Colored My Hair For the First Time in Over 3 Years!

I think the last time I colored my hair was right before I found out I was pregnant with our now 2.5yr old twins. The color of my hair was the last thing on my mind while I was the size of a house. After the twins were born, I was lucky to get to wash my hair, never mind color it. I actually barely remember to go get my haircut more than once every 9 to 12 months.

Well after only 8 months, I remembered to have my haircut a little over a week ago. I happened to not care so much for the haircut and decided that some color might make me feel better about it. Plus I had been noticing more grays lately.

The color I opted for was Natural Instincts #30 Rosewood. I thought it would be a nice color for fall. My husband helped me apply the color as he's done many times in the past. Aren't I lucky girls?

I'm pretty happy with the results. The main goal was for me to hide my gray hairs and this particular Clairol product delivered. As usual, you can't really see the color unless I am standing in bright light. Otherwise, the color just seems like a darker richer version of my natural shade. The camera's flash really helps to show the difference in color.


Before and After


So far the color has stayed in place. I've had other permanent hair coloring kits come off the gray hairs after just a few washings. It could be that the special color-protecting conditioner that came with the kit is making the difference.

Well, what do you think? Should I go more burgundy next time?
