I am still stuck with 'bargain'.
Bargain - as an agreement? obligation? negotiation? come to term?
A blue object involved? A thought or idea involved?

hi, back! was in a hurry this morning..
Did you dye your hair blue by mistake? Did something turn blue? Did you order something without seeing it? Is the blue on a person? part of a person? something organic? grass? something which was alive and is now dead? Was the blue mould?
Did you expect one specific colour?
Did you settle for blue? Could you change it? Were other people involved?

Are you blue all over?!
Is it your hair? Did the dye say red and it came out a shade of blue? or with a bluey sheen?
If you didn't settle for blue but couldn't change it, did you take some other course of action? Covering the blue? cutting it off? hibernating?

Are you color blind?
Was it difficult to determine the end result from the picture/description on the package?
Did someone put the wrong color in the wrong package?
Were you just in a hurry and did not pay enough attention?

Can we stick to auburn? It's a lovely colour.
Or is the relevant colour closer to red, and this is relevant?

So you wanted to dye a stripe in your hair in colour A? and got colour B?
Did you want auburn and got sapphire? :-)

Or maybe the case is such that you didn't see a sample, and the colour's name suggested a reddish colour, but it was actually quite different? Any mistranslations involved? Engrish?

Is the experience in the puzzle lovely or horrible?:D

Or is the relevant colour closer to red, and this is relevant? it's not very relevant

So you wanted to dye a stripe in your hair yes, but beware in colour A? and got colour B? yes
Did you want auburn and got sapphire? We agreed I wanted auburn. I got blue-black

Or maybe the case is such that you didn't see a sample it is - explore, and the colour's name suggested a reddish colour, but it was actually quite different? well, no Any mistranslations involved? Engrish? no to both

Is the experience in the puzzle lovely or horrible?:D mainly nice; lovely is a bit strong perhaps, but no horrors

Was the dye in a plastic bottle, but without the label and the package? I'm not familiar with hair dye packaging...

Was the dye liquid auburn-coloured but it actually made hair blue? (Is this possible?)

Wikipedia to the rescue!

it wasn't liquid? Was it creamy, shampoo-like? Was it gasous / inside a pressurised spray? Is this relevant?

Temporary? Semi-permanent? Demi-permanent? Permanent? Is this relevant?

So the dye didn't make the hair blue by itself, right? If used correctly and by itself, would it make hair auburn? blue? something else?

Did you use it correctly? Did it interfere with something else?

Wikipedia to the rescue! What did we do in the days before...?

it wasn't liquid? it wasn't Was it creamy, shampoo-like? yope Was it gasous / inside a pressurised spray? no Is this relevant? it might be for finding out exactly what and why

Temporary? no Semi-permanent? perhaps Demi-permanent? perhaps Permanent? possibly Is this relevant? see last paragraph

So the dye didn't make the hair blue by itself, right? wrong - it did If used correctly and by itself, would it make hair auburn? this blue? obviously, but unforeseen something else? this too

Did you use it correctly? yes, but... Did it interfere with something else? no

Does it matter how long the dye stayed in the hair before washing it off? If so, did it stay in too long? too short?
Was it a two-part hair dye? If so, did you use both parts?
Did the dye react to something else in you hair? Another dye? schampoo? conditioner?

Is it the name of the color that is confusing? or confusingly similar to the color you wanted?
Does the dye react differently to different hair colors?

Did it come in solid form like a bar of soap? Powder? Did it have to be mixed with water? diluted in some way? Was it a vegetable dye? Did it matter whether it was rinsed or washed with hot or cold water? Was it very old? had it been in your cupboard for years, losing its packaging and instructions, just retaining the word auburn or whatever? Might there have been a use by date on the packaging? Is the section of hair you dyed relevant to what happened? The amount of dye you used?

Did the blue color come from the dye? The dye alone? Did you use anything else to help applying it? Could that thing have cause the color to change?

Have you dyed your hair before? Did you get the color you wanted in previous attempt?
Does the nature or condition of your hair have an affect?
Was there anything wrong with the hair product? Expired shelf life? Poor storage condition?

Is your natural hair color relevant?
Did you rinse your hair after dyeing it? Was the water pure?

Is it the name of the color that is confusing? no or confusingly similar to the color you wanted? no
Does the dye react differently to different hair colors? apparently

Snoozer Posted on Friday, February 09, 2007 - 10:06 pm:

Could the same color name mean different things depending on what brand you choose? perhaps, but irrelevant

Sunshine Posted on Saturday, February 10, 2007 - 8:46 am:

Did it come in solid form like a bar of soap? yes Powder? no Did it have to be mixed with water? yes diluted in some way? so, yes Was it a vegetable dye? yes Did it matter whether it was rinsed or washed with hot or cold water? yes Was it very old? no had it been in your cupboard for years, losing its packaging and instructions, just retaining the word auburn or whatever? no, but good idea Might there have been a use by date on the packaging? yes, if thee had been any packaging Is the section of hair you dyed relevant to what happened? FA and yes The amount of dye you used? no

Snoozer Posted on Monday, February 12, 2007 - 4:44 pm:

Did the blue color come from the dye? yes The dye alone? I suppose so Did you use anything else to help applying it? water, see above Could that thing have cause the color to change? no

Rufus Posted on Monday, February 12, 2007 - 5:40 pm:

Have you dyed your hair before? yes Did you get the color you wanted in previous attempt? yes
Does the nature or condition of your hair have an effect? yes
Was there anything wrong with the hair product? don't think so Expired shelf life? Poor storage condition? no to both

Snoozer Posted on Monday, February 12, 2007 - 10:16 pm:

Is your natural hair color relevant? yes!
Did you rinse your hair after dyeing it? yes Was the water pure? yes

What a bunch of questions! I've been away for a while, haven't I? Good progress here.

Is your natural colour really the "dark blond" from your profile?
Did this mean you left it on too long? You shouldn't have used it at all?
Were you dying all your hair except one or more highlights?
Was the dye henna?
Did you mix with cold water instead of hot? Other way round? Same for rinsing?

Is there an actual difference between the blue section of hair and the rest of your hair before dying? Is the color already different before the auburn attempt?

Still not sure about something...when you dyed your hair previously, did you encounter the same problem, with your grey hair reacting differently to the dye? Is it the first time you are using this type of dye? Is there anything else we need to figure out?

Are you just starting to have your first grey hairs? Is this the reason why you wanted to dye it this time?
Did you think that covering grey hair with a nice color would be the minimum requirement of all hair dyes, and found out too late that this was not the case?

Are you the kind of person who reads instructions carefully before using a product? What about in this case?
Did you read the whole instruction before starting the process? Did you miss something you should do because you did not read all of it from start? Such as the back side?
Was it different instructions for treating grey hair and naturally colored hair? No instructions or warnings at all? Was it written in small print so it was impossible to read or easily missed?

Did the instruction say that you would actually get a different color if you used it on grey hair? Was it a color that you thought would not be such a big deal? Orange?

By deliberately not following some of the instruction, your greys turned blue? So whatever was not followed was the root cause of the "blued" greys? Was this left-out bit of instruction part of the pre-treatment process? the actual dye treatment process? the rinse process? Anything to do with length of time you kept the dye in your hair?

Did you follow all the instructions in previous hair dye attempt, and did all your hair turn out to be the same colour during the previous attempt?

One last crack at it? The instruction says you should test it for actual effect, because resulting colour may differ for different people?

****** SPOILER ********

I have henna'ed my hair several times, using so-called brown or auburn henna, because the red seems a little too red. But it was a few years since last time, and meanwhile I have developed one grey strand, almost right in front (which bothered me until a very nice woman said "Oh, have you bleached a strand? Cool!"). This time I had found a new type of henna, which comes in a cake instead of a powder, and the instructions said that you should test on a strand first (hah! thought I, it never was any problem before) and be sure to include a grey strand when testing, because they would become bright red (well, thought I, but I only have that one strand, barring individual white hairs). So I went along, without having tested, and the hair became nicely dark reddish brown, except for the grey strand, which turned blue-black. But it only shows in bright light, and I decided it looks cool.
And what would have been the point of testing? The grey, now blue, strand still is almost right in front!
Besides, when checking the ingredient list, I found it contained, among other things, Red Henna (Lawsonia inermis) and Black Henna (Indigofera tinctoria), which latter one I learnt to call not henna but indigo. So it shouldn't have been a surprise. :-)
