About a year ago, my hairdresser Joan and I began the discussion of beginning to lighten my hair color. I remember as a child, my grandmother, who colored her own hair until the day she died at 82, telling me that as one ages, they need to go a shade lighter, about every ten years. We all know some dark brunette that continues to color her hair really dark and it looks ridiculous. I wanted to avoid that.
I was 60 years old and I had very healthy hair and I had a color that people complimented me on. But I knew it was time to start the discussion. I also wanted to grow my bangs out and have my hair be all one length. The jury is still out on this endeavor as my hair is SO fine. Eventually, I will let it all grow to shoulder length before it starts flipping up and I look like Patty Duke.
Joan says that I am about 33% gray overall. Although fine, it still is healthy. I am blessed.
Until we “connect” again……
