I have always hated my hair. I think most women want hair opposite of what they have. My hair is fine, stick straight, and tends to get oily quickly. Of course, I would love to have thick, dry hair, with a natural soft curl to it. However, that’s not going to happen, so I’ve decided to try to make peace with the hair I have.
Over the years, I have dyed my hair many different colors to try to make it more interesting. My hair has been light blonde to dark blonde, copper, auburn, light brown, medium brown, and (most recently) strawberry blonde. I began dying it it when I was in high school, so I didn’t really know what my real color actually was. When I got married in the spring, I started thinking about my future family. I don’t want my bad self esteem to have an affect on my future children. I want to embrace my natural hair and stop spending countless hours obsessing over different colors and wasting ridiculous amounts of money chasing probably unattainable shades.
