Only Hair: Every Color I Dyed my Hair This Year
I didn’t start the year off with a mission to completely destroy every follicle of hair on my head in a bath of multi-colored dye. My thought process at first was, quite simply, that I had never had black hair. I had been blonde and brunette, have had red and green and orange and purple, but never black. So, I tried to go black with a non-permanent dye. It didn’t work, so I used a permanent one. I bought red lipstick and tried to pass myself off as snow white. Considering though that I am much more of an earth-tone girl (I much prefer brown shoes, pants, etc. to anything black) the lust for black hair was very very short lived. I decided after my first attempt that this would be the perfect time to experiment. Try a bunch of colors out, see what I liked best. And so I developed a mission to have twelve different hair colors, one for every month this year. So what if I fried it with ammonia or I didn’t like the color? It is only hair. It grows back, it can be dyed again.
My hair has officially stopped paying attention to the color I have dyed it. This last color looks absolutely no different than the one before it despite the fact that I chose a light brown without a hint of red and that last color had already faded quite a bit. After I dye it now, about a week later the color will revert to whatever I dyed it three tries ago. Maybe my hair is trying to tell me, “enough already”. And I agree. The last couple of times I didn’t really want the change but felt as if I owed it to myself and my two loyal readers who might actually care, to finish off, above and beyond, my goal. I dyed my hair thirteen times this year.
I will still have to dye my hair again next year. First to get it to the color I want to keep with and then to maintain it, but I assure you that every dye will be done with the same brand, and the same shade. Which color that will be, I’ll let you know later. For now, you can choose for yourself, as I present…
(note: there are 16 pictures, the 13 times I dyed this year plus my incoming color, a wig I wore, and the one time I actually got a hair cut)
Please leave a comment with the number of the color you liked best (please don’t everybody choose 10, and if you do at least leave something serious too). I’ll then see if all y’all agree with me. 🙂
