The Switch Up …. Getting over the Blonde Blues

I had the hair blues last week. I was completely over my blonde hair. But the last few times I’ve had my hair colored it cost me a pretty penny and I didn’t want to pay an arm and a leg for another color job.

Insert here {->semi permanent color<-} otherwise known as a rinse. This deposits color into your hair that somewhat rinses out in 4-12 shampoos. Now because my hair is already lifted I knew any darker color would take well to my ends. I’ve always thought of red as an autumn color and knew this was the perfect time to make it happen.


I got Adore’s Raging Red, based my edges with Vaseline, put on some rubber gloves and went to work on the already colored part of my hair. I allowed the color to sit on my hair for about 30 minutes before washing my hair with shampoo and conditioner. And WHAT A RED YUCKY MESS in the shower plus I completely stained my towels lol. Let me tell ya’ll, the color was exactly as the label suggested Raging RED. Last weekend, I went to Phoenix for an all girls trip and met up with my girl AskPRoy. She gave me some pointers on how to reduce on the messiness of a rinse.


Tip #1 Rinse your hair in the kitchen sink, because it’s metal it won’t stain the sink.

Tip #2 Use dark towels so you won’t ruin your towels.


Now, although I received alot of compliments on my hair, Raging Red was just too Red for me and gave me a washed out look in my opinion especially since winter is coming and I ain’t havin it lol. So I read up on it and decided to rinse it again on Monday. This time I used Adore’s Copper Brown to tone it down some and used P Roy’s tips to avoid the mess I made the week before.
To be honest nobody notices the difference BUT I like it better and that’s what counts. Now, I’m completely satisfied and all ready for the Love the Hair You Wear hoodie photoshoot this upcoming Saturday! Stay Tuned!
