So I chopped most of mine off today. 13 inches snipped away & 11 inches donated to:
Hair is such a consuming topic, isn't it? The cut, the color, long, short, too much, lack of...it's never ending.
And everyone seems to have an opinion about it. Total strangers might approach to ask about your stylist or haircut. Family members let it be known how they feel about your current color or style.
Heaven forbid you decide to make a major change.Even today, as I sat in the salon chair, women came by to see what was going on with the crazy lady hacking off all her hair. "What possessed you to cut off all your hair?!?!" "I could never cut off my hair." "You're so brave." "You're not coloring it?! You actually want to have gray hair?!" (All said with an air of Southern sweetness. Haha!)
Yep. I heard it all today. And since I stopped coloring it last year, people feel the need to share their opinion. "Do you mind the gray?" "Boy, you sure are gettin' white-headed!" "Why in the h*** don't you cover up that gray hair?!" True story. A male (not even related!) actually said that to me.
Why do people have such a hang-up about hair? I think it's kinda cool to have gray hair. It shows the world I've lived. I'm embracing the gray. I like the gray. Please say you like the gray, too! ;)
Nah. Truly. I don't care if you like it or not. It's only hair. I'm just happy I still have some.
The glory of the young is their strength;
the gray hair of experience is the splendor of the old.
Gray hair is a crown of glory;
it is gained by living a godly life.
What's your hair story?
