Thanks to everyone for their support during Hair-gate. Update: the hair is, in a word, strange, but I'm slowly getting used to it; it's apparently not a good idea to re-dye your hair within 24 hours, so, the color is still there. I've found if I comb it a certain way, the most egregious splotchiness isn't that visible. My friends say it isn't as bad as I think it is, and over time, I'll get used to it. One friend said no one will notice.
She means well, she really does.
I just shudder to think what I'll look like tomorrow beneath those harsh fluorescent lights at work; I just hope my co-workers are kind enough not to laugh in my face.
