DIY hair dye

Pedar and I are working hard to pay off our credit debt, again. Yes, it has inched back up since we moved into our new house. So, being a team player and an avid DIYer, I am going to back to my roots, and doing my hair by myself. It has been about a year or so since I've played beauty parlor at my house. I couldn't remember what box I used to buy, so I went to Rite Aid and grabbed the one that looked the least messy, poured myself a glass of courage, and went into the bathroom.
It went on easy enough. I made a little bit of a mess. Some drips fell on our white bathroom cabinet, darnit! I'll have to touch that up with some paint. I'm not sure I left it on long enough, there are still quite a few strands of white that were not covered. But, for the most part, my highlights that were resembling straw look better, and the outgrowth from the last time I had my hair dyed in early May, is covered. I like it! Next time I am going to ask for some help from a beauty supply store.
So, for less than $12 and being able to come home from work, make dinner, go for a walk with boys and dog, play with rainbow looms and then sneak into my bathroom and take care of my hair before bed = DIY hair dye is absolutely priceless.
We have almost been in our house a year (8/6) and our house to-do list is still very large. I made a list recently and stuck it to the fridge because that seems to be the only way to remain focused to get things done!
