It’s been a few years since I’ve had darker hair. I’ve been blonde for many, many years and I keep going back to blonde hair.
Part of it had to do with a book I read about looking years younger by Joan Rivers. She wrote as you get older your hair should get lighter.
I took it to heart. So I was platinum blonde, burning off the ends of my hair, thus it wouldn’t grow long like it used to be when I had my natural color.
It was time for a reset. What is bleach, but a burning peroxide that breaks off the ends of your hair.
Nevertheless, I’d been bleaching my hair for years and years. However, I want to grow my hair long, and bleaching your hair does not help in the quest.
In trying to get my hair to grow back to it’s natural color, I chose not to cut it all off down to the quick.
I’ve even had friends that shave their head completely to grow back their natural hair. That is not me. I did not want to sacrifice the length, so I sacrificed the color, instead.
Surprisingly, one person said that I look younger with this new hair colour closer to my own.
Although, I miss my old blonde hair, at least I know now I will be able to grow it down to my shoulders with it’s natural Ash colour, with a few highlights. As much as I like hair extensions, or as you can see above, a Wiglet of blonde, I prefer natural, long, beautiful hair.
I wear hair extensions, and I find them fun, but they are also hot and itchy.
