Ready to do something drastic . . .


. . . or somewhat drastic, anyway. One of my girlfriends at book club last night had recently gotten a new hair color - the most luscious shade of dark chocolate I think I've ever seen. And now I can't stop thinking about it!

I've been coloring my hair since I was a teenager, and I've tried enough hues that I honestly don't even know what my actual, natural color is anymore. I'm guessing a dingy, mousy brown. With lots of gray. I've been platinum, strawberry blonde, dark brown, dark auburn, and for the last few years . . . I dunno . . . copper?? I'm ready for a change. Stay tuned.

And that's the most exciting thing I have to say right now, folks. Other than the fact that Michael had a really rough week with this first post-surgery cycle of chemo. But he's not crazy about my blogging about him, so I won't say anything ;p

I'm going to say one of these might look nice.

I hope Michael feels better soon.

I say GO FOR IT and then post pictures!!! :) And if you find a brand that colors gray well, please share.....all of the sudden nothing covers my gray. I'm at my wit's end and hate being 40ish! :(

I can't wait to see what you decide. I have soooooooooooo much gray [actually it is snow white] I wnat to figure out how to go 'white' but in the mean-time my youthful shade of dark-brown wins out [out of the bottle that is]

Tell Michael I think about him often.

That is the beauty of coloring - you can try something out and if you don't like it, try something else relatively soon! DO IT - it is fun to change the hair a bit now and then (though I do LOVE your current color and try in vain to get my colorist to copy it)...And hugs to you and Michael - I wish I had been at book club last night to visit in person...Lisa

you are so lucky to have medium shade eyebrows.. It makes all that variety possible! :) I'd look like a freak... LOL
