My Hair Story with Herbal Essences

10.17.2017


I don’t know about you guys, but for me, hair is everything. When you get a bad haircut, it’s a catastrophe. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve cried after a bad experience at the salon. When your hair looks amazing, on the other hand, you feel absolutely on top of the world. Hair has the power to change the way you feel about yourself. For me, I grew up thinking of my hair as a part of my identity. My mom is Scottish and my sister, mom and I all have blonde hair. I grew up in Southern California where everyone has blonde. When I got older we moved several times and it was hard on me. I felt like I didn’t know who I was and wanted to rebel. One night at a summer camp I poured cheap pink hair dye all over my head. After that I went for dark brown hair, then later red hair with chunky blonde highlights. At the time I felt like changing my hair and my style was the only way to feel in control of myself, of my life. I struggled with depression and self-esteem. Once I started college, I decided to return to blonde. It felt like a weight was lifted off my shoulders and I could finally be myself in my own skin. It was liberating. Since then, I’ve stayed blonde of course varying between ashy blonde, golden blonde or strawberry but always blonde. Herbal Essences reached out to ask me to be a part of their new campaign centered on Hair Changes, I was excited to share more about my hair changes over the years. The video really spoke to me, showing how changing their hair in turn changed their lives. What’s your hair story? Let me know in the comments below!
