I went to private school where our handbooks said that we couldn’t dye our hair any “unnatural” colors. I spent years itching to dye my hair pink or blue, but wasn’t allowed to do it.
When I got to college, I sported a few hot pink low lights during a breast cancer awareness promotion at a local hair salon. I loved them! But the bleaching required to get the pink strands to show up in my dark hair was super damaging, which I wasn’t a fan of.
Even though I would love to chop my hair off like J-Law, I just can’t bring myself to do it. So I resort to dying my hair in order to keep myself from getting bored. I go ombre every couple of months, and I’m thinking about going red in the near future. Obviously, I’ll show you if i do!
One thing I really adore though is using temporary dyes and hair chalk to get fun colors that aren’t permanent! I can also be really indecisive so temporary hair colors are perfect for me. If you’ve been wanting to go blue or green or purple to rebel a little, you can! This is also a great way to see if you’d like the color before making it a permanent thing and freaking out your mom.
