Well friends, I think my battle with roots has come to an end. I have searched and searched for an answer to the "root" problem, but it seems the only solution is to just dye my hair darker. As someone whose hair grows like wildfire, it's just impossible for me to not have darker roots within a couple of weeks. I have done this before in the past, but somehow my hair always ends up blonde again. Hopefully this time I will be happy with the result. As you all know, I have been gradually adding in more and more lo-lights. At my appointment next week I plan on keeping a few highlights on top, but dying the rest of my hair back to my natural color which is a dark blonde/light brown. I know most people go lighter in the summer, but here's to going darker!
