Title: H--Hair Color
Tags:
Blog Entry: My hair has been several colors over the course of my lifetime.  I thought of this today, because I just ran across a photo of me taken...well, maybe 5 or 6 yrs ago. It's one of my favorite photos of myself--and yes, I'm 'blonde' in it.    I don't care if it's not 'current'; I like it--so I'm going to use it for a while!   I was born blonde. But by the time I was 8 or 9, my hair had turned into a very light brown--'dishwater blonde' they called it. By the time I reached my teens, my mom was 'blonde' and I guess I decided 'why not'.   So, my mom bleached it for me and put in a nice shade of blonde color. Now, I can remember one time something went wrong: I had orange hair for a day before we could re-do it.  But we 'fixed' it and I became accustomed to being Blonde.   I was 'platinum blonde' for a number of years.   Think Lonie Anderson in WKRP in Cincinnati. Later, I went to a more natural blonde look.  Naturally, since I was blonde when I met my (now) husband, he preferred me that way.  But by the time I was in my 30's, I decided to just 'see' what my natural color was like; I did that several times over the years. And I was very surprised to out find that my 'natural' color had gone to a pretty dark brown! Well, technically it's a 'medium brown', but to me, it's pretty darn dark!   Back then, I always decided to go back blonde again.   A few years ago, I decided it was too much trouble keeping it blonde; so I went back to my natural color which, now has some silver in it.   I don't mind the silver at all.  And I actually kind of like it being 'natural'.  But even though I'll never again color my hair, I'll never forget how much I enjoyed being blonde.
