Grey Hair

I have been blonde now for about 15 years.  I've loved it.  I think I looked so much better than my mousy brown that always caused me problems.  We didn't have a great relationship.  Having my hair dyed seemed to leave it more manageable.  It behaved itself more.

Then, a few months ago I found I was getting thoroughly bored at the hairdressers.  It's franchised in a hotel that has that 'oh so modern' dreary brown decor and I find the whole atmosphere depressing. 

I decided there were too many women of my age with dyed blonde hair.

I no longer liked the thought of all those chemicals going on my head.

I mentioned going grey to my hairdresser.  You'd have thought I'd suggested having my face tattooed.  She was dead against it, listing all the problems, how it would age me.

I told her looking younger wasn't one of my aims.  I might have been speaking in an alien language, the incomprehension on her face.

So, I have decided to grow the blonde out.  I realise it's going to look like s*** for some time, it's going to be painful and I am open to the possibility I might run screaming back to my hairdresser begging for help but for now, three months in, this is how far I've got:-


I have a feeling hats and scarves are going to feature largely in my wardrobe for the next year or so.

Blessings,
Andi xx

    1. It isn't disturbing me too much yet but then, I've never really been a 'hair' person. Ribbons seem to be distracting the eye quite well so far. xx

  2. I did the same thing a few years ago. I was coloring my hair brown and finally let the grey grow out, however I got a very short hair cut almost like a man's flat top however in 6 weeks my hair had grown out to a nice short length. People even said they liked my shaved hair cut LOL
    You will look wonderful with your grey hair, just get a cute cut

    1. Having the blonde cut off would be the sensible thing to do but the rebel in me says no. I like my shoulder=length hair. I haven't wobbled yet but it's still in the 'can be hidden' stage. xx

I'd be really pleased to hear from you.
