Rose gold, pink champagne, “blorange”—no matter what you
call it, pink hair is trending. But regardless of how many hashtags a hair color
has under its Instagram belt, looking in the mirror to see a head of hair that’s
completely transformed into a different color without signing off on the change
is a feeling we’d prefer to never experience. However, a U. K. mom wasn’t so
lucky when her relaxing bubble bath turned into quite the surprise.
While proceeding to wash her hair in the shower, 44-year-old Kerrie Henderson absentmindedly
grabbed her 24-year-old’s bottle of conditioner, which she was using to house red hair dye, instead of her own routine conditioner. “I knew the bath water had a red cast to it, but I thought
it was just from the bubble bath I had used,” Henderson
tells The Sun, explaining that she did not realize that her
light blond locks had taken on a new, bright-pink shade until her six-year-old
daughter pointed it out to her after the fact.
As you would expect of a shoddily done dye job (she thought it
was conditioner, after all), Henderson’s hair was a patchy mixture of blond and pink—you can view the images here—and she rightfully blames her daughter, who sports a vivid fuchsia look, for the
mishap. To cover up the patches, Henderson decided to box-dye her hair purple
until her blond hair grows back in, which she’s been trying to do for close to
a year now with no luck. “I love having blond hair, but that’s not going to
happen for a while now.”
The bottom line: always read your labels and never keep hair
dye in the shower—ever.
