For as long as I can remember, I wanted to be a red-head. But the shade I dream of is not red-red, it's more of a blondish kind of orange. I even have a pinterest board called I wish I was a ginger. I'm not gonna deny, I've colored my hair before. But with my dark-brown hair it is very difficult to get the shade I want, or to be precise, it is very easy to end up with a reddish-old-lady shade. But I am doing it (again). I just have to find the right off-the counter little box and hope for the best. I did get one of those yesterday, but I think I am going to have another look since on daylight it seems to promise a shade that's more red and less orange.
A hair cut is not something I am going to try though. My hair is very thin and somewhere between wavy and curly. I don't know why it is so hard for hairdressers but every time I've gone they've left me with very short hair, that instead of curling gets all spongey with humidity so I look like the boiler just exploded in my face. Or like Spongebob Squarepants. It took a while, but I've discovered long is better and whenever I ask them to trim my ends they always confuse 2 cm. with 20 cm. Lately my mom is the only one I'll let cut my hair, I know I should cut it sometime but I just can't trust anyone. Last time I cut it the ends kept pointing outwards, instead of ending nice and round and towards the inside. I ended up tying my hair in a knot , braid or ponytail, everyday, until it grew again. So, no scissors for me.
What about you? Do you have trouble finding a good hairdresser? Have you ever dared with drastic color changes?
