I Looked Too Cute...If I do Say So Myself! LOL!

i knit a cocktail hat (actually it was a mistake that i made work!! check out my looming blog for more details and to see a slide show in color) and my sister actually claimed it as soon as she saw it, but i snatched it back to wear to a friends wedding today. i just loved the way my hair looked so much with the little cocktail hat that i just had to snap a few pics...okay, a lot of pic! to save you the hassle of scrolling down, i put it all in a little slide show. enjoy!

Going back to Red

i dyed my hair red again! i was so scared to do it for the longest time because of the warnings i had read about henna and how when you mix it with commercial dyes, it could turn your hair green or black! the sites recommended waiting at least 6 months to a year before you tried regular hair dyes on your hair again, and since i had used the henna last year August, i was gonna wait til then. but then one of my YouTube subscribers and friends made a video and asked me about how i got my hair the color it was, and i made a response vid all about how i originally got my hair colored and how i switched to henna and blah blah blah. ANYWAYS, the point is, another lady commented on how she dyed her hair with henna and the put a commercial dye right over it THE NEXT NIGHT!!!! it blew my mind! and then i got to thinking... the hennaforhair website was warning of your hair turning black or green if you mixed pure BODY GRADE henna with commercial hair dyes. body grade henna is the kind you use to make the temporary tattoo. i doubt the henna i bought from the health food store was body quality henna. so, after reading that, i pretty much decided that i would dye my hair back to red as soon as possible. i just needed my sister's help, cause she's the hair dying queen and my hair has gotten to a length where its a pain in the butt to do it all by myself. we were going to do a YouTube vid of it, but it was too hard to hold the camera and deal with all that red dye. so we just took pic throughout and i made a pic montage about it and posted that to YouTube.
