speckla your hair is fabulous!! thanks for the compliment dc. yes it is now almost 5 months since the last coloring and i am ok with the gray so far. my hair is now 32 1/2" long. i am scheduled to see ana at deva tomorrow for my once yearly cut/shaping. i loved the article in NY times, comments were interesting for sure. unfortunately i did not see much "curly awareness" but you cant have everything. i find long hair very low maintenance, i am happy with it even tho i wish it was nice and thick like speckla's....
