You Say Tomato, I Say Thank You

So, in the days since I posted that I had green hair from swimming, I’ve imagined that you’ve spent many sleepless nights wondering how I’ve coped with my follicle foible. (Have I ever told you alliterations are a gargantuan guilty pleasure for gojulesgo?)

Well, I gave Mr. Heinz another go, this time on dry hair for a longer period (almost a full hour), and that, combined with a fresh dose of Clairol’s finest, seems to have done the trick.

I’m so overjoyed. My emotions, coupled with the extreme guilty pleasure pride I take in being a bottled blonde, have led me to celebrate the only way I know how.

With Hanson.

P.S. – Deb Bryan, I think we’re even now. πŸ˜‰

  1. Nothing like a good color job to fix your problems! I seriously need a trim up but I am currently lacking time and money. So I freshened up my color with some Loreal and now everyone thinks I got a haircut! Have a great day and enjoy your blondeness!

    1. Thank you!! I know exactly where you’re coming from – I haven’t gotten a proper haircut in I don’t even want to say how long. The really sad thing is I spend more (so, so much more) on my dog’s grooming than I do on my own hair. I like to give him a hard time about it, but he’s usually too busy staring in the mirror to pay any attention.

  2. You look Mah-ve-lusssss, dahlink. Glad you could correct the swimming greenies…I missed the post about the green hair when WordPress deleted all my subscriptions. Now you show up 3 times on my list. I’ll try not to comment on all three, but I’m forgetful.

    I have completely white hair (at least the part I can see, I understand my hair is a little darker in the back). I swim almost every day, so I am constantly on the lookout for the green tint. I started going gray at 16…it was not fun, but I spent many years as a blonde, too.

    1. Thank you!! Have you found any other remedies for the green tint?? The Ultra Swim shampoo didn’t work AT ALL, but I remember it working for me as a kid (I was a blonde, but my hair turned light brown as I got older, which is why I dye it now)!

      1. Yes, there was a product that I used once, that I got at a beauty supply place – can’t remember the name of it, but it was a color corrector. Let me think about it….I’ll get back to you with that name.

        Our pool does not use chlorine, but other chemicals (I believe they said bromide and something else). So I don’t really have to worry about the green tint.

  3. Gorgeous! Love the moustache look, too…va va va voom! πŸ˜‰

    I have finally grown my hair out from a super short cut and bad dye job I got last year. It was the kind of spur of the moment cut and color where you like it for about one day, then cry because you had eight inches chopped off and the bright red streaks don’t look so great in natural light. Finally, it’s long again and I am happier with it. I guess I wasn’t ready for the “mommy cut” after all. Now all I have to do is get the guts to color it again!

    1. Why thank you very much! πŸ™‚ I am always looking for excuses to play with the iMovie application on my computer – little did I know that putting my Hanson CD into my iTunes last year would pay off, LOL!

      I admire your bravery with the cut and color! I know exactly what you mean about liking it for the first day and then ending up in tears! I went short 10 years ago, and it took me a LOT longer than 1 year to grow it out! I went totally brunette last year, and I liked it, but I just can’t shake the feeling that I’ll always be a blonde at heart!

        1. Ha! You crack me up! Then, what’s my excuse?! I like using exclamation points, too! πŸ˜‰

          I used to be a blonde once upon at time…I’ve tried to go back to blonde many times in the past, but get too lazy keeping up with it. So now I’m slowly making my way back to my natural dark mousy brown. Still have to wait for the reddish blonde to grow out (looks like kool-aid in the sunlight) Sigh.

  4. Finally, no more sleepless nights! No more of my wife getting irritated because I keep muttering “Is her hair better? It’s not still green is it? Is there something I could have done?”

    1. It was the concern of my legion of followers that led me to take speedy action. You can thank me later, or now, by sending an Edible Arrangement (and not just the fruit kind, the chocolate-covered fruit kind. Nobody likes a cheapskate).

    1. ha ha ha ha ha I love that you went back to these posts. You’re my hero. Thank you!

      The worst part is, I’ve upgraded to gone into debt for a professional dye job these days, which means I’m hesitant to even GO in the pool (or at least under the water) this summer.
