When hair coloring goes horribly wrong...

I WISH I could say that this post is about somebody ELSE'S hair coloring disaster...Unfortunately, it's about me. So, in order to spare anyone reading this from the same horrible accident that befell me approximately 20 minutes ago, I'd like to share this tip:

When coloring your hair, don't assume that every clock in the house is displaying the same time. When you glance at the clock to see what time you started the coloring process, use the same clock for ending the coloring process. Otherwise, you may find yourself, like me, with hair that was supposed to be a nice shade of light auburn, but is now about the same shade as Little Orphan Annie's hair, all because you changed rooms and used a different clock to monitor the timing, which resulted in the hair color staying on a full 10 minutes longer than it's supposed to.


Ten minutes really makes a difference.

Wait 'til my hubby gets home from soccer practice...

At least it's 3 more weeks until I go back to work. I can just wear hats and shampoo my hair 3 times a day in hopes that my current, dazzling shade of BRIGHT orange will fade to something resembling "light auburn."
