Going into the playoffs, I wanted to do something special to support the Caps. Being that I'm a woman, I can't exactly grow a beard and my job would not allow a mohawk (besides, I don't have the guts for that). So what else is there to do? Dye my hair.
I haven't dyed my hair since high school, when I used to dye it light brown on a regular basis. I opted for a semi-permanent color since I didn't want to have to do the whole growing it out two-toned thing - semi-permanents last through about 28 shampoos. Today, I entered the CVS across the street from my office with a purpose. In the hair color aisle, I came to two choices. I couldn't decide which one to pick. So what is a Caps girl to do? Ask her Twitter followers of course.
I tweeted this photo from the aisle in the CVS:
My followers overwhelmingly selected the left color, "Rosewood." So I bought it. And got home tonight and got ready for the red. I went from my natural dark brown:
And after what looked like a bloodbath in my shower, ended up auburn:
Now since this lasts through 28 shampoos, I hope I'll have to recolor it before the Caps are done. How are you going to rock the red in the playoffs, Caps fans?
