And, no, I don’t mean that awful book. I am talking about hair. At age 53, I’ve started to wonder whether or not to keep dying my hair. I used to be a brunette, but I’ve had gray in my hair since my early 20’s. I’ve been every color possible except gray. I see my hairdresser every 4-5 weeks now, and that’s not enough. I often have gray at the temples or gray showing at the part long before I’m due to see her again.
Don’t get me wrong – my hairdresser is a good friend of mine, and I truly enjoy her company but I’m tired of being a slave to color. I’m tired of having the monthly goop and foil in my hair. My hair has become increasingly dry and straw-like. I suspect that’s because it’s mostly gray now. I also have a few white eyelashes and more than a few white eyebrows.
I know I am no Jamie Lee Curtis, but what if I were to let it all go natural? My husband’s hair is all gray now. Why not me?
