Greying or not? Grey be gone!

The greying I wanted

Greying

I really wonder if this is totally natural greying or not.  If it is, she’s got amazing grey hair!

The follow-up for grey or not

This is a follow-up to my previous post about greying.

What I got

At the time, it seemed like a great idea, about time I let nature take over and just be me.  I’ve been all over the internet looking at beautiful pictures of women with long hair greying and how amazing they look.  I thought as mine grew out, I would just highlight the blonde ends with the greyish color and it would all blend in eventually. I even went platinum to give it a good boost to grow it out.  Did I feel free not coloring it?  No, I felt lazy. Did it empower me?  No, I felt older and the mirror did not show who I was.  I would stand in front of the mirror and talk to myself.  Nothing was helping.

greying roots grey hair

This is at 3 months, I have darker by the ears and white in the forehead area.  Also, mixed on the top part. I know I need to have patience but it’s making me feel really old and tired and not myself.  Funny how certain things you’ve done for so many years can make a difference.  I know, you might think, man, she needs to get in touch with her inner woman and accept who she is.  I have and I do but that inner woman is blonde with nail polish and makeup.  Has been as long as I can remember and I’m not changing it now.  I enjoy it all, it is who I am.

It’s been 4 months and this is where I’m at, had a bit of a talk with hubby. What were his thoughts? Bless his heart, he didn’t care, whatever I wanted but he did think it looked like a rat color also.  The only remark he made was..”you’re a blonde, why change it?”.

greying hair

I have officially decided this is not working for me.  This is the same color it was when I was 16 and started lemon on my hair.  A mouse, not brown and white, not black and white, mouse and white.. After much thinking whether I should wait it out a bit longer or do something…the something won.

Grey be gone, nice try but Jayne’s back and with a vengeance! I feel like myself and ready to take on the world.  Have you tried letting it go?  Did it work for you?  

Grey be gone
