I am back to blond now, with a bleached white streak in the front part that I added a few years back when I got tired of natural looking hair and discovered the first bunch of grey hair right in this area. ‘I will not only accept, I will embrace and enhance it’ was probably my motivation, who knows, maybe I just needed a change or I was tired of people not recognizing me. Whatever reasons I had, a little bit of Cruella de Vil never hurts, so I grabbed the cheapest ++++ extra strong bleach that the drugstore offered and felt that thrill again the moment it landed on my front hair. Never regretted it. It’s still not platinum blond, it damages my hair, but it makes me feel good every time I use. ‘So sad’ you might think ‘is that the right way to boost your self-esteem?’ Not sad at all, I reply, it is daring, rebellious, non-conformist! What starts with a streak of your hair, might help the world finally understand who you want to be. Especially if you are 14 years old and do an enviable perfectly copper beech ombré all by yourself, for the first time, including bleaching and overdying (and you are probably not even fully aware that it’s permanent).That is a big step and that is showing the world something, even if you still don’t know what it is. Welcome to my world.
