Gray hair story

Gray hair, don’t care.

Is it gray hair or grey hair? Does spelling matter? I don’t think it does, but I’ll hedge my bets and type both!

Gray hair transition

COVID-19 has been playing havoc with my hair color. While I’m naturally a dark blonde, I’ve developed a silver streak along the front of my hairline. I really like it! I’ve been stalking this Instagram profile for pictures and ideas. I was also intrigued by this woman’s story that is remarkably like mine.

While my hair color expenses are fairly reasonable, it’s a long day with a 45-minute drive, a two-hour appointment and then another 45 minutes home. I can usually go eight-ten weeks between color and cut.

I think going to a few more appointments to blend in the gray and getting rid of some lighter ends might be the best route. I’m going to consult with a stylist and see what options will work best for me.

While my mom continues to be a blonde (see below) I shall be transitioning to a gray/blonde color. Isn’t she cute?

Apparently, gray hair needs a special shampoo, so I’ve been investigating which ones work well. I found an article that has a good starting point.

I’d love to hear your thoughts on gray hair and why you would or wouldn’t consider it.
