I'm red  
Ha! Finally after two days of annoyance I'm finally a red head again. No pics yet because it's still wet and it's night time. But we started the night before last and I bought that stuff that's supposed to make even black hair blonde in one shot. Well I knew it wouldn't work. My hair's too dark. They say the stages go from black, brown, red, orange yellow. Well the crown of my head turned kind of yellow and the rest stopped at the orange stage. D'OH! So Chris had to buy me another box of this stuff that really burns and stinks out the place. So the next night we do it again and the top of my head finally turned yellow but the ends stopped at strawberry blonde. ARG! I'm not doing it again. And I look terrible that way. Today was an anniversary and I did want to be with Chris so I put my hair in a French Twist and wore my cowboy hat out. We ate at Red Lobster afterwards. I got to see some beautiful contry side.

After going through the hole hat thing to hide my hair I can really understand Owen more now. He doesn't want anyone to see his fire and wearing his helmet still draws the wrong kind of attention but he'd rather be seen with a helmet than his fire. Also having yellow hair I kinda could imagine what it's like being him, though mine didn't go as light as his. I don't think it could anyway. I love blonde on guys but not on girls and especially not me. I didn't really look like him more like Heidi the beer maiden. Also I'm just too dark skined it looks so fake. But that wasn't the point. It's too bad it didn't last only an hour as planned but because we didn't have enough stuff it had to be two days while I waited. But tonight I just decided to go for the red because I didn't want to wait anymore graidents in my hair or not. I'm very pleased with the red and I think the graident is much less this year than it was last year. Now I match Henrietta.

Speaking of which. She's such a house hen now. She only eats seeds and turns her beak up at pellets. Sigh. I've put the seed and water in her nest so she doesn't have to go outside as much. That's finally been working out.

I've decided to set aside my dino art for now. I started coloring my nepenthes I was making for the thermus. I'll try to finish that then I need to get back to inking the Work Fight drawing for my story. Well that's been about it really.

I find dying my hair is a pain since it's darker. I love the natural colour of my hair so I only have highlights. But the lady who did it last fudged it up a bit. It was the right colour but she highlighted it all wrong. So aggravating.

Going darker to lighter is always very hard. But you're hair is nowhere neat as dark as mine. That sucks she messed it up. You go to these professionals because you expect them to get it right. I don't do this often. Last time I dyed my hair was 2009.

That would have been awesome to see you with strawberry blonde hair on the ends. I hope Chris liked going out with his 'cowboy', hehe. I think the strawberry bolnde would have contrasted nicely with your green eyes. I guess your now red hair does, too. I didn't know you dyed you hair red last year as well.

That's funny about Henrietta. Only the best food for her! I don't like mine eating inside because they flick grain everywhere.

No it looked terrible on me. I was so glad to get rid of those terrible colors. He had fun. I found out it wasn't last year but in 2009. Here's the post.

I don't know if I had met you yet back then.

She definitely makes a mess, but when she's on the nest she doesn't flick which is nice.

That must have been before I knew you. Wow, what a head of red hair!
Desthagirion on June 6th, 2012 12:14 pm (UTC)
Yeah must have. I wish I remembered when we met. I usually announce when I add someone new but I don't know why I didn't do that with you. Perhaps it was in 2010. It turned out better this time. I still need to get pics.

I had a nice time with you yesterday. I am glad to have taken you out.

This hair thing the last few days is a mixed bag. On one hand, the chemicals and application are annoying but on the other hand, 3 nights ago I went to bed with a brunette, two nights ago I went to bed with a blonde. Lastnight, I went to bed with a red head. ;) I've been quite the player lately. hehe
Des: Henriettathagirion on June 5th, 2012 12:42 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I'm glad we went out too. I got to see so many nice things.

It was finally worth the aggravation.

I'm glad you got your hair the color you want it finally. I don't think I could dye my hair a lighter color. My hair is very fine, so the chemicals would probably do a bad number on it. I'd rather just get the natural highlights from being outside, since the ones I get are red anyway.
Des: Henriettathagirion on June 5th, 2012 03:26 pm (UTC)
I don't like how my tips turn yellowish in the sun so I have these dark upper parts and lighter at the bottom. Thanks, right now it is almost even. It looks very nice.

Oh, boy. XD If the stuff smells anything like my mom's blonde-bleach (she doesn't like her natural brunette shade), that can't have been too pleasant. Glad you were able to enjoy the anniversary in spite of the hair, anyway, and that it's red like you wanted now. Red power! 8D

Lol, Heidi the beer maiden! I have a braided light blonde wig that I used a few years ago to be a beer maiden for Halloween. I actually look all right as a blonde even though I'm really pale & you might think it'd just wash me out too much. Honestly, I like myself in dark wigs, too, and I'd love to give myself an unnatural hair color (blue or green or purple or fuchsia or something)...but those squeeze-on or rub-in colors are barely noticeable at all, and I'm too afraid to put color-changing chemicals in my hair. >_<

I like blonde guys, too. Actually...I've been working lately with one of my former classmates on some of his independent horror movies (I got to be kidnapped, bound, gagged, and murdered in the last one--fun!) He's got great long, feathery blonde hair (and is still very much living in the 80s), and I admit I find him really attractive. Too bad he's started going out with one of the other girls in our crew recently. x-p

I love my dark brown hair. But I've known that I would look good as red. I had that feeling the first time I did it and I was right. How else would I know unless I tried right? So this happens only every few years that I want a change. And it's easy enough to go back if I need to.

Ah since you have lighter skin that makes sense you look good as a blonde. When I was a little girl I wanted to be bright blonde. My mother wouldn't let me and eventually I got that out of my system.

That's cool about the amature movies. I'd love to direct. I think I have a natural talent for it. Sucks he's taken. Look elsewhere. It will happen eventually. We have our preferences but personality and common ground is way more important.
Michi_x_blackroses_x on June 11th, 2012 08:46 pm (UTC)
Your hair looks great both ways, yep. I find I like curls best when they're red (like mine, hehe) or dark brown or black. It must be fun to switch to a different color every so often when you feel like it. ^^ I would never do the permanent color change my mom did.
^^ Haha, yeah, my favorite blondes are usually platinum (like almost white) or bright yellowish. xD

Ooh, perhaps we could all eventually collaborate on a film. ;) Yeah...it's unfortunate, because I've been going out a few times over the past year or so with another guy who really likes me, and I love him as a friend...we get along really well and have a lot in common, so it's great fun, but there's that dreaded "as a friend" addendum on there. The director I really fancy seemed disinterested in dating for the longest time, but since I've become friends with the girl he recently started to go out with anyway, I'll just remain friends and work with them. Whatever happens happens. I think we could be good together given the chance...we've got things in common, just enough differences to make it interesting, and I like his personality and everything...but who knows.

Glad to hear you finally got your hair how you like it. I'd have been skeptical of something that makes you blonde in one shot no matter how dark your hair is, too. Unless it's at a salon, where they have the professional stuff and it's properly ventilated and all that, since those are usually pretty strong chemicals.
Des: Gaus my budgiethagirion on June 6th, 2012 12:19 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I saw that on the box and knew it wouldn't work. But it's nice now. Definitely need to get a pic.
