It's been almost 10 years since I started coloring my hair. I was 18 and a senior in high school. I knew my hair was getting darker, so I started dying it blond. The cost and maintenance of the blond has gotten old. Friday I did what any resourceful mother would do. I sent my husband to Wal-Mart with the 4 kids and a list, while I got my hair cut and colored. I had them dye my hair to match my roots. I must admit it has been a bit of a shock, but I'm getting used to it and I like it. I never believed that blonds have more fun, I guess now I'll find out.
