For the record: Knockin' at the door of Silver Foxdom


Let it be known for the record that this is the year that I'm going gray. I predict that that I'll be salt & peppah within the next five. I've stopped dying my hair due to massive lossage. The bathroom floor began to resemble a black flotaki (ew). Instead of looking toward holistic alternatives & hennas, I've decided to let nature take it's course. I can't wait until I look like this silver foxy lady above. Hopefully, it'll be sooner rather than later. I wish I could skip this in between scraggly stage and wake up with a head of gleaming follicles, à  la Leland Palmer. Ain't she a beaute??

  1. I saw that a little while ago and was like, "Damn does she make aging look good."
    I had no idea you dyed! I dye because I started getting greys when I was 23, and now it's gotten progressively worse. I try to dye every 6 weeks or so, but often times I go three months!

  2. I tried that almost two years ago. I'm salt and pepper and after The Pea was born my hair was in such terrible shape that I chopped it all off. I did the S&P pixie thing for about three months before I got tired of people staring at my head and then my face and trying to "figure it out" (I look tres young for my 40 years).

    But damn if you won't look gorgeous whatever you do.

  3. it's true! i used to dye it blue/black. 23 is pretty young! do you have a good gray to brown ratio?

    not coloring has saved a lot of time and money!

  7. Colour me clueless-I thought it was au naturale!
    Yeah I know! I think it was stress + heredity.
    I don't unfortunately. It started out behind my ears and wraps around to the back of my head, but this past year I started getting greys on my crown. Fortunately, my grey takes colour really easily so I just use cheap store brand dye. :)

  9. we'll have to start the phoenix chapter of silver foxes. it's quite a commitment. it's been two years for me and i'm still fighting the temptation to go back to black.

  10. Originally my hair was light brown, I used to colour it shades of auburn, I found it was fading toomuch, so I decided to let nature take its course, I'm glad I did, I am silver all over, I think it is very striking
