Since this post, I haven’t colored my hair. Not out of any philisophical reason, but just because I haven’t gotten around to it. First I like it. There is more gray than like, but I like that the dark hair is really, really dark. I think in general, I look at little more dramatic. Second , DH likes it. He is also happier that my hair is longer. And the third part is very interesting. I’ve had a few, very sincere compliments from men that had no need to compliment me. I really can’t remember the last time a stranger complimented me out of the blue for no reason. Maybe going gray is the way.
