Default Re: Decicing to go gray

I've been grey since I was in my late-20's. Always dyed it, every color (I mean every!) except black. In my 50's the grey turned white and it just does not hold home dye at all. So I'm transitioning by getting highlights or lowlights along the way. Yes, they are expensive and that's a problem for me. So I don't have the color done more than 2 or 3 times per year. Now it's a nice, soft light-blonde with white and some grey in it.

Decided to just go natural a couple years ago when my hairdresser left because I wouldn't trust anyone else. It's about 1/3 Gray right now. The rest a not great brown. I always think 80 year olds with colored hair look ridiculous.

Maybe you can have a stylist work in a warm brown with your gray?

There seems to be a trend around where I live that people are dying there hair an ash color and I don't mean ash blonde..... it's just ash. To each there own but we all get there at some point..... why rush the process?
