How I turned to my natural grey hair color without looking careless:
Ok, it was time for me….even though I had great natural hair dye alternatives, like my recipe in this post: follow my roots.
At first, my choice was motivated by my head neurological injury, leading me to…pretty big pain…no need to add the torture (it turns as a torture for my head and scalp nerve) while dying my hair…keeping the wet hair mask for 1 to 2 hours was triggering…my crazy nerve :).
So….I had different options, since I haven’t been to a hairdresser for the last 2 and an half years…
1 ♦ Let my hair grow…and wait until the roots are long enough…then CUT…SHORT…I wasn’t ready for that.
2♥ Using a hair color remover ( I know…its packed with chemicals), but it was once for all. Though, I insist on this: please ask a colorist advise before diving into this option. Personally, I homemade it, buying some products. I first turned ginger…so I had to repeat the process more than once. I had long hair and had to cut to mid length…yes…this is damaging hair. Though I have been very lucky, I met a young woman who was working as a dying expert in a wholesale hairdresser store!!! She gave me the best advises to cover my yellowish, reddish ends…making a nicer transition between my now….very grey hair (almost white on the front)
At first…I needed to get adjusted to it….when I was crossing a blond/silver woman in the mirror, it was such a surprise each time…here I am…what a big move!
And guess what…I love it. I am so glad I won’t have to color my hair….I see my grey roots coming naturally….it blends smoothly with the silver blond I obtained thanks to the color expert I met.No more hair color….ever….
Though I use a lot of vegetal oil on the length to protect my hair.
My favorite are:
–coconut oil.…of course
And as a hair serum, I use very light and non greasy oils:
Who would be considering turning silveriscious, or maybe are you already a beauty grey?
How was your experience, how reacted your family???
