Strand Test?!?

Yeah, right! I barely have the time to color all my hair, let alone take the time for a strand test!

I have a beautiful silver crown ...Not that kind...
this kind...

So I try to touch up the roots every 6 or so weeks. The problem is I have never used the same color twice. There are approximately 7,334,213 different shades and brands that are anywhere from auburn to red/brown. It just happens that I've used almost everyone. I just wish I could remember which ones I liked....

There are ridiculous instructions about strand tests, what doesn't make sense is they say the colorant isn't good after an hour, so wouldn't that be an entire box wasted on a strand just to see if it doesn't make your hair fall out or turn it purple? I know- ridiculous!


Also there's a little note about not using the color on eyebrows, so we don't go blind, I guess. Well, my eyebrows have a tendency to fade away, so I like to perk them up with a little color. I normally wash it off earlier, but this time I forgot, and I went a little 'out of the lines' too. So now my roots are done, but I look like Groucho Marks- sans the cigar!

You are a VERY brave woman...doing your own hair. That's one thing I'm pretty positive I'll never do on my own. I had a roommate whose hair turned purple and she spent major $ getting it fixed. Sorry about the eyebrow mishap this time...hopefully it'll fade soon.
