I’ve been quite smug for a little while about my hair. I had grown out all of the ends that I used to colour and was swishing around thinking I was all fabulous for having “virgin” hair. On Friday I found a grey hair in there. A proper one. One of those ones that’s really wiry and properly devoid of any pigment.
I mean I REALLY flipped. I was convinced it was the end of life as I knew it and that I was destined to live the rest of my short life as a spinster that would be decrepit and brutally aged.
On my way home yesterday I picked up a semi permanent hair colour to sort myself out. The reason I went for a semi to cover grey hair is because Andrew Collinge had recommended it at his event a couple of weeks back. He says it’s the best thing for greys as the semi stains the hair over time meaning you get a more even coverage as you put on your regular applications.
The other great thing about a semi is that it’s kinder to your hair and actually improves the condition of it. A semi doesn’t open the cuticle of the hair like a permanent dye so it can help lock in all that lovely natural shine.
I hope you enjoy my video record of the colouring process. The lighting was horrific so I’m not sure if you can tell just how nicely the colour came out in the end. I went for the Garnier Movida colourant in 23, Chestnut Brown. It cost me £2.88 at my local Superdrug.
