I had Friday off work because I had to wake up at 5:30 am to take my mom to a medical appointment. She was being put under anesthesia, so she couldn’t drive. I’m usually just going to sleep between 4 and 5 am, so I wasn’t too happy about this. I had requested the day off work (even though I’m not scheduled until 2 pm) because I figured afterwards I would come home and sleep most of the day.
Surprisingly, I didn’t feel much like going to sleep once I got home. I drank an energy drink and then I decided to go get my hair done because it really needed it. I didn’t really know for sure what I wanted done, so I kind of just made up my mind when I got there. I was thinking about just getting my blonde touched up, but I also mentioned possibly wanting to go pink again. My stylist was really excited about that because she said she hadn’t got to do pink hair in years. She said everyone seems to want blue or purple hair. I actually did almost go blue too, but I decided against it since when it fades it usually leaves a greenish tint to your hair.
I went pink in February of last year, and you can see my post about it here. It was a little bit lighter. I went with a darker and more vibrant color this time since I knew it would last a bit longer. The color I chose is called Magenta. The color I had last time was called Wild Orchid, but it faded out within a couple weeks. That’s why I was hesitant to go this route again because color always fades out of my hair really fast. I even do things to help it last longer like not washing my hair as much, and taking lukewarm showers (as opposed to hot showers, which I prefer). Sometimes I just want a change though, even if it only lasts a short time. My hair looks slightly darker when I’m indoors, but in the sunlight it’s really bright. I’m pretty happy with how it turned out.
