I’m like the shittiest skunk of all time.

So, I’ve decided that for the time being, I’m going to stop dying my hair, in order to see what the ‘grey’ in it looks like.  I’m not making any promises, such as “I promise not to dye my hair for a year”…or anything such as that. I just want to see how long I can stand not dying it.  My birth mom was prematurely grey at a VERY young age, and my hair grows so freaking fast, that I have to touch it up every 3 week or so. This is a GIANT pain in my ass, and honestly, I’m just too tired to do it anymore, so I figured I’d see what I looked like with some silver in my hair. Hehe.

Also, I just noticed when looking at the photo to the left, that I look like the shittiest excuse for a skunk of all time.

Anyway, one of my friends made mention that it was going to make me look about 10 years older, and while I agree this will probably be true, I also know of a few examples of folks who have gone  prematurely and they somehow still look vibrant, healthy and in some weird way, young.  But perhaps my most favorite example is Emmylou Harris.  I shall regale you guys with my horrible grow-out as I go along. I’m not positive how long I’ll last before I either a.) cut off the colored part, or b.) dye it.



This is what I imagine mine will actually look like. Sort of a mix of colors and textures with a tad bit of curl.


This is what I want my hair to look like, someday. One can dream.


This color. This style. I love it!

    I’m pretty sure anderson cooper is a wood elf! He has about 100 more years of silver-haired youth ahead of him

    I think grey/salt and pepper/white hair can look awesome, it’s all in the style.

    So funny you should post about this – just yesterday my husband and I saw the most fabulous woman. Her hair was mostly grey, like 80%, she rocked it like nobody’s business, and she looked totally hot.

    I think it’s a great idea! Nothing worse than a horrible regrowth line, Im a hairdresser who is a BIG FAN of grey. Go for it! I look forward to seeing how it looks :)

    It pretty much ended up looking like shit. My hubs said it aged me about 10 years. I gave it 3 years of grey, though, so I get points for the effort. 😀
