Dirty Blonde – To Dye or Not to Dye.

Do blondes have more fun?  Are brunettes smarter?  And does it really matter the color of your hair?  Or are you like me, someone who suffers from hair color anxiety?Yup, that’s me in the corner with unnatural darkened hair.  Yup, that’s me on the dance floor with my darkened locks seducing you, moving you, exciting you.    I’m a natural ‘ Dirty Blonde,’ a natural healer, eater and love maker but I’m still dirty and I don’t like it one iota.  I’ve set chemicals to my hair for over two decades always wanting that extra depth and darkness.  But eventually the light would seep in, slowly at first.  Then increasing ten-fold within the next few weeks.  And only six to eight weeks after I would set chemical to my hair … again.  I’ve always felt better with darker locks.  I’ve had almost every color on the spectrum.  Blue-black, Violet-black, black, espresso, dark brown, brown, light brown, bright orange, bleach blonde and yes even my natural dirty blonde.  However in the last few years I have strayed from this destruction to nature as I haven’t found it necessary and I’ve enjoyed toying with my new lighter locks ( I’ve also started thinking about the contents of the dye box and how much it costs to make (which is pennies), but to buy it on the shelf in a chain superstore would cost $15-$20 Dollars and or Euro.)  Maybe it comes with territory, but I look/feel better as a dirty blonde on the beaches in this island paradise.  And I’m finally realizing, that I must do what nature intended and what my frugal sensibility taught me.  I choose Not To Dye and NO To Buy.  Forget the hype – Go Natural.  Even naked … it’s ok.

I also happened upon this really informative website.

My dye-ing days are over.  After so many years of believing in this ‘magic potion,’  I can finally say that I will never dye again!  I’m embarrassed to have fallen for this marketing ploy, I think it’s disgusting that our governments allow this twisted sense of terrorism.  It’s time to get back to nature, see what really counts in the circle of life and to forget about the big corporations out there trying to steal my money, and just go for a run.

  1. Not using dye is a hard sell to women who have bought into the call of the beauty industry. And as women age, they believe they can hold onto their youth by hiding their real hair colour.
    I hope you can hang onto your resolve when the grey starts to creep in!
