Tasha’s hair journey- Color, hawk, and buzzed.

Screen Shot 2014-10-21 at 1.20.50 PMThe first time I had pink hair, in January of 2009. I was home on winter break during college. I bleached my hair, intending to just get some red out that I’d put in a few months prior, but I completely fried it. My hair felt spongy when it was wet, and totally tangled and brittle when dry. I did some research and used a keratin conditioner, which helped a lot. The pink absorbed really well though! I didn’t touch up my roots ever during this time, but I kept the pink up for about 8 months, even doing purple at one time.

I used Got2Be Glued hair spray (the can looks like an air horn). My hair is very fine, so it held very well like that. I kept the mohawk for about 4 months and then got tired of putting it up all the time.

It felt great and I loved having no-hassle hair. It was really liberating. It also gave me a chance to learn to love my face. I used to hide in a lot of make-up and I’m still uncomfortable looking in the mirror most days, but when I buzzed my head, I was kind of forced to look at myself. I started to see beauty where I had never noticed it.
