My Hair Story - Blonde to Auburn

   Before:                                          After:

I have wanted to dye my hair a ginger-auburn colour for a very long time.  Pinterest only added to that desire and my hair board started to be taken over by pictures of Emma Stone and other beautiful redheads.  My roommates started to notice of course and Project Ginger was born.  I had to wait until after my grad photos were taken (scary) before a took the plunge just in case.  And I wasn't paying a ton of money at a salon so I went for box dye.

This is a picture of how my hair looked before, it was too dark when we started by hair to get a good picture of it so I am including this one in here for an idea.

Here is a picture of my lovely day-old hair before we started (told you the picture looks funny).

I bought this hair dye at Shopper's Drug Mart for $12 I believe, only to go Target yesterday and see it for $7... so now I know where to get my next box!
The colour is 641 Light Natural Copper, I only needed one box but you might need two if your hair is extra long.  I didn't do anything else to my hair before I applied the box dye.  My hair did have a slight ombre to my hair but the dye covered it up completely.

My roommate applied the dye for me all over my head and I left it in for approximately 30 minutes.  As we were applying it it darkened from a white to a purple.. it terrified me.  I had to stop looking at in in the mirror once the dye was in because it changed colour again and was SO ORANGE.

Overall I am so happy with it and I've gotten so many compliments!  Very glad I finally did it and will keep it this way for a while I think.
