Most of you probably recognise my hair colour as something along these lines...
I've been dying it various shades of dark brown for some time now. I only use semi permanent colours as I don't want to deal with the maintenance and damage of a permanent colour. I like being able to do it at home as well. It means I can squeeze it in any time of day or night when I have the time and it's fiduciarially a lot gentler on my delicate bank balance.
It's almost become a bit of an addiction lately. Over the last six months I've been going darker and darker. It's finally at the stage where my need to go darker means I've graduated onto the black dye. I've been looking forward to it for a while now and finally took the time out on Saturday.
It came out black but, frankly, not black enough. I want it to look like it's a black abyss that you could jump right into and never come out of. This shade of black was just a bit too... Meh. So despite the mess and annoyingness of the whole job I did it again on Monday.
Please excuse how tired I look. I wasn't really wearing makeup apart from mascara and lip gloss and was still recovering from a very big Saturday night dance-fest. The colour is certainly an improvement on the previous effort. It's starting to take on that lovely, deep black tone. I'm still not happy, though. I want it blacker.
Do you have the same struggles getting the perfect colour?
