That didn't turn out like I hoped....

Yesterday, a very wonderful friend came over to help me dye my hair.  I was using a rather bright dye, and wanted to make sure that I covered it all.

We took my box of L'oreal Excellece Creme and we did my hair.

The timer went off....

And then I spent at least five minutes trying to get water to come out of the shower.

I resorted to dumping bucket of water over my head while the Spousal Equivalent fixed the shower....

It was comical.  I'm shouting from the bathroom for help.  He's got tools and is taking apart the shower head while I'm dumping water on my head.  the dog's barking, and trying to get in the tub.  She then tried to drink the dye-colored water... which made of toss her out of the tub...

it was chaos!

Thanks to the delay in rinsing, the effect is a bit darker than I anticipated....

But it's nice!

And dumping buckets of water over your head..... not the most effective way to rinse.

It'll fade out closer to the color you want, especially if it's a red. Use water as hot as you can stand for the next couple washes. After that to maintain, use cooler water and rinse with cold if you can! It'll still fade some but hopefully not as fast.
