Oh, my Blondie!

Do blondes have more fun? I don’t know, but they sure as hell should – at least the stubborn brunette ones, because it is so hard to achieve a nice blond, keep the hair healthy and avoid the brass…or some other weird color. Yesterday at work I came across Maria who now has unintentional purple lowlights in her blond attempt. A few weeks ago I tried to tone my own brassy yellow with an ash tone and ended up green. Green! Like a witch. When I woke up my son for school the next morning, he visibly flinched at the sight of me! By the way – green hair remedy, should you ever need it on your quest to blond: mix lemon juice and hair conditioner in a 2:1 ratio, apply to dry hair and leave it on for about 30 minutes; rinse and the green should be gone. Worked for me. After that, go have fun (more than you had as your old brunette self) because you seriously deserve it!
