What do I know? Well, it’s official. I’ve seen the light. I’ve accepted the inevitable, the truth that’s been increasingly apparent from all those behind me. If only I’d had eyes in the back of my head. I would’ve seen what I can no longer hide.
I’d been kidding myself. It wasn’t that bad. But in the bright light of day, and the revealing honesty of a mirror, it was staring me in the face:
I’m going grey! And it’s happening fast(!) as my post-baby hair shed is growing back.
The thing is, it’s really not too obvious from the front. But from the back…………………..think skunk.
I love my natural hair colour. I get compliments about it, even from hairdressers who play with hair dyes for a living. Or are they paid to flatter?! Hmmmm…….
I did say when I was in my early 20s that I’d dye it if I went prematurely grey. Bah! What’s premature? Grey is grey!
This week my eyes have been opened. I’ve had a lightbulb moment. If I don’t start colour matching before I go more grey, I’m going to lose the chance to “fake it natural”.
So I’m on a mission; to find my natural colour…….packaged in a bottle.
Can you help a real novice? Do you dye your hair? What do you know about the best, non-harsh hair dyes on the market? Are highlights better than a full colour wash?
