Sometimes I get in the mood for a change and today was one of those days. I have had blond highlights on my brown hair for years. I decided I wanted to go back to all brown hair. I went to the store and shopped boxes. I bought a box that said "Medium Ash Brown." I read online that you should get Ash vs. Warm if you have fair skin. I came home and had it setting in my hair for about 20 min.
Meanwhile, Darrell had gone to get his hair cut and told his stylist what I was doing. He called me while the solution was setting in my hair and told me that his stylist told him that you SHOULD NOT put Ash colors in your hair if you have blond highlights because it will turn them GREEN! I immediately rinsed it out, but no green hair. It was VERY dark brown and not even all over my head. Darrell thought I should do another box of "Light Warm Brown" to lighten it up.
So after box #2 my hair is now a dark Reddish brown (more red). I had been thinking about going red for years, so I guess I got what I wanted. I'm not sold on it yet, but maybe it will grow on me. I definitely don't look like the girl on the box!!
