For years, Donna used low-lighting to darken her white hair. Then one day, her stylist begged her to stop. In her words, she told Donna her white hair was “white light.”
Watch the video for the full story.
I went through this phase of low-lighting my hair with dark tones, low-lighting my gray hair.
I had this wonderful woman who did this work for me. And she cut my hair, and she told me stories about her life. And I kind of do therapy with her and it was a whole big relationship.
She starts saying, "Maybe you should let go of those lowlights." And I go, "Maybe." And then the next time she said, "How about trying that?" I go, "Maybe. I'll think about it."
And one day she stops.
She stands there looking at the mirror, puts her hand on my shoulder and says, "Look. I make my money coloring your hair and I am begging you to stop. You have white light around your head with this white hair. And that's what you're supposed to be doing.”
I actually have chills as I'm saying it because I had never really gotten until that moment about the white light. That white hair is white light.
I cut my own hair and it just sparkles. And I am happier with my hair than I've ever been.
