dreaded roots, the ones that grow out and are no longer brunette or even blonde but well...
I come from a long line of White haired ladies and a long line of ladies who colored their hair.
My Mom was still going strong at 83, as was my Aunt Ester.
I have done everything possible to my hair to hide the gray, oops I did it again, white...hehe.
I have bleached, dyed, permed, cut, cropped, pony tailed, pinned, wigged, scarfed and cursed it
whew...and now I have just plain accepted it.
With acceptance comes freedom.
I really don't mind having a white head of hair, I just don't want to wear it.
I like it on other Ladies but not myself, I think it is beautiful with the right style and I
guess I have just accepted that it is not my style.
For Now, that is.
I have also accepted that idea that I have the right to change my mind at any given time.
After all I am a woman, and we should always reserve that right, don't you agree?
Some things are worth taking a permanent stance for or against.
I have plenty of those, trust me.
But my hair, well, what I am really looking for is for it just to be a pretty color and maybe one
My hair is unruly, it has curl where it should be straight and straight where there should be curl.
I have accepted the fact that children don't behave, men don't behave, society doesn't behave and
I suppose there are times that you and I don't behave.
But, my hair-well it must behave.
When I walk through the doors of my favorite Hair Salon-DV8 The Salon.
I am accepted and welcomed to choose any color, any cut, any style I would like.
No one tells me my hair is unruly or that the color is all wrong.
I asked my stylist, how much time do we have today, and she sweetly smiled and said
we have all the time you need.
Coloring my hair pretty is so much more than color-
It is acceptance of the woman I have become, the woman I am yet to be.
Accepting that what is right now, may not be later.
I am not in a rush to discover what that will be,
I am perfectly content in the present moment with the acceptance of who I am-today,
-blonde, brunette, red, white or gray hair, color does not define me, nor you.
But accepting who I am does, and taking it all, one step at a time.
Love to hear from those of you who have not left a comment before, please do-
I would love to know more about you!
