I'm often asked if I dye my hair. I don't.
Sometimes I say that I've never dyed my hair, but what I really mean to say is that I've never permanently dyed my hair.
There was a time (oh yes!) when I dyed my hair bright red. Please allow me to set the stage:
I was the most radical of the radical feminists, and I listened to (possibly) too much Joni Mitchell. My favorite piece of artwork at the time was The Liberation of Aunt Jemima and I had recently decided to be Lucille Ball for Halloween.
Let face it; it was my duty to go big or go home.
So I went big. Big red.
