To Dye or Not to Dye

Ok, for years I have highlighted my hair mostly during the summer. When I got pregnant again, I stopped and grew my natural hair free from any chemicals. My husband always loved my natural silky black hair. He said so on multiple ocassions while I had my highlights on. For about two years, I was quite happy with it.

But now it’s summer again and the idea of highlights is becoming more and more tempting. Jessica Alba—now that’s a whole lot of woman! ; ) Why bring her up? When I first laid eyes on her, she had jet black hair when she was doing Dark Angel or something like that. I never liked her then. I didn’t like the show and I didn’t like her character. I can’t remember the first movie I started liking her in. I do know that all the other movies I’ve seen her in, she had some or a lot of color on her hair.

It was then that I realized maybe that was the swinging vote I needed to finally jump into the “highlighting” wagon. Personally, I’ve always thought that a little splash of color on my hair made me look more approachable. The dark hair always looked very serious on me. However, I will lose the natural shine for sure as my husband had pointed out in the past. I guess it’s time for me to do what makes me feel good though. I kind of stayed with the natural color to please hubby too. It’s been two years, now it’s my turn. Hair Salon, here I come!


  1. I think you should! IT'S SUMMER TIME!!! Some nice highlights won't do any harm, especially when the sun beams on it, NICE! I thought of doing it myself, but my hair is dry enough and I know for a fact it will get worse. Go ahead. You pleased the hubby long enough and if the shine is what he is going to miss, just moisturizing weekly, that will definitely do the trick. I wanna see it when it's done. =-)

  2. I can't tell you how nice it is to see someone's comments on here. I should be careful what I wish for though because pretty soon, ugly comments are gonna show up but like I said, "brrrring it!" hehe!
