Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Monday, July 11, 2021

Some casual surfing today brought me to Blue Hair Dye. It’s as mundane as a blog can get: One girl’s attempt at tinging her hair blue. (Don’t let the dog’s narrative throw you.)

The subject brought to mind my own long-ago haircoloring exploits, back in high school. I’ll more-or-less repeat what I commented on the aforementioned blog:

I’ve never actually dyed my hair. However, in high school (edging onto 20 years ago), I occasionally would color my hair punk-style red with some sort of spray-on stuff, so it wouldn’t be unusual for people to see me with some funky coloration on my head.

The thing was, my natural color was deep, deep black. So black that, if the light was hitting me just right (usually from behind), my hair would get this bluish tinge to it. Some, like The Jades, might even call it “Blue Black Hair”. People would see that, and assume I was coloring my hair again — only this time, blue!

Ah, what a cheeky little monkey I was… Fact is, my hair is still pretty damned black, even with more and more grey starting to emerge. Maybe I should start looking into that blue dye…
