I think I am ready to take a really big step.
For me, it is huge.
I never thought I'd do this until after I quit teaching, but....
the time has come.
It is likely to be a long summer--and possibly fall. Hats may become my new best friend. (Well, if I can find one to fit this enormous noggin.) I will keep highlighting to mix in with the gray.
For the the last year, my hair hasn't been holding the color very well. The hair around my face was especially quick to fade, sometimes within days.
And for the last few months, the color of my hair was washing out the color in my face. The hairdresser tells me that as your hair lightens (grays), your skin color changes, too. If you don't lighten your hair color, you're going against what your skin is doing naturally. So...
We'll see. Time will tell.
Look for updates. I'll keep you posted.
Let the painfulness begin.
