A lockdown locks story

Here’s the link to a newspaper story I just did about women and their hair. Need I say more? ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. ๐Ÿ˜€ No judgment here. I used to take a highlighter and put blue streaks in my reddish-blonde when I was young. It was a look…

      Hmmm. A forever hair color. That’s something to think about. I wouldn’t mind pink.

  1. I really enjoyed reading this!

    Iโ€™ve actually blogged about coloring my hair as Iโ€™ve had gray hair since my mid-twenties. I colored it until 2019 age 35…I did a follow up blog about deciding that I wouldnโ€™t color it anymore…now I need to do another follow up blog to show progress/results! Your post encourages me!!

    1. ๐Ÿ™‚ Wonderful! It’s interesting to see how beautiful natural can be. Full disclosure, I’ve been natural since my 20s, but I only have a few white strands and I actually like them. They somehow add sparkle!

  2. Great article Nora! A trend worthy of being highlighted (no pun intended). I do appreciate that this trend has taken firm root. Iโ€™ve been watching friends take this journey over the last several years and have been so proud of them. Neither my mother or grandmothers ever dyed their hair. Each adamantly proclaimed that silver hair showed wisdom only gained by age. So I followed their suit and have watched my youthful blond streak grow whiter every year. The pressure from other women to color my hair was pretty rough at times but my wonderful husband has been my biggest stay natural supporter. On the menโ€™s side of Covid hairstyles, I listened to my husband and brothers bemoan the mullet look that came with the Covid close of barbershops. I have to say Iโ€™m relieved that particular look did not take root again.

    1. I love the puns anyway!! It was a fun story to do as I know both women pretty well. I’m seeing a lot of the half and half look around town. I can’t really say much about the issue because my family doesn’t gray early for the most part. I have a few white strands that I don’t mind at all!

  3. Started to grow out my dark brown dyed hair in 2008 a year before I retired. I remember my lovely hairdresser supporting me through the process and he commented at the beginning โ€˜you will feel differentโ€™.
    I felt it to be a rebirth at a time in my career when I had been successful in โ€˜jumping through the hoopsโ€™ to prove competency following illness.
    I was in one sense winding up when my career path was meant to be winding down.
    Thank you for allowing me that reflection Lisa .

    1. ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s funny how that works. Sometimes all the subtle color variations in gray hair wind up being prettier, too. I absolutely like the white mixed in with my dark blonde.
