Purple Hair, Puuu-urrrple Hair...

Here's something weird.

My hair is purple.

Okay, not hot, shocking violet. And no, I didn't dye or color it. It's just something I've noticed since I've let my hair be its natural color. (Before this blog, it was colored in almost every shade of red, brown and black possible.) My hair is basically black, but in the sun, it shines purple.

It's so weird.

I noticed this, of all places, in the car. I had the sunroof open on a sunny day, and when I looked up in the rear-view mirror to change lanes, I saw a red-violet/magenta-y kind of color reflecting in my strands.

"My hair is purple," I said to my friend, who was riding in the passenger seat.

"What?" She likely thought I lost my mind.

"My hair is purple," I said again. "Look. It's reflecting in the sun."

My friend looked. "Omigosh," she said. "Your hair is purple."

It's the weirdest thing I've discovered about my hair thus far. And I have no idea where it comes from. I mean, on one hand, it's kind of cool, but on the other hand, I really want to know how I ended up with hair that reflects violet.

Why is my hair purple? The world may never know.

Have you discovered anything about your hair that's out-of-the-ordinary?

i don't know when the last time you dyed your hair was, but it might be an overlay of different colors. black dyes often have a green or blue undertone. maybe that topped with one of your red dye jobs produced this magical effect, haha!

Natakue ~ That would have been true about two years ago, when I had every color imaginable in my hair. :-) But there's not a drop of rinse, dye or glaze on my strands now. I guess my follicles are just feeling creative.

I think that would be pretty cool! I think some people have black hair that shines blue too. Mine shines sort of brown I think. If its dry it looks gray.
