So I have done hair for 6 years now and I have NEVER colored my own hair! I guess it is because ALL of my friends do hair and they have always been available for me! Well, I have had to take the leap and do it my self. Let me just say it was a terrible mess! I had color all over my face, back, arms, floor and everything else in my bathroom. I also said I was never going to go black again because of what a project it is to lighten in. Oh well... I was desperate!
