I Have Orange Hair

Real Estate Technology with Rentec Direct

It's true and it's my own fault.  Yesterday I thought I'd spice up my hair by coloring it with henna I bought in a box from our local herb shop.  It's an all-natural product so I figured it would render more "natural" looking results.  Holy Henna!  I look like a pumpkin.  


This is not the first time I've taken matters into my own hands only to find that a professional would have been the best way to go.  My DIY spirit/impatient manners spun me a tale of "just get 'er done...it will be fine!"  Aye yi yi!  

Thank goodness my customers reach me by phone at Rentec Direct (an unknown benefit when I decided to work in a web-based property management industry!)  And thank goodness my customers know to turn to a professional support team when they need help rather than buy it "in a box".   


Although this is not an April Fool's joke ... I did this to myself in March... I'd love to hear how your DIY spunk played a joke on you.   And pictures sure do make it extra fun!

 Janell, you are funny!  I think you look just fine! But, if you don't like it...you can always change the look!  My daughter has been saying for the last few months, she wants to dye her hair, and I'm like --- ok I can take you to get it done professionally.  Now, with the longer days, her bright blonde streaks are coming back on their own..(yes she got her hair from dad-- not me!)

I am sure I have a story to share about self but I will have to think a little longer about that. (haha)  But this week I have a friend, who is by the way a hair specialist..hint hint =) who shared her experience about trying to save money by painting her own house with her husband.  She said what a horrible experience it was! They didn't know how much time and energy it would take and how they barely made it through the process and remained married.  By the way your hair doesn't look bad my friend you are beautiful!!

I know I have a story somewhere but I know better than to trust my hair to me!! I actually like the color!

 Quick Sonja!  Make her an appointment or she may take matters into her own hands!  :)  I may need your friend's phone number, Kathryn.  And thank you Kathy!  I will wait to hear back on a good personal story from you.

Many, many years ago I had a similar experience, only mine came out blue. Never touched the "box" stuff again.  Professional help all the way, it's the only way to go.
