Fro Fashion Week Spring 2012
The Fashionista Next Door and Hair Gurl
Gray Hair - Some people gray early. I started seeing a few gray hairs here and there starting in my late 30's. Now they are EVERYwhere! Gray hairs do not behave the same as my other hair. They are wiry and ornery.
Thinning Hair - My hair is sort fine or thin to begin with. I have been dealing with additional thinning hair for awhile.
Age appropriate styling - Do you really want to see me in 2 Afro puffs? I am not saying that I can't rock them in an appropriate situation. I just like to keep things mild for my tastes. My Choice.
Retaining Moisture - The older I get the dryer my hair seems to get.
Finding chicks in the natural hair community that are in my age group! Pleease don't get me wrong I looove my young chicas that allow me to hang with them at events, meet ups, shows etc. They accept me, they compliment me and they inspire me. But sometimes I feel like the older Auntee that's still trying to hang!! LOL But seriously...
There are many more that I deal with and I will get into some of my solutions to these issues in a later post. The bottom line is this. Ain't Nooobody getting younger. One day YOU will be over 40 years old. I am here to tell you that I don't think that I truly began to live life until I turned 40. I've never felt more alive and vibrant. I feel beautiful and I love myself. Don't fight aging. Be that Fine Wine. Go with the flow and enjoy life. I know I am and I intend to show you just how much! It's never too late to live your dreams!!
