I've had blue hair for two years now and I love it. I love how the color changes when I wash them too often or when I go out in the sun without a hat. I love that I can wear a black dress and still look colorful. But I have to admit that it is a constant struggle to have blue hair. I live in Athens, Greece and people are far from open minded, everytime I go out I have to deal with nasty comments and inexplicable behaviors. I am not sure if I can deal with this situation any longer and also I don't think that it's worth it. I prefer to keep myself away from this drama.
You might think that I am overreacting but I am really tired of people touching my hair or asking if I am wearing a wig. This is not funny any more and I am seriously thinking of dying my hair a more natural color. It is already hard being a woman so this is unbearable. Misogyny runs so deep in the society I almost expect from people to insult and harass me, my hair color is just another excuse to put me down and mock me.
