I am finally raising the white flag in the fight against gray hairs. Within the past four years or so, the white/silver hairs started making their appearance. Fortunately, I was able to stay on top of it by plucking the annoying things. And yes, I’m well aware of the old wives tale that for every gray hair plucked, two more grow in its place. But I assure you, it was worth it to me.
Oh vanity. Silly, silly vanity.
Then something happened after Ashlynn was born. Suddenly those gray hairs that I was trying to pretend didn’t exist, multiplied. Over night. I blame the hormones. There is certainly NO WAY that its because of my age.
And I continued to pluck.
But I had to face reality when Devyn tried counting the gray hairs in my part and we both lost track around 40-50. And that, my friends, is a punch to the ol’ pride.
So here I go. Off to the salon for my first hair color since I last dyed it an auburn color in 8th grade. I have no idea what I’m doing and I’m asking for help. I asked the Twitter and was told caramel or red highlights. So that’s what I Googled and came up with a few ideas.
What do you think? Do I do something fun? Or should I stick to my natural color as much as possible? Le sigh. Anyone want to come hold my hand next week?
