To Dye or Not To Dye

That is the question!

This one is more for the ladies…No Jeep stuff here! 🙂

Since we have simplified our lives…I have attempted to do the same with my “beauty routines”. I have been letting my gray hair show for some times now.

In the past couple of months, I have done the following:

  • I have experimented with natural hair care (coffee/tea color the hair, apple cider vinegar rinse and baking soda to shampoo the scalp/hair). I am no longer experimenting. I like my shampoo and conditioner.
  • I have gone without makeup (other than lip balm/gloss and sunscreen/moisturizer).  This is the norm for right now. It’s easy!
  • I have gone without cutting my hair (for longer than normal for me).  I prefer it  short but hubby prefers it long. I have an itch for a hair cut!
  • I have gone without coloring or hi-lighting/low-lighting my hair. I have a LOT of gray. I think the (initial) change in lifestyle and the stress associated with the change have exacerbated the gray.

Here is my dilemma:

Should I color the gray out or should I keep my gray?

I believe I will keep my gray. I wish I have one of those beautiful silver/white hair now! The in-between stage bites!

Now, I just need a short sassy hair cut! 😉

Note from Jonathan: Dasy forgot to mention that some of her ideas for natural hair care came from our friends over at Technomadia…  credit where credit is due. 😉
