Covering the grey

hairdresser
At last I’ve bitten the bullet. It’s bad enough for Xavier having such an old mother so I’ve decided not to go grey gracefully, but rather to join the ranks of women heading off to the hairdressers every six weeks or so. Having only been to a hairdresser less than half a dozen times in my life I will just have to think of all the money saved in the first half of my life rather than begrudge the expenditure now.

Does hair dye make your brain go soft? I jsut wonder about the chemicals leaching through the skin, and maybe that's why I act a bit senile at times. Hmmm. Maybe it's just another birthday coming up this week!
Of course nearly all senior Fijian men and women use black hair dye, especially when getting ready for a choir competition!

I hope not Wendy _ I can't afford a softer brain than I have.

I went every colour under the sun as I started going grey at 21, now I am just boring grey, mostly because i cant be bothered trying to do anything to it and after years and years of dye my hair became a mess, Like this one you look young and eager for something, Venice perhaps!!

You mean you sat in the hairdressers chair sketchbook in hand? Such is your dedication Julie!

I'm due a visit - since my hair is always up I'm trying to persuade myself it really is worth paying somebody to take four inches off and then for me just to put it straight back up again!
