if in case info about dyed hair aint yo thang… this post aint for you.
if you don’t mind, please proceed.
so i’ve been considering dying my hair all black again, but i’m honestly scared to. i’m a commitment phobe in every sense, including with my hair. going black would be a massive undertaking to reverse if i have dyer’s remorse. doing the rad colors is a pain i’ve come to deal with over the years – it’s an hour of sitting around, and i usually do some weird shit where i try not to let dark blend into light areas, i have to redo it every 2/3 weeks, have to rinse in cool water, the bleach kills my curls, i have to use certain types of shampoos and conditioners which my curls hate… the list goes on and on.
i was recently looking at old pictures of myself, trying to hype myself up for this, and i can’t believe how much better my curls are when i was using BOX DYE and shampoo/conditioner with sulfate in it. it probably makes no sense – but i’ve been natural and sulfate free for a long time now, and my curls haven’t been that defined in a long time. even now, i do half of my head box dye black and the curls are better. you can read countless websites and they all tell you it’s terrible for your hair… well, i shrug at this. i don’t know how or why, but my hair is usually better with it.
there’s so much shit to “fun hair” (le internet sigh) – it’s not easy to deal with – and i think after lots and lots of years of doing it, i might hang it up for a while. anytime after i watch jessica jones especially, i’m ITCHING to dye it black (and UGH anytime i see krysten ritter, i’m itching to cut my bangs back in). i figure i’ll let it grow back out to my waist (i’m more than halfway there), keep it for as long as i can handle it and then CHOP CHOP CHOP and bleach/dye it green again as usual.
not that i’m doing this because of this reason, but there are so many regular and corny ass poser people dying their hair weird colors now, and it’s really lost its UMPH for me. it’s not just for punks, ravers and social outcast weirdos anymore. it’s just so over-saturated now and the roots of all of it seem to not even matter anymore (no pun(s) intended). i know i’ve mentioned this kind of stuff on my blog before, but a lot of us were bullied or treated differently for being into alternative stuff back in the day, and here we are today with the same people exploiting it. it’s just annoying (fuckin’ posers!!!1).
also: it’s really hard to match makeup and clothing to specific hair colors. i just bought jeffree’s mini-breaker palette and realized it’d look so chaotic with 6 diff colours in my bangs/on my left side that don’t match the palette at all. against black thooooooo >
anyways… here goes nothin’!
back to my old emo/gothy stu self.
