Hard as it is to believe there was once a time when those who colored their hair were looked down on by "respectable" women. Some would sneer, "She gets her color out of bottle, you know." Making it sound like that was a bad thing.
That's not to say you're going to duplicate the salon experience at home any time soon exactly. But it also doesn't mean the over the bathroom sink approach can't be more enjoyable, or pleasant even, now does it?In other words we've come a long way, baby when it comes to coloring our hair.
