September 19th, 2010, 09:15 PM
It's a few days early because I have to work this week but what's a few days? :D

It's been a journey for sure! In August 08' I went cold turkey, no more dye! Today, I have 100% dye free virgin hair and I couldn't be happier!

On with the pics!

September 08' color treated hair with Garnier 501. I can't believe I still remember the color but I do.

November 08' the silvers are coming through!

It's been wild and crazy watching my hair transform for the better in these last 2 years. My journey is no where near complete! I'm so over the never ending cycle of dying every 4-6 weeks! I'd be a liar if I told you I didn't miss my length but I have no regrets on cutting it off just so I could say it was 100% natural! :D

Your hair looks wonderful, Addy! I can only imagine how thrilled you are that the last of the dye is gone, and now you can enjoy the journey all the more.

You're really on your way now, and I am so excited to see just where you'll be next year. And remember, this really is a journey, not a race. Enjoy it.

Congratulations on a very successful two years. :blossom:

I think your natural color is beautiful, I think it suits you wonderfully. That's a really great progress you made cutting off all of your chemically treated hair. Congrats!

You're really on your way now, and I am so excited to see just where you'll be next year. And remember, this really is a journey, not a race. Enjoy it.

That's really beautiful. I never really thought of it that way. Time to smell the roses, right? :D
