A Hair Raising Experience



Since being here in Grenada I thought I could experiment with a different hair color/hair-do. I was going to go to the Salon right next to our apartment thinking "it's Grenada, how expensive could it be." But it was pretty pricey (surprise, surprise). So I decided to do my own dying, so Nick and I went to the store and got a box that was suppose to make my hair dark brown with a bit of a purple hint, I though it would look good. I also wanted to cut my hair a bit. I had nick cut about 4" and he did a great job. We waited a little bit and then I told him that I wanted him to dye my hair. So we started to dye it and all the while I was looking at it thinking this looks a little too purple, But we continued to color. Finally, Nick was done and I waited about 30 minutes then began to rinse and while I was rinsing Nick said "I think it's rad, but you might think it's a little to purple." I was thinking "O great! Just what I wanted a purple head of hair." I finished rinsing and I wouldn't look at it until I dried it with the hair dryer. I finally worked up enough strength to take a look and it was a shock! I thought it would grow on me, but as the night worn on I didn't like it at all. The next day Nick and I had to get my ID at the School,  and let me tell you in the sunlight I looked freaking RIDICULOUS! I was getting a lot of unwanted attention, nobody said anything but I was getting a lot of lookers. The second I got home I asked one of the other members (she is a professional hairdresser) if she could fix the problem I had created. She was very kind and she took me in immediately and fixed my hair and even cut it with layers! So needless to say I NOW absolutely LOVE my hair and I LOVE the little change! I figured the worse thing that could happen was me having to shave my head. haha jk I am grateful that little mistake happened here instead of America!

Thank you! I really like it, the only challenge I face is trying to style it. :D

Yeah, there was this time that I had Colleen do that at-home streaking kit to make my hair have blonde streaks. After I washed it and took off the towel she gasped and put her hand over her mouth. I had a 2 inch wide bright orange (think construction cones) streak right on the front of my hair. $50 later, I had a professional fix it. It was sad. I like your hair though. It's awesome.

Thanks, I definitely think I will be sticking to the professionals when it comes to coloring my hair! :)
