It seemed like a good idea at the time.
I won't regale you with a boring and long-winded story. I think the pictures explain it the best.
My life felt drab, so I decided to do some FIRE ENGINE RED:
FIRE ENGINE RED didn't exactly work out. But that's why God invented "Color OOPS!":
Now how do you fix a "Color OOPS" OOPS? With more "Color OOPS!":
Well maybe if I bleach it?:
That color isn't so bad. But it's still a bit too yellow. But hey, that's what toner is for, right?"
OMFG I'm GREY. I guess I could always blame it on "deployment stress"?
So now (the grand unveiling):
400 million shampoos later (using medicated anti-dandruff shampoo and dish soap, and alternating deep conditioning hair mask in between washings) I have achieved what I consider to be a "tolerable" platinum:
It's still looks a bit white depending on what light I'm in, but I would much prefer to have hair that's almost white than be straight-up GREY. (hey, you can even se my piercings in that picture).
