Now, at eight months into “Project Go Grey,” I have nothing to write about my hair.
Yes, I still love the way it looks. This last appointment, just before the holidays in December, was fun – mostly because the salon was so crowded and Kathleen Flynn-Hui was so busy and simply buzzing. But, as always, she found lots of time to spend and talk with me. I love how she asks me what I want to do with my hair each time. I think she knows, by now, that the answer is going to be “whatever you say, boss.” I’ve told her more than once that if she told me to dye it pink, I’d probably listen. At this point, I just trust her so much.
Beyond feeling both blonder and greyer than ever, and noticing some change in the texture of my hair -- it seems somewhat coarser than it did when I died it black, which everyone said would happen – there just isn’t much to say. I’m assuming that from here on out, until the grey is fully grown out, things will mostly be the same. It is probably time to speak with Kathleen about the next steps – what my maintenance plan should be once everything is grown out.
I suppose that, beyond the specifics of my hair, what I’ve noticed is that the willingness to go grey is either a symptom of, or the catalyst for, the desire to make some serious changes in my life. I wrote before about how I’ve altered my diet, and my beauty routine, as a result of going grey. But suffice it to say that in terms of work and home, there are other exciting changes afoot as well. I can’t spill the beans yet (and no I’m not pregnant), but I’m looking forward to a 2012 full of beautiful grey hair and thrilling news.
