So what will this blog be about?

Whatever I feel like writing about at the moment! Hence the "ramblings" part of the title :).

Today I feel like writing about hair dye. I just dyed my hair yesterday, and it is beautiful! It had been getting a little too normal-looking for my tastes. Did you know that Special Effects dyes are vegan and cruelty-free? Years ago, I purchased this hair dye at local record shops, but none seem to carry the full line of colors anymore. VeganEssentials carries a few colors: http://www.veganessentials.com/catalog/special-effects-punk-hair-dye--new-colors.htm , but my favorite place to order it online is: http://www.amphigory.com/special_effects_hairdye.html . Click on any of the colors to see lots of photos people have sent in of their hair after dying! How cool is that?

Here's my pretty hair (sorry for the crappy pics!).


I used Burgundy Wine in my bangs, leaving a few strands of blond in the front, as well.

Here you can see the back:


I mostly used Pimpin' Purple, but ran out towards the end and had to add a little Blue Velvet to cover the rest.

Inspired? Then go order some dye and support a vegan product while you're at it!

Awesome hair! I just noticed you are a pre school teacher. What will the little ones say about it? I bet they will love it!

Thanks for visiting, VF! The kids love my hair - a lot of them have told their parents they want to dye their hair, too! My hair was red and orange a few months ago and they all started calling me "Teacher Fire" isn't that cute?

Teacher Fire is awesome! How long will the color last?

The nice thing about semi-permanent dye is that it slowly fades after a few months (quicker if you're a daily hair-washer) so you don't have to stick with any color too long if you don't want to.
