Growing Out Grey, the Terror and the Glory
“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken” - Oscar Wilde
So you've been thinking about it, eh? Getting a little tired of fending off invading armies of grey roots, knowing they're reloading as fast as you can mow them down? It would be nice to know what it's all going to look like if you do let them have their way. If your hair is going to be mousy enough to make you look like an actual mouse, maybe it's not time yet. But on the other hand, you might be putting the final touches on the confident, gracefully radiant, mature woman you know you are. For those contemplating the big leap, I've got your back; no need to approach a decision of such magnitude alone and unarmed. Here's everything you'll need, and then some.
Let's have a look at the opportunities for either side:
The up-side of colouring your hair:
You can have whatever colour you want (more or less).
In most cases, you will likely look younger (more about that in a while).
The colour is often better for skin tone.
There's usually more volume, shine and smoothness (assuming the salon colour is of excellent quality and your stylist knows what they're doing).
You get to take part in keeping your hairstylist fed and clothed.
