I have always said I want to age gracefully.
My hair has always been quite dark, with a touch of red. Well, I have decided to take the big leap of letting it go to its natural color. I think it is about 50% salt and pepper right now, and I have to let the dye grow out.
So today my hairdresser and I decided to just go forward with light highlights to transition the change.
For many of us boomers, this is a big step. We grew up with looking and feeling young. I still feel young, (usually after I have been up for an hour or so!!) and I don’t think the color of my hair should really make a difference.
I tried this a few years ago, just to go cold turkey with no transition color. It really did age me. But now I think it will fit with the wrinkles I have acquired.
Age is just a state of mind…
if you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.
