This seems to be a common word of the past two months for me. Transition.
It is not that I am ‘letting my hair grown in’ or ‘I stopped coloring’ it is I am ‘transitioning‘.
I am transitioning in a LOT of areas it seems. It seems to be a common theme with me internally since turning 44 in January. I am watching my girls transition into a new stage in their lives. The way I dress and how I feel about things – everything is in transition.
However, I never said any of that was bad. Just new! I can tell you my hair never looks the same twice as the pictures will show!
SO, onto the photos!
For a refresher – here I am at 5 months:
Closer to 7 months:
Blown out for a different effect! (Phone camera with flash shows overexposed but a hint of what is to come!)
Natural Light shows how dark the dark is (pardon the shadow!)
I have 4.5 inches on my growth line. The old brown is really oxidized at this point but I
refuse am not going to cut it off for shorter hair. I also skipped the Keratin Deep Condish this month to see what was going on with it all. Months 5-6-7 were not easy. I am feeling like I am ‘transitioning’ out of that stage and moving into calmer hair, healthier scalp and there is no turning back now.
I really like that I can see so much more of my orignal hair color – I call it Celtic Black. It’s a true pepper for all the salt. It just blends correctly. My skin tone just looks better all around. And if I thought I would lose any of my curl – silly me.
I have a LOT of salt underneath the canopy which is still darker on top.
The one thing I am appreciating – it is unique to me. I look around and no one has the same hair as me. No one!
I am lucky that it is blending fairly well. I am also glad I started now before I dabbled in permanent hair color. I worry that in about 5 years the transition might be a lot harder!
To quote a hair of box color – ‘Nice and Easy’ is how I feel!
