12 step program..............plus 5 hours......

Wow..talk about eating "Humble Pie"....I broke all my own rules and used Stevi as a Guinea Pig because the girls on the team wanted to put blue in there hair for the National Tournament.  Glad I did, but wish I didn't.

  1. Highlight hair and add blue chunks.
  2. Very carefully rinse each foil individually careful not to contaminate the blonde with the blue.
  3. Shampoo and start shitting Twinkies as the suds get bluer and bluer
  4. Condition while hair is turning green
  5. Laugh hysterically (nervous laughter) because you don't know what the hell you're going to do to fix it.
  6. Do a bleach wash which isn't working so put her under the dryer for 7-10 mins.
  7. Wash and condition again, and turn hair aqua green again.
  8. Re-foil whole head and bleach over what should be blonde with conditioner and 10 volume and put red over blue to nuetralize.
  9. Take foils out, sigh of relief as it looks clean and somewhat normal
  10. Shampoo and Condition hair and watch the blue come back into the suds,,,,,,What the F!
  11. Hair is breaking so time for deep conditioner
  12. Tone with Strawberry Blonde Flash Toner by Paul Mitchell, looking good......
  13. Wash and deep condition.......Here comes the F'ing Blue again, What the hell, won't you go away!
  14. Cut hair fairly short, it needs it.......oh my god what have I done.........
  15. Put darkest red brown on hair to try to at least cover hair to a normal color.....
  16. Drive home, rinse and condition........It still has a bluish green tinge.
I used to be a color educator?  Nice.  My beautiful baby girl was crying, she hates her hair, I wish I could take it all back, there is nothing I can do.  My heart is completely broken, I know how it feels to have messed up hair, it does grow......but she starts Middle School at a new school in 6 weeks, I have my work cut our for me.  I slept with her last night and held her all night, I am crying as I write this and my heart is broken.  She is still my beautiful baby, but I ruined her hair, her gorgeous blonde girl next door and turned her into a dark goth.  She keeps telling me it is ok.

It's not.  But it will be, with time and patience......

Oh Stevi! I am so sorry honey! I had my hair dyed orange once by accident at a salon and the same thing happen to me where we had to cut it all out. On the plus side, you are so pretty that no one will notice your hair. =D

Stevi is absolutely gorgeous with her new cut and dark color! Really makes her eyes POP! Take a picture, Lisa, so everyone can see my beautiful grandaughter. The only problem is, she looks to be around 20 with dark hair. Not good.
