i've been sick of my all-too-normal hair colour for awhile now. close to 2 weeks ago, i bleached the heck out of it and dyed it purple with some stuff here called Crazy Colours, which is like Manic Panic/Special Effects/etc. it came out a lovely mix of purple and blue, but it's already washed out to a strange aqua colour. i don't know if this is because i didn't bleach quite as much as i should have (roots and shorter bits of my hair went nearly white, but the longer bits were sort of a pinkish-red, and yes, i have photos of this), or if pretty coloured hair dye in Ireland is just inferior.
i'll be heading to Edinburgh on Friday for the Dark City Festival, and don't want to look quite like my head is a swimming pool, so i will be redying it again this week. _wirehead_ brought me some Raw forrest green hair dye (a gift from elvendude), which i haven't used yet, not because i'm opposed to dark green hair, but because everything i own that isn't black tends to be maroon, and i'm a bit afraid of looking like an xmas tree. i've also got a lead or two from solo_beckett and ickle_tayto on better brands of dye to use.
so now, in my debut poll, i'm asking for your advice. the poll is check-boxes so that you can indicate that you think multiple colours would be cool, or that you can't decide between a few colours. if you pick more than one, comment below and tell me which you mean (NB: i will not dye my hair more than 2 colours, so give up those visions you have of me with rainbow raver hair now).
what colour should i dye it
if you voted for an unnatural colour, should i bleach again to be sure?
