OK - this is part of my timeline.  It's not got all of it in there because a) I can't find other photos, and b) the boring bits are where I'm also at my fattest and I'm simply not prepared to publish those photos! 

The first one is in July 2007.  I'd just had my hair cut short (it used to be mid back length with box dyed dark red colour).  (I was also just getting divorced, and had my 1st tattoo done!) . 

The second was a few months later when I just kept adding the blonde in.  At this stage I was solvent, so got it done by a hairdresser! 

Having had it blonde for about a year, I got bored again but rather than changing colour, went for extensions!  A friend patiently braided these in (14 hours!).  A lot of work, and they were great - but I'm not sure I could put up with the time / effort involved again.  (This isn't the best pic with it tied back at work, but it's the only one I can find with the braids in).

After I took the braids out I decided to go red - this was Directions PillarBox red. 

When I couldn't be bothered with faffing (transfer, fade etc) I went dark again, and let it grow.  This was me in July 2012. 

I left it dark (boring?!) for 18 months - mostly dyed black, then stripped it and bleached it and went Rose Red in january this year, which I still am.  ;D

I really like the braids and the red on you, were the braids comfortable to wear?

The braids weren't too bad to wear - they were heavy but I got used to them quite quickly.  The main thing that would stop me having them again was the time it took my friend to do them!
