     I haven't dyed my hair for over a year now, so I guess it's official now: I have stopped dying my hair! I begun dying hair when I was about 16 years old and went through all the possible shades from Extra Ultra Blonde to Ebony. The last time I dyed my hair, was in late...

    ...but I'll Start Again If the Mood Strikes Me!

    It's been a year and a half since the last time I dyed my hair. It's really long so the ends are still lighter because of the old dye, but my roots are my natural boring dirty blonde color. I've always loved dying my hair red, and if I had a lot of extra money laying...
