For so many years people would say to me “redheads don’t turn grey” and I believed them. A few weeks back I noticed a grey hair on my head. When I showed a relative of mine they replied “that’s not grey that is white”. What is the difference? Today I looked in the mirror and I found way more grey there than I would like. I know being over 30 I should expect this, but I honestly thought I never would turn grey. I think I was expecting just to get lighter shades of red. I have never dyed my hair before, but I am thinking about it. My concern with dying my hair, is that they will not match the colour exactly as it is now (minus the grey lol) .Maybe I would be better off getting highlights, that way it will all blend and I will have my base colour. I know this is something I am not going to attempt to do at home on my own. I am dreading what a professional will charge me for this.
Funny thing is, I received a gift certificate for Christmas to get my hair done and I still have it in my purse. I was actually cutting my own hair this morning when I noticed all of my new grey. Between school for me, school for the kids, Doctor appointments and dentist visits I find sticking to a schedule hard enough. Now I need to schedule a hair appointment…bleh A funny side note -Before I came to write this post I googled about redheads turning grey. Some very strange myths came up in my search results : ) Maybe I will share them in more depth at a later time. For now, I need to fix my hair problem.
