#SELF-CARE 101: HAIR DYE STAINS & ADULTING IS 50/50

Good evening πŸŒ™

So woke up thus morning around 8, relieved to learn that I took vacation from work. Today was going to be a day of slow and steady relaxation, productivity of spring cleaning, and just sitting back thinking about…. Things. Woke and got into the groove of binge watching Criminal Minds on Netflix. After taking care of errands, I deep cleaned my living room, disinfecting everything, wipe down surfaces, and putting things away.

Then, it was time to take care of me. I decided to try out Overtone, an all natural hair coloring system. I got the color Ginger, and started the process. I wore my gloves, took out a glob, and went to town on my hair, saturating it with the beautiful reddish-brown hue. In the midst of equally distributing the color, my glove broke on my left middle finger, causing the color to stain it. Then, I played the waiting game of letting the color sit for 15-20 minutes. Once I let it sit, it was time to rinse. Cue the OH SHIT!!!!!

As I’m standing in the shower, slowly rinsing the color out of my hair, I look to see my hands turn orange, and almost 1/2 of my bathtub turns a light yellow 😨😨😨. I go through my hair, seeing the issue, that maybe I put a tad too much color in my hair. Taking my time and enjoying the rest of my shower, I got out and dried my hair, only to see it turn to a deep burgundy. That’s a start…

Then I continued binge watching Criminal Minds until Dad came home. We hung out for a little while, had a little heart to heart, until it was time for him to go to work.

So here is what I learned from today…

  • Dying your hair will ALWAYS require gloves- the good ones
  • Wash/Rinse color out in KITCHEN sink to prevent stains
  • Ask Mom to assist in hair coloring process
  • It’s ok, you’re learning and trying new things
  • I DID IT BY MYSELF FOR THE FIRST TIME!!!

Well I hope everyone is still staying safe and healthy through these times. Hopefully you got a few laughs from this one. Time to call it a night.

Until next time…
