And I had almost made the decision to dye it brown because why not? But then…I started thinking: what if people thought I did it because I am afraid I am less like to be hired for a new job, because I have a uncommon hair colour. And I will admit – that for a moment there, I didn’t want to change it. Because I genuinely support people with strange hair colours, tattoos, people who don’t ‘look normal’.
My last hair colour while definitely noticeable it was still in the ‘normal’ range – we know redheaded people, so orange isn’t that much of a stretch. But blue is only normal in Pokemon/anime worlds. And this ombre grey/seaweed – that’s just plain old weird.
And the thing is I don’t mind making stands for things I believe in. I don’t mind ‘over sharing’ to make people with the same issues realize that they are not alone – but in the end – I hate my hair. Am I going to give up on my quest for granny grey?
Well, I ended up scrolling way down in my IG feed – and frankly – I miss this look. So screw it. I am going back to orangey red. I was clearly supposed to look like this. Blue was a fun detour but in the end that’s all it was. A detour. Now let’s get back to normal 😉
