My secret isn’t hidden.
You can see it when you look at me.
Or maybe you can’t.
Because the secret is…
What is my true hair colour?
It used to be blond.
Then when I was 12 I dyed it for the first time and since then it has been almost every shade and brown, also some blacks and purples. Then in the last few years I finally jumped in and found blues, purples, pinks – mixed up shades. Enjoyed the weirdness/prettiness of washed out colours.
I still really want rainbow hair – but I don’t think that’s ever going to happen. It can be a dream for when I’m self-employed. Or rich.
Last week I went to the hairdresser and got it dyed again and I’ve not updated my twitter profile, so the new secret is. What’s my hair colour now?
Other wonderings are – will it ever be a natural colour again?
But mostly – what is my “natural” colour?
Or maybe the question is; why do I dye my hair?
What’s your hair secret?

She has a sharp brain and inquisitive nature, and knows all sorts of things about everyone. But when she is confronted with this terrible secret, she is utterly powerless to do anything. Though that might be about to change…
