i normally avoid coloring my own hair. i figure that is the sort of thing best left to the professionals - it's like washing a dry-clean only shirt at home. i just don't mess with some things. but beauties, money is tight.
last time i used clairol's perfect 10 it was in the comfort of the ted gibson salon and under the watchful eye of celebrity colorist, jason backe. and i was incredibly happy with results (see that here). but, tonite there was no salon, no celebrity stylist, just me and two boxes - light auburn and dark auburn. and i was scared.
i mixed them together, put it on my roots, waited 5 minutes, put it on the rest of my hair and my eyebrows (yes, i know i'm not supposed to do that), waited another 5 minutes, and hopped in the shower.
and after that run-on sentence, i can say that i am once again very pleased! it's fast (you actually are not even supposed to leave it in for a moment over 10 minutes), it's auburn, and it's affordable.
