Say It. I Dare You.

I'm not quite figuring out the ombre hair color trend. To me it just looks like someone either can't be bothered to do their roots or they're letting color grow out and they don't want to spend the money to have something done to it in the interim.

Can anyone explain? Possibly someone that has it (and I hope I haven't offended you )?

"Self," I continued, "now no one will know you were too damn poor to have your highlights redone; quite the contrary, in fact. They'll think you're trendy, cutting-edge, and spent a couple hundred for a look that used to only worthy of ridicule and shame!"

I never really liked it as a color choice, though. It looks terrible, IMO, but damn is it ubiquitous...now that I can afford to keep up with my highlights, of course. So, though I've sported it (unwittingly), but I can't explain it. I guess since it's going to kill your hair anyway, might as well kill the hair at the ends. Perhaps it's about the only thing that hasn't been done yet, in terms of hair color (basically meaning they're out of ideas)?

Dood, get over it; there's no time limit on lurking.

I so busy runnin' allllllll over the place and ain't nobody chasin' me!

That's what it looks like to me, too. Good way to take time between root touch ups and call it trendy.

This is the only photo I could find where it looks decent to me-like you were doing something and not just growing it out.

Found another one where it does not look bad.

The second I saw her when she got back, I recognized what she'd done. My college roommate did the same thing one summer, only she was a med to dark brown. Well, DD was 15 and dumb as a brick, she thought I'd fall for: We all used lemon in our hair when we were on the beach. Yeah, right.

Our hairdresser knew right away, too, and refused to touch her hair with color. (Past experience is that traditional color will now melt the hair.) She won't admit it, but I'm sure DD thought I'd have to spring for highlighting, in order to make the growth blend in. Instead, she's been 'growing it out' ever since. Finally, now at 17, she's considering cutting off the remaining blonde. All along, though, she's been using the 'ombre trend' line with me and her friends.

That would look horrible enough to begin with, but on top of that, my hair didn't turn the promised "blonde" color, but rather a ridiculous, brassy orange/red color. Omg. It was terrible. It took forever to grow it out. Looking back, I'm glad my mom didn't do anything. I definitely learned my lesson!

I can't believe they still sell that stuff.

CL people do NOT come in the house. EVER.

Out in the garage only, even if it's a cello bow, which is what this guy came to see.

B-Wavy, I did end up calling Mr. Springs cell phone from my phone inside where nobody could hear me! Great minds think alike!! haha The guy was in process of leaving at that point anyway though.

I hate showers for a few reasons.
1. I'm cold all the time and as soon as I step back from the shower to shave or suds up, I get cold. I can't get cold in the tub since I'm in the water the whole time.
2. I got chronic ear infections when I was a kid and soon learned to be afraid of getting water in my ears. I never get water in my ears while taking a bath.
3. I like bubbles.
4. It's easier to shave my legs sitting down.
5. I'm afraid I'll slip and fall in the shower. It's hard to slip and fall while already sitting in the tub.

Shaving legs, washing hair, detangling hair, sleeping (if it's a morning shower)...

I really only stand up to wash my nether regions and get out.

I took a bath for the first time in probably 6 years a couple weeks ago and maybe if we had a huge tub it would be enjoyable, but I couldn't wait to get up and rinse off under the shower. I couldn't get all of myself under the water so parts of me were cold. If I sunk down my legs would be out and if I sat up to get my legs under the water then my torso was freezing.

I'm sure a really big and deep tub is a lot more enjoyable, but I'd still have to rinse under the shower when I was done.
