I've been feeling bored with my hair color for a while now, so I decided I was going to dye it. I found a dye purporting to be made for dark brown hair and I picked a shade of bright red. Well. I sort of forgot that the last time I dyed my hair (4+ years ago), there was a lot less of it-- it's currently waist length, not just below my shoulders.

Of course I didn't buy two packages of dye like a sane person. Of. Course. Not. Ahahaha.

Add to that I was rushing to get the stuff on and off my head because zomgthefumessobadargh, and I ended up with kind of a piss-poor dye job. -_-;; See, the resulting color is bright cherry kool-aid red, and the un-dyed bits are a REALLY OBVIOUS medium brown... oh yeah, it's fab.

After much consultation with Facebook, I'm going to buy two more boxes of dye tomorrow and try to get the spots I missed.

L'Oreal Hi-Color? That's the only dye I've ever found specifically for dark hair.

Oh yeah. That one is BAD. If you have a Sally Beauty Supply nearby, go there and find the Hi-Color. It's remarkably light on the fumes, even for me, who's severely asthmatic.

The fumes, THE FUMES. D8 *flail*

Seriously though, the Hi-Color's almost pleasant and doesn't even burn.
