Green eggs and ham, I do not like them Sam I Am.

No, this is not about eggs or ham, but rather green hair. For the first time in all my life I have experienced a box color emergency. A few weeks back I posted my new-do as a platinum blonde. That was fun for about a week, and then I felt like it made me look old. So while we were at the grocery store, I picked up a box of Ash Blonde and headed home to get my youth back. Just for the record, green hair makes me look old and weird. Something had to be done and at once. I put on my favorite hat and headed back to the store for more liquid youth restorer. Needless to say, this color is slightly better than the green, but is still not normal. I have placed a frantic call to my stylist to see if she can repair this mess. Oh well, again another lesson that I might just need in preparation for our move to Mexico.
Update: I have an appointment this afternoon for repair. Stay tuned...


  1. One time I tried to dye my friend Stacey's hair. She wanted to be an Ann-Margaret redhead. So off to the store we went for Clairol. Couldn't find the right color so we mixed. Needless to say, I ended up paying a stylist a ton of money to fix it. Good luck!

  2. And in Mexico you can get copper-colored stripes just like one of our favorite bloggers from Manzanillo.

  3. Steve and Lynn, fortunatly my stylist has agreed to see me today. So I can only pray that things get better and not worse. Your right Steve, I could have copper streaks like New Beginnings. Hey, that would be an improvement from here.

  4. It can always be worse, much worse.
    Once when I was feeling really blue, I let my daughter talk me into letting her bleach my hair blond. It was bad, beyond bad. I had three distinct and unattractive shades of yellow (you couldn't exactly call them blond) ranging from pale butter to marigold orange. We had to use several bottles of toner to make it look less like I was in the ummm escort business. The fact that it started to break off whenever I brushed it just added to the trauma. It did, however, take my mind off my other problems.

  5. Too bad we didn't get to see the green! Congrats on the red, it looks great!

  6. Debi and Theresa, well the red is an improvement, but still a bit artifical. I am staying with it until next month when Stylist will start working my way back to normal. I still plan on going natural when we move to Mexico. The good news is that our parrot didnt scream "Stranger!" when I came through the door tonight.
