I am exceedingly happy to be a redhead again! I was previously, for almost 15 years... it just suits me. However, I was concerned about the links between commercial hair dye and certain cancers (lymphoma, specifically) and discontinued use.

What fun! I'm glad to have my hair announce my temperament again! :)
Here I was sure that the goopy green substance wouldn't be identified, but it turns out Aline uses henna herself, and Velda was just naturally suspicious that it was dye... though she never expected the green goop to turn me into a copper penny! It's hard to put anything by you guys.
