So my boyfriend hates my redhair! We've been together almost 8 years and he's always seen me with blonde highlights (to start) and then after years of highlighting it, it went blonde all the way. I got sick of paying almost $80 every month an 1/2 to fix my roots. So I went natural. I just started loving my hair; I had a bad childhood with being a redhead (that's why I went blonde) but he looks at me like it's gross and tells me I need to go back blonde. He actually had the nerve to ask me if I didn't care about my appearance anymore. He's even willing to pay for me to go back blonde because he hate's it so much. I mean is redhair really that ugly in a guy's view. Be honest.. It won't hurt my feelings, I hear it everyday at home lol. I know he loves me. He tells me I'm pretty, but he also tells me I look better blonde. I don't really have freckles, they're mostly on my arms. He doesn't complain about them, or my green eyes, he just hates my hair!! Help lol...
As a natural redhead I understand wanting to change your hair color cause I have had my hair almost every color under the sun however I have noticed a lot of guys and girls hit on me more as a redhead than when I had my hair black for example. If he is so crazy about your hair color then find a new man! Red hair isn't ugly its just a rare color. People I think are used to the question which is hotter blonde or brunette yet they leave out red head and while we all have a preference there are many colors of hair that we are all born with. That boyfriend of yours sounds like he doesn't love you for you, that is YOUR hair color. some things we can change but its a pain and gets expensive. its up to you because its your body, to stay as your natural red or go back to being blonde but if you love your hair leave it be. Its your scalp not his that is taking the chemicals from the dye.
So... he doesn't like you for you then is what you're saying. Looks matter that much to him? It's fake his interest in you then because red is your natural color right? You're going to dye your hair for the rest of your life just for him? That's the real issue here. Did he really not know that was your natural color for 8 years!!! ? Wow. But to answer, most guys love red hair but all guys have preferences, some I'm sure (like your bf) don't like it. If you left him you'd have no trouble finding another guy WITH your natural hair color. Redheaded guys (like me) on the other hand have it far worse! lol
He sounds like a fuckwit.. red hair is awesome.! P. S people who have a gene in them that gives them red hair are genetically superior than others who dont.. you will not get sick as much and will live longer.! ;)
Nooooooooo, i love redheads, best hair color ever, so cute
Personally i find red hair hotter than blonde hair.
But I -understand- his reaction. Because if i started dating a natural blonde who died her hair red, and then she let it go natural? I'd be really disappointed. And i'd half feel guilty for caring, and i'd half feel hurt that she didn't care about trying to attract me.
Yes it is ugly. That is why most girls with red hair are either super hot, or really ugly. Super hot girls can look good with any color hair. The majority of girls can not pull off any color of hair. That is why there are so few average looking girls with red hair. An average looking girl can't pull off the look of having red hair.
Alright. Listen chica. I'm gonna drop some Luce advice on ya.
Just... don't. It's your hair. If he doesn't like the fact that you have red hair then he can go fuck himself. Red hair is gorgeous and I would kill to have naturally red hair. I'm actually planning on dying my hair red over the summer before I go back to school. If you feel confident as a red head (not taking into account how your boyfriend's comments make you feel about it) then it doesn't matter what he thinks or what anyone else thinks. If you like your red hair and don't want to spend that much money on keeping it blonde then that's your choice.
But do keep an eye out. The fact that your boyfriend is telling you that he likes you better blonde is a potential red flag. If it's making you feel less confident in yourself then it definitely is. And if that's the case you need to sit down and talk with him about how it's making you feel and how you need it to stop. If he doesn't understand or just keeps pressing then I think you may have a problem on your hands.
Wow what an asshole. If he wants a blonde chick he should get a blonde chick. What was he expecting? He doesn't need to go this far so I would leave him if all he cares about is your appearance and not your happiness.
Red hair is beautiful! I'm going to the salon today to dye my hair red. Your boyfriend is being a jerk. If it bothers him that much, then it's time to find a new boyfriend who can appreciate your naturally beautiful hair color.
Wtf I'm a ginger too and I fucking love my hair. If your man has such a distaste for it that he would offer to pay for you going blonde again, then tell him to shove it. It is part of you and your personality. If he insults it then he ---probably--- isn't that great of a guy :/ there are tons of fish in the sea who would cherish those copper locks as much as you should
