Remember when I grew out the grey in my hair and posted about it because I thought it was interesting to random people on the internet? If you don’t remember, you can check out the post from 2017 here and 2018 here. And strangely enough, random people on the internet were actually interested in these posts! Also, I can’t believe it’s been so long since I committed to ditching the dye. I’m so happy with my choice and haven’t looked back in regret even once. Now that it’s 2021, and growing out the grey is now fashionable because of salon closures during the pandemic lockdowns in 2020, I thought I would share another (and probably final) update about how my naturally silver hair looks these days.
So here you have it. Ta-dah!
Random side note: In my past blog life, there’s no way I would have posted that second picture. This is probably something like, day four hair, and all that frizz would have made me feel self-conscious about sharing before. I was way too into looking put together back then. I quite enjoy the freedom of just showing you guys my frizzy not-perfect curly hair and gasp! also no makeup. But at least those dimples are still going strong.
I’ve had multiple big hair cuts since 2017 and the color is officially all gone. And while at my most recent hair cut the stylist was sure there was still color left, I am certain he was mistaken. It was likely the ends had been sun-bleached by the previous summer’s sun because I have silver strands all the way from root to tip.
So I know said this would be a final post about my hair, but it’s probably not going to be. I plan to write a bit more about caring for naturally curly hair down the line, if I continue to post regularly again.
