If’ you’re like me, you’ve been waiting to finally get that salon appointment! And the time is now! YAY! I feel so lucky!
But then there’s the choice. Keep the grey or back to the dye job? Decisions, decisions. Have you been trying to figure out what to do with your hair now that we can back to the hair dresser? Are you like me with grey roots and that not so fashionable ombre of what’s left from the last dye job? What have you decided to do?
So I went back and forth with what I wanted.
- I could keep the grey and cut my hair so that the growing out process wasn’t too long. The hairdresser could incorporate the grey into a new color from what was originally there in order to help the grey hair stay.
- I could give up the grey and go back to the original dye job and cut my hair.
- I could dye it all and keep it long.
I was still leaning towards keeping the grey and maybe even cutting it short if need be until I decided I wasn’t quite ready for the grey look. My hair is thinning with age (isn’t menopause fun?) and the grey, even though it looked prettier than I had anticipated, wasn’t the me I feel like I am at this point.
So I kept the length (snipped off the split ends), let her layer it a bit for a fresher look and went a little lighter than normal to incorporate the grey more than cover it up. A good compromise for me all around I think.
How about you?
