I just thought I'd pop in here. I really want to just let my hair gray. Well, actually, there is no "letting". It is graying.
I keep thinking about coloring but haven't so far and probably won't. I get kind of excited to see the shimmery white strands mixed in with the brown in the front. I have a few totally gray curls in the back. I was looking in my car's rear view mirror this morning before taking my 11 year old out and spotted my white strands looking very shiny. I was thinking ok, this is pretty neat. I like the way the grays are coming in. I'm definitely not coloring. I tell my 11 year old (daughter) to look at my white hair mixed in with the brown. She says, "cool"! So, I'm feeling quite happy until she adds, "just don't let it get all over your head".
Oh well. I read on here that someone calls the grays their "fairy hair". I'm trying to keep that description in my head to feel like this is a good decision to let my hair do its thing.
