New hair color
I dyed my hair reddish brown.

I felt the need for a change.

I look in the mirror and I don't recognize myself. It doesn't fit.

Honey: I know. I know. It's too dark. Have you noticed that I tend to dye my hair darker colors when we are separated? I have to look into the psychology behind this.

I'll probably go back to my usual platinum blond in a few weeks.

Aw, Clarity... what happened? :\

I dyed my hair dark brown once, too. I think it's a thing blondes do when they're depressed.

Change isn't necessarily bad. Besides, it's only hair you can always change it back.

You are lovely no matter your haircolor. ;)

i am sorry you don't like it, but i love the color. thanks for the pic!! :o)

and, i do think there is definitely something to the dying (or is it dyeing?) our hair when depressed/alone. it's funny you mentioned doing it when you are away from eric. i dyed mine when shane was in new zealand.

I quite like it, though I can see it's not very you, if you see what I mean - or at least, not how you feel most of the time!

I've been toying with the idea of dying my hair, but as a dye virgin, and with slightly... schizophrenic hair colouring to start with, I'm worried about making a mistake as my hair is the one bit of me I actually like. Plus, there's so much of it! I'd like to go more auburn - more Nicole Kidman in Practical Magic, and less Nicole in Days of Thunder!

Still, at least I don't have 80's crazy big hair. I just have hte same haircut as tiffanny did.

I should stop now, I think...

Lots of love and hope things are ok *hugs*

It's a psychological thing, it must be. I always feel the need to dye my hair when I'm not feeling 100%. I either go get it chopped off or dye it another color. You're lonley for Eric, and that will do it every time. *hug*

I am so sorry about not having written any earlier, You know it's the e-aversion thing.:) You should feel superbly special that you got me to write quite regularly at all. It must mean, that I am in quite a disarray over missing you, if it overwrides my internet-antipathy.

Ahh, my love, haircolour-smaircolour!
The pic looks quite lovely though.

I feel so honoured about the psychology behind it,despite being deeply disturbed about your depression. I wish I could just take it all on me; if I only could suffer twice as much and in turn have you chipper. Somehow I can always deal with my own being sad, alchemize into a deep German melancholy, which in turn can be breathed out through the lungs in heavy strokes. But when I hear, that you are suffering, it becomes this sharp sickening pain that leaves me helpless. -- Its like real hell as opposed to something thats just hard to get through.

I love you, I send you all the love
and strength I can, through a prayer through meditation. I'll start trying to fix the lack of teleportation-technology. I'll begin right now.

I love you, love you soooo much!
1.000.000 kisses!

I think it's a great haircolor and I've had it several times (close to it now) but I constantly change my hair (compare my Russia pictures to my current ones). I figure it's hair, it'll grow back.

lol i love that color. my hair is black and i tried to dye it that color once but it only got this wierd brownish color. and worst of all, i dont know why but it left my hair all dry and before it was soft and shiny, i'm just not good with the whole dyeing my hair thing.

Clarity, I love the chinchilla! I've never seen one before and they are funny looking little things aren't they?

I like the hair colour! I once had mine dark brown/red but it wasn't anything to do with psychology, it was because I trusted someone I shouldn't to dye it blond and that was all the hairdresser could do to cover up the badger-do the cow had inflicted on me.

Changing hair color, now that is something I know! I've changed hair color sooooo many times I don't have enough fingers to count! Right now my hair is exactly the color you've chosen, before it was black, I'm not sure I remember my real color anymore ;-) I usually change when I'm depressed, that or I chop it all off in the kitchen with a knife... yep, I don't know what it is with women and hair... and men... I like the color you've chosen, it's a bit hard to say if it suites you, but the color is cool. I personally am going to go blond... how blond I don't know yet, but I feel a blond period coming up. Take care!

*cracking up* I love it! Eric writes like a Brit!

God, I need something to do. :\

Oooo! I love the color! I'm thinking of dying my hair myself, with some henna. Auburn for my grey [now extremely visable with my new cut] and dark mahogany for the rest [the dark won't stick to grey, only plain henna will].

I like the red.

You probably dye your hair darker when Eric's not around because you don't want to stand out so much or attract as much attention. You want to keep yourself safe until his return.

That's my theory and I'm sticking to it!

Love you Clarity.
