You can actually become addicted to dyeing your hair. It really is possible?
The psychologists explain how everyday activities, such as eating, working and other activities, can become addictive. In the same way, dyeing your hair can become quite the habit-forming activity.
In 2008 the Nottingham Trent University conducted a research, on women between the ages of 25 and 66 and discovered that women experience a boost of confidence after dying their hair.
Women admitted to dyeing their hair in order to catch the attention of friends, family, and strangers, alike.
About half of the studied women admitted that they would ask someone out or initiate intercourse, after getting their hair dyed.
The University study also found that in addition to confidence, women who dye their hair are also more impulsive, sexually exciting, rebellious, creative, attractive and able to deal with criticism.
Women who dyed their hair were also found to be more likely to take a firm stand with romantic partners, friends and family members.
Women who dyed their hair were found to be particularly more confident in certain work situations. These situations include asking for a raise or a promotion.
A majority agreed that a dye job would also increase their likelihood of helping someone in the street, complaining about service or asking for a favor.
Of the studied women, about half agreed that, after dyeing their hair, they wouldn’t be embarrassed to either sing or dance in front of strangers.
