I dyed my hair last night. I used one of those natural hair dyes, the kind deemed perfectly safe for a pregnant lady. I bought it at Whole Foods. Before I got pregnant I dyed my hair using the standard over-the-counter variety, the toxic kind. During my pregnancy, I’ve been going to the salon to have my color evened out, which is pricey to say the least especially since I’ve been paying for the nontoxic kind. Whole Foods at Union Square was out of Henna and since Toby and I are currently on a very tight budget, I decided to try something new, safe and cheap. This was one of the worst decisions I have made in a long, long time.
I bought a color I thought was a cross between my natural hair color (which is a perfect shade of strawberry blond and white trash brown) and the color the salon has been giving me (an even red). I ended up with a really, really dark, almost black color. I am a pale person. My face is stark white and smothered in freckles. I look goth. I would take a picture but I’m really cranky about it.
