Yesterday morning, while on Facebook, I noticed The Pioneer Woman http://www.facebook.com/home.php?#!/pages/The-Pioneer-Woman-Ree-Drummond/111065157857?ref=mf was taking her daughters to get their hair cut. While perusing the internet I saw that Kate Gosselin recently paid $7000 (allegedly) for her new blond extensions. I knew that Great Clips has been running their deal, $6.99 haircuts, for a while. So I decided, hey, this is the day for my long needed trim. After work, I drove by a Great Clips, but alas, the $6.99 poster was not in the window. Expecting the worst, I parked and walked in, to find that yes, the deal is done. I said, "thanks" and left.
Yes, I know the regular price of a Great Clips trim is only $12, but I decided to head home, and cut it myself. I've trimmed it before - it's not that difficult. Plus, I never trim too much, that way if it looks too ghastly I still have something left for an actual stylist to work with. Honestly, it's just hair.
I'm happy with yesterday's trim, especially that it was free. Today I hope to get by Good Foods www.goodfoods.coop and purchase some henna http://www.light-mountain-hair-color.com/. You see, I'm going gray. I want to hide the gray. But, I don't want to use chemicals. Please, no offense if you're a dye-er. I have friends who dye, my sister dyes. I just really want to try this in a more "natural" way. Granted, completely natural would be letting the gray show, but, well, I just don't like it. I wear make-up on my face, why not a bit on my hair?
Color suggestions? I'm thinking I might end up in the red family. A place I haven't peronsally been. My husband's the red head. Or maybe keep mine in the light brown family. A bit dull, since that's what I've had most of my life, except for the blond college years. . . .
I noticed on the Light Mountain Natural Hair web page the question, "Can henna change your life?". While I seriously doubt it will, their answer is: "Maybe...But it will definitely change your hair. And with bright, lustrous, newly enhanced locks, who knows where the possibilities may lead?" So in a couple of hours, I'll leave work, pick up my henna, and find out - where the possibilities may lead.
