Elizabeth's Free your sparkle!

I'm growing out my hair to show my natural sparkle for Mind - The Mental Health Charity because the advice on their brilliant website helped me.

Story

"I have a dream, that one day, women and men all over the world will not be judged by the colour of their hair. I have a dream that sparkly-haired girls will be treated the same as those with no sparkles in their hair.  Now is the time to rise, be thrilled, delighted and proud of your sparkles, for they are part of you. Now is the time to lift ourselves from hair-based injustice. All hair colours are equal."

I am starting a campaign to challenge the stigma attached to sparkly hair. I am raising money for Mind, the mental health charity, whose brilliant resources I used alot last year. I want to start a conversation about whether it feels 'acceptable' to stop dyeing your hair to cover sparkles, and to encourage us all to be proud of them and ourselves, rather than feeling obliged to cover them up.

I'm not in any way suggesting what other people do, that is entirely up to them - I'm just being the change I personally want to see in the world.

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit this page. I'd be really grateful if you donated, and I would be extra grateful if you tell everyone you know and help start the conversation.
