My new hair color + a couple photos of Rocky :)

I ended up dying my hair last night with the hair dye I posted about yesterday. It was the Clairol Nice n’ Easy Colorblend Foam in the shade #4 Dark Brown. Prior to dying my hair, my hair color was an ashy, medium brown with a bunch of golden brown-auburn tones towards the bottom. This dye changed my color to a very dark, rich brown. I really like it, and I’m hoping it’s not going to fade considerably once I wash my hair. 

As for the dye, I don’t think I’d purchase it again. I thought the idea of using a foam was kinda cool, but I actually find it a little inconvenient to use – especially when using a brush to coat the roots. Also another inconvenience, by the looks of the container, it looks like a pump – but it’s not. You have to squeeze the bottle for the foam to dispense. Not a big deal, but it’s a little awkward. I waited the full 25 minutes, conditioned and rinsed. It left my hair feeling really dry. I could barely get a brush through my hair. On the plus side, it seemed to take well to my gray hairs, and the color looks great. I’ll just have to make sure to load up on the deep conditioners. I’m almost done with my Aussie Deep Conditioner. I think I might pick up the “It’s a 10” Miracle Leave in Conditioner. I saw it today at ULTA in a pink bottle for Breast Cancer Awareness. (For more info, click here) Anyone recommend it?

I bought this cute little Halloween pajama for Rocky a few days ago at Target. He looks so adorable, but he is always so full of energy, I could not get a decent picture of him. The first picture was the best I could do for now. lol
He looks like Alfalfa.
And, here he is being his typical watch dog self. I was outside on the patio trying to get his attention, but he kept ignoring me. Typical guy.

Talk to you all soon!

  1. Hi Everyone,

    I know I suddenly disappeared, but it's because there was a sudden tragedy in my family on Oct 2nd. My family and I have been going through a very difficult time. I will return to blogging very, very soon. I'm starting to get back into my regular routine slowly but surely, and I'm anticipating to start posting again within a week or so.

    Thank you for all of your best wishes and concerns.

    I have more details posted on my Twitter at!/nattyngeorge

    Talk to you all soon,


  2. I use the It's a 10 conditioning spray, and I have very thick, colored, wavy hair that's a pain to get a brush through if it's wet. This stuff is the ONLY product I'll use as a leave in treatment, it makes me hair soft and shiny and easy (or easier, I should say) to work with wet. I say it's the only product because for some reason with most other leave in treatments I feel like my hair is weighed down considerably. It's a 10 doesn't do that at all, definitely recommend!



  3. oh natty! I feel terrible! I have checked back to your blog literally everyday waiting for you to update! I know, I'm crazy! haha. But your blog was the very first beauty blog that I have ever read and followed. I actually went back to the very first post when I first found your blog. I am so, so, so sorry to hear about your dad. I am so close to my dad and I cant imagine living without him. In fact just the other day I was watching reruns of ny ink a girl was in getting a tattoo in remembrance of her father. It made me cry just imagining living without my father, I told my mom that if my dad died I wouldnt want to live any longer. Reading your comment and twitter updates brought tears to my eyes. I'm sure this has been a rough time, and I know there really isnt much one can say to make a grieving person feel better. If you are ever in need of a shoulder to cry on, or an ear to listen I am here. My heart and prayers are with you and your family. Feel free to email me, whenever you need or want. Stay strong, darling. Dont lose hope. And keep living. ♥

  4. I love the color. But I agree when I used it, i felt like my hair got drier. Which sucked. But I love the its a 10 conditioner and the leave in spray. Both worked wonders on my hair. Love them.
