This first photo you see, it’s me exactly 6 years ago, when I turned 40. That makes my daughter 6. That year I also left my hair go grey, but after a full year (or longer), of not coloring it, I started again until almost 5 months ago.
As you can see in the next two pictures, the crown of my head has some not tamable grey hair, 🙂 and even wispy sticking out greys. But they are mine. And I like them.
In the picture below you can see the sides are also showing some greys. I went to the hairdresser in an impulse, and my usual hairdresser wasn’t there, but another nice lady was, and she did great. I remember the tip of another hairdresser friend of cutting it in layers to get the color out, and that’s what I asked for. (Not all hair does well in layers, but mine does, so I have this new shorter hair cut). I may leave it long again, but first the colored hair needs to be cut. I don’t like too short hair styles, and, believe it or not, I can still do a pony tail -with lots of hair clips, but I can, and that’s important for me when I go to the gym classes, or when I run with my neighbor. (I am a social workout person, I never work out alone. I just can’t).
In the last picture, apart from the glasses reflection, you can see the grey shows less. That is because of the light and angle. Although the hair doesn’t look back, I am again impatient because the brown still shows more around my face than the newly grown grey. But who said this was going to be fast? It is a lesson in patience. And I can surely take it.
And what you see it’s what we get here in Houston, temps in the 70’s and 80’s, though today and over the weekend, they have promised us we will be in the 50’s. Yesterday at church it was the first time I could wear a scarf and jacket, and enjoy the feeling of warmth around my neck. Everybody is getting a bit sick here too. My girls were under the weather last week, and friends and acquaintances have been like that too. I only got a couple of days of the sniffles. There’s no miracle thing that will prevent you from getting a cold, or a stomach virus, etc. I have found, though, that drinking or eating a grapefruit every day helps a lot.
I got this Ninjablender for christmas, and I love it. It is perfect for those grapefruit juices we have at home.
