go natural

For years I have been encouraging my mom to stop dying her hair. "You are beautiful as you are, you don't need to change anything! Go natural!" So when I started dying my own hair eight months ago, I definitely felt like a hypocrite. Eloise's pregnancy, birth and first year kicked the stuffing out of me, and also apparently the color in my hair. After she was born my hair turned from a deep, rich brown, to a grey-ish dishwater dust color. I'm not even quite 30 yet, peeps.
Up until this point in my life, some part of me believed if I wished hard enough, took vitamins, and left offerings at the Hair Goddess altar, someday I would have Arwen's hair. Now that my hair has, I don't know, decided color wasn't cool anymore, I've been liberated from this fantasy. Its been very freeing to imagine all the new hair possibilities, and what's more, I get to spend time with the fabulous Susie. She picks out all the best Kate mags and I get to do nothing for 2 hours, which is heavenly when you consider "Grown-ups need time alone honey, I can't be with you every minute of the day" came out of my mouth an hour ago.

And you know what? It all feels pretty natural to me.

  1. My hair turned to something dusty mouse-like in color too - so I dyed it for years. You are too young not to do it. :)
