Hugs.

I took a walk outside around town and cemetary hill today.  A little cool but ok. 34F cloudy a little windy.  I wore a coat, but I saw guys around here out in shorts.
Not many folks out, which is normal here.
Next time I'll shoot a couple photos and hit you up for help, Northern Star Girl :)


Doing a little more makeup, embracing being a girl. 

Might even color my hair sometime.  Maybe.

I am lucky.
Thanks for checking on me. 
Have a nice day

@Maddie, if you color your hair what color would you go for? I have had my hair colored in a salon as I am too chicken to do it myself. I need to at least try. Anyhow, would you go lighter or darker?

Hey @Maddie thats a good question.  What color would you pick if you were to change? 

My sister did mine at first and after trying it myself I decided to go the salon route.  My hair is damaged from a certain medication I was on (hoping it grows back healthy) so going to a pro was a good choice for me.  I was ash blonde when I was younger so I went with a blonde that had slight red tint to it.  Since then I've had more red and brown added so it is nothing like my natural color but I really like it. 

I have a friend who does her own.  I've seen her do it and its super easy.  What do you say?

Nice to see this above, surely feels good to "get out".

I...don't ...know...
Probably start trying to blend in my natural color (darkish brown?) and reduce the grey some
Going all out different could be a bold transforming step to take...!
With salons closed, it must be pushing you closer to the end of the diving board...I'm chicken too
That's it!

Ha!  You are so right that it would be a bold step.  I was afraid of changing so much but I've found it helped me move forward as my true self.  Honestly I would probably do it myself again but leaning over the sink to rinse is hard on my back (ouch).  Spicy Red with a Fire engine red comb sounds wonderful! Something to maybe look forward to??

To review:
Mr Tom-ato shields little Miss Maddie Pepper
He withered and she blossomed...or did they?

Bam Bam bammm.....

Guess what... in this secluded garden, these are both perrenials!
That's right Tomato snuck back to protect her.  Sneaky.  I didn't even notice

Time is coming for miss pepperpot to dive into the big pond.  Over both their heads.
If Mr 🍅 is protective now,  how will she ever stay out front, out in the sun, where all the other flowers and pepperpots and dogs are watching....?
And they will see whichever face is out front

Bound to be tricky

You can do it, confidence, attitude do go a long way, no more shielding, just the real you  :)

In this place far beyond the shelter of the Internet support forum, real life awaits

Maddie, she will stay out in the sun because that is the place to grow!

Hi Maddie,

Sometimes things we do not expect happen and it turns out good. I have been going to a salon for years. Instead of going in-town to the salon I first went to, I tried a new salon. I was not too keen on the color. It was close but not what I was thinking. So I tried another new salon. It was expensive. I had a bit of platinum blond look to the base. I did not like it at first. It is growing on me.

I was thinking when PA and Philly opens back up I will make an appointment to my first salon. I will ask what they think about a little platinum mixed in with blond at different shades.

hair is so much fun and you have great hair. You may want to grab a color at CVS or super market and try to match your existing color or add a little variation but go slight change. When you feel more comfortable you can lighten or darken or change the color little by little.

You can have so much fun with hair. Good luck.

======================
When I put my dog to sleep I got a purple orchid and placed it where he sat in the bow window. He died the week before Thanksgiving. Today I got a white orchid plant to keep the purple one company. The purple plant has a new branch with 12 buds in different sizes. One opened today. On the other branch another bloom died. I try to learn from what nature is showing me.

Be well,
Rachel

I picked up a box of hair color that I think is close to my non-grey hairs.
Haven't used it yet, because of a bunch of natural curly hair care web blogs warning against using the cheap box stuff.  Interesting thing about the natural hair scene is that they talk about transitioning all the time, and they do not mean transitioning the same way as we do as transgender people.

It's snowing here

Ch, ch, changes.  Of all sorts.  ;)  I can't speak to the advisability of Clairol products.  Probably more a problem with long-term, regular use.   I suspect for experimentation it's not too bad, but I'm sure others here know more.

To color my hair I only use Garnier Olia products. It actually seem to improve my hair strength and texture.  I also use Garnier Fructis shampoo and conditioner with fairly good success which only costs $6 for the both of them.  My avatar pic is from this past Sunday right after I finished coloring.

When my hair grows longer I think I'll dye it. Not sure what color maybe a reddish.

Red highlights can look good too!
Always be kinder than needed.  Be tender to others.  You are as beautiful as the thoughts you think and the words that your speak.   Always stay cheerful, be polite, kind, and understanding.  Knowledge and action shown without love is not impressive.  If you look for the good in people you will find it. Healthy relationships are so important to good living.

Good living, joy, unity, love, and happiness can come from following these practices: Never let selfishness or conceit motivate you.  Regard others as more important than yourself.  Do not limit attention to only your interests, but include the interests of others

It is not usually about how fast you transition, it is about how well you transition.

That's a good idea. Maybe not highlighting the gray though. Lol
