Hey, thanks for all your ideas, girls!! I decided to try using my flat iron in the same way that I did last week, but this time, I moved it rapidly through my hair, and, as Scuttle would say, "Voila...
So, Patty Duke came over tonight for some dinner (Ken is out of town, so I told her to come eat with us) and some hair experimentation. I originally thought we'd just be curling her hair, but she actually asked me to dye it first! Ahhh! I was nervous, but it turned out really nice! We thought we'd take a "before shot":
Patty actually wanted to dye her hair black! She's so brave! She's very adventurous with her hair. She told me she used to have short, blonde hair in high school! Who'd have thunk it?
Here I am with my cool gloves:
The dyeing process:
Sadie pretended to dye her hair while I was working on Patty's. There was this extra comb-in thing that we weren't using, so she had a good time pretending to dye her own hair. If she ever dyes her hair, I will "dye" (Hahaha! I'm so punny!), because her hair is the most gorgous color:
I should have taken it after she finished curling her whole head of hair, but oh well. Patty was very excited about how the color turned out, and I was pleasantly surprised at how shiny it was. I remember, in the past, box dyes being more matte in finish, so I'm glad they've updated them to make one's hair shiny.
Here is a slide show, mainly so that Patty can steal the pictures and throw them on her own blog. Her camera's batteries were dead:
And, Patty, sorry you had to be in my disgusting house. Seriously. So gross. Just want you to know that I did do my dishes after my kids were in bed. :)
