A little over a year ago, I decided to stop coloring my hair (Going Gray). I’d started to feel uncomfortable hiding my silver while I was spending my days helping folks deal with growing older. I kept a box of fire red in the closet, though, just in case it was a disaster.
I got through the difficult early phase (Going Gray Update) by hiding my hair under thick headbands that (mostly) covered the gray.
I kept going through the multi-colored stage (Going Gray Update #2), emotionally fortified by splurging on great cuts by Stacey Lyn Weinstein of Loft 26 in Manhattan.
And now I’m done!!! And I love it. I’m a silver sister. Thanks, to those who encouraged me along the way.
