    After my pink ombre (which worked really well and I received loads of compliments), I’ve just gone back to a very dark chocolate brown. Once the pink washed out, these streaks are blonde and …meh. So, the long-term trend colour solution is just that. A trend…but less messy I guess.

      If only I could brush my hair, I wouldn’t have minded so much. Went to the Metallica concert with pink and blue eyelashes too, thanks to the powder residue – not necessarily a bad thing, but as I’m typing this, I’ve again got an intensive hair mask soaking into my follicles.

      If I could afford the upkeep, I’d definitely have gone for Nafisa’s look…

    Mmmm. Think of the health consequences to drawing the chalk into your lungs. You wouldn’t want to repeat this too many times.

    I’ve seen the hair chalk in stores before and wondered about it. It sounds like it might not be worth the trouble. I’ve done the permanent colors before; hot pink for a few months, and then blue for a few months a year later. But they fade out really, really bad.

      My hairdresser refuses to do permanent colour because it is a little out of my budget and I won’t be able to maintain it properly (she’s really awesome). I’m kind of glad I tried it, but definitely not worth the money, and I can do without the painful tangles.
