The journey to Gray;

It’s been 18 months of going blond, going short, then growing out,

It’s been a painful process. Long, arduous, exhausting, and often frustrating process.

Do I like it? I don’t know. It’s a big let down.

I like not going to the Salon every month to have my roots colored,

I like that the gray is silvery, not yellow and snaggey.

I think I will have my hair stylist give me some more highlights in front to take some of the frump out.

Maybe a purple streak?

Hair is frustrating.

But I’m grateful to have hair to fuss over.

  1. I tell my hairdresser I just want my hair to look like I chose to look this way not just what I ended up with! I still am not sure if I’ll keep it or not but I agree, sure don’t miss the touch ups!

  2. Looks good from here, but you are the one who has to be happy with it. The color of gray/white hair seems to depend a lot on the lighting—fluorescent, natural, etc. I think about the purple streak for myself occasionally, maybe a temporary color, but I am slow to initiate change.😳🤷🏻‍♀️

  3. True, it’s good to have hair! And looks good from what I can see. My sister’s let her hair go completely white and it actually looks quite trendy. 🙂

    • Yea, this grey thing is everywhere, even with the really young gals. The nice thing about hair is that I can change it if I don’t like it. And I went into this experiment with that in mind.

  4. How funny that I’m reading this post as I sit at the salon with a head full of foils!😄 I totally get your frustration and I agree that we are just thankful to have hair to ‘fuss over’🙏🏻 .
