About a month ago, I decided to dye the bottom half of my hair pink and purple. One of my insta-friends wanted to see and I sent her a picture privately. I told her I didn’t want to share it on my account because the “green police” would send me hate mail.
💚
But you know what? I want to be authentic here. I dye my hair pink. Some part of the hair on my head has been a crazy color for the better part of 6 years now. Many people don’t realize that super bright colors like this are often non-toxic and derived from vegetables. Unlike “normal” (black/brown/red) hair dye which can be derived from coal tar and often contain a lot of heavy metals and irritating chemicals like ammonia. 💚
I don’t want to pretend to you that I always make the extra-super-crunchiest choices ever. It’s a balance. Green choices have to actually work for you. Sometimes that means you make extra crunchy choices in one area and light green choices in another. And nobody should judge you (or send you “I can’t believe you call yourself a green blogger!” hate mail) for it.
❤💛💚💙💜
