Orange Crush

It’s… still kind of orange.

I’ve been washing it faithfully with Head & Shoulders, and it’s faded quite a bit, but I still have my orange temples (That’s totally going to be the name of my band, by the way: Amber and The Orange Temples) and am having to choose my outfits really carefully, because while it looks not too orange with some things, other colours just seem to bring out the OMGORANGE and make it glow like a radioactive carrot. So it’s really messing with my important FASHUN, to be honest.

(Someone on Twitter told me I should use Head & Shoulders Lemon? I just have the regular stuff, so maybe that’s where I’m going wrong?)

In some lights, it looks almost back to normal. And in other lights…

BOOM BOOM POW! ORANGE!

And after that, Amber had well and truly learned her lesson, and she never dabbled with hair dye ever again, The End.

Haha, April Fools! In March.

OK, I’m just kidding: this isn’t what it actually looks like. The top photo is unfiltered (and doesn’t really show the full extent of TEH ORANGE, to be honest), but the other two have been run through my BFF, Instagram which, in addition to making me look a bit like a vampire, ups the orange quotient by quite a bit. Quite a bit. This is how it FEELS to me, though. It’s a bit like walking around with a giant sign on my head that says, “Hey, everyone! This woman is stupid! She thought she was using a temporary colour glaze, but actually it was a semi-permanent colour! LOL!”

Still, at least I’m in no danger of getting dandruff any-time soon…
