Getting my hair colored has got me happy.
I shaved my dread locs in October 2017. I had my dread locks from 2012-2017. I shaved my locs because I wasn’t taking care of it.People LOVED my shaved head compared to my locs. So it finally grew on me and I’ve been loving it. Then I decided to dye my hair…. I never thought I would bleach my hair. But I wanted that shock factor! So in April, I died my hair purple and magenta! It came out very dope!! And as time went, the colors were fading and changing to new colors all the time! Now I’m dying my hair like nobody’s business. I’ve had purple, blonde (twice because so far its my favorite) and this weekend, I will do antique rose.
The first five years in my 30’s felt like I was living. I don’t know if it was because of my locs. Maybe it was my 7 month move to Ghana. (which I will tell you about one day) But I felt a whole other sense of confidence. Now I’m 36 with a shaved head. Which by the way I never considered, and now I have a whole new set of confidence. I truly feel like this is a midlife crisis in a new way. Or a different approach. I cant explain it. Were you in your 20s or 30s when you felt a new sense of confidence? And what brought it on?
