A little over a year ago I wrote about my hair. I love my hair! It doesn't always fall the way I'd prefer it to - curly hair often has a mind of its own - but I wouldn't trade it for any other color, texture or temperament.
My curly hair tends towards flat and wavy in winter due to the indoor dryness and the often outdoor dryness. The one exception is just after washing my hair when there is some humidity in the air on a rainy day; that's when the winter curls express themselves, only to flatten after a night's sleep.
Last month, after my washed hair had dried, I asked my husband to take a picture of the back so I could see what my hair looked like; that's the picture at the top of this post. What impressed me at the time was the array of colour in the ringlets. My hair has long been darker red underneath, in the areas not exposed to sun and wind.
The blondish highlights are the result of sun, chlorine, and mostly the slowly turning to gray (silver? white?) of my hair. What impressed me was the dark, dark gray (almost like a deep solid brown) that seemed to be present in alternating parts of the ringlets. And yet, when I look at the picture now, I don't even see those gray-brown hairs, though I do see varying shades of red to blonde to brown.
I am intrigued by the colour journey of my hair and curious to see where it goes. As for what's on my mind at the moment - how to style a receding hairline.
