Black-light hair in 2009
I want hair like this again (kitten optional), but without all the root growth. It looks cool at that length, but then it kept growing and roughly half my hair was not pink and it looked pretty weird.
And that is my favorite pink-dye shade. So much more vibrant than this crap ever was!

Aaw! The kitten's cute too. Yeah, that is a better pink for you. I like the dark with the bright pink, though. More contrast is more depth. But that might just be me.
We'll see where the wallet takes me. Could be that I just freshen up with this crappy pink next month. I don't know if I'll touch up the roots yet. It's going to be a pain regardless. I've never touched up roots before and Boyfriend is not very dexterous. Grrr need more hair-experienced friends.
That makes me want to watch Dexter again. Got tired of Julia Stiles' character and didn't start the next season with her, but I miss his character. Drssgchic, have you watched it? I feel like you might like him. He is disturbingly relate-able, for a serial killer.
Passing thought: +1 for less anxiety? Passing conversations with co-workers are actually pleasant. Sure, it's just about the weather, but I don't feel like I have to force it and I really am looking forward to good weather this weekend.
Excellent news on the anxiety.
If this pink washes out too soon, try SPLAT! color next. I believe it lasts longer than Manic Panic. As to the roots, I've never done it with bleach. I tend to favor the "rub it on my hands and rub it into my scalp and roots" as opposed to the careful bit by section technique.
I love Dexter, but I've only seen the first few episodes. He says and does half the shit I only wish I could say and do.
(Out of curiosity, have you tried GABA yet for the anxiety? It helped me for a while, esp combined with tryptophan.)
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"
My Latest Journal
I have been dealing with depression a long time. Found that testosterone and prozac have helped. The testosterone helped so much that I'm reducing the prozac.
The Paleo diet, I'm sure, has given the whole thing a big boost. I suspect especially the cutting out of grains, bread and dairy has been of most help.
Hoping in the end to get off as many meds as possible. It's one of the goals.
I've tried GABA Calm (except mint flavored) and it only works for episodes, not general anxiety, and leaves me rather "blah" afterwards. Which is preferable to self-destructive behavior, but it's kind of like how I would feel after a self-destructive episode anyway, so I guess that connection makes it not so preferable to me.
Well the good thing about touching up the roots with bleach is that roots tend to lighten more (because the hair is "fresh") and overlapping with existing color and bleached areas will only serve to help blend the color, so I can get messy. I just have to work fast so my scalp doesn't burst into flames. Fortunately, with going no-poo, my scalp is much better protected by natural oils. When I bleached a couple of weeks ago, it was itchy, but not nearly as awful as I remember it being in the past.
