Since You Asked
... in the comment section of the "Dog-gone Thief" post ... I had actually planned my next post to be called: "Going, Going, Gray - Part 2" ... It's been six months since I stopped coloring my hair. Each month I've gotten the ends trimmed and have been adamant about not recoloring ... although I did have a dream that somehow my hair had been recolored and I was glad to wake up seeing the gray ;) ..
Here are two pictures my friend Christina took when she visited last month. The gray has grown out about 40% of the the length. Since I have layered hair it doesn't appear to be almost halfway grown out ... but it is. Most days I just put on a smile ... but on extremely bad hair days I wear a ball cap. No turning back now. The bang area is frosted snow ... progressing back to salt and pepper ... and dark brown at the neckline. It really hasn't been too bad ... the hardest time was the first month or two when it just looked like I was overdue for a coloring ... now it's pretty obvious that I'm letting it grow in gray. I'm not a gal that can wear short hair ... so you won't see me sporting a pixie ;)
Here is my original post
