Today I spotted two old ladies walking together. The first thought that popped in my head was "hey that could be me and my sisters in a few years". Then I slapped myself and looked again.
One old gal had beautiful white hair to go along with her wrinkles. The other was a stark contrast....bright orange red. I would guess both of these ladies to be in their late 70's or 80's but that doesn't really matter. The point is that the orange red hair really made this lady look rather harsh and ridiculous much older.
I have only colored my hair twice for the fun of it and both times the color was so close to my natural color you could hardly tell I had blown $80.00. I guess you could say I am not very adventurous. You think? Well I have finally given birth to a few white hairs. Not really all that noticeable but I was wondering. When is it the right time to stop trying to make our hair look young when our body and skin continue aging? I personally love pure white hair and if I could skip the transition from natural to gray to white I would jump at the chance.
What do you all think of the coloring process? How old and do you ever plan on going completely white. Do you color? I think I won't spend much time or money on the process (don't hold me to this...) but I am curious.
Oh and by the way, the lady with the red orange hair? Ummmm yeah, that will be my sister Barb when we are very old and have to push each others walkers down the sidewalk. Heh!
