Curly or straight

Yesterday I decided to blow my curly hair straight.  Since it's shorter now, it was a breeze.  I received complements throughout the day.  Curly does hide the skunk line better than straight, but I'm at about 75% don't care mode.  There is still some vanity when it comes to my roots though.  

I'm loving the colors that are coming in.  I was concerned that there would just be white sprinkled throughout, but I see chunks of white.  I think it's going to look like a frosting once it's all in.  I'm loving the shorter hair too.  I miss my long hair, but there will be time for it.  It's been nice running with shorter hair too...especially in the summer.

I still have a long way to go though.  

Notice the frosted look?

The other side has less white and I find myself parting it there with a zigzaggy part.  

Anyway...even though I am loving the colors that are coming in, I still worry about looking older.  I have always been proud of looking younger than I am.  I'm hoping I'm still happy with the colors when all the dye is cut off.

Till the next inch...or sooner...

August 12 - Still holding strong's been since July 21 since I've posted here.  My gray is coming in nicely.  I vary my part from side to side to mask the skunk line, although lately, it's been blending into my curls.  I drove home with my convertible top down and noticed how brassy my hair is.  This is the part that I'm not excited about.  What I am happy about is how my gray looks around my face.  It looks like I have a weaving.  I have more white on the top, but it's marbled with dark.  I really am looking forward to my natural color.  Next time I'll post pictures.  It's bed time...we are running a 10K Mud Run in the morning...night.
