been getting lots of compliments on my hair lately…

  
made me remember back to the first time I coloured it…

had been working in a very toxic environment and was trying to wear red every day… red is a colour that makes me feel strong and I really needed to find strength wherever I could… didn’t have that many red clothes so I decided to have a little bit of red put into my hair…

never been coloured before, but I was desperate to feel some type of protection

it was just a tiny bit at the front of my head which could hardly be seen, but I had red on every day… helped make me feel stronger as I struggled to get through those very difficult days…

not long after I got out of that bad spot I decided to put purple in my hair…

tried a few systems that I put in myself, but the colour would wash out with every shampoo…

eventually found a place that used allum and had my hair professionally done… seems silly to dye such short hair but it lasts a long time and doesn’t leave any colour behind on towels or pillows, lol…

have tried having a tiny bit in and other times there has been a lot… outside in the sun it always looks amazing…

my hairdresser did a great job this time and it looks very nice…

does make me giggle when someone says “I like your hair” because I don’t even think about it anymore… it is just part of me…

interesting how we get to a certain place in our lives…
