Love That Fire
When I was younger, I hated my red hair so much! I used to pour lemon juice on it and sit in the sun for hours. I was told how rare it was and how one day I would love it.
I never believed them.
I spent my younger years living in Hawaii (in the mid 1970′s) and I was the only redhead for miles and miles. I would burn like crazy and my freckles would darken and people really thought I was from another planet. In fact, I had the nickname, “Red haired freckled face freak from mars.”
I think I started to somewhat like my hair color when I was around 19. I would dye it bright, bright red. In fact, I would bleach it first and dye it fire engine red. It was great fun and I wonder if it helped me learn to love my natural red hair even more.
The past ten years, I have truly learned to appreciate the beauty of being a redhead!
