I’m going gray...fast and
I am letting my gray grow out, again!
Depending on how long you’ve been following me, I’ve tried it a couple times before. The first time when I decided to ditch my relaxer and go with the natural hair movement; and again when I chopped all my hair off to donate to Locks of Love.
I am trying again. Coloring it has become almost an every 2 week process and sometimes it doesn't even last that long. There are weeks it gets colored and more often then not, the next morning there is a gray shinning bright and I’m kind of over it. I’ve had gray hair since I was in high school, so as much as I would love to blame my age or children for it, I’m pretty sure it’s just genetic. It’s also a trait I’ve seemed to passed on to my 18 year old son, who already has gray hair, sorry kid!
My gray doesn't seem to be growing in a graceful, sprinkling throughout my head, it seems to be growing down. Almost completely white at the roots and then black! I haven’t colored my hair in 6 weeks, so that black may just be left over color, I'm not sure.
I have been transitioning with braids, letting my gray roots show and added some gray to the braids.
I’m a little too vain to just let it grow out and look crazy. Y’all know that’s not going down, like ever!
It will likely stay braided or weaved up until I grow the gray out to a place I like.
You also know how I get bored and/or impatient so I could throw it all away and die it back to black or chop all the color off and have a super short all gray pixie. You just never know, but for now, here’s to being gorgeous and gray.
