I have seen a few memes lately that say if you’re going through a rough time don’t do anything to your hair. Don’t get it cut, don’t touch your bangs and certainly don’t dye it red. I think that’s complete and total bullshit.
If you’re going through a rough time and you feel that changing your hair might make you feel even a twinge better, please do that shit. Shave your whole head, cut out the edgiest bangs you’ve ever seen, or get a lob, whatever that is. The idea that making a physical change to your appearance is indicative of a person’s stability or state of mind is ridiculous.
If you see a girl with a new haircut or color it doesn’t mean she’s going through something. Maybe she just looks really fantastic like that or her hairdresser did her dirty. Either way it’s none of your business. Please, for the love of God, stop finding ways to criticize women’s bodies and adding to the stigma of mental health.
