Seven (7) Months Grey

I checked my date book to see when my last hair color appointment was, February 16, 2018 at 9:30am…….seven months without hair color.  I never thought I would make it, let alone this far.  I thought I might cave and get a touch-up or cut it all off (that was a quick passing thought); then I realized that I have about another year and a half to go to be completely gray – well that sucks on so many levels. 

What sucks more is being photographed these days.  I feel unkept.  The color scheme I do have on my hair is fading in various stages.   I wish I could just wash all the color out at this point, like right now.  Yeah, patience is not a virtue some days.  I feel like this is a penance on some level from colored hair to gray hair.  It was by my own doing, but that doesn’t mean I have to like it on any level.  Breathe in, breathe out…..patience. 

Does this gray make me look old?  Like coloring my hair was hiding my age?!  I have had my good and bad days with my transition to gray.  I love saving money, I do not miss going to the salon, I hate the time table I am on in growing it out……….yet, through it all I am the same person.  Okay, maybe a little fluffier, but the same person who is in transition with a crown of gray.  Make that lots of gray…….
