Colour hair

I realise something, when I walk along places like Sungai Wang or petaling street, I could see a lot of people having their hair colour in some striking colours like blonde, red, brown and some multiple colour. What makes someone colour their hair? Has it become a fashion thing? Or they are bored with their hair colour?

In the old days I have seen my mom colour her friend’s hair. She colour it black as she is having a lot of white hairs. In those days the only colour you could choose is black. I remember the stench from the colouring. According to my mother, the liquid is make of horse urine, I am not sure if that is true, hahaha but the smell is real bad. If it’s not horse urine it could be some other animal urine.

Now I could see a lot of colours being offered in the store like Watson, Guardian and etc. It’s almost in the range of rainbow colour. I guess some wants to become David Beckham, so they have their hair dye blond. Or some, who follows the Hong Kong fashion scene, will look at Sammi cheng for her red hair as inspiration. My wife colour hers almost every 3 months or so. My sister also did hers maybe every 4 to 5 few months.

My sister is one those who likes to look east to Hong Kong for the latest fashion. My wife does it because of her stubborn hair that turns white quite often. So far I have yet to jump into this bandwagon of wanting to become someone else or because of my hair turning white. So far in my 37 years of human lives I have only come across less than 5 white hairs. I remember there is once that was a lone ranger white hair standing in the middle of my big head. It did manage to get some comments from some of the thai staff who then ask my wife, why I did not cut it off. I reply it’s for good luck, hahaha ………… So what inspire you guys to have it done.

This is my wife while she is cooking......Look at the colour, its brownish.

This is my sister, a bit umm red I guess....

i did colour mine a few years back.It was either middle age crisis or plain stupidity as I resembled a monkey who plunged into a paint bucket. Girls did turned their heads but more of a mockery rather than being impressed..I coloured it Yellow by the way....

I used to have my hair in red streaks, like stop sign red, during my time working at a dot com. It's like a cult. HAHA.

But later on, I went back to original colors as everyone else changed their natural tints. Just to be a few Asian with the natural color. HAHAH. :-D

Nice blog, by the way. :)
