Natural Hair Update

I am now at 20 weeks without any artificial hair coloring and I love it! When you color your hair and the first strands of natural hairs start popping out at your scalp, it can be quite frightening. It looks like every strand of hair is going to age you 20+ years. However, if you are patient and open minded to what can occur, it really isn't that bad. Some of the gray strands have already started taking on a life of their own, going every which way, but that is just part of the deal. Overall, the transition hasn't been that tragic. My natural hair is coming in darker than the colored with gray highlights that personally, I kind of like. I like seeing my hair as it is naturally and knowing that I am living by my own expectations.
