There’s been another development (sorry) with the hair dying situation. I’ve discovered the colour rubs off on my pillow, my clothes, my parents sofa (that was a fun day) and even my hands!
After 10 days I
beer bribed asked my boyfriend to colour the parts of my hair that had faded. He did an excellent job as well! Now 4 days and 1 rinse with cold water since then (big mistake) my hair looks insane or like one of those expensive dip-dyes celebs get – depending on your perspective.
I’ve over heard comments ranging from “Wow, that girls hair is awesome!” to “Shanika I think you should have that hair style – ahaahaa!” Followed by a swift “F*cl< off!” from Shanika. My mates love it but then they are quite alternative and open-minde so no suprise there. I really quite like it to be honest and I’ve never given a damn what other people think – I keep telling myself that anyway.
I think you can prob tell from my exasperated and haggard expression that I’m gutted at just how temporary and uneven the colour is. After all the expense, people’s time/effort and constant cleaning of things that are now frackin’ purple (including my key-board since I’ve been typing this) it’s not worth it. If you have thin/medium or short hair and want a very temporary blast of colour, then Manic Panic is the dye for you – just remember not to wear any light coloured clothes – or go out in the rain….
