It's SO Good To Be Back!!!

Hello, my friends. Well, a few day's vacation from blogging turned into a few weeks, which then turned into a few months, which ended up turning into 21 months! Life just got crazy busy in so many ways, and the Internet wasn't on my mind, I'm afraid. Time does fly though. It doesn't feel as though I've been away from you for that long.

Since I last posted, I turned 50 and this year I turned 51. I like it! I still feel young, but I feel that I have more wisdom (I hope). I still have so much more to learn, though. I said to a friend recently that I wouldn't go back to being 18 for ANYTHING. I mean it. I wouldn't even go back to being 40, or 30. Truly.

I've trimmed more hair than I've grown since I last blogged, but it was to remove the thin ends caused by what I now know was a pre-menopausal shed. I'm back in growing mode. My hair is now 28 inches/71 cm long, just about three inches from being well at waist length. I don't regret the trimming at all. This is the thickest that my ends have ever been at this length.

 I no longer have a particular goal in mind, but I'm just going to see how long my hair will grow and still look decent at the ends. As I've said before, fairytale ends look beautiful on some people, but not on me, with my very fine, straight, hair. I really would like to get to tailbone if possible, but we'll see.

 My hair is in good condition. I've really got my hair care regimen simplified though. I pretty much just wash it with conditioner, put a few drops of olive, coconut or jojoba on it, bun it when dry, and that's it, these days. When I'm feeling ambitious, I do a deep treatment of some sort, but not often enough. I'm happy to say that I don't have any split ends, even when I look with a magnifier.

So much has changed since I was last here, but I'll get into that in later entries. For now, I'll leave you with my latest length shots and my comparison photo (All photos clckable for larger viewing).

I have missed you all so much! Love to all, and extra hugs to anyone feeling ill today. xoxo

  4. Thank you, Alexandriaweb! I appreciate it. I'm pleased with my hair right now. Ohtawen! I've certainly missed you. Thank you about my hair. With the straight-across hemline, it looks longer from the front than it ever has before, and I quite like that. :)

  6. Hi, you have very long and great hair, i´m 21 and i think that is a great idea that women in their 40 or 50 have long hair. What is the length that you want to reach? You will look great with a waist length or maybe a hip length. Please keep growing your hair you will look very atractive, sorry for my english i´m from south america

  8. First, your hair looks formidable and just the way I would like to have mine. Do you think following your regime would give me the same results? Do you take any supllements/specific foods/etc and how did you brush it before taking the photos? Did you use any heat to make it look straight? I would appreciate to receive an answer. Thank you.

  9. Hi Maissaa. My hair is naturally straight. My hair looks the way it does because of my regime. I do not use supplements.

    My husband gives my hair a quick brush with a natural bristle brush before taking my photos.

    Thank you for reading.
