New Hair!

I haven't mentioned it here, simply because I don't know how many people actually read my blog, but I announced my pregnancy a month or so ago, and now I'm needing to and I'm ready to unannounce it. I miscarried for ten or so days, then went to the hospital and had a d&c because things just were not passing fast enough for me. That was last Thursday, one week ago today and I'm feeling MUCH better. Better than I've felt in a long time actually. I had a wonderful bunch of mama friends supporting me and lifting me up, virtually and IRL. May dad and step mom came into town to watch the kids for two days, my mom and MIL and SIL really chipped in to care for me and the kids and I tell you, I've just never felt so loved in my life. My wonderful husband basically took on the mom and dad role for two weeks while I was laid up. Thank you all for your love, help and support. I love you all.

Ok, now to get to the title of my post.....It's a tradition (sad, but true) that I dye my hair after miscarriage. Last time I went blonde (totally didn't work btw) and this time I went black. I though maybe I'd feel sexy with my pale skin and black hair over the winter, and maybe it'll help me to loose a bit of weight? Anyway, here we go...

We take a bottle of Loreal Feria shimmering black or something like that:

Add in some natural roots (I've got pretty dark hair in the first place as you can see so I'm expecting this to go over pretty well) and a long overdue redish-pinkish-orangish BAD home dye job:

Let it set for 25 minutes:

The result? A nice deep, dark, semi-metallic black that makes me look hot as hell LOL:

The End.
