unsure of what colour my hair will become in the end.
The worse part is I then had to get dressed and go out into public with this hair colour. I got to Shoppers and I was laughing the whole time, thinking, everyone here knows I heading for hair colour....LOL
The good news is that by the time I go to the Dr, it will be something other than what it is right now... hey it can't be worse?! LOL
I think it would be cheaper and easier to go to a hair dresser and get it done "professionally" from now on. I always wanted to be blond before I die, at this rate, I might die trying...LOLPMP
