Ginger. Get your shades out.
Growing up through high school has been tough with such vibrant coloured hair -- insults and name calling down the corridors and passing on the stairs have really got me down in the past.
Because of this I dyed my hair about a year back and dyed it 7 times all different darker shades in about the space of 6 months as an attempt to blend into the crowd. It worked for a while, but then when I saw other gingers walking around school (there aren't many of us!) I felt I was letting them down and being a bad role model to those younger gingers out there as I am in my last year of high school. Seeing their bright hair made me miss mine terribly!
My old natural, gorgeously bright coloured hair is fully restored and now I am back to the only ginger in all of my family! - and I love it! I have learned to embrace my beautiful hair and grin at all the people that tease me about it to show them that it no longer gets to me!
I LOVE BEING GINGER! <3
