Once upon a time, I found a grey hair. It would defy gravity and stick up and wave at me in the mirror, brutally resistant to hairspray, gel or superglue to keep it in check. This stubbornness was a new concept considering every other hair on my head was fine and skull clinging despite all my attempts to create that elusive 'volume'. Why was it that I would spend hours on trying to create a little height, a little air space between my brown fine hair and my scalp and yet I would also spend hours trying to reduce the air space of this one solitary grey hair?
Actually, not grey. White. brilliant white. Of course it is white, given that every other hair on my head is dark brown.
Oh, I look back on those hours of tending to that one white hair fondly. I long for that one white hair. Actually it's still there but now indistinguishable from all the other white hairs.
There comes a time when instead of trying to straighten each hair, tease it into submission or just pluck it out (we've all done it so don't give me that look), I just reach for the bottle. No not that bottle, the other bottle. The one marked permanent, with promises of soft tumbling curls and flicking silkiness just because you change it's colour.
Except those stubborn gravity defying hairs, are still stubborn and gravity defying. Just a slightly different shade of annoying.
Joining in with The Gallery and the theme of Colour at Sticky Fingers.
Looks like you've acheived a nice colour and got rid of those hairs without any colour.ReplyDelete
Love your intepretation of the theme! :)ReplyDelete
Fab take on the theme :-)ReplyDelete
Great idea for the theme, and love your colour! :)ReplyDelete
I alas am rapidly losing hair so no chance to dye it even if I wanted to :)ReplyDelete
I'm sick of the grey hairs too. Even when I get a colour, the little blighters grow back so much quicker than they used to. I'm not quite ready to go natural just yet.ReplyDelete
Great take on the prompt, and I am so with you! I used to pull the blighters out, then this caused more growth and then I hit the bottle! Nice colour by the way!ReplyDelete
I have those sticky-out white hairs that don't want to join the others - I'm still kidding myself and pulling them out. Think I need to find a suitable bottle...ReplyDelete
Colour looks great!
This is a fab take on the prompt! I too have to do this . I have never pulle them out as I was told by a hairdresser it only makes it worse .ReplyDelete
Great colour you have there x
Really nice colour. I started to go grey a couple of years ago and they are slowly but surely taking over. Luckily my fair hair hides them but I imagine I'll soon be making the 'to dye, or not to dye' decision.ReplyDelete
That looks really natural, well done.ReplyDelete
Ha! What a great take on this week's theme.ReplyDelete
I couldn't have written this - not as well of course!
I am a slave to the permanent colour and the times I've missed a patch! the front of my hair is normal still my natural colour - the top a fuzz of greys - left to their own devises forming a halo and eventually an all over take over which will give me a grey afro. Nooooo.
Nice colour - I've gone for a completely fake copper.
What a lovely colour!ReplyDelete
:-) I have some white hairs in my eyebrows - going for the plucking rather than dying route with them xReplyDelete
Hehe, I love this take on the theme - My hair started going grey after I had Z. Only in my fringe though, so now I look like Cruella De Vil. So annoying!ReplyDelete
Wow amazing hair color! This will be my next hair color!ReplyDelete
Yes, I am just at the start of this whole white hair thing - mine few are white too, for max contrast obvs!! Given I'm a redhead and have never dyed my hair in my life, I do wonder how things will pan out in the future, I am petrified of dying it, but at the same time, can't imagine a life without colour!!ReplyDelete
Here you share your best knowledge with us. I highly appreciate your work.ReplyDelete
