My hair has been all over the board with dyes and cuts.
I always had dark brown hair (almost black) and played with different colors of dye to cover my roots. White/silver roots really show up on dark hair!
Then around 2008, I decided to dye my hair caramel and highlight the front blonde to cover up the grey and from there I continued to add blonde highlights on top to blend in the grey.
I began my journey to silver hair in May 2015.
I was going to let my all natural roots grow out in my 50th year of life! No more covering up what was naturally wanting to shine through. This was the beginning of my ditching and switching: ditching the toxins out of my life and switching to a natural approach to life.
In May 2016, I went to the salon and got my final chop, no more dye!
I asked the cosmetologist to cut out the rest of the dye. It had been one year and I was ready to have those lingering dyed ends be gone!
I had the last bit cut out and actually cried when I left the salon that day. It was the most amazing feeling knowing that I no longer was hiding my natural color behind a bottle of dye.
That year of transition to gray hair was one of personal growth, learning who I am, not worrying about what others say or think and truly becoming comfortable in my own skin.
I never dreamed how liberating and freeing becoming all natural silver/gray/white would be! Freedom and liberation are mine!
My favorite products are all natural and work well with my long silver hair.
So many of you, my friends, are in the midst of your gray hair journey and have told me that I’ve inspired you to begin it or that I’ve inspired you along the way. That’s why I speak out about my transition…to encourage and inspire other women.
Hang in there ladies, and know I’m cheering you on and I’m only a message away if you need me! It can be difficult but look inward and grow through it as a person!
