When I sat down with my Halloween issue of Just Cross Stitch, I realized that the PSS Rotted but not Forgotted chart was missing. Not to fear, Just Cross Stitch has a corrections page, and it’s linked there.
I was reading over at Lee Lake Stitcher’s blog that she decided to forgo the hair color and become au natural. A couple of years ago, I was sick of my hair – way over processed and so far from my natural color I could hardly remember what it should look like. I saw some girls with what looked like single strands of iridescent tinsel in their hair and thought it was so striking. Then I thought , if my hair wasn’t colored, I imagine I’d have my own tinsel… wonder how gray it really is? Then an article about gray hair being chic , owning who you are, redefining beauty at any age. For a variety of what others say, have a look here. Now, I know there are some of you who will say – I will always dye my hair - and I say – more power to you! But from my experience … without the color treatment I no longer have brown splotched door trims, base boards, and towels in my bathroom? Actually, I had given that up to spend countless hours in the shop with my hairdresser, not to mention the amount of stash money I was spending there. And so, to date there is not a drop of any residual color in my hair. There are gray streaks along the front, and quite a few iridescent tinsel strands through the rest – but here’s what I thought would be revealed (or this) – and actually it is like this. It is pulled and straightened here, but it's never as curly as that last image.
Speaking of hair – Pixie went to the groomer last Saturday. Sometimes our hair looks more alike than others! They must have gotten a little soap in her eyes – see how pink they are?
I'm grateful for less than 100˚
