"I started dying my hair at a young age because my mom and sister dye their hair (and we often dyed each other’s, for better or worse) and it’s always been really fun. It’s a Texas thing to have great hair, or at least try to. If you are in Texas and you don’t make an effort with your hair it can be socially catastrophic. It can be a pain but not in any way that makes me want to stop.
I’ll admit I was disappointed when I started to see gray because for me it indicated aging, but not ugliness. And it just brought even more attention to the stress I’ve felt in the last few years which made me sad."
