Once we hit the goal of over $500, it was time to get rolling on this rainbow hair of mine. However, what colors were going in my head wasn't up to me! Each contributor was emailed with a poll to choose their top five colors to plop in my curly locks.

The first step was to get my hair cut, because like hell was I going to run around with a giant mop of hair in the deserts of Asia. So off went half my hair. And then the bleaching. Oh the bleaching. My hair didn't want to bleach. It took three hours to bleach this sucker, but in the end I had platinum blonde locks ready for color. After a week of letting my hair rest so it wouldn't crumble off my head, the colors were bought, prepped, and painted into my hair by Sora's lovely sister. And voila!
