I swear I just had my roots done a few weeks ago, but it is winter time in New England. And you know what that means? Your dark roots will start to show a mere three weeks after a highlighting. I love my hair stylist. Patrick is the best. It’s not his fault I have dirty blond hair and I live in Rhode Island. This never happened when I lived in Texas, and I digress. I’m here to let you know it’s OK to let your roots shine, girls. It happens from time to time. Do you know how many moms out there don’t even have the time to get their hair done professionally? They’re lucky to fit in a shower in between all the night feedings and toddler tantrums. One of my dearest friends brought my roots to my attention to my surprise when I was working full-time. At the time, my son was three and my daughter was six months old. Oh my, I remember those days. A shower was an accomplishment. I have a mommy friend that shares pictures of her dark roots on Facebook, God bless her! Here’s a thought: The next time your friend shares her root rage with you, offer to take care of her kids for a couple of hours so she can have some time for herself and get her hair done.
