Craving Authenticity: Transitioning from Dyed Blonde to Silver with My Curly Hair
Greetings dear creators of WONDER and MAGIC!
Five years ago I grew out my gray hair for 5 months and then chickened out (went back to dying it!) after receiving pushback from my teenagers and a few weird looks from strangers.
My desire to return to my authentic hair color has been growing stronger. I read Lorraine Massey’s wonderful book here on kicking the dye habit and embracing my silver and it deeply inspired me. Other gorgeous women I know whose tresses are silver also got me thinking- my mom, Terry De Meo, Aviva Gold and so many others!
We live in a culture that is convinced that aging is not palatable or somehow distasteful…but I don’t buy that.
The fever got stronger and I booked an appointment with a color specialist and explained my dream. It happened yesterday.
She painstakingly matched my roots/and new silver coming in and transformed my hair (it took 5 hours!). This transformation will allow me to grow it out completely without the dramatic “demarcation line”.
Others simple grow out their silvery roots for a couple months and go get a pixie (no fuss no muss) for instant return to their own hair. The truly BRAVE grow out their silver without any trips to the salon at all…there are many rivers that lead to the silver ocean.
Anyway- it was a BIG change and a WOW I am so glad I did it.
it feels fantastic to be more ME.
Is there something calling to you—some change that would enable you to be more authentic in some area of your life?
If embracing your curly silvery hair is feeling good- check out “Curly Silvers” group on facebook- so much love and inspo!
I hope you find the courage and the helpers to do what it takes. We need you to be YOU!
With much love and the COURAGE of 100 honey badgers,
