Don't Dye!

Man! This is just not my week for sanity! I'm having little freak out sessions all the time! Here's whats going on today:

I decided I needed a change. I've been feeling a little blah because I just am having the hardest time losing this baby weight and I feel pukey. So I decided I was going to dye my hair. Not a huge change because I didn't want the upkeep, I just wanted to dye it a dark red. So I did that tonight.

Don't freak out and hope for a picture, it barely looks any different at ALL. Poo. Really honest, you can't tell unless the light hits it just right. Double poo.

So not only am I disappointed about the turn out, I'm also freaking out a little. You see, they put in the directions that you should do a skin test thing, to make sure you don't have a reaction to the hair dye. I haven't dyed my hair in about 10 years, but I've dyed it before and not actually DIED, so we're all good right? Besides I have absolutely ZERO patience to wait 48 hours before I actually do it, if I want it done I'm going to do it RIGHT NOW. And like I said, I did.

But now I feel a little sick. And like my face is swelling and like my head is crushing in on my brain. I really do! I swear I'm not exaggerating, there are serious sweat beads on my upper lip!

I really hope I don't dye--I mean DIE!

You know what else? Hair dye stinks really bad. Its making me feel sick. I mean sickER than I already do...

UPDATE: I did not die in the night, although when I was woken at 1am and rolled over to look at the clock and the numbers were all fuzzy I seriously thought "I'M GOING BLIND BECAUSE OF THE HAIR DYE!!!" Yes I need help.


  1. I think you're overreacting. You are not going to die. You may be paralyzed for the rest of your life, but die?

  2. I think if you haven't died yet you are good!
    Drink chocolate milk?

  3. Your SKULL is crushing in?

    Good thing you're not melodramatic. :)

    I love you!

  4. You'll probably be just fine. Just don't do a google search about it and get yourself more freaked out over the highly unlikely (which always the FIRST thing I do and feeds my sense of panic).

  5. You did what?!?!?! That's what happens for trying to change your perfectly great and beautiful hair...it's mad at you;)

    Hope you feel better today!! Call you later:)

  6. May I suggest that you take a break from the caffeine and schedule a trip to a spa?

    I have to say, I had a similar experience with hair dye not looking like anything, and it was such a terribly hard process, but sooo not worth it because I looked exactly the same after. Always vowed to leave the hair coloring to professionals from then on. Of course, I've never had my hair colored since.

    Anyway, seriously treat yourself to a massage and pedicure. And maybe some professional hair color. :)

  7. So funny..... I think you'll make it.

  8. Sorry, don't mean to take your "dyeing" lightly, BUT that had me giggling.
    I never wait and test things out either...kindred spirits there. When I want to do something, I WANT IT NOW.

    oh wait, I hope you are still alive to read this, or aren't blind........
    (I am at the library right now, grrrr)

  9. Ha ha! Glad you are okay. This totally reminded me the scene in Napolian Dynomite where Predro cuts off his hair...


I'm mysteriously judging whether or not you're going to comment or not...you know you want to.
