crippling blond hair colour

For long months I was longing for a change on my head. I love all kind of changes. That's the only way to experience and vary. Change a flat every few years, rent a house in the forest, move to the huge city, change your job after few years, change a profession some time, if you're bored just recreate yourself from the beginning. Age has absolutely and fortunately nothing to do with it.

I do it all the time. Since I discovered that I'm afraid of only and only technical part of all these changes and that it's not so difficult in the end and brings every time a lot of freshness and adventures, I do it regularly.
But recently I rarely changed my hair colour.
Blonde destroyed and desiccated my hair. I couldn't keep it longer any more so it stayed with this unflattering length.
My friend, who happened to be a hairdresser, is a huge fan of champagne, warm blonde. For years I had this feeling something was wrong...I looked like a transvestite... sometimes. 
He tried to convince me it's because of my always visible darker roots.
But no.
I discovered few weeks after dyeing it always started to be in extremely warmish shade. And 'warm' colours  are not mine.
Anyway as our ways went in separate directions, I guess it happens when one starts to expect the other one to be someone else and scolds for features that actually create one's personality, we stopped keeping the relation alive probably because of this huge lack of acceptance. 
This is the beginning of 'How I got to MATRIX studio in Northampton'.
Harry, with 7 years of experience, chose for me this darker blonde. For the first time since 2009 my hair look actually healthy and there's even a shine. 
I still don't recognize myself but feel so much better.
More like Barbara Stanwyck femme fatale...

who, by the way, looked very kitschy in screaming blond in 'Double Indemnity',

and finally less like a worse copy of Sandra Dee...

So, early (at noon) in the morning I run to shoot few self-photos, very often I can't decide if I see something live but on the photos I know immediately, and yes - I'm satisfied.
I am convinced my friend in the (constant) flow of self admiration and self glorification would trample my satisfaction, but well... he's not here and I feel truly Lighter now.
I didn't put any make up, I'm sorry... just tried to fix it with a lipstick later on and didn't want to wait.

I adore red hair !!! which I will never have because of my 'red face' effect. However I found bloggers advice how to maintain it: msK
It is difficult for me to believe what was there: 
"by now my hair is getting used to only being washed every third or fourth day. My personal record is not washing it for 5 days, and my hair felt GREAT, no kidding. I actually felt like my hair said "I love you!!". When your hair goes greasy or feels a bit eww hide it in a bandana or wear a hat, it's getting close to winter anyway."
I guess everyone knows it but just so I feel better... Wash You Hair !!!
Ladies! Hygiene is a foundation of existence.
It was in times of my fathers when people thought: 'It will eventually become less dirty when you don't wash it.'
Almost everyone dye their hair, and everyone know that washing it takes out the colour. But it's like oxygen and breathing - it always goes together !!!
If you want to get drunk you'll pay for it the next day.
There's action and consequence.
Hair is just the same part of your body as skin and teeth. It gets dirty in the same way. Biological process doesn't stop 3cm above your eyebrows.
When your hair goes greasy or feels a bit eww hide it in a bandana or wear a hat, it's getting close to winter anyway.
When your hair feels eww or greasy WASH IT !!!
It is more than repulsive to put on 'it' anything. The smell, the look. Hopefully you won't meet your dream guy that day !
I would like to go a step further and suggest:
WASH IT Before it feels eww !!!
I cherish glamour every day, all day and strongly disagree with this what I'm reading at Miss K blog. 
Also comments made me really disappointed:
Totally agree! being a faux red for 15 years the best thing you can do is not wash it! I wash mine twice a week max and it keeps the colour in so much longer and its not good to wash your hair lots anyway as it strips the hair of natural oils :)

'Natural Oils' !!!??? is there anything like this??? you mean Filth and Stench?
I guess/hope you're not single girls, for your own sake, suspecting laziness.
Blonde, Red... agree with consequences. It is fading but maintenance can NOT be hold by grease and lack of hygiene on your head !!!
I'll take it as Delirium.

However she is one of my favourites.
For Delirium was once Delight. And although that was long ago now, even today her eyes are badly matched: one eye is a vivid emerald green, spattered with silver flecks that move, her other eye is vein blue.
