I tried a cheaper hair color and it turned out quite Elvira-ish.
Mom: “Sarah, do you think my hair turned out too dark?”
Sarah: “Umm, I don’t know what to say.”
Point taken. I called the hair hotline and was advised to use cheap shampoo for a week to see if it gets lighter before I try to fix it. I pulled out the scissors and cut off a few chunks just for good measure.
