I normally get the "is that your natural color" question. I get it a lot since I started using henna, because the color does look subtle enough to be real and it mostly blends with my roots. But I also got the same question when my hair was bleached white/blue-black/purple-red, or highlighted. "Uhhh. No."
I also got a lot of really rude questions when I had my head shaved.
"Are you a neo-Nazi?"
"Isn't that cold?"
"You look like a boy."
"That looks weird."
I always got that kind of comment from young children. Older people, on the other hand, would always well up with tears and thank me for donating to cancer. It was always really cute.
Growing out from ill-advised head-shave. Patiently awaiting a day when detangling is an issue.
Pixie | Ear | Chin | Collarbone | Shoulder | APL | BSL
Yeppers, 50 years here too. My hair is an antique.
"What color do you use?"
From my aunt who I love dearly.
"You can't buy this in a box!" I said with a smile... but I can't blame her, this is the first time since I was 14 that my entire head/whole length is untouched with color.
Very new goals this time around...
Let's see...one of the "dumb" comments that comes to mind:
"Why bother growing your hair long? Don't you get split ends when it rubs against your butt?"
I'm sorry, but I didn't think split ends were a curse upon people with long hair, or more specifically those who have reached that particular length.
"Your hair looks like nothing when it's up like that, there's no way it goes to your waist, man..."
