Hair dying time is once again upon us...well me.

Over the weekend I wrote about buying hair dye, because they had it at the store that I stopped in to buy band-aids.

I have walked passed the box of hair dye probably a hundred times since buying it and just haven't felt like doing it, but that changed this morning. I decided it was time to put the dye to use, and get my hair dyed today. I have a couple meetings tomorrow, so it seemed like a good enough push to get my hair done.

It needs to be cut or at least trimmed too, but that's probably not going to happen today.

Oh well one step at a time.

I know I said this last time. But I'll get a picture posted after it's dyed and washed and dryed.

Here goes nothing.

I shall return shortly with brighter red hair.

Why are girls so obsessed with trying different hair colors? And it never stops with age.

I don't know about you, but once the anxiety has passed over whether the color is going to be acceptable or not, I feel an uplift in my spirits.

I hope to see the picture soon. I gave up doing my hair as the grey pops right back through in a week

I went red in my 40s. Now, I'm to my natural color, but I slice in color/bleach to give it some body, because I have rather thin and fine hair. I also keep it short, as I have done most of my life.

The snarky me wants to respond with: For the same reason that boys are so obsessed with trying different girls, which also never stops with age.

And the different hair colors? Quite honestly, because it's fun. We do it because we like to. Men, generally, will dye their hair (for those who do) because they (revert back to the snarky me) are trying to cover up the fact they are aging and trying to get the younger women. LOL

The snarky me responds as if women do not dye their hair to appear younger and hide those despised gray hairs.

I don't do it to cover up the grey. I slice color in among the grey... but I was a natural dark ash blonde, so doing so blends more. And the hair I have is lifeless without a bit of "damage" of the color/bleach process.

JohnRoberts Your snark pales...

I do not despise nor hide my grey, any more than I despise or hide my wrinkles, or my scars, or my stretch marks or my cellulite or ... or... or... . I did not have grey when I first colored my hair at 18, and had it been vogue to do so back in 1970s, as it is today, I might have gone blue or hot pink or light lime green. Unfortunately, the military frowned upon that.

Mine gets dyed the same color every six to eight weeks, it's been the same for over a year.

I'm going to second this motion. Plus dying my hair is cheaper than changing men. Or having a man to begin with. Lol

I tried to find that beautiful blue grey color that some women get to their hair when I first started going grey, but none of the shops around me knew how to do it. But if I had wanted yellow or green or mixture of that they could do that. I just did not like the way it looked when it would first start showing through the colored hair. Now just wear it long and natural which is mostly a grey with my natural brunette hanging in there in a few spots.But have been known to buy the colored hair sprays just to mix it up sometimes lol

I found a couple of Grey's this time around. Way too soon in my book for me start showing grey. But maybe that's a sign of life well lived?
