We're Gonna Need a Bigger Boat

Today, I am frantically rushing around doing the last minute little things to get us ready for our NYC trip. (SO SO very excited) Naturally, I thought NOW is a good time to dye my hair! I opted for the new Olia formula by Garnier (4.0 dark brown). My goal was just to cover up my red streak & the silver strands that seem to be everywhere lately.

Speaking of which WHY are there so many different kinds of hair dye? It took me forever to make a choice, because I can never make a choice when I don't know the product. Does this happen to anyone else? I get so overwhelmed when I go to buy a new toothbrush, deodorant, or what not. They never have what I usually use & then I have to find something else but they have way too many options. Sometimes I just look for a few minutes, turn & walk right back out of the aisle without a thing.

Anyway, I finally made a choice, grabbed a box & went on my way. It was only when I was in the middle of getting the job done, that I realized I needed maybe 3 boxes instead of my one. I managed to slather the not enough dye around & then I was just hoping for the best. Considering I was just going with my natural colour give or take a slight shade difference, I was pretty sure it would work itself out in the end.

The Olia was around $15 and if I need three of them well it just makes no sense for me to attempt to save money by doing it at home. Next time I need my hair dyed I will just go back to Ranew Salon & my trusty, dependable hair stylist. This worked really well in a pinch though, I wanted the silver hair covered for our trip, & it is.

If you are ever in Newport, RI & you need a beauty treatment I highly reccomend Ranew Salon. They are amazing and always give their clients the star treatment. I am going to miss them when we move this summer.

As for my hair it came out all one shade YAY!
