my adventures in hair dye

I've had my hair dyed black for 3+ years now, and was happy with it for about two of those years. Lately, though, I've been frustrated with it, and wish in my angsty goth years I would have given it more thought before diving in.

Anyways, I dared to try hair stripper. It took a lot of love, care, and protein treatments, but my hair didn't fall out and was left a lovely orange/brown color for me to dye on top of. So far only 14 of my 35 dreads are stripped and dyed, eventually I'll probably do the rest.

I would discourage anyone wanting to use black to use permanent dye. It is NOT easy to get out!

Here are the results of my adventures this week....
