my hair hasn't been its natural color for about ohhhh 5 years.
heres a kind of timeline of the colors, as you can see i didn't get to crazy with color and id get lazy and go months without redying (as you can tell from a few of those pics)
its basically in sequence, except the first two, which should be switched, but other than that it goes from 4 years ago, to the color it is right now, which is pretty close to my natural color.

it's been brown for almost six months now and i'm bored with it! i think i'm gonna grow it long but i miss color too! but i don't want the high maintenance of a full head of color, whats a girl to do?!

Today I am going to use a semi-permanent dye on my hair. The instructions say that my hair should be towel dried to a damp state before I dye it. I have always used permanent dyes before, and I have always done it while my hair was dry. I am totaly confused.

Why do I want it damp? What is the difference between dying hair while it is damp or while it is dry? Is it possible that it is supposed to be damp to ease the spreading of the dye through my hair (as it is a foam)? Is there a downside to dying hair while it is damp?

i think it spreads easier when wet
i personaly wet my hair before all dye-ing because its less knotty then, i'm sure it wont matter if you do it dry

Okay. I have a question. I just got my hair cut into a cute bob. I have two problems though.
 1. The hairdresser cut my fringe a little farther over this time and it goes over a cowlick. So, I have fringe, fringe, fringe, cowlick!, fringe. Any suggestions?

 2. The bottom of my hair is supposed to curl underneath. About half of my hair does this, and the rest flips up, even when it's been blowdried. Any suggestions to get the hair to flip under?

i used to have the same problem, well i wanted my hair to curl out, not in, but the solution is the same. I'm pretty sure the easiest way to fix it is to buy a curling iron and just curl the ends in before you go out.

I second the curling iron thing.

Or if you don't want to buy one and have a round brush, curl the hair under around the brush and hold it there, then spray it with a bunch of hairspray.  Wait a second to let it dry before taking the brush out, and it should stay.  Mine does, anyway.

for the curling problem: mousse your hair at the roots, finger comb from the roots outward while blowdrying and finish off with an enamel barrel brush while blowdrying it

I am so jealous of you guys hair! I need some advice/help

This was taken back in the summer of 06 but I just got my hair cut about a month ago and its back to this length. It doesn't curl the way I would like it to so I absolutely hate wearing it down. It's parted in the middle and looks weird when it is down, so I don't even bother with leaving it down. I would like to do something different with it, but leave it to where I can still put it up whenever I don't have time to bother with it and something that will work whether its curly or I straighten it.

And because I'm fugly and was singing along to American Idol, I had to paint over my face.  Tongue This was before it was cut.

so my hair was about midback lenght, and it's been that lenght for a while (well obviously) and it was getting really tedious and all i ever could do with it was put it up into ponytails or buns.
after some consideration, i got this: much of my hair cut off

and i love my new hair:

I think it could be the cut at the bottom.  I'm not a hairdresser but my friend has little girls and she wanted their hair to curl under so the stylist angled the cut UNDERNEATH so the hair on top was longer than the hair under and it naturally curled under.


YOU ARE NOT FUGLY!!!!  Oh, my word, what a cute smile!!!  Stop it!!!   And you've got great hair!  Looks like you have some natural wave which is nice to have!  Have you tried parting it on the side instead?
