How do you deal with the constant urge to change?
« on: 22 Apr 14 / 12:42 PM »
Hey :) It's been a long while since I've been active, mainly as a tried to stick to one colour and this forum gives me so many wonderful ideas I had to try and stay away x3
Anyway I kind of figured some of you may of had the same issue I have.
Where I can't decide on a colour or just have a constant need to double back on a colour decision.
I personally finally dyed my hair black a year ago and attemped to keep it that way, just to try and keep some health by leaving it alone.Untill i decided to do half red hair, then back to black.
Then blue hair, then back to black.
Then green hair, to blue hair, to turquoise hair, to purple hair, to red hair, finally back to black.
I always got mad at it eventually and went back to what I consider my safe colour.
Then I kinda realised I always feel the need to ditch black as soon as I have skunk regrowth (i'm natually blonde,heh) It's always as soon as I become unhappy with my current colour, yet I never just think 'It'll be ok once i get my regrowth done, then i'll feel confident again'
I always reach straight for the remover and the bleach.
I guess it's just in my personality to have everything done right there right then.
Sorry for the long post, It is just personally really getting to me. And i just wanted to see how some of you perhaps feel about the hair choices you all make, and how you deal with the urge to change to even cooler ideas when you just did :) Thank you :D

Well I like natural colors on me and I am in an environment where even platinum is just acceptable. But I keep changing my mind between whether I regret bleaching my hair rather than sticking to highlights like I had. I like other people's highlights but I got sick of mine even though they were done well.

After months of wanting to go full bleach I did and it's hard to get it all uniform unless you fry it or cut it out. After a few months of touch ups and spot fixes most of my hair is uniform blonde except for the bottom few inches still have a lowlight effect, but half the time I regret making the change because my hair is fragile and I need to touch up more often. Every other day I alternate between wanting to go back to highlights and wanting  to be entirely platinum down to the ends.

I feel you. For me I think it's a psychological thing that my hair is a diversion from my unhappiness with school. I thought I would never color my hair till I was gray but then i really wanted the diversion. But it does become an addiction , and it's hard when you are too bleach happy.

For me it's not really merely about hair, but about like everything. I love to change my hair, my makeup, my clothes, add some accessories, I don't know. It just makes me so happy... Both to wait till I get all my necessary bits and bobs and go in my head through what I'll wear, how I'll style it, such a thrill omg,  to perform the change and then to LIVE the change... it makes me happy for a good... month I'd say.

Then my brain starts to hunt for sth new, for sth I've either already tried or not. This need to change is almost biological.

How do I fight the urge to change? Hmm... Maybe don't change everything from scratch, just try and introduce new ideas. New hair accessories, new jewellery, new clothing... try sth new! Look for inspiration. You don't have to bleach your hair every time you need a change, trust me :D Good luck!

I don't really have the urge to change my hair/makeup/clothes often.  Occasionally I'll think about cutting a fringe back in, but I force myself to wait three months to see if I still want it--and I'm always glad I did, because I never do want it after that waiting period!

I think if you're trying to stop changing your hair all the time, maybe change your makeup or outfit instead, or start a workout regime or take up a hobby ... the trick is to replace the behaviour you're trying to stop with another one :).

I love this advice, Intemp... brilliant.

I, on the other hand, have the urge to change my clothing style rather often, every 2-3 months maybe, and once I find a new style, I am addicted to shopping for it to have more choices than just one, hence why I'm a clothes hoarder and charity-shop bargain shopper!

I'm aware I should probably not take your advice in reverse :D, but I think you're right - many of us are after a new look every once in a while, and it's good to identify when that happens and explore alternative options and hobbies.
Hair reminds you just how much "patience is a virtue"...

Oh yeah, so these two men walk into a bar: you think one of them would have ducked. ::)
