You probably can't tell because the videos always seem to make my hair seem dark, but I'm going grey. I have been for a while. Not big time, but enough. I decided last year to stop dying my hair. So very *S L O W L Y* my hair has been growing out and coming in grey. I have two major grey streaks on each temple and a fair amount of grey on the top of my head. My decision to just "let it be" was not an easy one. I tried many times last year to stop dying it, but I would cave in once the roots started showing. Last summer I decided to just do it and wear hats all winter so that the growing out phase wasn't as noticeable. Every so often trimming away the dyed ends. Now I am happy to say I just have a little tiny bit of color left on the ends that I will be cutting off in a month or two. Then I will have 100% natural hair. Phew.
I've enjoying the camera not showing how grey I've become. But I know that when I start shooting outside in the sun, it WILL show. My grey hair will be official.
It's been a hard transition for me, but I am determined to be natural. I don't like chemicals for starters, the fumes from the dye always bother me. Also I just want to be me. I earned these grey hairs LOL! It is who I am. Why should I try and look younger than I am? This is me. Sure I know I would look "better" with colored hair....but it wouldn't be me. All those tv shows where they try and make you look "10 years younger". It's really quite insensitive. Who cares what people on the street think? This is my stand on the issue. I really don't care how old strangers think I am. (You guys are another story :)
Seriously, I am going to accept that I'm aging and I'm not going to fight it.
The bottom line is, "It's what's inside that counts."
