A warning to all those poor yet hair-coloured-inclined blog readers out there.
Don't use Boots Colour. Don't use it for 10 minutes longer than the recommended time. Don't think that 'Rich Mahogany' will leave you looking anything like Catherine Zeta Jones. Don't think that Clare Danes circa 1994 is a look worth aspiring to. Don't use washing up liquid in a vain attempt to return to your suddenly-attractive-mousey pre-existence.
Don't find all this out two days before embarking on your first hot holiday in four years.
Anyone in the market for a bandana?
