After 8 months I have finally got up the courage to do it!
Color my hair!
And I am excited because it is the exact same color that I have had for 37 yrs!!! And that is quite a feat, because who knew there were SO many shades of brown!?
I have my kids to thank for my color success.
I probably have them to thank for the reason I need to color my hair too. ha ha
Eight months ago we were at Target on one unforgettable day, and I was holding my head next to all those loops of artificial hair and asking their opinion on which one was closest to mine. I kept asking them if my hair matched the ladies on this box or that box. "Is mine darker or lighter than hers?" My poor boys were wishing they were anywhere else in the world. : )
But, Joy didn't mind a bit! I must be color challenged or something, because I could not tell from the boxes pictures or the loops of fake hair... So, they were stuck for like 20 min. helping me try to pick one.
But, then I chickened out and I didn't use it. But 8 mo. later, it's either -go for the "hoary head" look or do something about it....
And so, I finally did it! And it was painless! Accept the smell made me want to pass out!
And it didn't turn out to be a funky color
like I was expecting and dreading and praying against. : )
Now a certain somebody in our family thinks that he ought to be able to color his hair since I did. And this person wants a funky color which would be blueish black. And it will take me a lot longer than 8 mo. to say 'yes' to that! ; )
