Because there are lots of things i should be doing, i thought i’d waste a little time being completely frivolous with my time and share a hair update (because i can if i want to).
Well, yes, i know that technically hair is dead but you know what i mean.
Anyway, I was surprised that so many readers were also experiencing the same coifure quandry and at the time i was erring on the side of just letting my hair do it’s own thing. I’d bleached and coloured it for about 27 years so what came through in the end would be like buying a lucky bag…you just never know what’s going to come out or whether or not your going to cry if you don’t get what you want.
Well, recently a blog buddy enquired how i was getting on with the ‘hair plan’ and whether or not i was still toughing out the ‘grow out’ and as it happens i was able to say that I have continued to refrain from the ‘bottle’ even though everytime i go to the supermarket or Boots chemist i spend at least 10 minutes in the home hair colourants section pondering whether or not to purchase one.
But i haven’t taken the bait so far and not only am i growing out the bleach blonde, i’ve just had a new hair cut to jazz it up a bit.
It does look a bit perculiar being grey/silver for about 5 inches from the root, and then bleach blonde the rest of the way to the tips of the hair, but at this point i’m thinking i’ll just go on letting it be.
Here are a couple of pics of my longer messy hairstyle on my recent hols…(please don’t look at my muttony arms!)….first there is a pic of me and Wonderboy…yep, these days if i want to get close to him i have to anchor him to the spot so he can’t get away from me…
and then next is a pic of me and Wondergirl (she strenuously objects to being referred to as Primadonna nowadays)… we were dancing a waltz in a field, what could be more natural?
Well the above messy ‘do’…or rather ‘don’t’ is maybe okay for the beach and for walking around crumbly castles, but i don’t generally want to look like i am wearing a birds nest atop my head, so i decided to take the plunge today and get it cut …my daughter had hers done too but she is at her grandma’s for the night and i didn’t get to take a pic of her fabulous new style before she went.
So here’s the gorgeous (i’m being ironic) silver/grey 5inch roots i’m now sporting…
and here’s a pic of my hair which has been cut shorter at the back (this pic is taken from a side view)
and this is what the blonde part of my hair looks like now…
Don’t know how i’ll feel about it when it’s all grey/silver but for now, I kind of like it.
So, how are you getting on girls?
Have you reached for the colourant bottle yet?
