New hair

I didn't go to the pool for several weeks last time I colored my hair because I was worried about ruining the color. It didn't matter much because at that time, I was only going once a week and swimming for about half an hour each time. Now I'm going 2-3 times a week, and I like to stay in the pool for an hour. That's going to be the routine for the foreseeable future, so I began to wonder if I should just never color my hair again. I figured an experiment was in order. The salon is using WebOpenings to offer short-notice appointments at a discount, so I signed up for an appointment yesterday.

I've still got a couple of weeks before my neighborhood pool opens. That one's a chlorine pool, and I've been swimming in salt water at Snohomish. Salt water's got to be easier on hair color, so phase one of the test will be to see how it holds up there. Once Forest Park opens, I might get the color re-done if it's worn off a bit and see what happens. I actually don't even need to get my hair very wet when I'm there since I tread water in that pool.

Anyway, here's the before:

I like this new color, though not quite as much as the last time I dyed it. She said part of what she used that time has been discontinued, which is unfortunate. However, she also said they recently did a class about different effects they can achieve with silver dye, so I might try something different soon. One example she mentioned was a denim color, which sounds kind of fascinating and trashy at the same time.
