#22: I have grey hair!! I get this from my mother, who has been dying her hair for many, many years. (sorry if I am giving away your secrets, too!) The evidence of my mid life crisis is in my grey hair. They are in the most inconvenient place, right at my hairline in my bangs where I part my hair. I have tried to cover it up many-a-way. First I had highlights for a long time. Then I figured I was frying my hair with the highlights so I gave it a break. It didn’t go so well the first time. It turned a nasty green, like this:
It was more pronounced in real life. That wasn’t all, it turned a nasty copper red after that (again, more pronounced in real life):
That was epic and terrible so I went back to highlights. My grey still showed through!
Bah! There they are in all their glory. No, that is not part of the highlights in my bangs, and, yes, I did really need to get my hair done. It happens. So, I tried to “go dark” again, hoping it wouldn’t turn out so awful as the first time. It did, and worse because it made the grey hair more obvious! I took a picture, showed it to Melissa because she didn’t believe my grey hair story, and then deleted all the evidence. So much that I looked for an hour last night to try and find that picture and came up with nothing.
So, I resort to highlights again. And this time my plan is foolproof. I have a blonde streak in the bangs that hides most of they grey! It works, except if you look close you can still see some of those wretched grey hairs trying to show their ugly heads:
