The hair saga.

So a few months ago I began my journey to stop dying my hair and grow grey naturally. This did not however go as easily as I expected. I had been using a red dye and before that dark dyes to cover the grey. Now because I can not afford the ridiculous hairdressing prices, this was a journey I needed to do on my own. 
I began by stripping my hair. This is supposed to take out all hair dyes. It did not. It just turned my hair into a multi coloured mess. Then I thought well I will go light. (My thinking was that the grey would not show as much with lighter hair ) So I bleached my hair and it went blonde but the ends remained orange.
Next I decided to have my hair cut a lot shorter to remove the orange. So I did.

Then I decided the blonde was too blonde so I tried grey dyes to make it more natural, I tried a couple of different ones and it turned blue, then purplish (yes trendy but not me ) I then let my hair rest over Christmas. 

Sadly my hair is only partly grey naturally. So of course (yes you guessed it ) I had not planned for this but of course, dark roots. 

So what was the next plan. I decided to go dark ash blonde as a compromise. I did this yesterday and I am finally happy with the colour. it is not too dark and blends nicely over the roots, and its not the awful straw blonde I hated. (see profile picture )   Here is the new look colour instead.

  4. Hello dear June,
    Happy I found you here.
    What a big effort to get your natural color again- it always takes a lot of time when having been colored, -but you ended up, looking so lovely, and no one would think, it is not your own color, - which it also finally will become :-)
    Big hugs from me- xx

  5. You look great! My grey's are coming in too. I'm just letting them be! They are mixing with my brown hair! LOL! Big Hugs!
