Lacrosse is a huge passion in my life and I play it any chance I get. I haven’t been playing for that long, just one year with the local Santa Barbara Lacrosse program, one season at the terrible school San Marcos on JV, and now this year on the SBHS Varsity team!
several of the varsity lacrosse players decided to bleach their hair in honor of the San Marcos rivalry game, including Myself… On monday night I decided that I was going to bleach my hair and show my dedication to the team. I thought that getting a do it yourself kit would do the trick, so I had my dad pick one up at CVS on his way home. My dad began the process of making the bleaching mixture, that composed of powders, oils, and other chemicals that I was about to put in my hair. As My dad began to coat my whole head of hair with the toxic concoction of bleaching chemicals I has beginning to have to serious thoughts that I had made a very bad decision.
Once the bleach was in my hair I had to leave it in for at least 30 minutes, but I knew that wasn’t going to be long enough, so I kept it in for about an hour. After the hour was up my head was burning and I couldn’t wait to get in the shower. Once i did shower I couldn’t help to notice that my hair turned out golden yellow. I went to school the next day and got a tremendous amount of hate and extreme responses toward my hair. To fix this problem I though it would be a good idea to redo my hair to get rid of the yellow. Luckily for my one of my friends mom if a hair stylist that could do it for me for free and professionally. My friend and I both went in to his mom and gout our hair bleached, for me a second time. The trick is to keep it in for as long as possible and of course having salon grade hair products help too.
Once I was done with the process my hair was actually white! The next day people shared their opinions, on it like last time but at least they were good opinions this time
