The Adventures of Super Blonde!

I've been a blonde since the day I was born. Apart from a few crazy times when I dyed my hair purple, blue, or pink, I've never gone darker than dirty blonde. I used to highlight my hair on a regular basis, but lately I've decided to go in a better direction: I'm now a platinum blonde!

Despite the fact that becoming platinum means suffering through the sometimes burning process of a bleach and tone, I love my platinum locks...and I love my stylist! She actually listens to me and gives me what I ask for. Plus she doesn't charge an arm and a leg, and I appreciate that.

Whenever I get my hair freshly platinumed, I joke to my husband that I am off to become Super Blonde. Super Blonde sounds like a super hero, and thinking that my ultra blond hair will somehow give me super powers appeals to me.

I know it shouldn't make any difference what my hair looks like, but when my hair is freshly colored, I feel a little better about the way I look. Super Blonde is a confident woman!

Am I alone with this? Do you feel somehow prettier or more sure of yourself after getting your hair done? And...what is the craziest thing you've ever done with your hair color?
