Home hair highlighting kits are never a good idea. Remind me next time.

Yeah, right, that's what my hair will look like.

Smelly, messy, unpredictable…dangerous.

WARNING: DO NOT GET INTO EYES, MAY CAUSE BLINDNESS

DIRECTIONS: RINSE UNTIL WATER RUNS CLEAR

As I am hanging my head over the shower trying to wash the toxins out of my hair, the water starts dripping down the sides of my face.

“I THINK SOME JUST GOT INTO MY EYES!! I CAN’T SEE!!  HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO TELL IF THE WATER IS RUNNING CLEAR, I AM GOING BLIND!!!!”

Well, it’s all over now and I still have my eyesight, thankfully. But can you imagine going blind from a highlighting kit?! BLIND. Like, not able to see?! I sure can. And it isn’t fun. It would be a horrible thing to have to tell my husband over the phone.

As for the unpredictable part? My hair looks nothing like the model’s on the box. I should have seen that one coming. Oh yeah, and I decided to trim my own bangs. Killer combo.

If I were telling you this on Twitter I’d say something like, #notmyfinesthour.
