I have been so busy and not making much money for some time now. Like many mothers, any extra money I get goes right to the needs of my children and never to frivolities for myself. For a year I have been using a box color on my hair that of course turns brassy and leaves my hair dry. Then I only get a haircut every 6 months because a haircut for me is $40 and both my boys get a haircut every 6 weeks for that price. Well, I have been working lately as a part time substitute and although I am making next to nothing compared to many, it is a lot for our family. I am excited to have money for Christmas and groceries (a HUGE load off my mommy mind). I am also excited because today was the day that I spent money on ME and got a long overdue and much needed hair do. (Look here, I was talking about this in MAY for Pete’s sake) At 41 years old I had to get rid of the box color blonde and go back to my roots. . . no, really, the stylist matched the dark ash blonde in my grown out roots and gave me an all over color with highlights on top! I am so happy and love the new look. The haircut is incredible too! After shedding 4 or more inches of dead ends my hair feels and looks so pretty. (if I do say so myself) 🙂
Here is my before:
I took one in the sunlight when I got home to show that the brassiness is gone! Hooray, a more natural look.
