Thank you Silver Tabby!
Much appreciated. I’m not cutting it.
I’d like to try and grow it to knee length but I’ll see how it goes.
I’ve had long hair my entire life except for 3 major cuts. The first one was due to having an obsessive father who went scissor crazy. My parents didn’t help me look after my hair at all but, touch wood, I’ve never, ever had lice. That would suck big time. I’m sorry you had such negative experiences but happy that you like your hair now. My best girlfriend has very short hair and I just LOVE it. Today I’ll ask her if I can post her picture. She’s as cute as a button.
Thank you for sharing your hair experiences.
Thank you so very much. Your hair from your avatar looks lovely. The great thing about being a blonde is that transitioning to silver is usually the easiest and looks the nicest. I have an online friend who transitioned from bottle blonde to pure silver and her hair is knee lengths. It looks gorgeous. Someday you’ll do it and won’t look back. It’s such easy maintenance.
Thanks for sharing
Your hair sounds lovely and while I appreciate,all natural, I liked colour too much to leave it but glad I have now because now I’ve got an ombré with contrasting colours.
I have to disagree with you though about hair dyes not allowing natural tones to show through. While I didn’t use box dye to colour my hair , ( used all natural substances ) these days there are many hair dyes that DO allow for natural tones to show through. They still aren’t good for your hair but they aren’t anything like they used to be.I’ve got to agree , however, that darker coloured hair actually ages the person more. It does tend to look harsher. Even my naturally coloured hair was starting to look a bit harsh. I really do prefer the silver/grey plus it’s easy maintenance. Just wash and air dry and while doing the roots was a PITA, the natural hair colour certainly allowed for the different tones to shine through. I wouldn’t have used it for 35 plus years if it didn’t.
And YES everyone needs to have hair that not only suites their appearance but also their lifestyle. For sure!
Thanks for your input Meg. Much appreciated.
Your hair sounds like it’s perfect for you.
I think one thing most people who don’t have long hair think is that long hair takes a lot more work to look after. This really isn’t necessarily true. Many people grow their hair long for the very reason that it doesn’t take much effort to look after. It gets washed and air dried. Once dried it gets put up into a bun and stays like that all day long. It’s actually awesome cause you can oil the ends and hide it within the hairstyle. I don’t blow dry , style or curl my hair whereas when it is shorter I HAVE to because I have cow licks everywhere that collide with each other. Perhaps another wavy/ curly can elaborate on this some. It’s like crashing waves.
None of these pics are professional but thanks all the same.
Anyway I’m driving to my parents house today to treat them to honey glazed chicken with honey glazed carrots , wild rice and gluten free devils food cake.
Ummmm yum it’s good.
Later peeps and thank you once more for your opinions.
