Why Dye Ky? FAQ about my hair.
I’ve always been asked these questions. It is fitting since unnatural hair colors aren’t really a thing around these parts.
TO GET ATTENTION?
Maybe at some point, yes, it’s just so that I could have my own signature look. As some of my favourite designers and style icons have outrageous hair colors. It’s also so that people could easily identify me and the work that I do.
WHAT IS IT LIKE TO BE A WEIRDO IN GENSAN
Well, sometimes it could be such a pain in the ass. People you don’t know would randomly touch your hair, which by the way is extremely in appropriate! They could take a strand of my hair and use it for hexes for all I know. Neanderthals cat call you out with whistles or “psssssttt!!! hoy pink!!! hooy!!!” AUGH. Well everything has its down sides.
WHAT HAIR COLOR DO YOU USE?
Mostly Manic Panic. It was the brand that got me started, as my style icons praised and used this brand. But I also have Directions and Sparks. Looking to try out more brands soon.
WHERE DO YOU BUY THEM?
Mostly at hottopic.com. Sometimes my cousins send me some from the US.
WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR ROOTS BLEACHED?
I used to DIY it, but sometime get lazy and get it done at the salon. Here in Gensan I get them done at Celine’s salon and Envy Me salon.
AREN’T YOU WORRIED ABOUT THE DAMAGE COLORING AND BLEACHING DOES TO YOUR HAIR?
Nope, I’m not. I know there’s (literally and figuratively) a price to pay to maintain my hair style. But human hair is just made out of keratin and dead skin cells. So its already dead. Hahaha!!! Anyway it grows back, so no worries.
HOW DAMAGED IS YOUR HAIR? (Oh my!)
Well its a bit dry, but thats what happens when you strip the black pigments off it. But I’m relieved to say that its not as dead as it looks. lol. I just don’t brush it, thats why it looks thin. Cuz whenever I brush it, I look like Hermionie Granger from the H.P Sorcerers Stone days…
HOW DO YOU TREAT YOUR HAIR?
I deep condition it 3x a week. And shampoo it twice a week. Hot oil or treatments twice a week too. For these rituals (lol) DOVE HAIR PRODUCTS are the best. <3 Before bed I also coat my hair with a bit of argan oil.
DON’T YOU HAVE ANY PLANS IN GROWING BACK YOUR DARK BROWN HAIR?
Erm… Nothing is set in stone. As of now I don’t have any plans. But who knows, maybe tomorrow I’d get sick of it and cut it all off! HAHAHA!!!
