Nine Month Update!

I have now been on this hair journey for nine months. The last time I had color or high lights added to my locks was April 2015. I have saved hundreds of dollars and many hours sitting in the chair having chemicals put on my hair.

Last month was the first time I felt a little in a funk and considered calling and setting up an appointment for some highlights. It has passed and and I'm back on track. I told my friend/hair dresser that I want to make it to the one year mark and then we can talk again about going forward. I do love seeing the silver and am enjoying natural highlights.

I will start with photos from today and then show the progress since day one. I have gotten my hair cut two or three times now-each time a little shorter. I loved my long hair and will probably go back to it but I must say this short  style is so easy for me and I like the sassy feel of it.
I know that from the front you can not even tell sometimes that I have grey hair at all, I can , but when I post pictures to my friends that know I'm doing this they comment that it doesn't look grey. I guess that is a good thing although I'm excited for it to be all grey. If I hate it I can go back and add color but I don't think I will.

And...some from the past. Here is the last time I had color added...April 2015

37 weeks dye free, hair update!

I have not done an update on my hair since November , it's now been 37 weeks since I have colored my hair in my journey into going grey naturally.
I am 48 years old and decided almost 9 months ago that I would like to stop coloring my hair and let nature take over with the silver highlights. I am enjoying the journey. I have gotten my hair cut  twice since I started this and have another appointment this month. I   am keeping it about the same length now but go in for a trim and to keep my bangs under control. This is a very easy style for me, I just wash it and let it go. When I'm ready to  go out I use the straightening iron on it and I'm good to go. I'm not one to spend much time on  hair or make up..I think it takes me about 10 minutes to get out the door in the morning after I get dressed.

Anyway..here are todays photos.

27 Week Transition to Gray Hair

Here I am almost 7 months in with no hair dye, no high lights and one hair cut. In different lighting I see more gray than others...It will come. In the mean time I'm enjoying the glitter of the silver when it catches my eye :)
