My Dream Has Come True

Has it happened? Has my dream come true? I don’t have to color my hair every 8 weeks to keep my gray concealed? I can actually embrace my gray hair for what it is, gray hair?

Well, my group of work friends who keep me on schedule for my hair color have told me no. The fact that gray, silver and white hair is a current trend with Kelly Osbourne, Lady Gaga, Kate Moss and others, does not entitle me to grow out my natural hair color and flaunt my gray. So, according to them, I have to be celebrity status, younger or older to pull it off.  I guess I fall in the middle where it’s just not fashionable. Do you think that is the case? The beauty about hair color is that it can be changed at any point and time.

Is anyone out there tempted to go with a gray accent like Stacy London or do an all over gray like Kelis?

For now I will not attempt to disrupt my hair color schedule because the color that I use (Ion Color Brilliance Permanent Crème 4IR) is really a good color for me, but in the meantime I will dream of the day when my gray hair will be an asset and not a curse.

    My saintly wife likes the gray at my temples. She doesn’t want me to color it. Not yet, anyway! Do men use Ion Color Brilliance?

    Grey hair wouldn’t be so bad if the texture wasn’t so different from the rest of my hair!

    I color my hair or should I say just cover the gray hair. I tried not coloring and since I have bright red hair you can see EVERY gray hair and I have been called candy cane and barber poll (in a loving way, yeah right) from my friends at work. I really hate the gray hair that is zigzag gray hair that sticks straight up when the rest of my hair is smooth.

    My issue is that I like the color I use (ion deepest brown) and the gray I have, I am about 30% gray, comes in looking really silver; even my 15 year old even thinks it looks kind of cool. But, I don’t like the color of my natural dishwater blond hair. Isn’t there a way to keep coloring the colored hair and let the silver go?

    I decided about five years ago, at age 51, to see what was under the chestnut brown dye I had used on my hair for years. So I began by frosting in the chestnut brown as gradually let more of the gray come in, which took about two years. Now I LOVE my streaky silver and pewter hair, and I get way more compliments on my hair now than I ever have. I use Sally’s Generic version of Shimmer Lights shampoo once a week to keep it from going brassy or dull. I say, go for it.

    I opted to go platinum blonde. I bleach out then use Wella Color Charm White Lady toner. In between, I spruce up with Manic Panic Virgin Snow. I think it gives me more of a glitzy look than the mostly white with regular hair color I had been wearing. Since nature wanted me white, I accommodated her.

    I don’t like the “sproigy” texture of my gray/white hair. And the red tint in my hair doesn’t mix well with gray, or white, either. Maybe in a couple of years I’ll try letting it go, when it’s all gray I’ll instead of a tossed salad of colors.

    Or maybe I won’t be ready to look my age yet by then, either. Meanwhile, I’m happy there’s Sally’s to sell the color!

    Personally i love grey hair! The fact that its associated with aging gives it such a bad wrap that it doesn’t deserve. It’s just as beautiful as any other colour hair, as long as you can rock it. ;3

    I’m 26 and I’ve decide to rock my grays like no one’s business. I have a significant amount of them pretty much in my bangs and a bit on the top/forward part of my hair. I love to dye my hair from it’s natural deep chocolate to sizzling copper (THANK YOU L’Oreal HiColor!!) but I’m thinking of changing my gray area to a stripe Stacey London.Rogue style. Any advice on that in an upcomming post would be great!

    Hi! I’ve been reading your weblog for a long time now and finally got the courage to go ahead and give you a shout out from New Caney Texas! Just wanted to mention keep up the great work!
    I’m really loving the theme/design of your blog. Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility problems?

    A handful of my blog visitors have complained about my website not working
    correctly in Explorer but looks great in Firefox.
    Do you have any ideas to help fix this issue?
    I’m curious to find out what blog system you are using? I’m having some small
    security issues with my latest site and I would like
    to find something more risk-free. Do you have any recommendations?

    Hmm it appears like your site ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I
    guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m
    thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog writer but
    I’m still new to everything. Do you have any tips for first-time blog writers? I’d definitely appreciate it.

    Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this site. It’s simple,
    yet effective. A lot of times it’s difficult to get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appeal. I must say that you’ve done a amazing job with this.
    Additionally, the blog loads very fast for me on Firefox.
    Exceptional Blog!
    Do you mind if I quote a couple of your articles as long as I provide
    credit and sources back to your webpage? My blog site
    is in the exact same area of interest as yours and my users would certainly benefit from a lot of the information you present here.
    Please let me know if this alright with you. Thanks a lot!

    Hi there would you mind letting me know which hosting company you’re using? I’ve loaded your blog in 3 different
    web browsers and I must say this blog loads a
    lot faster then most. Can you recommend a good hosting provider at a honest price?
    Thanks, I appreciate it!
    Very good site you have here but I was curious about if you knew of any community forums
    that cover the same topics discussed in this article?
    I’d really like to be a part of community where I can get comments from other knowledgeable people that share the same interest. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Appreciate it!
    Hello! This is my first comment here so I just wanted to give a quick shout out and say I truly enjoy reading through your blog posts. Can you recommend any other blogs/websites/forums that cover the same topics? Many thanks!
    Do you have a spam issue on this website; I also am a blogger, and I was wanting to know your situation; many of us have created some nice methods and we are looking to exchange strategies with others, why not shoot me an e-mail if interested.
    Please let me know if you’re looking for a article writer for your blog.
    You have some really good posts and I feel I would be a good asset.

    If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d absolutely love to write some articles for your blog in exchange for a link back to mine. Please send me an e-mail if interested. Thank you!
    Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and everything. However just imagine if you added some great photos or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and clips, this website could certainly be one of the most beneficial in its field. Excellent blog!
    Interesting blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere? A theme like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my blog stand out. Please let me know where you got your theme. Cheers
    Hi there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a hard time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and
    Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique. P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
    Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your content seem to be running off the screen in Internet explorer. I’m not sure if this
    is a formatting issue or something to do with internet
    browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know. The design and style look great though! Hope you get the issue resolved soon. Many thanks
    With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement? My site has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it appears a
    lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my authorization.
    Do you know any ways to help prevent content from being ripped off?
    I’d genuinely appreciate it.
    Have you ever considered publishing an e-book or guest authoring on other sites? I have a blog centered on the same ideas you discuss and would really like to have you share some stories/information. I know my viewers would enjoy your work. If you are even remotely interested, feel free to send me an e mail.
    Howdy! Someone in my Myspace group shared this website with us so I came to take a look. I’m definitely loving the information.
    I’m book-marking and will be tweeting this to my followers! Superb blog and outstanding style and design.
    Excellent blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers? I’m hoping to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely overwhelmed .
    . Any ideas? Appreciate it!
    My programmer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.

    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on a number of websites for about a
    year and am worried about switching to another platform.
    I have heard fantastic things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can transfer
    all my wordpress content into it? Any kind of help
    would be greatly appreciated!
    Does your blog have a contact page? I’m having problems locating it but, I’d like to shoot you an e-mail.
    I’ve got some suggestions for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great blog and I look forward to seeing it expand over time.
    It’s a pity you don’t have a donate button! I’d definitely donate to this outstanding blog!
    I guess for now i’ll settle for book-marking and adding your RSS feed to my Google account. I look forward to new updates and will talk about this website with my Facebook group. Talk soon!
    Greetings from Carolina! I’m bored to death at work so I
    decided to check out your blog on my iphone during lunch
    break. I love the info you present here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home. I’m
    amazed at how quick your blog loaded on my mobile .
    . I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyhow, awesome blog!
    Hey! I know this is kinda off topic nevertheless I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a blog post or vice-versa? My website goes over a lot of the same subjects as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each other. If you happen to be interested feel free to shoot me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you! Wonderful blog by the way!
    Right now it seems like WordPress is the best blogging platform available right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using on your blog?

    Great post however I was wanting to know if you could write a
    litte more on this topic? I’d be very grateful if you could elaborate a little bit further. Thanks!
    Hi there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could find a captcha plugin for my comment form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having difficulty finding one? Thanks a lot!
    When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four e-mails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service? Many thanks!
    Greetings! This is my first visit to your blog! We are a collection of volunteers and starting a new initiative in a community in the same niche. Your blog provided us beneficial information to work on. You have done a wonderful job!
    Hello there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site? I’m
    getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform.

    I would be fantastic if you could point me in the
    direction of a good platform.
    Hi! This post couldn’t be written any better! Reading this post reminds me of my old room mate! He always kept chatting about this. I will forward this article to him. Fairly certain he will have a good read. Many thanks for sharing!
    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You clearly know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your site when you could be giving us something informative to read?
    Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
    The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a forty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!
    I was curious if you ever considered changing the layout of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?
    Hi, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one and i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam remarks? If so how do you stop it, any plugin or anything you can suggest? I get so much lately it’s driving me insane
    so any support is very much appreciated.
    This design is wicked! You obviously know how to keep a reader entertained.
    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog
    (well, almost…HaHa!) Fantastic job. I really enjoyed
    what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
    Too cool!
    I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your website. It’s a very easy on
    the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to come here and visit more often.
    Did you hire out a developer to create your theme?
    Superb work!
    Hi there! I could have sworn I’ve been to this site before but after checking through some of the post I realized it’s new to me.
    Anyways, I’m definitely glad I found it and I’ll be bookmarking and checking back frequently!

    Hello! Would you mind if I share your blog with my twitter
    group? There’s a lot of folks that I think would really appreciate your content. Please let me know. Thanks
    Hello, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your website in Ie, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, fantastic blog!
    Sweet blog! I found it while searching on Yahoo News. Do you have any tips on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I’ve been trying
    for a while but I never seem to get there! Thanks
    Howdy! This is kind of off topic but I need
    some guidance from an established blog. Is it very difficult to set up your own
    blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I’m thinking about setting up my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any points or suggestions? With thanks
    Hi! Quick question that’s completely off topic. Do you know how to make your site
    mobile friendly? My blog looks weird when viewing from my iphone4.
    I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to fix this issue. If you have any recommendations, please share. Many thanks!
    I’m not that much of a internet reader to be honest but your blogs really nice, keep it up! I’ll go ahead and bookmark your site to come back later.
    Many thanks
    I really like your blog.. very nice colors & theme.
    Did you design this website yourself or did you hire someone to do it for you?
    Plz respond as I’m looking to design my own blog and would like to know where u got this from. kudos
    Amazing! This blog looks exactly like my old one! It’s on
    a totally different subject but it has pretty much the same
    layout and design. Wonderful choice of colors!
    Hi just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know a few
    of the images aren’t loading correctly. I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue.
    I’ve tried it in two different browsers and both show the same results.
    Hi there are using WordPress for your blog platform? I’m new
    to the blog world but I’m trying to get started and set up my own. Do you require any html coding knowledge to make your own blog? Any help would be really appreciated!
    Hi this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting
    a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted
    to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would
    be enormously appreciated!
    Hello! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing several weeks of hard work due to no data
    backup. Do you have any methods to prevent
    hackers?
    Hello there! Do you use Twitter? I’d like to follow you if that would be okay. I’m absolutely
    enjoying your blog and look forward to new updates.

    Howdy! Do you know if they make any plugins
    to safeguard against hackers? I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on.
    Any recommendations?
    Hey! Do you know if they make any plugins to help with Search Engine Optimization?
    I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good
    gains. If you know of any please share. Kudos!
    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is needed to get setup? I’m assuming having a
    blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% certain.

    Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Kudos
    Hmm is anyone else having problems with the images on this blog loading?
    I’m trying to determine if its a problem on my end or if it’s the blog.

    Any feed-back would be greatly appreciated.
    I’m not sure why but this site is loading very slow for me. Is anyone else having this problem or is it a issue on my end? I’ll check back later and
    see if the problem still exists.
    Howdy! I’m at work browsing your blog from my new apple iphone! Just wanted to say I love reading through your blog and look forward to all your posts! Keep up the outstanding work!
    Wow that was unusual. I just wrote an incredibly long comment but after I clicked submit my comment didn’t appear.
    Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again. Regardless, just wanted to say fantastic blog!
