Have You Had a Best Feeling Moment?

I haven't posted in ages, but I just had to share this with you all, and maybe others have had one or more of those Best Feeling Moments that really turned it around for them on their gray journey.

One weekend, I went out shopping and it was sooooo windy, that the wind actually made pieces of my hair stand up straight on top and split to the sides on the back of my head. It was very very very sunny and bright too. Then it hit me. For the first time in a long time, I did not have to worry about people on foot or in cars seeing my roots and thinking, wow, that lady needs a touch up! I felt so free!

The other Best Feeling Moment was earlier on. I was looking in the mirror at my gray growing in. I momentarily got confused and thought, "Oh, I need to have my roots done". Then I said to myself, "Silly, those are natural roots". I was so relieved!
Once upon a time, on a clear moonlit night, I counted all the stars in the sky.
i remember 'those roots,' LOL! i see women now who have so much gray and yet still color and still think once every 6 weeks is when to get the touch up.... and it looks awful. (you just wonder, have they looked in a mirror? many of them have skunk lines for weeks between coloring, so that isn't aging? that looks extremely aging to me, i think it makes the person look very, very tired, dragged down......). so happy to be done with that.

i saw in your other post how the frequency of touch ups is a factor and it certainly was for me. every 3 weeks. week one my hair was too dark, but had to be to cover the very resistant gray/white, week two was ok (but never really what lo0ked right to me), then week 3 had clear, easily visible roots. not a way to live having to deal with coloring every 3rd week. i had wanted to stop coloring for years, just needed the gumption to transition.

glad you are already having positive feelings/thoughts about your hair.

rbb...I had another BEST moment...a woman I know who sees me often got new eyeglasses. She looked at my hair, told me she liked it and thought it looked better than when I was having it dyed. She said, if she hadn't known that I had grown out the gray, she would have thought I put the lightest parts in myself! My new hair goes with my complexion and my eyes....I knew that....
Once upon a time, on a clear moonlit night, I counted all the stars in the sky.
wow, new eyeglasses! that is a great feeling, right, when they see you with your gray and say how good you look.
i had that happen again just last night -- i hadn't seen a woman i knew back in 2007/2008 since then til a week ago, then again last night (we both go to the same swing dances, but we had both stopped going for a few yrs in between and she just started back) so we had lots to catch up on and last night she said she thought i looked fantastic, loved my gray hair! and while it's not the first time to hear it, it always feel soooo good!
who'd ever think you'd feel so attractive with gray hair?
