Dear Garnier Nutrisse Chocolate Caramel Level 3 Permanent Creme Haircolor,

also my hair is not as long & lustrous as this lady's so if we could work on that too that would be aweeeeeesommmmmmmme[photo via drugstore.com]

Dear Garnier Nutrisse Chocolate Caramel Level 3 Permanent Creme Haircolor,

Look. I know part of this is my fault. I should know by now - after having dyed my hair various colors since the age of 12 when I convinced my mom to let me get Clairol GLINTS semi-permanent haircolor to go black "just for Halloween" - that my (naturally brown, rather boring) hair desperately wants to be red. It really does. If the box says "brown," it will turn out red. If the box says "golden," it will turn out red. If the box says "red," "auburn," cherry," or any other term that might actually be red, well shit: I'm gonna look like Julianne Moore, except not luminously beautiful. The only words that will keep my hair from turning out some shade of red are "black" and "peroxide."

So really I blame myself here for the redness that happened when I used you. But the lady on the box looked like she was having so much fun being a Medium Golden Mahogany Brunette that I couldn't resist. Plus, I was bored. At least it's not like that one time I tried to go blue. Pro tip: don't trust crazily-colored dye at Walgreens. Those kids at Hot Topic really do know what they're doing. Let them help you. Manic Panic. Forever.

Anyway, Garnier Nutrisse Chocolate Caramel Level 3 Permanent Creme Haircolor, we're still cool. I don't look crazy, I just don't look as lightened-up as I'd hoped. Next time we have a date, let's make it a three-way with my old flame peroxide.

Love,
Anna

My hair always turns red, too. Blast!

I like to experiment with my hair. Each is a specific event such as event Christmas, Halloween or other events; usually I always change my hair color. I am very self-confident if I do change the color on my hair. Interesting, isn't it?

I love to experiment with changing hair colors. it does not make me ashamed even though I'm not a girl. Thanks for sharing info about the products on this post. I need a lot of information before I buy it.

Aww I wish I had seen this before I tried the dye. I was actually trying to cover some red that had faded and couldn't figure out why it turned a nice brown color like the box at the roots and didn't appear to take anywhere else.

I also used this hair dye. And instead of turning any color near the color on the box, my hair is now a nice shade of burgundy...not quite what I was expecting.
