    Because you all know how much I love engagement ring and I am due to post an engagement ring picture. I have decided I want a ring that looks like this:

    I have decided I don't want a diamond.

    Oh I also like this:

    So guys, I've posted before about wanting to go blonde. I was going to buy a box and asked a lady at Ulta for help and she was zero help.
    I'm considering going to Sally Beauty Supply and seeking the assistance of a gay man. But there's a possibility there will be no gay man to help me and that will be unfortunate. (The women who work there are always too busy gossiping between themselves to help me...)

    My mom won a gift card to a salon a while back and she offered to let me have it and let the salon do my hair - but I don't feel right about it (although I don't think she will EVER go. I've been to the salon before and they did my hair and makeup gratis for a station event and, as my mother called it, "that place that did your makeup that made you look like a *****." The girl who did my hair was GREAT and the makeup artist a total joy to talk makeup with, but yes, I looked like I might have been going hooking.) and I'm not even sure her gift card will cover having my hair bleached there anyway. Not to mention the last time a professional coloured my hair I hated it, but 99% of the time I've coloured my own hair, it's been fine. But I've never bleached before either.

    Anybody have thoughts? Seek the assistance of a gay man at Sally's and if that fails come up with a Plan B?

    I think I'm gonna try it this weekend! I'm kind of conflicted. I used to dye my hair all the time, but now it's been a really long time since I have and I get a lot of compliments on my natural color... but I'm just bored with it? I'll try the henna on a small section and see if I like it before doing my whole head.

    Anyone have any comment on Burt's Bees products? Just bought Pearanormal Activity shampoo and conditioner. It says organic and natural on it but I believe it still has some sulfates, and such. Just wondering if its a good one or not. Just used it, but my hairs still wet so we'll see what happens. I haven't used sulfate free for a month or so now. I don't really know why, I just stopped. I was using apple pectin shampoo and my scalp was super itchy so I grabbed some of this güd stuff (by Burts Bees) at target today. Any reviews??

    I use Burt's bees when I get extra dirty/gross hair or want it to smell extra nice.

    It's ok...doesn't seem much different than regular "natural" shampoos. I wouldn't recommend it but it hasn't caused me any problems.

    If I was going to color my hair I don't think I would have the guts to do it myself lol ... I would have a (good) stylist do it. I would be too afraid I would screw it up lol

    My biggest hesitation is that I have NO idea what colour it's going to make my hair. I would like something like this:
    [​IMG]

    But I am scared it will turn into this:

    Which I do not want. lol.

    WTA Woah sorry huge pics. I stole them off google images.

    Yeah I'm not really sure how mine will turn out either which is scary lol. My hair is already a sort of.... brassy/reddish/brownish color so I don't think it'll be RED. But I have no clue what will happen lol.

    Unless your hair is bleached or a very light blonde it shouldn't turn orange...and I think if it does you can reapply the henna to darken it, and then it will wash out a coppery color instead of ORANGE

    I never did it though so idk for sure

    I got my ears pierced about a month ago. Can I switch earrings? I know they say at least 6 weeks, but these earrings seem REALLY tight to me and they hurt if I accodently bump/knock them with my hand or something. They aren't infected, and they don't hurt all the time by any means, but I feel like I would benefit from earrings that aren't so tight on my ear. Or is it normal for them to still be sensitive after a month??

    ETA: I got them done at Claire's and I feel like these earrings are intended for kids with much smaller ears than mine.

    I went and bought my henna tonight and the lady assured me I'd get a nice rich "Irish Setter" colour...

    How'd yours go, Southpaw, or have you done it yeT?

    Just waiting for my friend to get off work so we can start! It's gonna be a late night lol. I did my strand test though, only left it on for about 2 hours and I'm thinking I'll leave it on my head for much longer because I don't see too much difference! Which I suppose is better than being horrified at the change lol.

    Leave it on as long as you feel comfortable. I usually give my treatments about six hours. Some people let it sit overnight. The longer you go, the more benefit/richness in colour it can have on your hair.

    I want to henna my hair, too, but it's so short right now it feels pointless.

    Gaaaaaah. I want to henna my hair so bad.

    But looking at all the pictures on the other thread, I dunno if I could get henna to go as bright as I want it to. And I'm scared I'll lose the red forever if I screw it up.

    Boooo.
    *googles more henna*

    OMG so excited for henna pics! I want to do mine (in the far off future) for the health benefits. I just recently had my hair ombréd so I'm not going to change it anytime soon.

    Did they put studs in? I'm guessing since it was Claire's they did and that's not good. If you can, I would go somewhere and see if they can switch it out for a captive bead ring. It shouldn't hurt if you knock into it at this point... mine actually never hurt if I remember right, maybe a bit right after I had it done but I could clean them starting that night and they didn't hurt.
    The studs are usually short and the butterfly backs on earrings can pinch really tightly (and trap/push bacteria into the piercing) so they're really not recommended.

    Switch them if you can but I wouldn't switch 'em for another butterfly back until it's totally healed.
