I Really Don't Enjoy the Colour Pink

Yet, I've decided to dye my hair pink.  And blue.  And purple.  While keeping a bit of it white still.  Why?  I don't know.  Probably because I've never had pink in my hair before. 

I'm usually a pretty conservative person in regards to how I dress.  No skirts or dresses that are less than knee length, the lowest cut tops I have are tank tops, I wear a pair of comfortable jeans and t-shirts most of the time.  I hardly ever wear anything that could even show a hint of belly (I'm slightly self-conscious because I'm definitely not where I want to be with my abs- they were so much tighter before the baby, and it's hard to get them back there).  I don't wear jeans where my underwear will stick out the top.  If I want to, I can clean up really well.  I hardly ever wear makeup (actually that reminds me that I really need to go through my makeup and cull a bunch of stuff that I NEVER use) and my nails are usually unpainted (unless my husband gets a wild hair up his ass and decides to paint them for me, which happens on occasion, and he always does some funky-awesome designs).

But my hair is a different story when it comes to colour.

I've been dying my hair since I was 14.  For the most part, it was always natural colours- I tried to at least respect that while I was in my parent's house.  Then as soon as I got out, I went into the Navy, so I definitely couldn't have anything unnatural (though I did use the spray kind of dye stuff to make my hair blue when I went to the Marilyn Manson concert).  Then after I got out, I couldn't do it because I had to find a job.  I stuck to conservative, natural colours (mostly auburns- red hair suits me pretty well). 

But for the next few years, I will not have to look for a job.  My husband will be working while I finish my degree.  Until I finish, I can do whatever the fuck I want to my hair.  Living in the south, I get some pretty damn weird looks from people because of my wild coloured hair.  Especially when I have my daughter with me.  I do my hair for me.  It's something I enjoy immensely, and the hubs definitely approves of it- in fact, he usually helps me dye it!  It's so hard to get the back by yourself...  :D 

So, yes.  I believe I will have blue tips, with a layer of purple above that, then a layer of pink above that, and keep the roots white.  I love messing with my hair colour... :D
