I have grey hair. Well, some of it. It’s been at that awkward ‘salt and pepper’ stage for years. I only know this because I decided to grow out my colour a while ago in the vague hope that it would suit me to be grey. To my dismay, it was just a mish-mash of grey and brown in very uneven patches and it looked ridiculous so I went back to dying it.
I dye it myself and I use two colours. A pinky purple sort of colour for the fringe and black for the rest of it. I do it myself because it needs doing quite frequently, due to the stupid grey, and it would cost a fortune at the hairdressers. I’m not too bad at doing it now, I usually do it in two stages and it looks ok.
However, I HATE doing it (that was the main reason for growing it out last year) and it is always a messy business, even though I try very hard not to let it splash…..
So, I was thrilled to discover that the product I use now comes as a ‘non drip foam’. It is advertised as very easy to use and sounded like the answer for me.
Non drip??? Non drip my arse!!! It’s EVERYWHERE!!! I have a permanently dyed black fingernail (despite wearing the gloves!), black ears and shoulders, one black boob and a big black blob on one foot. I have tried to wipe every spot I found in the bathroom but I am dreading going back up there in half an hour. I’m bound to have missed a bit.
And I still have the pink to do…..
My bathroom will look like a Jackson Pollock painting by the time I’ve finished!!!
