I did it! I dyed it red today. Updated with curly pics.

I have a customer that has a test salon in their office. They offered to dye my hair red for me, and they evaluate the color in exchange for free color service. So I finally decided to take the plunge for my dream color. I love it! Pics are in my fotki under the album "RED."

Definitely coloring hair imparts a sheen from the gloss that's in the color. Framesi dyes seem to be very gentle. My hair looks healthier after the color than before, and it feels baby soft. Hopefully that will last. Regardless, it is sooooooo much fun being a redhead!!

    Like everyone else says, you really could be a natural redhead. It looks fabulous on you! I've always wanted a similar color but don't have the proper coloring to carry it off ... you definitely do.

    Wow--that color is gorgeous on you! Your hair looks great both straight and curly (although I like the curls best, of course)! Don't know what your color was prior to coloring, but I would never have guessed that the red/gold is not natural. Enjoy it! :D

    It looks great! I def. like you better as a curly; straight hair makes you look much more serious.

    Ha! That's funny! Then I'll need to straighten more often for work, because I feel like no one ever takes me seriously at work :)

    But life has been more charmed as a redhead. A gentleman hit me in the parking lot and we decided to called the cops for an accident report. I realized that my registration card and my insurance cards were both expired. I hadn't put the updated ones in my car. I just tossed my hair around and apologized for not having the right paperwork, and the officer said it was no problem. Phew!

    I'm definitely having lots of fun with this color!! Thanks for all of the nice compliments!

    On your hair album you had a pic of a hairband but not a J one. Is it the type that has elastic at the back? If so where did you get it? By the way - your hair is awesome!
