Okay y'all. I want to share something personal with you today. I DYED MY HAIR PURPLE. For some of you that my be news to you, others it may just be another annoying reminder because I am OBSESSED with how it turned out! #sorrynotsorry.
What many of you probably don't know is WHY I did it. In the end of October 2018, my husband and I started a weight loss journey together. I told my mom, "when I lose 50 pounds, I'm going to dye my hair purple." (spoiler alert: I lost 50 pounds and now I have purple hairs.) So I did it!
When I was in California visiting my family, I messaged my good friend Corina at The House of Beauty and told her to turn me purple!!! She went above and beyond my expectations! I could have never imagined that I would love 80% of my head covered in purple.
Now I know this isn't like a super crazy change... Okay maybe it is.... But I have had some people who say "oh your hair looked prettier the way it was before" or "is it because you are trying to cover up your insecurities?" And the answer is NO! If anything, I have felt the most beautiful, confident and HAPPY that I have in..... EVER!!! I didn't get purple hair because I thought I was ugly. I didn't get it because I have low self-esteem. I got it because it makes ME happy.
I have heard many times, "if you were a color, you'd be purple!" and coincidentally, it's my favorite color. I don't know if anyone else can relate, but I just feel "complete" and like "me" with purple hair. I lost 50 pounds, and that's a huge accomplishment for me: a person who has ALWAYS struggled with her weight and thought she could never do it but she proved herself wrong. Having purple hair makes me smile and I feel it fits my spunky, loud, goofy and outgoing personality. So I #treatedmyself and got a -50LBS makeover!
So the day I dyed my hair, I also did my makeup so I was feeling myself. I was looking cute af y'all. So my husband grabbed my camera and we had a photoshoot. Here is the result:
