The fault, Jessie and I are assuming, was due to not bleaching it out. We figured since my hair is blonde, it shouldn't matter too much, but apparently it's not just the lightness of your hair but also the damage level. Unfortunately, dye sticks better to damaged hair. On the plus side, it means my hair is pretty healthy!
Jessie took a bleach kit to her reddish-brown hair, and dyed the bottom layer bright red, and it looks GREAT. Me? I look like I'm coming off three months of washing and growing what may have once been a bad-ass pink dye job. But it's only the first day.
I HATE EVERYTHING. *whines*
Granted, I've gotten nothing but compliments on it, but I didn't dye it for compliments, I dyed it for ME, and I don't like the way it turned out. Oh well, we're going to try again next week, with bleach and a different dye. SO STAY TUNED. TO THIS RIVETING TALE. OF...PINK HAIR.
