Natural and Gray
As I continue my journey in life, I become more aware of organics, and that includes deciding aganst putting any chemicals in my hair. So, I have decided to stop using perms to straighten my hair, and I no longer wish to cover my gray. The choice I have made, allows me more freedom for several reasons. The hair cut is short and easy to care for. I have also found products that work well and are listed as organic.
For many years I colored my hair. Different shades of black and brown, and hennas also. I was also getting my hair permed. So every 4-6 weeks, a new chemical would be used. I never took the time to research how these chemicals could possibly cause me health problems; plus I just felt it was time to give my hair a break. Accepting and embracing my age and the way I look with gray hair, was a big step. Now I am okay with it.
Now, I just wash and go. Being over 50 and working from home, allows me the freedom I have been seeking for years. As I am changing my pace in life, I feel more in balance and at peace, eating more natural and healthy foods, and gradually changing my lifestyle to be totally natural.
