Have you ever considered getting blue hair? For what reason? "It'll be so cool!" "It's my favorite color!" "I want to look like *insert character* from *insert show/movie*!" Well unnaturally colored hair is pretty awesome in my opinion, but there are some things you should know before you start sporting a bright green head.
Having an unnatural hair color can be a pretty cool experience. I've come to really love my purple hair. Some pros, other than the cool-factor, include:
-Compliments from strangers
-A sort of unique look (depending on the color you choose)
-You can match things to your hair, like nails/makeup
-People take more of an interest in you
-Narrow minded people will usually avoid you
-Little kids are just fascinated by colorful hair, and it's adorable to watch them look at it
-Increased confidence (in my case, at least)
While unnaturally colored hair can be a fun thing, it also has a few issues that may make you rethink buying that first bottle of pink dye.
-Hair dye can be expensive (I have long, thick hair, so I need to buy 3 bottles, totaling $30 to dye all of my hair purple at home)
-You have to keep dying it frequently, because these color aren't totally permanent. They fade, and some brands fade quicker than others. Redying it often can damage your hair if you aren't careful and take very good care of it.
-A lot of people will judge you. You may find your hair color cool, along with many other people, but there are plenty of jerks out there to bring you down for something that is none of their business.
-Some businesses have dress codes that include banning colorful hair, so you may want to speak to your boss before coloring your hair
If you're considering an unnatural hair color, and you have no problem with the cons listed, I say go for it. I was hesitant about coloring my hair also, but I took the leap and dyed it over a year ago and I couldn't be happier with how it turned out!
