A DYI episode

I use to get my hair cut every 7 weeks and colored every 14 weeks and highlighted every 21 weeks.  Now I'm into being cheap (thanks to the economy :) and I have become a DYI in the hair dye department.   I have my hairdresser highlight my hair 2 times a year - that way when I color it myself it isn't one dimensional. 

It was time - my hair is naturally almost black (it keeps getting darker as I get older - minus the grey hairs), so after a summer of bleach out - proof we had SOME sunshine - it was time because the grow out line was about 2 inches!
Monday night I donned my ol' sweatshirt and pulled out my favorite box of Loreal haircolor........
.........and 45 min. later it looked like this! This is the just blown dry version.

With my coupon I got my box o'color for $5 - so I think I just saved about $70!

Looks great, Jan. Every time I did it with a box, it was a little purple. :) That is some serious savings!!!!

I'm impressed, but still trying to figure out what DYI stands for...

Thank you "anonymous" for pointing out my faux pas - It should be a DIY not a DYI! Obviously working too much these days!!
