Tackle It Tuesday – Blonde No More

by Erica

Howdy! It’s Erica here, stepping in to do the tackle for this week. I thought I’d do something a little fun!

It seems for the past several years, every Autumn, I dye my hair brown. It’s mainly because the upkeep on my blonde highlights gets to be a bit much. As a young girl, my hair was bleach blonde. As I got older, my hair got darker. I am pretty sure that now, at the age of 30, my natural color is a light to medium brown.

So instead of saving up money to head to the salon for much needed highlights, I decided to head to my local grocery store to pick up a box of hair dye.

Yep, tonight I am tackling my color, going from blonde to brunette. At least I hope it turns out brown and not red, orange or green. Either way, I will have an after picture for you. (I think) If it comes out horridly, you might have to pay me first.

Okay, here goes nothing:

Getting everything ready. I used Crystal Brown #60 Feria

and here I am.

To be honest, I am not sure if I like it much. I wanted it to be darker, so I might have to do another box to get it the shade I was picturing. But, the nice thing about hair, is that we can always change it.

For those of you visiting today to share your tackle — THANKS for coming!!! Link up below.

Happy Tackling!

I think the shade is GORGE-US. I dont know why you’d want it darker, it looks so warm and, well, autumn-y. Nice job! (I need to do my roots. Very badly. This just made me check them and blush uncomfortably.)

I think the color is perfect. It looks warm and natural.

I think the hair turned out nice. You never know what to expect out of a kit, though. Have a great week!

I think that shade looks lovely on you! Yes, you can always go darker but I like it that light.
