I ought to preface this by saying that I have, 1. a hairdresser phobia, 2. next to no cash and 3. naturally mousy brown hair.
I should also add that there’s *no way* I will let Kitty colour her own hair. The minute she fancies more blonde, we’re off the hairdressers.
But here’s how I mess around with mine…
- Mr Fish cuts the ends straight across for me every now and then; I chop in some layers at the front with my craft scissors
- Every month, I dye the roots a Dark Blonde by Schwarzkopf (£1 from Poundland and covers the greys like a charm)
- A couple of times a year, I lighten the ends with a box of chemist-bought bleach lightener, then tone out and lift the resulting hideous brass by covering the lot with Schwarzkopf Colour Mask in Pearl Blonde
I style it on jumbo hot rollers I spotted at our local dump or let it dry naturally for a messy, scrunchy look. My goodness, could I be any cheaper to run?
But hey: this way there are more pennies left for enamel dots…
