If you have ever had some colours other than the normal brown, golden or bronze you'll relate to everything I am about to say. Offbeat hair colours look awesome and make you look distinct from the rest. Grabbing eyeballs your hair becomes the centre of attraction in you. However, in India where so many people with different ideas of beauty and fashion live together in harmony, you with an offbeat hair colour can be a fodder for them to troll you or shower their inquisitiveness on. Here are a few things that girls with a different hair colour have to hear in India.

1. Why did you chose this colour and not some 'normal' colour?- because I didn't want a normal colour on my hair. Simple.

2. These colours are more damaging, right?- NO chemicals aren't used in hair dyes based on the colour.

4. Oh god! Fashion these days has made people mad- Choosing a different hair colour doesn't make you mad. Bitching does.
