I like dying my hair a deep mahogany red.
It makes me stand out, and hints at a bright personality that I’m still trying to fit into.
It’s a great conversation starter –
People will stop me in the streets to tell me how much they love the colour of my hair.
What I like most about dying my hair red is covering my old growth,
And watching my dark curly roots slowly twist their way out of my scalp.
It’s as if my hair is telling me,
“No matter how hard you try, you can never erase the loveliest parts of yourself.”
In time, who you really are will always reveal itself.
