This is why I don't like permanent hair color.
I know better. But once a year I get the bug to color my gray at home, since I've had so many haircolor disasters from professionals.
I chickened out of taking a photo; it's that bad. My hair used to be medium to dark brown; now most of the front is very gray. I can't even tell what color it's supposed to be.
I've been using semipermanent color, but I haven't done well with that, either. So a few weeks ago I bought some medium brown permanent and finally tonight got the courage to try it.
After 10 minutes it wasn't coloring the front white very well, so against my better instincts, I left it on the full 25 minutes. I should have listened to the voices in my head.
It's almost black! I love black hair, but not with my skin coloring. And age. It looks so obviously, badly fake.
Guess I'll get my hair cut really short tomorrow.
Now I'll go to the contest post and see what I have to deal with! This may take a while......
