Well….. With as much as I dye my hair and run away from people who tell me I’m supposed to get my hair cut every couple months (when I’ve gone 3 years without a hair cut), it’s interesting to be where I am now. My entire hair color journey has led me to this point in which I am about to strictly cut out sulfates and parabens. I’m not sure if I’m ready for the whole “no-poo” thing yet, but I definitely need to focus on my health and all of these chemicals I throw into and on myself. With the worst acne I’ve ever had, a new case of eczema (something I never would have foreseen myself developing), and hair that just doesn’t look or feel the way I think it could or should, I’m just done. So many things we do to ourselves to maintain an appearance of healthiness, when we really should get to the root of the problem and chase after genuinely good health, not the facade.
Now, don’t get me wrong, I can’t stop dyeing my hair.. but that doesn’t mean I have to throw the entire health of my hair and body out of the window because I color treat every month and a half to two months. This is the only vessel I have until I go meet my Saviour, and I have a feeling that’s not going to be soon enough that I won’t look back and wish I took better care of myself.
