I decided to have another Vanna rant on something that has been bothering me lately: my hair.
The past few months I had been obsessing over red hair. It started when I was watching Bring it On and saw “Big Red’s” hair and thought, “I really like that.. oh and with the curls… I have curls.”
The obsession grew when I watched Pitch Perfect and saw Chloe and her beautiful hair. I had seen the actress in another movie where her hair was blonde, so I convinced myself it was possible for a blonde to dye her hair to that exact shade.
For weeks I eyed-up women that passed me in stores who had red hair, trying to decide whether this was something that I really wanted. Would it look good on me? Could I pull it off?
The final straw was watching a Wendy’s commercial.
So with my obsession-crazed eyes, Sharissa and I searched for the perfect shade of dye at Walmart.
I decided to keep it light remembering the last experiment I had with dark shades.
We eagerly went home and dyed my hair.
… it turned out pink.
SO we went back to the store to try another box.
Came out pretty nice and I didn’t cry, so that was a plus.
Then everything changed when the Fire Nation attacked. Hah.
Just as I was confident with my new color, my shampoo decided to strip my hair of the dye and leave me a patchy pink/gray mess.
I decided to give up on my red hair fantasy and return to my natural hair color, so I dyed it back to blonde…
And it turned pink. Again…
And right now I am still walking around with a frizzy pink blotchy mess – saving up every penny so I can get my hair back to normal.
If you see me in the street, I’m sorry.
I would show you a picture, but it is too unbearable for me to photograph it and post on the internet. Yes, it’s that bad.
Which leads me to the rant portion.
Why can’t box dye be accurate? and why can’t salon prices be reasonable?
Box Dye: $10
Salon Dye: $100 +
It’s like us poor people are destined to look atrocious when we try to change our hair color.
You only see poor skanky women with hair like mine.
The whole thing is just disgusting.
Why, Hair Gods, why?
