I did promise my hair wouldn’t be brown anymore, didn’t I?!
Yep, I am blonde again.
If you’ve been following my hairventures since the get-go, I was blonde for about six months last year.
This photo is from January of last year. I was blonde until March or so, actually – so essentially a whole year passed being unblonded. I actually joked that last year I went through a range of Game of Thrones-related hair: I started the year a Targaryen, then I was kissed by fire, and finally, a Baratheon, black of hair.
Which means I’m a Targaryen again!
And that actually ties into why I’m blonde again.
If you see from the previous linked post – January of last year – I quit being blonde because it’s expensive. My hair is very dark naturally, and apparently grows super fast. I had noticeable roots within a week of dyeing this time around. James and I were talking a few months back, and he was saying how part of the reason he loves Daenerys Targaryen, of Game of Thrones fame, is because of her white hair. Emilia Clarke, her actress, has even said that the best, most empowering part of playing Dany is her wig. There’s something about that stand-out, unnatural white.
So, when I pined about my long lost white hair, James offered to help me pay for it. The only time he saw my white hair was the first time we met; afterwards I had red and black. He was curious, I was pining, and voila. Because I am poor and he is
usually not, upkeep is shared.
And I get to be blonde again!
Maybe next time we’ll add funky colours again. We shall see! 😀
