So, when I was very much younger, about 16 years of age, I've decided to dye my hair for the first time at the salon. You know, at that age, you wanna experiment with everything but with absolutely zero experience and knowledge. Ok Ok, I confess, I'm a late bloomer when it comes to beauty and all things vanity. (But now, I'm quite a pro at DIY hair coloring
) So, I was like totally naive and silly. And not surprisingly, my first ever experience in the salon went horribly wrong. I've wanted a medium shade of chestnut but my hair ended up looking like a sprout of mutated carrots
It was a truly horrible ordeal. There was too much bleaching done on my hair so my hair was very brittle and dry. Also, the overbleaching made my scalp feel so raw and painful. I couldn't and shouldn't redye my hair to cover up the really bad dye job with such poor hair condition and aggravated scalp. That was in the early 90s, I was still a high school student then. To think that I've saved the whole month to get this hair coloring done only with disastrous results. It's unmentionable to think that I should fork out more money to get the color corrected professionally again. Neither do I want to go out looking like a carrot top.
So guess what I've masterminded to cover up the botched hair job? Well, I damp my hair a little before braiding up my hair. By sheer brilliance, I've coated the top layer of my hair with the trendiest blue
mascara I could get at the drugstore. Now, why blue? First off, it was very trendy then. Hey, it was the early 90s. Also with my artistic background, blue mixed with orange makes brown, the intended hair color of my choice. So I apply a few coats of that mascara to tame my medusa. The result, as you have guessed, a total catastrophe! On reflection now, it makes me shudder just thinking about it. If you're wondering, my hair looks normal
