Yep, I'm getting me some weave. That's right, telling it like it is. Here's why- I am having a hair mid-life crisis. I used to have long, thick, luscious hair and it seemed like the day I turned 30, it all fell out and got limp on me. My hair has not been growing, it's dry, and it's thin. Day before Mother's day, I decided I wanted to get a new, fresh look for my day. I decided to get some color and highlights and a fresh trim. The color I was going for was brown with soft honey colored highlights. I had a picture of Jessica Alba that showed exactly what I wanted. This turned out to be disaster #1. I literally spent nine hours at the salon because the lady that did my hair had probably never colored hair in her life. My hair went from strawberry red, to Burgundy red, to blond, and finally, a color that I'm not sure what to call. Blondish-red? Either way, it was the exact color of Keysha's color to the right.
Cute, but I'm not a sexy R&B singer. I'm a lawyer, law professor, mother. Hello.
After that horrible nine hour three different color experience, the "stylist" finally just put a rinse in my hair that made my color a dark chestnut brown. So much for the new look. My hair was dark brown before. Lovely.
One month and two more colors and highlights later, my hair is finally close to what I wanted. I went to another stylist and she fixed the base color and gave me my honey highlights, but they were too thick. She promised me she could fix the chunks of honey with no problem. She ended up covering them all back up and left me with maybe five honey strands on my head. Disaster #2.
I'm so fed up with my hair and since it's probably going to fall out from all this color anyway, I'm going buy me some hair, get it in the color I want, and going to have it put in my head. I'm going to have that long honey color look I was going for.
So ladies, what kind of hair do you recommend I buy??
