my new hair

This is my new hair color. I have been a blond since I was about 14 years old (my natural hair color is about the same as the color on the box). Since I'm unemployed, one of the expenses I've cut out of my budget is getting my hair highlighted.

About a couple of weeks ago I bought one of those do it yourself highlighting kits, but I couldn't work up the nerve to use it, because I was really scared I would turn my hair orange. So this weekend I decided to just color my hair back to it's natural color. I figured if I hated it, then I'd wait a couple of weeks and then go ahead and try the highlighting kit.

I'm actually really liking the new color. I never really liked my natural color, because even though it's pretty close to the color I used, it's more of a dull brown, but now it's a nice shiny brown with just a hint of auburn. I'm thinking that I like it so much, I probably won't go back to getting my hair highlighted when I start working again. If I do, it will probably be just to add a few more auburn highlights to it. Too bad I didn't figure out a long time ago that this color suits me better than blond. I could have saved a lot of money.

I love this color. Did it turn out like the color on the box? It's a gorgeous rich chocolate and I'm certain it brings you a lovely warmth.
