It looks like you had it frosted! I like it. I remember how freeing it was to quit dying my hair (long ago). And your hair will be healthier, too. Kudos!! :)

I think your hair looks great Marianne! I myself often wait two months longer than I should to re-color my hair. While the grey doesn't really bother me, I still like a predominately brunette Barbara looking at me in the mirror. With all the gold and copper highlights I'd always had. So, I suppose it will be another few years before I join you.

Love it. But what I love is that you have accepted who you are - gray and all. I have a similar feeling about make up. I used to wear make up every single day. Not a great amount, but enough that it made a marked difference. Yes it made me look better and I sometimes still throw on a little blush and some under eye concealer. And I do look better. But truly, I am who I am and life is so much easier to put on some moisturizer and call it done. And really, that is what I look like and it is who I am and I am getting older and no one expects me to look 35 when I am 67. In fact those folks who strive for that in their older years look odd. By the way, I don't color my hair and never had to. I do have some gray but mostly it is still my natural color - a genetic gift from my grandmother who really never went totally gray until her 80s. Guess I am lucky that way. My sister didn't inherit that gift and she works in sales and she must color her hair completely - and she is 7 years my junior - and totally gray without artificial color. In her line of work she is judged by her appearance and it may affect her success (sadly in our culture youth is deemed more valued), so I understand her actions, but even she said once she retires, the artificial hair color goes!! She will be completely gray at my age.

Oh my, I did run on. Sorry. You look great, just the way God meant for you to look. How can you improve on that!! :-)

It looks really nice on you.

I'm actually also growing my hair out at the moment and I'm finding it nice to see what my natural color's actually like. :-D

I've considered letting my go grey, but just not ready to embrace it. When it's been too long between hair appointments and I look at the awful color in the root area...very drab, lifeless looking gray with no shine to it. Some folks have pretty grey, or better yet the beautiful white. Mine looks like it's going to be just plain ugly. You'rs looks like it's been frosted almost ...just here and there and hardly noticeable. I even asked my hair dresser about streaking mine so it would be less noticeable and she thought it would be a bad idea. She says you'd still have the roots. Out blog visiting today gearing up for the a-z challenge, looking forward to meeting new bloggers and visits from them.

I've been gray since my early 20s and have gone through phases of letting it go natural, but I always end up coming back to the box lol. Now that I'm in my mid-30s I only dye it every 3 months or so, and at some point I'll go natural again but I'm not ready quite yet :)

I am thankful that my red hair (which has lightened to a pale gold color) is absorbing the grey in a lovely gold/silver mix. At my age, beauty blessings like that are a true gift.

I love your beautiful hair, it looks gorgeous! I just stopped using the box stuff and had my hair colored at the salon. I do like how it looks for the first three weeks, until my gray/silver comes peeking out.

I'd stop coloring it tomorrow if the hubs would be okay with it.

Thank you for sharing your journey, I am hoping to follow in your footsteps soon.
