Keeping up appearances....or not.

Photo this morning....feeling tired and unfocused.....and my hair (which I am trying to allow to return to it's now gray state.. never seen as I have colored it for many years)...


was looking pretty moth-eaten, flea-bitten etc. Still I didn't want to go to permanent color and face the continuing agony of roots growing out.....could there be something that would help???
I went to a beauty supply shop and asked for help. Several thought I should just do permanent color....but they helped me at least get a better look. (below)



The grays are still there, but blend better and I think I can keep doing this until it is all just gray. [Then I'll decide what to do next...but I want to see where nature has me now!]



There is something about even small improvements perking up our spirits....I like this and feel better! Below is the information of what I used....my color (to take out all that brassiness) is "TRUE STEEL". It is hair color...but it is temporary, not permanent!

Roux Fanci-Full Rinse temporary hair color. Keeps hair color looking its best between color treatments. Evens tones and removes brassiness. Blends away gray. Color is instantaneous and non-damaging. Added styling lotion allows for coloring and styling in one easy step. 15oz container.

Shampoo hair. Rinse well. Towel dry. Using rubber gloves, raise applicator tip of bottle and apply close to hair. Work color through hair with fingers, then comb through to ensure even distribution and saturation of every hair strand. Blowdry and style as desired. When washing face, if soap removes hair color at hairline, dab on a little Roux Fanci-Full Rinse with cotton. For longer lasting hair color, style with Roux Fanci-Full Color Styling Mousse.

I can remember using Roux rinses YEARS ago when I had my hair frosted! The rinse really does make a difference! Your hair is beautiful! I like the lighter color overall! ♥

I like the new look! I've wondered about if it work to have hair lightened and colored to a silver gray and so when it grew out it wouldn't even be noticed. I guess I should ask a stylist if that would that work? My dad has the most beautiful wavy, silver hair and he went gray early! My hair is probably predominantly gray now, but I think my grandkids might have a stroke if they saw me with gray hair!! Still, I am definitely going a lot lighter- going to start out with frosted, then who knows! LOL
