Right before I left for Oklahoma, I got my hair done. Except the girl who does it thought it would be super fun to do it bright purple/pink. I cried like a baby when she turned my chair around and revealed the finished product. I looked like Rainbow Brite, for real. I began washing it daily with baking soda and shampoo and in really hot water. It has calmed down so much! This is two weeks AFTER it was colored. It's finally starting to fade. Thank goodness.
