I’ve been contemplating on gettin pink hair for a few weeks and finally did it last weekend. Everyone was surprised and many said that I was brave to do so.
Unfortunately, it came with a number of issues I never knew would arise.
Naturally, some would ask why I’d do such a drastic change. Not that cropping my hair super short after having long hair for a long time was anything close to a change in anyone’s pov, last year. Actually, I don’t have an answer to that. I’m not one to follow trends of pop stars or ever want to be like an anime (been so long since I watched one, surprisingly). I don’t watch kpop or follow on with any of those cutesy japanese culture. I was just bored. But of all the colours to choose from, I thought that pink would suit my skin colour best.
Negative comments from passersby. Positive from friends, though. Not sure whether it’s out of courtesy or awe. But, not that it mattered. Yes, honestly. I don’t know why, but, I became oblivious. And… a bit more outspoken. I accidentally blurted out what I thought because I was a little pissed with a girl earlier today due to being insensitive to the public due to reckless riding. I’d usually just mumble in my heart and move on.
Adding on to the random dream of wanting bright pink hair, I mentioned another point. Hair is just that… hair. I can colour it anything today and it can be another colour tomorrow. Does it entirely affect my character? Maybe a little, like what I’ve mentioned above, but, it won’t be a huge one. Doubt it’d be a bad change either. Why does people have to be judgmental over a different look or being different in any way? Ever thought that maybe… just maybe… we never did want to be like you or any other “follow the pack” group?
Some might think that it’s to attract attention. Hmmm… didn’t think of that before I did it.
I’m already in my 30s. When else am I going to experiment with new stuff? When I’m way older? Who knows, I’ll already wear my headscarf by then.
It’s not that I’ve changed anything except the colour of my hair, but the judgemental comments are in abundance.
Oh.. if you do want to dye awesome colours, try dixmondsg. I bleached my hair thrice and the fourth only on the fringe. Then, it’s one coat of toning, followed by the ash pink dye. LOVE the smell!!! The dye smells like sweet raspberries. lol. Note that I’ve gone to numerous salons for many years to ask to bleach my hair (to wash off a colour) or dye it way lighter, but, all refused because of my baby hair. I’ve very fine and thin hair. But, the bleach was quite mild. Good luck! And enjoy the change!!
My hair seems to grow very fast, though. I could already see the black roots peeping out since a day after.
