Really, it's not that your color is so bright, it's that it is a bold-neon color. Which means it is strong and not faded, which keeps them still looking dark, but with it being neon, it makes that bold color pop in its darkness.
If you were liking the lighter shade, it would be more like pale rose and violet and such, but then you get a faded color but brighter and I don't think they can be neon.

The vibrancy of the hair dye color never lasts long... but I was speaking in terms of my color preferences in general and not just specific to my hair color ;) I do like darker purples and violets, and lavender, the bluer shades of purple, but have noticed over time that everything has lightened up... Many years ago when I started wearing more purple more often and then all the time (almost thirty years now) it was mostly the darker shades. Lavender and mauve are a great combination. When I was 15 or 16, I was allowed to paint my bedroom any colour I wanted, and that is how I did it, with the ceiling cut on a diagonal and the window sill and door frame the contrasting shade of the wall. Every stick of furniture was painted those two shades of purple as well :)

Did your favorite colors change over the years?
At the youngest time, I was about 4 and my favorite color was yellow then pink. heh. People called me girly but I mostly hung out with girls. When someone asked me to draw a picture of my favorite color, I drew a banana. Afterwards, my favorite was red, then navy blue, now purple-blue.

In my profession, I deal with colors in light rays, as opposed to pigments, so it is quite different... magenta in light rays is very pink looking. I do like dusty rose as a color to wear, and fuchsia… but not often enough to have much of them in my wardrobe LOL.

I used to wear a lot of teal green, and also a muted auburn color. Even beige and black LOL. Yellow and/or red did not suit, unless it was an orangey red :giggle: Blue sometimes, and blue jeans were pretty much a daily wear, though I have not worn blue jeans for many years, now :)

I miss my purple room... :'(
There are non-toxic wall or room paints out now.(Link)
I love blue so when I was a few years younger than now I painted my room different hues of blue. The ceiling a light blue because it looks like the sky and it makes even a small room seem bigger. And the walls different shades as well. Dark on one wall, medium on another, electric on the one near my closet.
Then I got this beige gray color area rug that was really soft with long pile. Today I use the My Pillow and My Mattress topper on my bed, which weren't available back then. Had they been I'd have slept even better. But when I awoke to a room of my favorite colors, with mini-blinds and room darkening light color drapes, I was ready to meet the day.

I think if you sleep in a place you absolutely love and that reflects your personal spirit, tastes, it makes for a sanctuary any time of day.
Potted plants are natural air filters. So I had a bunch of potted plants set up on different levels, like stacked, in one corner of my room where two windows met together and gave them the most light. If I could have worked from home..... :D

I don't wear my favorite color heh I can't stand the feeling of blue jeans much. I can now more than I could as a kid though, but it is so rough and doesn't keep you warm in the winter. I see girls wear them now much more than boys, when it used to be girls always wore skirts and dresses and guys wore jeans more.

I’m 50.

Underneath it’s completely white now.

So I dye it purpley with a blond streak to one side!
It’s either that or look like an old age pensioner!
I’m too young to go for the pensioner lol just yet. Lol

How do i say this? If your goal is to hide the looks of your age, that's not a better thing you could be doing with your hair.

I'd say you should take pride in your old age features. Sure, being younger, sexy, healthier and more physically attractive is a wonderful thing, but the older you get can be a sign you are blessed and lived through many experiences the younger haven't. Your hair could be a wonderful symbol instead of hiding it. It would make me feel like "I may be ugly, but I've come this far, that I know God has been taking care of me for many decades. I'm 50, to not be killed by all the chances there could be in this world today, that is a blessing, to still be here to be with my grandchildren and family and friends all these years is a blessing. I've learned a lot that I can teach other younger people so they will be prepared to live up to my age."

Hi guys, I've never posted a thread before so please be kind!

I'm 18 and since I was around 14 I've been dying my hair. And no, not just simple natural colours like brown, black and blonde - CRAZY colours. I've been pink, purple, blue, and a choppy mix of all three of those. I just want to know - is there a biblical perspective to say this isn't right? I no longer want to do it if I am not permitted to by God.
I have not read anywhere in the Bible where hair colouring was declared a sin..

From a personal perspective i avoid woman with crazy hair colours because it is usually a warning sign that the woman is crazy, :LOL:

So don't be concerned as far as God goes with your hair colouring..

it's weird how there are two different sets of primary color groups for pigment & for light, isn't it?
wonder why God made the universe this way? dust has one basis of color, and light, another

Back in the early to mid 80's, Dale Bozzio from the band "Missing Persons" was well known for dying her hair multiple colors and it seemed pretty radical back then.



In the lyrics of one of her songs "Words" she says, "I think I'll dye my hair blue." Today, it seems much more common to dye your hair different colors. I deliver mail to three different hair salons and it's common for me to see teenagers and young ladies with pink, purple, bright red, green or blue hair and sometimes a mixture of multiple colors.
