I’m Gonna Wash that Gray Right Out of My Hair

You know you’re a child of the 80’s when you read the title of this blog post and hear this song:

Oh the 80’s. Did we just sing about everything back then? What a magical time to be alive.

I decided a few months ago that I would grow out my Gray Hair.

I know gray hair is COVID-chic but I didn’t grow mine out because of COVID, I haven’t dyed my hair in a salon in over a year, and for many many years before that. But seriously, it was time. I’m a year away from 40 and I’ve had gray hairs accumulating since I turned 30.

It was a slow burn, just a few grays here and there. Then, after baby #2 and working for one of the biggest companies on the planet, I noticed that the production of gray hairs was pushed into overdrive.

Gray hair, don't care
Going gray
What is wrong with me?
What is happening to my hair?

When I first moved back to Connecticut I went to a salon to get my nails done. I get the urge every few years. And as I was talking to the woman doing my nails she told me that she was the owner. She eyeballed my hair and said that she hadn’t had much practice doing reds.

This was the color I was using at the time.

I don’t know how she asked it, but she offered to dye my hair for free. She needed the practice and I needed the dye.

Getting salon dyed
I don’t know what’s wrong with me.

The last time I got my hair dyed at a salon before that was in New Jersey. I got a cut, color, and blow out. It took two women over an hour to dry my hair. The results were stunning. I legit cried when I saw myself in the mirror.

Got my hair did
My weepy eyes.

So, here I am again, back on the dye train. I am not ready to rock the gray hair. Even though it did look pretty cool sometimes, overall I just wasn’t feeling happy with it. I was starting to feel old and tired.

Madison Reed gray hair cover up

This time around I used Madison Reed, which is best hair color I’ve ever used. It creates amazing highlights and lowlights. Just joking, I don’t know what lowlights are. But it does make some really nice highlights.

This is my, ‘I look totally normal’ face.

I cannot tell you how good I feel today, completely refreshed and less haggard. Not to be confused with Hagrid because apparently J.K. Rowling is a real POS these days. Can we reclaim Harry Potter somehow?
