Okay. So, my advice is to never read something while lightening your hair. I tried to hide my dark roots and left the lightener on for a bit longer than I should have. It hadn’t worked too well last time I used it, so I gave it a little more time and I was reading scriptures (of all things!) while I waited. When I washed out my hair, I had overdone it! So, my friend down the street (a hair dresser) will fix it for me, but she can’t get to me for 1 ½ weeks. So, I will be a platinum blonde, on top, for a little while!
