If you have read my Facts About Me post you know that I am a true red head! November 5th is National Love your Red Hair Day and because of that I’ve partnered with Meg over at Gingy Love and we are chatting about our experiences with being red headed.
Growing up I hated my hair. I think it was mostly because it brought attention to me when I just wanted to “blend in”. In high school I started highlighting my hair blonde and by college you could hardly tell I even had red hair.
As I have grown older and gotten used to the skin I am in I have learned to embrace my hair for the unique quality it has. I not longer color it and I am not embarrassed when people compliment it. I actually enjoy when people say something nice about it! I have learned to love when people call me a ginger… I mean my blog is named after it even!
As a women we are so self critical of our bodies and appearance and I love that I can finally start to feel confident in my skin and proudly say I LOVE my red hair. Growing up it wasn’t easy but now I realize that so many people struggle with different parts of themselves everyday and that we should all try to LOVE how different we all really are.
Also, can I just say we need a RED HEAD emoji like yesterday?!?!
If you are red headed or love someone red headed give them a big ole hug today and say I love you AND your red hair!
