Yesterday, I dyed my hair. I was trying to go "back to natural" because my hair is (ought to be) a sort of medium brown. It was orange. So I bought some dye, the cheap-y kind, in "dark brown", which seemed to match my root colour pretty well, and went home. I mixed it all up, put it in, washed it out, and went to bed. I woke up looking freakishly pale. Instead of "Rich Medium Brown", I am dark, dark, dark brown.
So in my continuing trend of slightly pointless posts with ridiculous questions, I ask you, have you ever either a) dyed your hair thinking it would end up one way, and have it not, or b) ever had that "oh shit" moment of realizing something about yourself that you really should have known (i.e. that you are so white you kinda glow sometimes)?
