Red 'n Sassy!

We started at 2pm. We ended at 9:30pm. This was the Hair Day Of Doom.

First Rae separated out the bottom half of my hair and we bleached it with a "radical bleaching kit" from Sally's. My undyed roots (about 1") ended up a vanilla white. The rest of my hair stayed fairly light caramel, so we busted out Manic Panic's Flash lightening kit and went in for a second round on the ends. The best we could get was a french vanilla color, and for fear of totally frying my hair, that's where we stopped.

Then Rae applied the Manic Panic Infra Red very carefully, using those little foil wraps. The wraps were black on the outside, so by the time she had finished it looked like I was either 1) a bald penguin or 2) Darth Vader. We let in soak in for probably an hour or so while I put the enchilada pie I had prepared that morning in the oven and whipped up some spanish rice. Then we watched some Firefly while we ate.

Next, Rae colored the top part of my hair with my usual very-dark-brown with very-red-highlights color (Clairol Natural Instincts #30). We waited 20 minuted and then rinsed until the water ran clear. The foil wraps looked as though they had been used for BBQ rather than hair color! Rinsing took a good long while, and I was on a small step stool with my head hung over into the sink. I was pretty dizzy by the time it was over. We applied a super-conditioner the cute punk girl at Sally's recommended and waited another ten minutes. Rinsed again. Towel dried. And, voila! Sassy red!

Thank you, Raellyn!!

I want to see how it looks with your hair down!

Infra-red was the Manic Panic color Aimee used to use. *sigh* Ahh, the days. I'd like to do that to my hair again, but I hate to get confused for a patient. ;) (I say that in jest, but I really did just have a patient with Manic Panic hair.)
