The anti-color Black

Much to my dismay, I tried to dye my own hair. As you can see by the pictures, I was very successful in choosing a dark BLACK tone. What I was not successful in doing was choosing a nice solid dark brown. Well, I am stuck with it for now. I am too poor to go to some fancy salon to fix it, so I will do my best using shampoo and sun to bleach it out. My sweet daughter keeps telling me it is beautiful. So I guess when I am in a moment of near tears over the matter I will look to her for some solace. I told my husband I did not want to leave the house because it was so bad, and he said "It's not that bad." Which to me says, "I need you to leave the house with me right now, but yes, it looks pretty weird." So I will not seek the approval from him. Good thing he loves me! Enjoy my most embarrassing pictures.

It really is black Nikki! Of course I think you're always beautiful, even with "natural dark drown" hair. I love the pics. . .it makes me feel like I am there with you, witnessing you looking at your new do for the 1st time :) Wish I was rich enough to drive up there, and steal you away to that fancy salon :)Emily

Yes, I'm leaving you two comments, but maybe you can change the name of your blog to "Shades of my hair" HA

Hey Nikki, I've just bumped into your blog by accident and when I saw your pictures my first thoughts were definitely not "that's a weird hair do!" To me you look like you must have looked this way all your life :)Don't worry, the colour will fade and you'll find yourself experimenting with an even crazier one.

Lovely family, yummy strawberries! :)
