all my favourite
literary heroines as a child had long red hair, esp anne shirley and jinny manders. jinny even had a ginger arab horse, ffs. i was desperate to have red hair, and was gutted when the red henna shampoo in sainsbury's failed to do anything more than make my (dark brown) hair smell a bit funny.

so when i got to be about 13, my friend and i dyed our hair with harmony wash-in, wash-out colour. called "cherry". it failed to do anything more than make my (dark brown) hair smell a bit funny. however, my formerly white blonde friend turned into a flaming redhead. if only i had been more skilled and had done it evenly. she had brilliant red bits and streaky pink bits and the back of her head, where i had dropped a giant blob, looked as if someone had shot her. even when she washed it, the colour only faded a bit and then refused to budge. she looked like an apricot poodle for weeks.

these days i pay my hairdresser to have my (dark brown) hair dyed a rich and glossy shade of deep auburn. without smelling funny. i even have the ridiculously fair skin that could burn in siberia at midnight. i am such a ginger wannabe.

also, i don't do girls. but the ginger one from "girls aloud"? if it was munch a rug or die, she would probably get it.

not much of an ultimatum.

plus, aren't you supposed to bleach first? not that I'd know or anything....

I loved
Those Jinny books. How I craved to live in the arse-end of nowhere and ride my massive ginger horse across a sodding great moor. I too gave in and became a redhead.

My friend asked me to henna
her already fairly gingesque barnet.

I dyed her ears orange into the bargain.

It might be a "natural" product but it's a bugger to shift unless you don;t mind soaking your ears in bleach...

I must say
that the ginger one from GA would be the last of the five to get it. But rather that than die, by a long chalk. I'd probably suck off a ginger bloke rather than die, come to that. Probably.

My sister once tried to dye her hair red when we were young. She wore one of my t-shirts to do it, and managed to get dye all over it. She also got it over the bathroom radiator, which turned bright purple, oddly enough.
