You know I always say, do as you please and wear what you want! That rule also applies to hair – you do as you feel you should. Because, only you will know when it’s right to go grey and au naturel. And especially, don’t listen to anyone extolling the virtues of going grey. I even used to put up counter arguments on Alyson Walsh’s esteemed blog That’s Not My Age, for sustaining the dyed hair, but somehow we seemed to have stopped the dye around the same time – and feel the same way – that grey is good. Here’s a post about her grey hair. Actually I love the colour my hair is now.
And am amazed at how yellow my hair used to be!
That’s one crazy hat I don’t have any more. And here’s one I have kept – but note the yellow tinge!
Yes, it was October 2016 when I last put dye on my hair and because I don’t crop it short it still has a slight tinge on the ends.
That’s me, btw, close-up and no filters, aged 72. And exactly why I do YouTube videos for all of you to see a real 70-year-old putting on make-up. One coming tomorrow (27 Feb) and this time I mean it! My channel is the very definition of a slow channel as I’ve not uploaded for a month, but there’s so much to learn on the technical side and I’ve discarded several. And, oh my, I had no idea my voice sounded like that! It is quite shock when you hear your voice as others hear it!
Back to hair 🙂
I think my hair with its white streak is OK and I’d like to reassure those of you teetering on the brink of not dyeing. It’s actually i) quite liberating to not dye, ii) it really is better for your pocket and iii) with a good cut and makeup you do not disappear. What I used to think was, would I look like the ubiquitous permed short hair type? And of course, I don’t. And nor will you!
But you’ll know when! So I want to say – you do as you think best! Because it is the best.
Btw, I do wash my hair with some white hair specific products. The place I get these is from White Hot Hair – they’re good. And note I once wrote about their products and after the post was written White Hot Hair sent me the two products I mentioned. No payment or affiliations though, as my blog is not selling anything (see last post but we’ve got to say if we receive anything, which I think is good and correct). And I’ve just changed my hairdresser and again am using one of their white hair specific products. What they do is get rid of the brassy tones and highlight the white, which is not a dye, apparently 🙂
That’s all for now but thank you for all those lovely comments on the last post – I appreciate all my readers very much 🙂
With love, Penny the Frugalfashionshopper
