Granny Hair Journey... 3 Month Update


So much has changed, but yet so much hasn't changed. When I first started this journey, I wasn't sure about my decision, where it would lead me and if it was right for me. I was worried about losing my youth and honestly part of my beauty. I put a lot of time and stock in my hair. It's not that I'm letting it go. It's more that I'm freeing myself from a chore. Coloring my hair was by far the most time consuming commitment I had.

The second month came along and I was definitely feeling better about myself and my decision. I was even a little happy with the choice. I was not just accepting the look, but embracing it and working on getting even more gray to pop out in the length by trying to strip the box color out.

Now, 3 months in, I kinda feel like I'm back at month number 1. I'm lost and unhappy and questioning if this is the right decision AGAIN. I look at myself in the mirror and... meh. The top portion of my hair I'm okay with, but when I lift up my hair and look underneath and see large patches of white and gray, I don't like it. I hate it. And then, I have to remind myself that I don't want to get caught in the viscous cycle of coloring my hair every 2 to 3 weeks.  

My unhappiness with my hair has urged me to put more effort into other areas of my face like my eyes. The awful part is that I've worked nights for over a decade now and I'm starting to look a little war torn and weary and questioning.... Should I have work done? I really never thought of myself that way, but lately, I just don't know. I'm not about to go gentle into the good night. I will rage, rage against the dying of the light. Over the top? I know. I'm working on it. So for right now, I'm wearing more mascara and trying to take even better care of my eyes and skin, if that's even possible with my regimen right now.  

The attempt to remove some of the box color from my hair has been trying, but it's working. I know I'm in for the long haul.  I definitely have more white and gray hairs in the length of my hair. One thing to note, hair dye controls unruly gray hairs. This process may make my hair even wilder than it already is. I have wispy short gray hair all over that think my flat iron is a punk... not kidding. And the rosemary and other oils are in fact, making my gray hairs darker. I watch my youtube videos and can see a big difference. You can try the rosemary oil too!

Watch my latest video to see for yourself.













So, on to month #4. I feel like I'm in limbo. Maybe I just need more time?

I love natural grey hair on women! I think it's so bold and striking. To me, it conveys confidence. You look great now and you will look great when you have a full head of grey! Great post.

My husband keeps asking me to go naturally grey- I could easily get there in about 6 months- but I'm too scared. I love the way it looks though.
