I've been a blonde all my life and people let me know I'm lucky to have naturally blonde hair but to me its boring.. I envied people who experiment with colour so I thought seeing as I am starting a fresh in a brand new city why not take the plunge into the world of colour (and if I don't like it it will go in 24 washes). I used a Boots Semi - permanent Spiced Chestnut Brown shade on my hair and I love the out come. I wonder if my IQ will go up now I'm brunette... I'll let you know.
