Whats the big deal about highlights in hair -- Hmmph

Recommended Posts

VickySGV

Ok, I have been having my hair colored in a copper red for a year now to hide my gray, and went for some red-blond highlghts today. Everybody else thinks they look great, but I can't feel them, or really notice them, or nothing without a mirror. I always imgagined you could feel special color and highlight jobs, and envied the girls that had them for how they felt special about the way there hair was!! Plus that it darn near doubled my salon bill!! What a let down!! Just another one of those reality things about living full time. Dang it, it just feels like my hair, why didn't that change?: Unfair.

I am actually laughing about this because I imagine myself having a tantrum and wrinkling my nose at life. It is a silly thought and totally unreal even for me, but its still there.

I have to re-install my web-cam software first, but I will get a picture posted in my gallery.

I wish i could have my scalp done but in the meantime i have settled on a medium length wig that seems to really work for me. A reddish base with blond streaks. I couldn't contain myself when a woman told me to make sure i got the numbers from my hairdresser as it was "Just Perfect". I could have doffed my cap to her but my baldness might have blinded. Anyway it feels good to know that the hair is working and looking good.

Enjoy Vickie and try not to have a hissie fit that you can't feel the difference. I told my wife that i'm allowed to have hissie fits now and i could also be a female dog sometimes as i was now female. I'll have to remember to wrinkle my nose.

Hugs,

Charlie

I have been coloring my hair, medium brown, with violet mixed in with the brown. Then I would have ash blonde highlights added to the mix. Sometimes I would add in a Burgandy Red as lowlights. I have been doing this combination for over 3 years nows. I wanted to change the ash blonde highlights to a blue for this trip, but I hair dresser was not available, so I stayed with the regular combination.

Hair only, not the color. I was being silly in my OP, and meant to be that way!!!

      Your eyes look great!   Don't fret about them.  I like the outfit too! 
    • BrandenLeon
      i just got my packer in the mail today and i put it on with my binder. and this feeling i am feeling right now is amazing. i am starting to cry form it. it feels like i am safe.   when i was young i always knew there was something missing in my life, but i never knew what it was. i always felt empty on the inside form it. and now i know what was missing form me so long ago. i am crying with how happy i am form this feeling i have found now. it feel so good. i feel so happy right now i can't even explain it.

      My eyes look so old. I’ve got to do something about that. I have to get a cucumber. 
    • DeeDee
      Yay Josie! Looking good! 🤗

      Hi, due to my weight and being overly hairy at the moment in all the wrong places I suffer regularly from Jock itch during the summer months. (I feel like I am permanently on creams for it) I am just wondering if there is any practical underwear that is for everyday use out there that helps avoid this issue. 😳😳😳
    • Josie Beth
      Pardon the stubble and no makeup but I was so excited to put this outfit on that I had to share the picture. It’s really doing a lot to boost my confidence about going full time in the future. Maybe not in outfits like this all the time but I like most of what I see in the mirror. 
    • BananaPowered95
      Wise words! I feel like im finding who I truly am finally! Ill start trying to use more masculine clothing maybe and see how it feels probably... Letting my masculine side free!   It's strange to look back and see my denial of my feelings 
    • SugarMagnolia
      That's really good! It definitely makes an emotional connection with me. Well done ❤️
    • SugarMagnolia
      What great updates, Michelle. Thank you for sharing! It's always good to take those scary first steps and have them turn out well ❤️

      Hugs,

      Yes we all have our unique stories yet we are very similar.  No aliens here!   You can be the person you wish to be.  Life isn't always easy, even for cis people, so jump in and be you, be happy.    Jani
    • Jani
      You are certainly not alone.  There are many of us that have similar experiences and we are happy.  You can be too.  Be you!
    • BananaPowered95
      I've been checking the forums lately - it's interesting how many of us have different experiences ! And how others feel like this, I always thought I was an alien! I identified with a lot of stories here and it's nice knowing I'm not alone in this I have some thinking to do yet but being like this forever feels like hell Thanks y'all for the kind answers! Kudos! 😄
    • Jani
      Hello Kylara and welcome!  Thank you for sharing.  You are correct that you can go as far as you wish and be comfortable with your choice.  Bravo for you.  It sounds like you and your wife have a great life.  See you around!     Jani
