You can probably tell by now that I am a pretty determined and persistent person. Coloring at a salon costs too much. If I can save $600 to $1,200 a year coloring my own hair, I can eat all I want. Talking about food, I am gaining my weight back again. I need body fat to sustain the bitter cold.
Anyway, back to hair coloring. I decided to give it another try. This time, I decided to use a new bottle of coloring cream and used up the entire bottle. In addition, I let the color sit on my hair longer. Instead of coloring the hair in 30 minutes, I doubled the time to an hour. Third time is a charm. I am glad to say that I have finally succeeded in coloring my own hair. Though I do not have hair highlights like I get from a beauty salon, I am glad that I am able to cover up my gray hair. I will see how it goes. Maybe I will add some hair highlights later.
By the way, I think the reason that coloring didn’t work previously was my reuse of the coloring cream, which might have already oxidized and become useless. In addition, I might have rinsed the color off too quickly before it could even stay on my hair.
Anyway, I am glad that it works this time to save me a trip to the beauty salon and prevent my wallet from bleeding.
Oh, the coloring cream I used is L’oreal Natural Match Color Crème Gloss No Ammonia, Color 4N. I bought it on clearance and it cost me only $2.23 before tax. Isn’t that a bargain!
