I remember the first time I highlighted or dyed my hair in middle school. I liked it because I didn’t care for my natural hair colour, which is super dark brown to the point it looks black. I actually liked how I looked in lighter shades, so I became quite notorious for dyeing my hair or highlighting my hair almost every year since then. But now? I’ve grown to like my natural hair. It took me about seventeen years, but I finally like it.
The last time I dyed my hair was in April 2014. That was when I did the most daring thing — I dyed the tips of my hair purple. And before that, I had a digital perm in September 2013. So back then, not only did I not like my natural hair colour, but I also didn’t like its straightness.
But I digress. I’ve learned to like my hair the way it is. Heck, I don’t even mind the few white hairs I have. I’ve grown to be content with its colour and its straightness. I don’t have to do anything high maintenance with my hair. In fact, everything in these photos of my hair is all natural. I didn’t even style them, to be honest. Even my fringe (aka bangs) is all “natural”. I have this habit of constantly swiping my fringe on my left side to the left, and it just stays like that on its own, hence its “natural” state XD
Maybe it’s because I’m now in my 30s that I no longer care to do anything with my hair, nor do I want to deal with the cost and the actual process. Or maybe I’ve just finally learned to accept and like parts of me I didn’t really care for before. Whatever’s the case, I like my natural hair and my awesome fringe that has a mind of its own. Plus, my hair is healthy. It no longer feels rough from all the years of abuse.
Do you currently have natural hair? Do you like your natural hair? What is the most craziest thing you’ve done to your own hair?
