I did it. I dyed my hair red. Well, this was about a week and a half ago, so it's already pretty faded by now, but still, it's red. I may have also dyed a humiliating amount of my forehead pink, as well as all my fingernails, but let's just ignore that.
I used to dye my hair pink all the time and I loved how vibrant it was and I felt like pink suited me a lot, but I stopped doing it mostly because I really don't like the process of dying it and desperately hoping I'm not going to get dye everywhere. It feels so messy and grubby, and I have never been able to successfully avoid dying some of my skin. I guess after watching a blue-haired friend re-dye her hair recently I got the hair dye nostalgia in me and had to do it, but the process definitely reminded me why I decided to stop. Besides the fact that I ultimately think my natural hair colour is the best. It's just nice to have a change.
This was actually three dyes mixed together, so it has a nice variation of tone, which I like. The bulk was Manic Panic Red Passion, with a bit of Crazy Colour Fire and Vermillion Red thrown in. I think the pink tones have a softness to them somehow, whereas the red and orange tones look a bit harsher on me, but hopefully they make a nice combo here.
