This is the question of the half century for me.
If my hair were to go completely gray overnight, I would keep it. I have naturally dark hair, and the salt sprinkling in isn’t becoming. I thought I might try to let it grow in a bit this time to see how it looks, but nope! I couldn’t do it. It makes my hair look dull and dirty.
Another reason I thought about letting it go gray is because the last time I did more than a root touch-up, it dried out my hair and left it a static mess. I think I used L’Oréal that time.
This time, I went back to Clairol Age Defy and loved the result. Super soft and shiny and not at all dry.
If my roots ever indicate more salt than pepper, I might let the aging happen naturally. Until then, I will continue to cover the gray with a color as close to my natural dark, warm brown as possible. I’ll never go blonde because I think it would look terrible with my skin tone. I also don’t care for over-done highlights … chunking … streaks. Throwback natural for me!
Do you color your hair?
