Haircare | My Grey Hair

If you follow me on twitter or instagram then you know that I am finally a fully grey haired women! After a few months of going to the hairdressers and building up the silver/grey in my hair, I was able to get the grey/granny haired look I desired. I first spoke about going grey when I had my first session at the hairdressers (See how I got on here).

When I walked into the hairdressers last Saturday I was told about a new range of grey toners which had been released called ‘Gothic Grey’ and how my hairdresser had been so excited to try it out on me. After seeing the colours I couldn’t contain my excitement either and mission get granny grey hair begun right away.

To achieve the look, I had a full head of highlights run through my hair in a peroxide colour. After the dye was washed out, my hair was covered with two of the colours from the ‘Gothic Grey’ collection (Silver and Grey). The colour was left on for 20 minutes and then washed off to reveal a beautiful grey colour. I was so excited when I saw the results! Finally after 3 months I had the colour I wanted to achieve and had waited patiently for.

3 months doesn’t seem like a lot of time for some people when it comes to hair but considering my hair is naturally light and I have been dying it platinum blonde for years, I was positive that it would go dark grey right away – I was obviously wrong. The best advice I would give to someone wanting to go grey is be patient and take your hairdressers advice in terms of how long to wait between dye sessions and the best way to achieve the colour that won’t damage your hair!

The best thing about going to the hairdressers (and taking their advice to build it up in stages and not just put peroxide or bleach straight on my hair with some toner) means that my hair is still really healthy. Not only that but it has grown at least two inches since I started the process back in February.

I am absolutely in love with my hair being this colour and I think I will keep it until long after the ‘trend’ is over.

What do you think of the current Grey Grannie Hair trend?

    Looking good! I’m hopefully going to dye my hair a browny ashy colour this Thursday. Can’t wait.
