The Great Gray Experiment is...




...over!

Sorry for those who were pulling for me to keep on growing out the gray, but there is time for that when I'm a little older and the silver threads are a little more prevalent. Right now I'm just ending up with a washed out look that I couldn't stand for One. More. Second!

I'm hoping that the dye doesn't cause me any problems with irritation, but if it does, I'll look into either milder solutions through my salon (where I'm having this done) or will have it done with foil wraps next time.

New picture coming soon....Peace - D

gray is beautiful when what's in the mirror is the same person you see smiling back.

I have two brothers and two sisters. All have gone gray and in the case of the brothers very much thin on top.

ha ha ha ha ha See the color of my hair in the avatar...it is still the same. Ha ha ha on them. But my beard is a very worldly shade of gray ;-}

Good luck with the new color! I'm sure it will look great! I feel washed out these days too. I think I have to take the color plunge soon. Looking forward to your new picture :)

My sister did the same thing ... grew it out and when it wasnt like mine, she went back to coloring it .. I think that unless you have VERY dark hair to begin with it doesnt go silver at all.. it just gets this sort of dull grey ...

However .. its not your hair people notice first .. its that smile that extends to your eyes!

I wanted to grow my hair out gray and natural.. but it was horrible too. I had blonde hair growing up that darkened by the time I was in my early 20s..

I think Daryl is right.. I know someone who had black hair and it turned gray so nicely.. like a charcoal gray with white highlights.. beautiful.

I think you are making a good choice in dying it.. (me too-it just did not work for me either)

Hey, I say do what you gotta do. Plus? I think if you go gray, even that should be professionally done. Good luck and can't wait to see the result, hon!

Deb said...

I am on the same page with you with the whole gray hair business. It is expensive to keep coloring it BUT I look very washed out when I let the gray hair start to take over. So for now I will keep coloring - and I agree with the other comments - it is your smile that people see when they look at you! So...Keep on Smiling!

BE who you want to be, colour and all. Screw the chemicals! It'll be gorgeous.

Hilary said...

Whatever it will be, the smiling face it surrounds is what counts. No doubt it'll be marvelous.

Either or. Both are good. The point is to feel happy with yourself.

Jo said...

Good for you!

You're too pretty for grey hair!

When I was resisting the gray I went to my hairdresser and he suggested 'low lights'explaining that ,no, it was'nt anything to do with electricity but was a way of changing my hair colour without going to extremes. He took a lot of small sections and made them, one colour, light brown, then other small sections and made them dark beige and finally did blonde highlight around my face. Took forever aand they did look good and as my hair was Judy Dench short at the time, took ages to grow out and still looked natural. Cost an arm and a leg and eventually, after a couple of years I got bored and broke. Would look good on you.

I'm sure that it will look great either way. Whatever makes you feel good. It's all about attitude.
