black and missing

PLEASE HELP. I need your opinion.

I am debating if I want to go back to having black hair or not. I had it for a while and loved it and then one day decided that I wanted something different (idk why now that I think back) but the thing is I went through hell when it came time to bleach it. Like I got really sick for about a week. Now all this time later I’ve got this brown > brown/gold > light blonde ombre thing going on because of it and it’s cute and all, but…

I miss having black hair. 

Do I go back to it and possibly bleach it again down the road if I decide I want to change it or do I leave it how it is and go with something else that won’t require such drastic measures later on?

What would you do in my position?

MISSING from Goldsboro, North Carolina, USA: Kennedy Fitzgerald McLaurin (link):

State authorities issued an Amber Alert Wednesday for a Goldsboro teenager whom they believe was abducted by four unidentified people.

Kennedy Fitzgerald McLaurin, 16, is black, stands about 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighs about 135 pounds. He has black hair, brown eyes, pierced ears and a tattoo of the initial K on his left hand.

Goldsboro police said McLaurin, who also goes by the nickname “Little Ken,” was last seen around 1 p.m. Sunday.

His mother, Kim Best, said she reported him missing Monday after becoming concerned when he didn’t come home Sunday night. After hearing rumors that he had been abducted, she called police.

Investigators said McLaurin was kidnapped from the 700 block of Bain Street in the Woodcrest Housing Community and forced into a blue, older-model Buick or Lincoln by three or four black males.

Police did not release any further information. A spokesman for the city of Goldsboro said the Amber Alert wasn’t issued until Wednesday, partly because police had to verify the rumors.

Anyone with information about McLaurin’s disappearance should call 911, the North Carolina State Highway Patrol at *HP or the Goldsboro Police Department at 919-580-4243 or 919-705-6572 or Crime Stoppers at 919-735-2255.
