Well, I did it...sort of. I didn't do my whole head, only the underside, but I love it! Please forgive these pics...there is a reason why I don't take photos ever. I have a huge Scottish nose and semi-crooked eyes that selfies tend to bring out even worse than in real life. I straightened my hair (something I rarely ever do because my natural curls fall pretty nicely and it takes up too much time), but here is the after:
In the sunlight, it's almost a bright bluish-purple which I love even more!
I left it on for two hours this time and I really LOVE the results. I think, on the next go, I will go higher up and leave less blonde, but I'm still not sure I'm going to go whole-headed just yet. I only ended up using half a bottle, and since I bought three boxes, I have plenty for future touch-ups. I'm not sure how long this is supposed to last, but I'm not going to go above and beyond to protect it. I wash my hair every other day and pony-tail it on the off days, so I think that's a good-enough routine.
My mother will still probably have a heart-attack, but oh well, it's my hair and I'm 46, so I guess I'm entitled to do it anyway I want. I'll keep y'all updated on how it stays. Overall, I'm pretty impressed with this stuff, so much so that I actually even left a review on Target.com and I rarely ever leave reviews!
