I dyed my hair! Come see! (pics)

Ok, so the other day I decided that I wanted to dye my hair brown. I called around and found a salon that was willing to do it same day. When I showed up for my appointment, they turned me away because I had curly hair! :shock: I wasn't very happy about that. The lady's exact words "We are not trained for curly hair." So then I decided to just do it myself. My first impression was, "I'm going to dye it black tomorrow" ... When I went to work, everyone said they liked it. I haven't decided if I like it yet. I think my curls are in shock at the moment. Check out the pics in my album; under Curly Journey '07.

Thanks!

    It looks great! You have great curls and a really good cut.

    Are you still in deutschland? Where do you get your hair cut (if so)? Just wonder if it's anywhere I used to go. I had THE BEST stylist while I was there, and can't find anyone that does as well since I left 4 yrs ago. :(

    Your color looks really soft and pretty! I like it! I can't believe the hair salon turned you away because you have curly hair. :? At least they were honest with you, though, and didn't do something that might have messed up your hair.
    Hair type is 3a. The best DT I have ever used is the Joico K-Pak Intense Hydrator!

    Thank you ladies! :D

    Brio, I used Loreal Excellence Creme in 4R.

    CurliLocks, Yes, still in Germany. I actually don't have a stylist. I have only been to one salon that actually agreed to do my hair (Sandy's). I wasn't happy with the cut. The cut you see here is from me. If you know of any stylists in the Kaiserslautern area or Rhineland Pfalz, please PM me. Actually I am even willing to go out farther than that (Maybe Frankfurt?).

    Awesome!! It looks so shiny. It won't take long before you get use to it.
    It only took me a few days. Everytime I woke up and saw myself in the mirror, I had forgotten that I had dyed my hair. :)
    You did a nice job!

    Thank you laides, for all of your very nice comments. I think I am leaning towards keeping this color for a little while longer. :D The color is growing on me now. Maybe I was just in shock the first few days. :oops:
