I've gotten so many compliments on it. I was completely surprised by that. It makes me wonder how bad my hair looked before!!!


    Good for you. I've seen lots of women with silver/gray hair that looked beautiful. You have to know when its time. My poor grandmother was still dyeing her hair into her late 70's and it was turning all kinds of funky colors (pink, purple, orange, you name it) because her hair wouldn't take the color anymore. After she started getting Alzheimer's, my mom and aunts convinced her to give up the hair dye. Now her hair is a beautiful snow white.

    Just do what I do and you won't have to worry about dyeing your hair.

    I'll bet there are a ton of women on here who could admit to at least thinking about shaving their head so they don't have to bother with it any more.

    Me too! But my head has a funny shape, so it's really not an option, unfortunately.

    I thought I was they only one who did this! Sometimes the rest of my hair just looks and feels too good and I don't want to wash that away, so I just freshen up by washing and blowdrying my bangs. It's great for days when I don't have time to dry my super long hair.

    When I lived in Florida I used to dream about shaving my head. Now when I get one of those hot flashes where it feels like your head has caught on fire, I still think about shaving it. I could buy lots of wigs in different colors and styles and have a different hairstyle and color for every mood and outfit.

    Can someone tell me the benefits of sulfate-free shampoo?

    What I've read is that sulfates are basically a detergent -- they help create suds, and your hair does get clean, but it's harsh on hair, and can dry it out and damage it. I've been using sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner for a while now, and while my hair does seem softer, I've also made some other changes so I can't tell you 100 percent that it's the lack of sulfates.
    Sulfate-free stuff can be hard to find, but L'Oreal has a line out, as does Burt's Bees, and if you've got a Trader Joe's nearby, they have sulfate-free hair stuff too, for very cheap. That's what I use. As do organic/health food stores.

    With respect to finding soaps/shampoos without sulfates, check the ingredients for laureth or laurel. That is a short form for sodium laureth sulfate.

    Re: Hair problem or questions

    My son and I have dyshidrosis aka Pompholyx, and one of our triggers is SLS. Our hands break out in tiny blisters that hurt a lot and don't go away for weeks. He's currently going through rounds of antibiotics and steriod creams right now because he got a staph infection in his hand from them.

    So for some like me, the benifits are they don't cause allergic reactions.
