What color are you?


Up until I was 17, I was a Brunette. Then I went away for the summer to a "Creative Youth" program and came home as a Strawberry Blonde.

The next 4 years through college, I was varying shades of Auburn (dark red) with some unfortunate Oranges in the mix.

Then I went back to Brunette when I started my professional career until I got bored and went Auburn/Redhead again 6 years ago. It was wonderful but my hair has problems keeping the color and I always ended up kind of orange-y by the time summer was over. I guess it is all the sun and chlorine (darn triathlon training).

2 years ago, my hairdresser Keri and I decided to bring my original Brunette color back by letting my hair grow and grow and I had been enjoying my natural color again ....

Now thanks in no small part to Interferon Alpha 2B Recombinent Therapy and Melanoma, I find myself losing my hair. Not in big dramatic clumps but in long brunette strands.

Wash my hair and clean the drain ...
Brush my hair and clean the brush, my shirt and the floor...
Run my fingers through my hair and they are tangled in hair when they come out.

Every week it is getting thinner. My workout ponytail is pretty pathetic these days.

I'm considering a buzz cut and a wig but I can't decide who has more fun? Blonds, Brunettes or Redheads? And of course I will consult with Jim because he is my guy and I like him looking at ME!! Hehehe!

Your thoughts? If you could change your color randomly - what would you be?
Suggestions on what you think might look good for me are welcome!

--- NOTE OF IRONY---
I just noticed for the first time that in none of my triathlon pictures in the header do you ever see my hair. LOL!

Man, I love your attitude! I would go red, but that's in large part because my man has a thing for redheads. I think it would be fun to build up a variety. I mean, it's not like it's a secret that it's a wig, is it? It would be fun to go a little crazy with it. Plus, a buzz cut sounds like it would be nice for training. Easy wash and go. :)

I would go with something totally different. That would be dark brunette for me. Why not go blond?

A buzz would be easy up keep!! No doubt about that...

I have been looking around on the web and there are tons of wonderful wigs and also scarfes. I don't know why I didn't think of scarfs as another option...

I have a sister who is blonde and one who is light brunette .. I might be able to pull off blonde.. hmmmm...

I've always been a redhead, and I think you'll have fun if you go that color!

If I could have ANY color hair, I'd pick red, but I'd pick a more BRIGHT & BRILLIANT red than mine (which is a quite subdued red - lots of people say I'm not *really* redheaded at all - GRRRRRRRRRRR!)
