hair dying

Does anyone else dye their hair when hypomanic or irritable? I just died my hair from blond to red again because I was irritable and things weren't going my way. I guess its a fairly harmless way of dealing with stress.

I shave my head once a year, but it is usually when i am depressed.

I get my hair weave with blonde and a darker blonde and get it trimmed every 2 months. I have grey hair so I had to do something. I love going to the salon it makes me feel special.

I've had moments where I'm manic when I decide to either chop off or dye my hair. Fortunately, I'm usually easily distracted, so I change paths fairly quickly. I have gotten some nice hair cuts out of it, though.

Yep, I've chopped my hair off & dyed it different colors when I was manic. Not any time recently though, as I have had fairly short hair for years now & can't chop it much shorter!

I do this all the time. I actually just dyed my hair 2 days ago =)

I've been taking the scissors to my hair and dying it since I was about 13?

When I'm hypomanic I start thinking/stressing that I'm ugly and constantly cry while trying to get dolled up.. which leads to me changing my hair.

I cut my hair very short and sometimes I dye it black.

Maybe someday I will bleach it blond and then shave it really short IDK.
