The perils of having pink hair

Or any other colour that isn't blonde or brown or redish.
It would probably be quicker for me to list the colours I haven't dyed my hair; grey -everytime I want to I get talked out of it, yellow - did it once and dyed it out the next morning, I just looked like I had an awful bleach job and those plumy-purpley-red colours you get - just never had the urge to have hair this colour. But there's a bunch of stuff you have to deal with if you have cool coloured hair. It's become a lot more common to have coloured hair - back in the day I used to go to a goth shop to buy my dye, now they sell it in boots. And living in London, rather than a small town means people have seen it all before. It doesn't mean that this doesn't still happen. 

People assume you're the sort of person who likes to chat on the bus/tube. And I'm really not. But for some people my hair seems to be an invitation to talk to me. I never get half as much of it when my hair is blonde or brown. 
All your outfits need twice as much planning. This applies even more if you change colour frequently like I do. Right now I can't really wear red or any autumnal colours like burgandy or mustard. Which is annoying because I have a really cool new red tee shirt I want to wear but it doesn't go with my hair.

Your hair turns to crap - unless naturally you have very blonde hair, to get your hair to go colours, you're gonna need to bleach it. So many people make a face when I tell them I bleach my hair. Well duh- did you think it just went light on it's own but somehow left dark roots??

Do you have coloured hair? Do you have any of these problems?

These ladies have such pretty hair!
Unfortunately I don't have coloured hair - used to have a lilac fringe but grew it out :( One day I hope to have my whole head covered in pretty pastel colours :)
