Ruby Rush

So it was that time, time to change my hair. Yes part of the reason I wanted to go dark red is I feel in a dark place, but luckily, it is like September in ONE week and I always go fall red for fall, and I consider September 1st to be the beginning of the fall season so it works out in the end. So I decided on Feria's R68 Ruby Rush. It is a true auburn red. SO, since I have nothing else to talk about, since today is grocery shopping and sandwich night, I decided to take pictures and walk you through my reveal of my new Fall Red.

Yeah I am that blank on writing for my blog today! LOL! So, here I am with the color sitting in my hair. My Mom threw the towel out because it she said it looked like it was covered in blood this time.

Then I went to take a shower, so no we skip that part. I was bloody in there for like 45 minutes. The water would just NOT run clear this time. And when you do these reds you get rinsing shampoo and canditioner, but it was so stubborn, my back was actually killing me by the time I got out. I wrapped it in a towel to get most of the moisture out and this is what it looked like fresh from the towel, uncombed.

This was me just letting it air dry. I thought it was funny that the pillow looks like it almost matches my hair.

This is my new hair, dry, but uncombed.

Then I combed it and this is my hair, air dryed, which is what I normally do. My hair loves to do a flip thing on one side, and it is never the same side, so that is aggravating. I'd love it, if it did it on both sides! But I'd have to like, actually take out a curling iron to make both sides do that...I don't WORK on my hair, I am LOW maintenance, except for color!

And a close-up of the final color, which I love!! Ruuubbbbyyy Ruuussshhh!

SO that is it kiddies, Wendy has gone Ruby for now. Maybe it will be a tad darker when I do it next month, since I went from really faded for two months to this, so next time it could be darker which suits me just fine. Bring on the darkness.

I need my hair done in the worst possible way. Unfortunately I get mine foiled and refuse to try this on my own. I am horrible when it comes to hair up-keep. It's been since April that I've had ANYTHING done.

Jessica♥ said...

I love it!
Coloring hair is my thing too. I don't really do anything else.
I used to get serious highlights and now I just dye it.
I want to see you in a cherry brown! =]

LadyStyx said...

I'm the same way, very low maintenance on the hair with the exception of color (gotta keep those metallic highlights hidden ya know). I like that color on you. Wish I could get away with shades of red like that. Unfortunately they make me look sickly.

I used to dye my hair red. Sometimes I think I want to be spunky again. But I have too much gray (went gray at 18). Better to stick with blonde. It hides the gray much better. I am way too young to be old.

Love the color. Thanks for the walk through. The first one looked like you had major head trauma (like you were scalped). heehee- don't blame your mom for throwing away the towel.

Oh, and if you had hot water the whole 45 minutes you were rinsing I am totally jealous. I get about 20 minutes and then I get an ice shower.

OKAY...BEAUTIFUL color. I love it. Congrats. Hope it is making you feel soooo good. You deserve it. Have been down and out. Should be back now with kids in school. hugs.

TeeTee said...

Oh my gosh, it looks amazing!

Lee said...

That's what my color was.
Until freaking LOREAL made a HORRIBLE dye.
It's STILL coming out.
So now my hair is almost like a dull brown.
Makes me angry.

YOUR hair looks great.

CaJoh said...

Isn't Ruby Rush the name of a character from The Fifth Element…

I never dyed my hair, though now that it is going Grey I may look for a good red which matches my former hair color.
