Finally My Bangs are Almost Grown Out

A year ago, I spoke about growing my bangs out. When they reached that awful mid-length, I cut 'em off again. I've done this over and over again! Three months ago I decided to try again, to grow out my bangs. They are finally about 1/2 inch from putting behind my ears! Vanity? Heck no! I just want a simple way to keep my hair, without looking ten year+older. Age isn't a big deal with me. I look forward to sharing in September, the fact that my odometer has turned over to 70 years old. As a kid I told the entire world, I was older than I look. Now, aging is just another blessed day, spent with the people I love Photo: Mine(no longer hiding the gray)

It took me a while to grow out my bangs. One friend didn’t like the look, but I do. That’s all that matters. No gray hair for me, but you rock it!

I was surprised when Jay said, 'Don't cut your bangs, I like them better this way.' He never says one word about my hair, until now

@DianneN One of his last girlfriends had long hair, like Cher Bono. That's a sixties hairdo, he still loves it!

I turned 70 the past February and I do not hide the gray either, gray hair is in fashion. You look great in this photo.

@kobesbuddy It was so much annoying having to color the hair every two weeks.

@LadyDuck At times my hair looked awful, trying to hide the gray roots! Also, those chemicals were causing damage to my hair and my scalp.

Your hair looks great. When my hair gets a certain length I can not stand it either and will trim in between going to my friend for a hair cut.

I would mess my bangs up, about three times a year! Then, I'd whine about it

I agree with what you just said. I'm just learning to appreciate especially the small things, that God does for us:)

@kobesbuddy That's the simplest we could do to appreciate the simple and small things that could enliven our life.

I let mine grow out, then cut them, always back and forth it seems.

Through the pandemic, I would wash my hair and then tie it back, that was all.

i know how bad it is growing out bangs, but when they do i kinda want to cut them again. You look really pretty + gray hair is cool now, even some younger people dye their hair gray

@kobesbuddy you're welcome but why are you saying these things, by looking at you anyone can tell that God has been generous with you in the looks department, for sure.

My hair was unhealthy and brittle, from all the chemicals in dye. Also, my scalp wasn't healthy.

Since I grown my bangs, it's been that way until these days.

If I finally cut them, I'll need to keep them properly trimmed forever. I hate that!

That's a lovely picture of you. I think I like it either way. Maybe a little more without the bangs. The first thing I did when I retired was let my gray grow out. I love it!

Two years ago, I stopped fighting gray roots. My hair was breaking off and my scalp was in terrible shape. Chemicals are very harsh!
