Me and my hair have a special relationship. As a child my mother made sure I valued my long, thick, wavy, almost black locks. I hated the idea of cutting it or of bleaching it for some colour. Even through university (that time of hair colour experimentation) I didn’t like to do more than trim the edges and I never, ever went beyond eight-wash hair dye.
Finally, I decided my hair could take it. I went red for awhile (a look I really loved), but it wasn’t exactly wild enough to justify checking off my 50 in 50 list.
So a few years back, alongside the start of the mermaid hair trend, I went half blue. I loved it so, but it was hella difficult for me to maintain with how dark my hair grows back. I ended up spending too much money on hairdressers to justify the cost. Still, it did mean I can tick dying my hair a crazy colour off this list.
Red hair on the other hand… watch this space!
