Hello. I hate posting intros, as I always feel a bit silly ... kind of like "Ta da! It's ME!"
But since I've been lurking here since July 2003 (embarrassing, but true) I thought it was about time.
I'd prefer to let myself be known gradually, through my posts, if that's okay. But as for the basics: I started at 17" in June 2003, and am currently at 23". I've had four GM treatments/trims during those 15 months. My hair type is 2b, normal ponytail thickness but fine (there's a lot of it).
My natural haircolor is a really ugly
dark ash brown which I've highlighted for the past 15 years. However, I started going gray last year at an astonishing rate, and my silvery gray hairs clashed with my warmer highlights. My family (on both sides) goes silver gray, which I think is just beautiful, so I've gone natural since June. I'm probably about 30-40% gray right now. Unfortunately, my
hair isn't particularly beautiful at the moment (it's a combination of graying roots with brassy looking ends), but I prefer to focus on the final result.
This seems like a really great community, and I hope I'll fit in.
2b, more messy than wavy
