I will admit that the process of planning and executing a DIY wedding was a bit stressful. However, I had no idea just how bad it was until I recently started noticing just how much gray hair I have started seeing on my head. I’m a lady so I won’t disclose my age. But I will say that I’m in my thirties. I’ve never had to dye my hair, unless I wanted to change the color, mostly add a black tint to my dark brown locks for added sheen.
But last night as a I looked into the mirror I realized that I had several very long strands of gray hair. What? Ok, I’ll admit that for the past 3 or 4 years I’ve had 2, maybe 3 gray hairs deeply hidden within my very thick hair. Over the past month or so I’ve noticed more and more of them showing up around the edges of my hair lines. These are the pests that show up when I slick my hair back into a ponytail. However, the final straw are the long hairs that are now just turning white. Not new gray hairs growing in. My current hair is actually changing to gray. This Christian had a true WTF moment (pardon my French)
I thought hair going gray was supposed to be a gradual thing that happened over time, not over 6 months. That’s exactly how long I had to plan this wedding. And I think that crazy time may have sped up the gradual process of my hair evolving to another color.
Some may say what’s the big deal. My husband already has salt n pepper hair. But I didn’t think I would rub off onto me. He has embraced being old, but I haven’t. The scariest part is that I don’t know just how gray I am in the back. I actually spent a good amount of time combing through my hair trying to find them. I don’t know why because I do think that if you pull one, three will grow back in it’s place – LOL.
So what do I do now? I’d hate to think I need to start dying my hair with harsh chemicals that will color these very coarse gray strands. But what other option do I have? Nevertheless, I am certain that I didn’t’ have this concern a year ago, before I started planning a wedding.
