Dying to be Brunette

So, the hair saga continues! Those who have followed me from the start will know I have had quite an extensive hair history! This time last year I had long, blonde locks! Have a recky at my hair history post from January to witness the evidence or if you don't believe me! :)
Then I had it all chopped and dyed almost black!! Yar, rather drastic! But I definitely prefer it darker now, but recently, it had got to the stage where the black colour was just a bit blah and was washing me out and making me feel a tad ghostly.
So off to hairdressers I skipped, and told them I was aiming for a warmer, yummier chocolatey brown colour. Because my hair was so dark and heavily saturated with every bottled colourant under the sun...the 'cleansing' process began! I like the way my hairdressers refer to this process as 'cleansing'! It made it sound so delicate and soothing, when, in actually fact, my hair was being coated in some toxic concotion that was stripping all life and colour out of it within an inch of its life!
20 minutes later...I had actually orange hair. To say I resembled Krusty the Clown would be an understatement. It was hideous and mildly mortifying as the other customers I'm sure thought I had voluntarily opte for this rather ravishing shade of orange!!
Anyhooo, 4 hours later of entering the barnet brigade, I left feeling slightly less orange and rather chuffed with my new chocolatey locks. How it is now isn't the final result I'm after. In 2 weeks once my hair has had time to recover from its ordeal, I need to go back and have another colour put on which will make it richer and more luscious and chocolatey. But for the time being, I am rather pleased! But stay tuned, my hair is constantly a working progress...! I will never be satiated...


So what the hell, once I had my pose and pout on, there was no stopping me, so I thought I'll do a quick FOTD and OOTD for you lovelies...

It looks so pretty! I saw the old posts where it was blonde and then when you went dark and I can't believe how good you look with almost black hair! If I looked that good with that dark of hair I'd dye it in a heartbeat.
