Here I am to report on the hair situation. It is all grey, not even a teeny bit of dye left, it has been that way for a couple of months now and I like it!
I also like that I don’t have to dye it at all ever ever ever again, although I have been thinking about going purple which may colour the grey bits or it may not. Either way purple would be a temporary move.
At the beginning of the summer, I wondered if the sun and heat would alter the colour at all, make it yellow or dry it to a frizz, but I seem to have got away with it because neither has happened. Phew!
It is in great condition and I am super happy about that even when it is at it’s most floppy and unco-operative, bearing in mind that in my world of hair styling, unruly hair means it won’t tuck beind my ear and stay out of my eyes.
Did you see that Kate Middleton has a few greys (she may have had them covered by royal appointment by now of course)? All kinds of people getting their knickers in a knot over that. Isn’t it funny how people are criticised for their ‘natural’ look. No-one gets all hot under the collar if we don’t wear make-up, so why should hair be any different? I don’t know if more people are letting their hair go natural or whether I am just more aware of it because I took the decision to stop dyeing mine.
I recently started using shampoo especially for grey hair which is not easy to get hold of! I just wanted to use a regular drugstore brand shampoo formulated for grey instead of the $16 a bottle fancy stuff. I found Pantene Silver Expressions and bought the shampoo and conditioner which I wasn’t sure was doing anything apart from leaving blue blobs wherever I washed my hair! Both products are blue, but they don’t color anything blue. However when I look back at photos from a few months ago my hair did seem to have a slight yellow touch to it which it doesn’t now, so maybe it is the shampoo or maybe just how it ends up naturally as the grey develops and settles.
I also use a hair oil (Suave Moroccan Hair oil is the one I use) every time I wash my hair. I just dry my hair to damp, then squirt 4 or 5 blobs of oil onto my hands and work it into my hair. It never feels oily as it soaks right in. In fact hair oil is something I want to make myself, so when I get a good recipe I will be sure to share.
As for styling, I just wash, tuck it behind my ears and go! I know, I am a hair stylist’s nightmare!!
Oh, the sunnies are from Zero UV in case you where wondering. They have lots of super fun styles!
