This is the downside of colouring your hair. For whatever reason you are doing it, whether to cover up the grey or just to ring the changes with a new image every so often, you're going to get the dreaded roots growing through. Wouldn't it be brill if you could get your hair to how you like it, and apply a spray which would stop the growing process untill you are ready to start it again. If someone ever invents such a thing, 50% of hairdressers would go out of business.
How women can sit around in salons week in week out, I'll never know. I find nothing pleasureable about someone fiddling with my head, while trying to divert my eyes away from the mirror knowing that my face is under scrutiny from everyone in the place. I just want in and out, thank you very much. Well now I don't have to go through that torture any more, yipeeeeee. As you know I posted about my first attempt at cutting my hair. I did the whole caboodle, top, fringe, sides, and back, and I was quite pleased with the result. So this is going to be the way for me from now on.
Now it's time to get rid of those dark roots again. I normally spend around £3 to £4 on a colour, buying it from the discount stores, and usually go for well know names. Anyway, the purpose of this post is to illustrate just how cheap you can go with your hair care regime, it needn't cost a fortune.
First of all I trimmed my barnet all over, again with two mirrors, back and front. Cost, nothing. My box of Extra Light Natural Blonde colour for £1, is from erm....Poundland. It is a make I am not familiar with but I will give it a go. I've checked their web site and it looks legitimate. So, how to get the cost down even further? This is not my idea, I read it somewhere. First find a plastic pot, an old houmous tub will do, plus a paintbrush. You could use a small piece of sponge or even your fingers to apply the mix if you haven't got a paint brush.
I think the experiment was successful. I can't see any reason why using the second half of the product should not give the same results. Cost of new hairdo? 50p, whooopeee, plus the cost of boiling a pan and a kettle of water. I wash my hair in the kitchen, not in the bathroom, only flick the hot water switch if I am having a bath. Have a nice Saturday. Toodle pip.
