Flying free



Thank you all so much for your encouragement on my decision to let my hair go natural. Years of coloring my hair and straightening it, and now curly and grey :)

I even colored it when I wasn't going grey. I remember wishing I was blonde when I was about 15 years old. I heard that it was peroxide that made your hair blonde, so I bought a bottle. It didn't work at all....I just ended up with bright orange highlights. Throughout high school I tried streaking my hair (with a real kit this time). I dyed my hair to be a redhead, like Molly Ringwald. I had it jet black....I think I was *trying* to be Cleopatra with the bangs straight across my forehead. You can imagine the work that went into getting my curly hair straight. I even went blonde WOW! DO I LOOK AWFUL AS A BLONDE! That only lasted a week. Oh! I forgot about the purple hair and the pink hair.....anyways, now it's me. Pure and simple. Flying free!

Bonjour Tascha! Believe it or not, we almost have the same hair!!! Mine is lighter grey, almost white in front and longer. But I usually wear his very short in a boyish style. I have been thinking about getting it short again. I think grey short stylish hair look terrific on a woman! Hourah for the grey heads! Take care, LuLu

You have so much grace. I just had a birthday that put me on the downward slope to 60 and I really should do this too. I will try.....

I'm looking forward to going grey. I've always adored a chin length bob in beautiful silver/grey hair. Absolutely nothing to fear (unless you're scared of gorgeous hair).

You still look young and pretty even with the gray. It is evenly gray all over. Mine is not even and not flattering. The color gives my hair tecture and body, so I think I'll keep coloring it. I still need to try woodburning. Your bird is cute.
