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.
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!
