The Grey Ghost

As some of you know, I am growing out my gray hair. Now that it is growing out, it isn’t as gray as my stylist and i had originally thought it would be, and the growing out has not been as traumatic for me as I thought it would be. That being said, every time I see someone with a great new do and new color (I’m looking at you, Linda Vallance!), then I get a little itchy to go buy a box of color and go crazy.

That being said, I have gone this far now, I cannot turn back. I feel certain that I will end up dying it again later, because let’s be honest, all it takes is one moment of weakness to fall right back into the vicious cycle. And if there is one thing I am, it is weak-minded.

So, here is your grey ghost update:

Gray I

Gray II

There you have it. It ain’t pretty, but it isn’t as bad as I thought it would be. I still have my color on the lower half of the strands, and I’m not ready to go short yet, and cut off all the color. But I do like that I said I was going to do it and I stuck with it. So far.

    My strategy is that once I’m ready to go grey, I’m going blonde first. I think the transition will be easier and it will be less noticeable and dramatic than to go grey on dark brown. That’s what my sister-in-law did and it looks great on her. Of course, she was nearly totally grey by the time she was 35.

    Interesting about the blonde. That would have been fun! Dawn, is yours naturally dark brown?

    Nikki, it’s going! I don’t know how well. 🙂

    I would also like to say that for the record, the wallpaper in my bathroom was NOT chosen by me and Todd. It is from the old folks. I still haven’t gotten around to updating the baths at all upstairs.

  6. […] mean, we’re all just a work in progress, right?) and dyeing my hair, because we all remember how shitty it looked when I tried to age naturally, right? I want to be healthy for my kids. I want to set a good example. I want my husband to think […]
