Just between you and me...

So I've been getting questions lately about my hair...so here goes. I've been blonde all my life. Until January that is. I couldn't afford the upkeep and my hair was seriously going to fall out of my head it was in such poor shape.
So I went to my natural hair color. I like to call it poop brown. Charming, I know.
But I think my hair is on strike or something, because it just refuses to grow. So, when I read about Aubrey using hair extensions...I jumped aboard the fake hair train. (Although, it is real human hair.)


And here are the results.

I think it's a pretty close match to my actual hair color. And I'm kinda in love with having long hair. :)

Not everyone is lucky enough to look good as a blonde and/or a brunette. You are blessed!

Wow- your hair looks gorgeous! And I would have never guessed that you had extensions put in! I love your natural color... I certainly wouldn't put the name on it that you have, haha! I think it suits you. :) And it is so much easier than all the upkeep of dye jobs and salon visits. :)

Great idea !
My hair refuses to grow anymore too but, I am about 10 years older....but, thinking back my hair started to slow down about 10 years ago. The back grows a little but my sides - they won't budge....I stopped highlighting about a year ago and try to not use heat on it very often......I dream of long hair - very cool !

Hi Susan, I just wanted to say that I LOVE your new hair color "poop brown" and all but then maybe I am a lil predjudiced cause it is just like mine! lol I too love long hair, mine is now to my waist and curly (more like frizzy) I think long hair looks marvelous on you too :) What helped me and my sister when our hair just wasn't growing, were some vitamins our mama got us, I believe they were from NEXUS, the hair and nails ones I think. They really worked, hair came in thick too (but we all have thick hair) Doesn't hurt to try, let me know if your intrested and I will ask my mama to make sure I am telling you the right ones :) p.s. I am really liken your blog :) Rose
