I am a huge fan of "off" hair colors. I've had my hair dyed many different colors and many different mixes at once of those colors. The video answers the questions you asked. Everyone I know who I haven't seen since the end of last year, when they see me now they can't help but ask, "where's the color in your hair?" or "what happened to your hair?"

Originally I kept dying my hair because I noticed after the first time, people would compliment my hair instead of make fun of my weight. I found it was a way to focus their attention on something else. I liked the compliments more than the picking, so I continued to dye my hair. Now it's just a thing I do. Not now, but the video explains that as well.
