Josiah & Lauren 17: Proud parents to Lauren's hat...and Bella

Recommended Posts

Eponine

I am loving the linguistics discussion! I just wanted to add that John McWhorter's Lexicon Valley podcast has had some excellent and fascinating discussions of dialects, language registers, language evolution, and AAVE (including about its internal grammar rules). I highly recommend it if you are interested in things like this! Just be aware that he's a big fan of musical theater :dance:

Lauren is assuring us she did not copy Jinger  go blonde but that her hair looked brassy ( did it? I thought she had lovely hair) and her aunt fixed it with a balayage and it’s the filter that makes it look blonde.

She copied Jinger and went blonde.

and why not? it is not as if she had a half a dozen stylish role models live with her/near by that she could get some inspiration from. I guess by now she is aware of what her life is going to be, and if blond makes her feel a bit better - why not?  Reminds me of Dolly Partons Hard Christmas Candy...

She can do what she wants of course.  I guess as a mousy fair haired person who’s highlighted my hair all my adult life to make it look better I really don’t understand why someone with luscious dark locks like Lauren would want the hassle of going blonde.

I don't see the big deal with her dying her hair even if she did see Jinger with hers and decided she wanted hers blonde too. 

I have went blonde, dark and back again a few times. I am not dying my hair just now due to a hair dresser ruining it the last time it was dyed

I too am a mousy fair haired person who's been dying their hair (mine's red) for years, and I would kill to have Lauren's natural dark hair.

Thanks for the reminder to color my hair tomorrow! (Naturtint "Terracotta Blond," which oddly, is a red shade that makes my mousy brown plus grey into a warm auburn.)

My best friend has been going progressively blonder and has a cute shoulder length cut and I think all the time about chopping mine and dying my brown hair blonde because of how cute it looks on her. 

My MIL does my hair though and is hesitant about going lighter because I already have kind of crappy frizzy hair and also she thinks blonde will wash me out (and she's 100% right, I've done it before and it's not super complimentary) so the prospect of having to actually PAY to get it done is keeping me long and brown.

As a teenager and older, I dyed my hair red, went blonde, went back to my normal brown and then back to red. AFter my son was born, which while I was pregnant I didn't dye my hair at all, I went red and noticed my scalp itched. Well fast forward 20+ years. I am allergic to hair dye. I not only itch but in some cases in the past, I have gotten weeping blisters. The only colors I can use are shades of very light blonde. I have brown hair and a ton of gray and I"m not ready to go grey. I don't even think I can use a gray rinse on my hair because of the allergy. A couple of months ago I tried strawberry blonde and nope..... redness, itching, not blisters but my face swelled up and my eyes too. So its back to blonde. I so want Lucille Ball red hair.

Have you tried different brands?  I had the same with the scalp itch and oozing blisters with L'Oreal, but not with others.  For me it wasn't color specific though.

That’s such a pity. I have sensitive skin generally and my scalp can react to certain products. I used to have my hair done with foils but now there is more grey I use a home colour- I use the John Frieda one and it’s the only one that doesn't make my scalp itchy and the colour looks really natural.

I've tried every brand out there. I even ordered a "natural" color on the Internet. Mine seems to be color related.

Maybe I could try that brand. I would probably just do a light, light red and nothing darker. I can live with some swelling and itching but not the blisters. Maybe I need to try a "swankier" brand?

I don’t know how much John Frieda is in the US- I just bought some today as there was a special offer- 2 for £10 ( which I think is about $12) which is half the usual price.

I have a friend who has a very similar problem and she's has good results with henna. Turns her hair a nice red and doesn't give her blisters. Maybe that's an option? Unless that's what the natural color that you tried was... in that case, this is a very useless suggestion.

That's what Lucy used.

 

Speaking of hair - DAE remember Halsa shampoo?  I have the jingle going through my head right now.  They had different types depending on your color?

I haven't tried henna but I heard it is super messy. I'm kind of frightened by it. 

OH I also add this product to the dye called Care and Comfort that I get at a beauty supply store. It helps with the itching. I started using 6 packets and now am down to only using 2.

Apparently you’re not supposed to use henna on previously colored hair. Has anyone tried it?

I wanted the red heads curly hair SO BADLY back then.

And as a girl with natural auburn hair I used 'ginger to ignite the fire of red!"  

And apparently I am in a time machine as the jingle for Love's Baby Soft is now on a loop in my head.  Still one of my favorite scents in the world.

I have vague memories of this shampoo, I would have been 14/15 in 1985, but my TV viewing was strictly monitored by my controlling parents., so my 80's tv commercial knowledge is sketchy at best. As for the Love's Baby Soft, it is also one of my favorite scents, I favor powdery scents to this day and I claim, Love's Baby Soft, as the reason.

I started dying my own hair after I asked a hairdresser for a "slight copper tint" in my mousy (with some natural red in there if I go lighter) and ended up with bright "orange prison suit"

To get rid of that they bleached it blonde Twice and then put some light brown it and told me to be really careful with shampoo and hairdryers or else it could fall out...

Anyways after some years i found a copper that actually looks natural - people don't think it's dyed.

It looks really dark first but after a couple of washes it looks like this:

(though the new version looks a bit darker, still good but I'm itching to try something else again; a girl in school had that beautiful dark red with a tinge of neon pink - but that's not available anymore as well... Open to suggestions!)
