Silberhaar

Posted on | November 18, 2009 | 18 Comments |

I really do love my hair. I enjoy the soft weight of it against my shoulders. I delight in brushing it across the chest (or lower down) of a lover. I am pleased that I can plait it, bun it, put it in a ponytail, curl it in fat pigtails, or just clip it back.

And I love the colour of my hair. It’s a luscious dark brown, with red and auburn highlights in the sun, and has delicate silver hairs radiating out from my temples.

My hair reminds me – often – of my mothers. But while I used to assist her in dying her hair every month (to hide her grey, which she hated), I really love my silver hairs. The contrast, the strength, and the beauty of them.

I started to go grey in my mid-twenties. My mother started to go grey in her thirties. My brother was starting to go grey when he was just thirteen. But it’s all about perception. While mum dyed her hair, and my brother keeps his shaved short, I call my grey ‘silver’ (because it is, really – nearly white), and don’t have the slightest desire to hide it. My hair is as it is. And I love it.

    I have dyed my hair a bright red for the last year, just because I like the color I choose. But I know when I start seeing the grey/silver, I am just going to let it show. :)

    peace…

    Love your hair! Against our back – it looks amazing!
    And I think the sexiest thing is when a woman accepts and grey(silver) hair and rocks it. Why hide it!
    Happy HNT!

    Silver is awesome.. I'm sure it only adds to your gorgeousness. I'm in my mid 40s and still have only 3 or 4 white hairs on my head.. got a few eyebrows and whiskers though. Until they multiply, I'll probably keep being guessed at my mid-30s.. not a bad thing, but I feel like I've earned some silver wisdom hairs ;-)

    I wish I'd see more of your hair, but from the pics and description it does sound lovely.

    Bent and Vice – It certainly is :)

    Vixen – *smiles* Thank you.
