A Little Change...Well Maybe Not So Little

Well, today I had my hair died back to my natural color. Close to my natural color at least. We'll have to wait for it to grow out to see for sure. I'd been thinking about changing it back for a while. Ever since middle school I have highlighted or dyed my hair blonder. I would go through short periods of letting it go back natural, but it was almost always colored. It's been about 5 years since it was my natural color. I was just kind of tired of having to go get it colored every 8 weeks. I also thought it the amount of money I was wasting on it was silly. We could use that money for so many other things. I also had recently had a not so great coloring experience. The last time I got it lightened they couldn't get the color to lift (lighten) like it was supposed to so they just kept leaving me under the heater. I was sweating to death and my head was burning and itching from the bleach. They blamed it on my hormones still trying to balance out after having the baby, but I wasn't convinced. A few days after I got it colored, my head was super itchy, still burning, and my scalp started flaking really badly. That pretty much sealed the deal that I was going to go back to natural.

The before.

The after.

Slightly different don't you think? :) It's going to take some getting use to, but I like it just fine.

Oh yeah, LOST is on tonight! Whoo hoo! I'm excited to learn what's up with Richard Alpert! Who is he? Where did he come from? Why doesn't he age? Exactly how long has he been on the island? So many questions!!!


  1. Now when you get in the sun, you'll get natural highlights...much cheaper! That's the way I like to get mine. That's why I absolutely must go to the beach once or twice a year. Hey yea, just save up the money you don't spend on your hair and use it for a trip to the beach!

  2. I love it! I used to get my hair highlighted all the time but I haven't had that done in like 3 years. We just didn't have the money to spend going and getting mine done either! I mean now days we barely have enough to justify a haircut, ha!!

  3. I think your hair looks fabulous! I love it!! It looks so healthy and shiney... but you've always had great hair, so that's nothing new.

  4. Bonus: Now my hair and eyebrows are the same color! Ha!

    Oh yeah, that picture of the three of us was from St. Patricks Day, incase you couldn't tell! :)
