How is my grey grow out going? I am pleased you asked, because here is a little grey grow out update.
I have about 6cm of natural hair colour proudly marching over my head which I suppose I could get cut shorter to loose the dyed red ends altogether. But I think I am going to keep the style I have and not go all Jamie Lee Curtis on my hair. Her hair is nice, but I don’t want it that short. Not that short and grey anyway. I have had very short hair before, so I wonder why I don’t want to go short again and get rid of the faded red dye?
Answers on a postcard please…
Maybe because that is the archetypal grey look, apart from the granny curls followed by a blue rinse. Or a purple rinse. You don’t see many blues and purple rinses about in the grey set any more do you? Maybe I should bring it back, I fancy a purple rinse but hold the perm please.
I don’t think I am quite ready for a new cut as well as a new colour, even though I have been watching the grey/white/brown emerging since April I still think of it as a ‘new’ colour. I keep pulling my hair back off my face to get an idea of the final natural grey look, sometimes I am a bit alarmed, but mainly I am quite liking it.
To be honest, not having to dye my hair is a complete joy in itself, apart from the excessive chemical application almost every month, I just don’t miss the fuss and potential horror of dyeing the sink or my shoes or the bathroom floor by accident. I did flick dye onto the bathroom door once by accident and that didn’t go down too well especially as I hadn’t noticed until it was well and truly part of the white door. Whoopsie. Have you had any dyeing mishaps? That was my only dyeing oopsie.
I have been totally noticing grey ladies of a certain (younger) age lately and making little mental notes, all positive, I still think that natural dramatic grey is a fab look. Let’s see how dramatic mine ends up, hopefully more grey gorgeous and less George Clooney (yes, I know he is a handsome devil, but I want to look at him, not like him thanks).
So, after all this, I am pretty sure I am on a single track to natural grey hair in my forties and I am quite happy with that. If you want to see where this all started, have a look here (on my old blog) and here.
