Adventures in hair color: Garnier Light Nude Brown

June 6, 2017

It to ANYONE that I dye my hair. People at work don’t even blink anymore when I swing from reddish to brownish to blondish.

This is my dream hair at the moment. It’s a simple textured bob with some brown balayage (fancy word for two different colors). Until I work up the nerve to do that, I continue to bring the color of the roots up, and tone the color of the ends down.

My most recent color was purchased strictly because the name made me giggle: Light Nude Brown. Is this a brown with no blue or no red undertones? Inquiring minds needed to know. Here’s the before and after.

To my knowledge, this is a historic blog day. Other than the old pictures from when I was young, I don’t think I’ve ever shown the natural color on the blog. But it’s 2017, and the oceans are rising, so why not let it all hang out?

That dirty blonde shmutz-color at the roots is my regular color. The Garnier covered it nicely as well as neutralized the nuclear orange ends. I’m very pleased and will likely stick with this color for the summer.

(That’s Garnier’s cue to discontinue the color, by the way.)

Last night I had a dream that Lin-Manuel Miranda was hosting a salad-making contest. He’d pull the name of a salad out of a hat and you’d have to build it. The winner got to smooch Jason Bateman.

I was eliminated because I didn’t know what a Shayfield salad was and couldn’t build it. I don’t even get to smooch Jason Bateman in my dreams.

    Would LMM proceed to improvise a freestyle rap about said salad?

      My God that would have been amazing, but even I don’t dream that well. 🙂
