Sod's Law and the Hair Dye.

If you have been dyeing your hair for 20 years and have never spilt so much as a drop of dye on your clothes and...

...If you decide to dye your hair at 5:15pm when you are leaving for a party at 6pm...

Still take the time to put on that old black t-shirt otherwise sod's law!

True! But what happened!!??

I know it as Murphy's Law, but it's the same thing. And I can imagine all sorts of scenarios, none of which involve you getting you hair dyed perfectly without a drop spilled and you arriving at the event on time and looking radiant.

ChrisB said...

So which top did you spoil!?!?

Holler said...

Oh no! Did you get the dye out?

Bet you had a good night anyway!

The worst accident I ever had while getting ready to go out, was painting my nails while in the bath! I dropped the pot and hey presto a pool of red sticking to me and the bath! It was awful to clean up! I didn't dare tell Graham how stupid I had been!

get another packet of dye - and do the rest of the shirt. At least that way the shirt will be all the one colour. :)

my mother had been dyeing her own hair for years, using a very cheap, drugstore brand hair dye. the winter my brother got married, she decided to splurge on the "good stuff." the color turned out to be quite different, and she ended up with her hair the bright copper color of a new penny.

so she was racing around the day of the wedding with her hair in a towel, and my dad kept hollering at her ("shouldn't you be getting ready?") (COMPLICATING FACTOR: he didn't know she dyed her hair) and she had to race back to walgreens and buy the cheap brand and re-dye her hair.

her hair still turned out a rather vivid hue, but she was able to tone it down somewhat, anyway.

so beccy what happened to you?

Beccy said...

LBM, in my haste I got dye on my top and trousers!

WT, we arrived later than planned (lucikly it was turn up anytime after 6pm) looking radiant. Unlike my top.

Mum, mumble, mumble...

Holler most of it came out thanks to Vanish liquid and Vanish soak. That bath incident sounds worse, funnily enough I was just painting my nails on the side of the bath whilst Ben was in the bath, I'm so glad the polish didn't fall in.

TOB, I did think I could dye the top black but it may be ok.

Laurie nothing as dramatic as your mother as it was the top that got ruined not my hair!

That DubaT ! He can dole out those compliments, can't he...
Throw a scarf over the spot. or pin a large brooch over it, or continue to drop the dye on the blouse for a polka dot effect.

Will we see pics tomorrow to see what happened...Paul Harvey with The Rest of the Story.

frannie said...

that doesn't sound good at all....

john.g. said...

With the time left before said appointment, it wasn't really a good idea, was it?

Steffi said...

That´s sounds not so good!

Marmite Breath said...

Oh no!
Aaron has asked me to please go to a hairdresser and get my hair dyed from now on. Apparently, he doesn't like the toilet seat, sink, etc being covered in dye. I must say, it's a first for him--wanting me to spend stupid amounts of money on something frivolous like hair.

my4kids said...

that totally sounds like something I would do!
Like Willowtree we say Murphy's law here.

Beccy said...

Swampy, I've washed and dried the top and you can hardly see the mark so I'll be able to still use it, which is good as it's one mum bought for me!

Frannie, luckily most of the dye came out.

Not the best idea I've ever had John...or the worst!

I know Steffi.

Marmite Breath I was trying to save money by doing it myself.

Beccy said...

Terri, Murphy's law sounds more polite.

Debbie said...

It figures. I've had nights like that. Not with hair dye, mind you. :)

All dressed and ready to go out, I decide to give a stir of the pot of supper I made for the kids and my parents, and splotch. Spaghetti sauce on my only clean shirt!

Pamela said...

Pamela's Law is: The paper is always strongest at the perforation.

I don't care what it is, if it's supposed to be torn on the perforation, I always rip it right down the middle.

Sorry you got dye on your clothes.
When I was coloring my hair I used a zillion towels.

ChrisB said...

rebecca no wonder you wouldn't tell me now which one is it -I'm your mother and I need to know!! You can bring it with you!

Christine said...

I don't like the sound of what happened.

There was this time we were flying to D.C., and I had a WHITE shirt on, and I ordered Spaghetti for lunch. Lesson learned,never eat spaghetti, while flying and wearing a white shirt.

Sorry to hear about your shirt.

Sam said...

you dye your hair with your regular clothes on - are you crazy. I am just baout to do mine... Mine takes more than 40 minutes just to dye so i could never do that and the drying and everything in 45 minutes.

Sam said...

the reason i dye my own hair is to save time more than money. I can't be spending every 6 weeks at the hairdressers.

Melissa said...

aw, that sucks. Glad you got to your destination looking radiant anyway.

enidd said...

enidd envies people with dark hair - it's much harder to make a home job out of blonde, she thinks. and highlights, like she has, are impossible to do on your own. and she so agrees with sam about the wasted time at the hairdresser...

Sally Lomax said...

All over the new dress for the party maybe?
