When my sister Letia and I were in our mid teens, we decided to bleach our hair. Now mind you our hair was already in the blonde family…but hey when you want white hair, you want white hair.
After the process our heads actually glowed in the dark. I remember waking up in the middle of the night, spying the mirror on our dresser and scaring myself half to death wondering ‘what was that in the mirror’. It was me of course.
Any way…after my roots started growing out I decided I wanted to go back to my natural color ~ a darker blonde. Did the home thing and voila – my hair was back to normal.
Or so I thought!
After walking around – going to school for two weeks someone mentioned to me that my hair looked ‘green’. This was long before that was a fashion statement. ☺ Needless to say I was taken to a professional who corrected our mistake.
My point is this…if you see someone going in the wrong direction. If it looks like they are veering onto a path that will lead to heartache and pain. Warn them! Let them know you love them and don’t want to see them outside of God’s protection. Ask to pray with them! Do all that you can to show them God’s love, wisdom and patience.
They may not listen but it’s better than Green hair!
