Hair had been the bane of my existence while growing up. I didn't have what you call ideal "Indian" hair. Indians take pride in their long, thick, jet black luscious locks. My hair was (and is) thin, brown, and not luscious. I never felt I had hair to write home about. I wasn't necessarily conscious about them, but I wasn't proud either. When compared to my cousins or friends, I probably that the worst quality by Indian standards.
However, once I went to college and was in an international environment, my hair story changed 180 degree. I started getting compliments on my thin but naturally straight and shiny hair. My friends liked my natural sun-kissed brown hair color. That is when I started looking at my hair with new eyes. I realized in the west, it was not all about having black and thick hair. It was mostly about the quality of your hair, no matter what color. And they appreciated naturally straight hair (they couldn't believe I don't use a hair straightener daily).
I finally gained the confidence to have fun with my hair and hating my hair. I went ahead and got my first red low-lights, later I did some more subtle experiments. The length varied every year, as I started getting experimental with my hair. Over the years I have learnt that every step of your hair journey is important and you can make it as exciting as you want. If you are hesitant to try a new cut or color or both, I am here to tell you that go ahead an do it. It is just hair, they grow back and you live once!
However, make no mistake. Healthy hair requires a good haircare regime. Ever since I decided to change my hair color to something bright, I had been on a look out of products which will help my maintain the quality of my hair regardless.
