Its Orange?!

So even though I have gone back and forth on whether or not to color my hair I have decided that I WILL color my hair every six months. I lasted colored my hair in September so its March which mean it’s time to color my hair. I went to the local store to get two boxes of Dark and Lovely Honey Blonde color. To my surprise they were sold out. The only color that they had was Light Golden Blonde so I’m thinking sure why not it’s just a little bit lighter plus I don’t feel like going to another store so whatever. I get my two boxes checked out went home and colored my hair. So I have did nothing out of the ordinary I take my shower cap off to rinse the color out and I’m like WOW!! That is so much brighter than what I’m use to I wish I would have taken a picture of that it looked like.
The morning after I’m getting ready and my daughter comes into the my closet to let me know she has let the dogs out, brushed teeth, etc and is ready for me to do her hair. She walks out of my closet then comes back in and has a puzzled look on her face and says, “Mommy your hair is lighter brown!” I’m like yeah it is isn’t it. I’m trying to play along just to see how the conversation is going go. She is still looking at me with this puzzled look on her face and the she says, “it’s Orange!” At this point I couldn’t help but laugh, and say it is very bright. So I’m about to drop her off at school and the whole time while we are in the car she is staring at me and finally she asks me Mommy why would you color your hair orange. It’s orange. Then I have to tell her that yes it very bright and it didn’t come out quite the color that I wanted but it will be alright.
After I drop my daughter off at school I scoot on over to work. At first no one notices my hair and I’m not going to announce that I have colored my hair. The coworker that I’m closes to so much that we can pretty much tell each other like it is without worrying about someone getting offended. She was like whoa are you trying to look like me now?! I tell her the story of getting the color and not thinking that it wouldn’t be all that different. She was like so when are you doing to fix it. I told that I’m not color my hair again for another six months because it is very damaging, and I will just have to live with it. I had my camera handy this time and I had my coworker take some pictures of me hair. I must admit that my hair is rather orangey.
