Because I am a cheapskate, I dye my own hair. I don’t do a particularly good job (as I’m probably the only employed girl in this city who doesn’t own a comb (to properly apply the hair dye) and sometimes, an old toothbrush is nowhere to be found) but I’d rather grab a box of cheapy dye (I used to switch brands with every re-dye but I now stick to Kolours which is a little over 200 pesos a box and available in my neighborhood ghetto grocery), spend an hour in my living room with a plastic cap (or bag!) over my head, and smoke and dick around the internets while waiting for the color to set than spend close to two thousand pesos for a professional to do it for me (I’d rather that money go to weight loss pills, tyvm).
I’m cheap, I tell ya. Besides, it’s just hair.
My roots have been bothering me for a couple of weeks now and I finally found the time to recolor the growth last night. This color’s called Zen Auburn and all I could do was giggle at myself when I saw how orange it was last night, after rinsing. Gladly, the color looks a bit better today, if not a little too red for my liking. I really wanted to just go a lighter shade of brown but Zen Auburn was new (and I never use the same color twice in a row).
