The two worst things I ever did out of frustration were 1. hacked it ALL off to a very short bob. Which in reality was just a way to force me to straighten it every single day because when its that short and I try to skip a day it goes all q-tip fluffy on me. and 2. I tried to get highlights to hide my gray hair growing in. I've had gray hair since I was a teenager, now i'm 27 and i'm probably 70% gray. I was so SICK of dying it all the time to hide it, so I thought highlights might help hide it easier than dying the roots every month. The lady did these big chunky pieces and I have dark brown hair, and I ended up with ORANGE skunk streaks. It was awful lol
