    I wanted to dye my hair blue after my military service, but I chose otherwise. I've learned that dying your hair is extremely damaging to it and since I wanted to grow out my hair I saw that as counter-productive.

    You should also avoid too much water, especially public swimming pools with lots of chemicals. I knew a girl who went on vacation and dyed her hair blue. She went to swimming on the beach and swimming pool daily and it changed her hair colour slowly from a strong blue to a washed-out greenish cyan. On top of that, she had stains of blue colour on her body and cloths.


    So, no. It's interesting but I think it's making more problems than it is worth it.

For example, green was ok but only when more or less fresh, after a few washes it was dull, I looked sick; mixed (to make "ombre") pink/tulip/purple looked simply stunning with my complexion, the unicorn's hair that I mentioned before, when fresh it didn't suit me too well, great colours but not for my natural hair- after washing it out though- >stunning pastels that were perfect for me.

    And yes, I imagine that light colours are the worst in maintenance...

    Anyway, I think it's worth it. I do not regret.
    Agree. I loved the pink but I have pink tones in my skin all it looked weird if I didn't have makeup on to even it out but teal made my skin look great. Color theory is real!

    I don't regret it. The only reason I stopped doing colors is because I developed a pretty moderate allergic reaction to the product that pulled the old color out when I wanted to change to a new one. I love the grey/white, it's actually the best looking "color" I've ever done but after this, I'll probably be done. I guess. Who knows.

    As for hair damage, again, here's where your life changes: if you take care of it, it will reduce damage. Special products, deep conditioning masks, etc. That's why I don't do my own. I spend A LOT of money annually to make sure my hair doesn't break (it's only happened once in 20 years and it was after pulling out the aforementioned teal. Or rather trying to.) Also I have extremely thick, coarse hair so I can get away with a lot. If you have fine hair, it might be problematic.

    I would say between getting my hair done and maintaining it ie products just to keep it healthy, I spend approximately $1,500 a year. Rough estimate. I don't like to think about that part

    Yes, coloring correctly without damage is expensive.
    You need the right conditioner + shampoo + treatments, and should get it done by someone who is experienced and understands the chemical reactions that occur.

    When I was younger I used to want to color my hair and couldn't because of work.
    Now, it doesn't matter and started last year. Black/Red-crimson, alternating.

    Dye it black, darling. Get a small tattoo. This should sufficiently satisfy ("whatever") urge(s) are occurring at this time.

    And no; "green/blue" hair is atrociously [h i d e o u s].

    I find dyed hair (and tattoos) sexy, but I'd probably make some assumptions about the sort of girls who looked this way.

    I want denim lowlights (or highlights). I am not a big fan of unnatural hair colors, but I like it when it looks almost like it belongs there, like maybe your hair is actually a little bit blue, which means it has to be a little bit toned down. I also hate attention so it sounds nice.

    My problem is that I've co-washed for years now (I only use the cleansing agents in conditioner to wash my hair most of the time, and shampoo when my hair starts to hang limp and not stay clean for very long, which takes about 2-5 weeks). I don't know anyone else who does this, and I don't know how my routine would have to change or if I would want to. I don't mind shampooing right at first, obviously, but I don't want to be shampooing 5xs more than usual. I have yet to do any research though. If I find out I can continue co-washing, I will probably go through with it.

    Edit: actually it looks like co-washing might be good for colored hair.

    Why, the entire reason I dye my hair and got tattooed is so people would know to make assumptions about me!

    Being objectified is just a bonus

    Not really sure if that's a joke or not but I see noting wrong with making assumptions about things like this because a person obviously made a conscious decision to look a certain way and so that does in some way reflect their personality.

    What would the assumptions be?

    Oh God dammit I have the best meme response to this but I can't post it on a PG board.
