It was a painful few months to let my old color grow off. I wasn't sure I wanted to cut my hair so short to get rid of the frizzy colored ends. Yesterday, I had a weak moment, ran into Great Clips and ask to have all the colored ends CUT OFF. So here I am, almost to my gray. ;) I guess I do look older, but really, I am soooo tired of coloring my hair. And my son doesn't care anymore. Before, he would have been a little embarrassed to have a gray-haired mom dropping him off at elementary school. Now ... he loves my color. Woo Hoo. Free at last.
