To go grey or not too…


That is the question that I asked myself about 6 months ago.  I’ve been slowly going grey over the past 10-12 years (getting faster as I tipped 40!) and have been dying my hair for that long.  It’s fun, but oh so damn expensive and at the rate my hair grows I end up with the skunk stripe after about 3 weeks,  so I was asking myself if it was worth it or not.  My Mum went salt and pepper in her 40’s and now is a lovely shade of steel grey and it really suits her…but was I ready to admit I was getting older and risk making myself look even older?  Then I thought, well, I’m comfortable being the age I am, certainly wouldn’t want to turn back the clock, so why hide what nature is telling me?  So I made the decision…grey it will be and if i really can’t handle it I can always dye it again!

So here is me about 6 months ago …

Approx March 2010

And now 7 months later …

Taken 2 weekends ago

I have to say I’m pleased with how it is growing out.  It will be interesting to see what it looks like once there is no dye left!
