Gray Better Be the New Blond!

I have decided to allow my natural texture to rule my hair and NOW…I am also going to let my natural color shine forth. This is going to be big. I have been dying my hair since I was in eighth grade. Don’t ask me what my mother was thinking. Many women start coloring their hair when they get to a certain age and gray hair starts to pop up. Since I have been coloring my hair for so many years I am going to stop before I go too gray. I have some gray hair, hopefully not enough to make a blatant line of demarcation. I am not bold enough to rock the skunk look.  I will have a bit of a grow out line because I was coloring my hair red for several months. Ladies, do you know how hard it is to get red out? Do your stylist a favor and don’t go red unless you NEVER want to go back. Anyway, have you seen some of the silver-haired beauties with blogs? Lauren is just gorgeous! I almost wish my hair would go gray faster so I could have her silver locks! Alas, I will have to settle for silver highlights. Still, I can’t wait to see how my hair grows out. This might be one of my longest transformations ever. Even weight-loss doesn’t take as long as it takes for hair to grow.

If you have ever read my posts you know that I am not a photographer and when I do post a picture it is not of myself. However, I will try to have a selfie of me now and then another in what, five years? when my hair grows out. I’m thinking there will be other changes besides my hair color in five years.

I hope I don't look as bad as I think I do.

Having read several posts about growing out gray hair I am going to take the leap and go cold turkey on the hair color. I have been coloring my hair over 20 years! Crazy! I am mature enough to accept my natural hair color. I do not need to change my physical appearance to feel good about myself! I am who I am!

I’m still going to work out and try to have a healthy diet because I am going to fit into my jeans. And this whole silver hair is beautiful campaign better last because I don’t want to dye my hair right after I finally have it all grown out!
