Color Me Rad 5K | Saving My Hair After ...

Mark (the boo) and I did a 5k "Color Me Rad" run about two weeks ago. It was simply bananas! My hair was drenched in colors. Altho, some of my fellow runners wore caps or some protection around their hair. I opted to just "let it go!" I decided, Hey! I can make this a DEEP deep wash day!

The Actual Run:

This 5K was somewhat of a challenge for me -surprisingly-- because it went through and around and behind, you name it, Six Flags. My knees could not handle running through the gravel section of this long trek. and I was not a fan of going up then down then up again a few hills! :/

However, I LOVED every moment of this run. Every one was just having a great time. There was running and walking, but mainly laughing. We went through 4 color stations, where we were drenched in either red, blue, yellow or purple! At the end, I was a walking crayon!

Goodie Bag: 

We got an awesome bag of treats from the organizers. We received sunglasses, tattoos, stickers and t-shirt! #ColorMeRad

My Hair Reality: 

I would advise/caution not wearing a cap! lol Although invigorating and fun, it was torture! hah! Seriously, it was not that bad. The colors came out very easily and my hair was back to normal (after a LONG DEEP DC). I had to wash colors out before shampooing with clarifying poo and moving through an abbreviated process. I skipped "pre-poo" because I was scared of anything settling in my hair. All in was seamless and refreshing!

Great Time... A lot of Fun!

If there is a "Color Me Rad" or Color Run, I say "DO IT!". #YOLO lol
