Coloring My Hair Skyrocketed My Confidence

I was bright, vibrant, and had never felt better in my life!

I’m the type of person who’s always blended into the background. Just your average brown-haired gal. Other than my loud mouth...nothing has really made me stick out, besides my hair!

I lit up every room I walked into...LITERALLY

When you have purple hair it’s hard not to be the center of attention. Every time I went somewhere people would start looking at me.

I started thinking, DAMN! I must look good!

Then I realized, it was because I looked like a walking eggplant…and I freakin loved it!

Not only did my hair light up a room, but so did my personality. I gained so much self-confidence to the point where my smile was brighter than my hair. I felt so fucking fierce.

I had always been self-conscious about the way I looked, never thinking I was beautiful enough. While my insecurities didn't prompt my drastic color change, my hair certainly caused them to fade away. Every worry I had about the way I looked, vanished the same way my natural color did.

I ROCKED that bright AF hair.

I used to be afraid to ask for ketchup at a restaurant or walk into class late. I felt like with every move I made all eyes were on me. All I wanted to do was seamlessly blend in. But after coloring my hair I wasn’t afraid anymore. I didn’t feel like anyone was judging my personality because I knew damn well they were only looking at my hair.

I had control!

Something to know about me is that I’m a huge control freak. I need to be in control of everything in my life. When I lose control my anxiety blows out of proportion.

You know what the one thing I could control was? You guessed it, MY HAIR!

Coloring my hair gave me both the physical, and mental, control I had needed.

I could do whatever I wanted to my head. And that freedom was exhilarating! I could wear it straight, curly, or change it to any color of the rainbow. And the tranquility this little piece of power gave me was insane.

I felt so powerful showing off my purple locks without a care in the dang world. Was I walking around looking like a troll doll? Yes I was, and I LOVED it.

This new sense of self-ownership made my confidence go up a shit ton. Once I broke the bond between me and my boring brown hair, anything was possible.

So take the risk!

Coloring my hair a vibrant ass color has been the best experience of my life. I used to be so afraid to stick out in a crowd. I hated when people looked at me, with a burning passion. I never would have imagined that a little pop of color would brighten up my world so much.

I became the purple goddess I was meant to be!

If you’ve ever thought about coloring your hair I HIGHLY recommend it. Find a color you love and go to a salon, or d.i.y that shit at home!

I have colored mine and my friends' hair plenty of times in a dorm room and it's way cheaper than dropping $200; and the results were amazing (if I do say so myself)!

Experiment with something new! I’m not saying you have to dye your hair bright purple, but if you're feeling a little bland and want to change up your look, go for it!

Grab your bestie and a box of hair dye and have a blast!!!
