Some people have perfect hair genes. Me? Well, let’s just say I don’t. I don’t have terrible hair genes, either, but let me put it this way. I have four brothers, and they all started to go bald before they were 30. It’s not the best hair gene pool, Thankfully, even though hair does mean a lot to me, I do not set that much stock by it. If something happens, I don’t think I will freak out.
Case in point: I dyed my hair blonde a while ago, and some time after the dye job I saw colors that were a lot more yellow, borderline orange. These were starting to show up all over my head, and I wasn’t sure what was causing it. The truth is that later on I find this is a fairly common problem. Not for all blondes, perhaps, but pretty popular nevertheless. If there was anything I wanted, it was a good hair day. When I walk out with happy hair, my whole day can change for the better. There is nothing like leaving the house with confidence, and that is something which sometimes, not all the time but sometimes, hair can provide. Why? Because whether we would like to admit it or not, hair is a part of who we are. And, once again, whether we choose to admit it or not, some of us set a lot of stock on hair. This is true to first impressions, to more lengthy ones, and for male/female attraction in particular.
If I am going out into the dating world (and I am right now), I want to look my best. This is not a question of vanity, but of putting your best foot forward. I believe in that. I believe in giving a good first impression, and I am also of the belief that we humans let ourselves judge and be judged by such things. It is part of who we are. In my “looking so good people will be throwing themselves at me” routine, there is also purple shampoo (MapleHolistic.com), which I use once a week. I use it because I was told – and I saw – that when I use purple shampoo there is less chance of any colors interfering with the golden glopbe which is my hair. I like my coffee strong, my bagels hot, and my hair nice and blonde. I remember wanted to dye it blonde all throghout my childhood, but my foloks wouldn’t hear of it. Hey, don’t look at me like that. We all have some daddy issue skeletons in our closet. Another product I use a lot is baking soda. Well, no, not a lot, but regularly, even several months. I do a baking soda rinse and I condition with apple cider vinegar. Not too be overdone, by the way. Do that only ever few months. Purple shampoo as well, should be used only now and then, and not every day.
Have fun, stay blonde, stay free, stay purple!
