Sister in Law just telephoned... they are on their way from Carmarthenshire to visit...... and I started chatting on the phone... as you do... and I might be rather bright red!! Cos I chatted for 25 mins and it had already been on 10... and only needed another 5!!

Ho hum.. or it might fall out.... on my way to dry it now.. wish me luck or send me a balaclava, lol!!

Have done that so many times Ann! with varying results ranging from orange to purple. I think when we met I was rather orange, but at the moment am a delicate shade of auburn. Whichever colour it turns out, you will look lovely:-)) XXBC

Should be okay , it would only have a time limit on the H. peroxide and it should not go beyond that time.....BUT, should you need it love.. I will certainly buy you a nice Balaclava.
Which is your favourite colour??

Lol... it isn't a permanent *enhancer* fortunately!!
My main problem is that the lower half of my hair is still very dark, almost black and doesn't take enhancing very well... but the upper bit is... well, multi tones of silver and grey.... so I tried this one for the first time on a recommendation from my sister..... as otherwise it still stays rigidly black and only the top half takes the colour........

Thank you BC *beams happily*

Deanna,,, a red one please, with a white *cuff* around the face... I had one as a child, and loved it, it was sooooo cosy!!

Right... it is dry now...and...... root level is interesting... quite red but not orangey... next level where the darker one was on before is richer darker brown... and then there is the black bit at the bottom... unbudgeable!

As you said, Kitty, interesting, lol!!

I have a hair appointment next week... maybe they can play with it, lol!!

Right must go and get Ba ba working, dishes in dishwasher and clean towels and washing put away.... might even find time to flick a duster, lol!!
