Adventures in Color
The most frustrating part is just when I have the stylist cutting my hair just right she leaves me. My hair cut isn't particularly fancy, all I want is a graduated bob. A bit of a variation on Louise Brooks' classic hairstyle. The only challenge is learningto belive me when I say I want to cut off 2 inches. My hair grows very fast and I'm not afraid to go very short. Oh and then there is the gray.
I always had a few gray hairs, but when I was pregnant with Jake they came in with a vengeance. As you can see from my rots I am at least 60 % gray (all right 80%). When my hair grows out I get what I call my skunk stripe.
I picked a color that was fairly close to what I wanted that was geared towards coloring gray hair. The process was a bit messy, but at one sixth the cost- I can deal with it.
I think the end result is pretty good. The pictures really don't do it justice, the coverage is much better. I think I have bought myself some time before I next have to go in and I don't think I be paying for a stylist to color my hair.
