Older women with long hair

2009 was the year I decided to grow my hair long again. The year I turn 42, I am on a journey to beautiful, dignified, lovely long grey hair! I am convinced this will be a wonderful thing for me, but you know, just say I get my long hair and then don't like it, what'll I do? Shrug my shoulders and cut it all off. BUT I will know for sure that wasn't what I wanted, instead of always wondering.

Have a read here about long hair on women over 40.

Perhaps being an older woman with long hair is a type of retro-rebellion? I kinda like that!


Where I am now. Long way to go, but I am happy to be on the long-hair journey. A journey that I will take continuing to wash my locks in 50:50 bicarb (baking soda) and honey, condition it with diluted lemon juice, and give it treatments as needed with coconut oil and jojoba oil. Probably will trim it every 3 to 4 months at the hair dressers so the long layers look right.

Some more interesting reading about long hair, and about going gray gracefully:

I'll have long dreads over 40 (in about 2.5 years). So, I get to REALLY make a statement! heh. heh.
