NTS: Apply Heat

If you want a deep, brilliant color in hair: apply heat.

We bleached Kyra's hair and then put in turquoise dye. It sat in her hair for almost an hour and came out a light green. She was gracious and did not act too disappointed. In fact, I think I was more upset than she was. I did not sleep well.

Today I reread the bottle and it said to apply heat for deeper colors. OK, how do I apply heat? I made it up: add color, wrap in tin foil, fry hair with the straight iron, unwrap hair, heat hair again with straight iron, rinse.

Wha-la, deep, brilliant turquoise.

Who knew? Not I. I've never dyed hair before. I've only recently watched a zillion 12 year olds on YouTube doing it, mostly with kool-aid and chalk pastels.

See the sidebar, ladies. I updated the pictures. The dye doesn't seem to be staying in though. I thought semi-permanent would be at least a month. Ugh.
