Ok, this is quite embarassing, but I have a feeling a lot of younger women are experiencing this. If there's anyone who can help me, I know it's my blogger babes.
Hi! My name is Melissa, I am 25 years old and I have grey hair. Yup, lovely grey hair. Not only is my hair turning grey (about 30 strands) but I GROW new grey hairs. So I put on a headband or twist my bangs back and there's this tiny little inch to two inch long friggin pieces of terror sticking out of my scalp. (Can you tell I am emotional about this? LoL)
I have had this for about a year now and have just continued to do what I did prior to the grey hair- use a demi-permenant dye in my natural hair color (brownish-red). I love doing this and the color, but I don't know if this is the best method due to the fact that those little buggers continue to grow.
Here's where I need your help. What do I do?
A: Continue to use the demi-permanent dye and pluck those little suckers like I do now (don't even spout that old don't pluck them they will grow back rule- it's a myth lol)
B: Get light highlights in hopes that the contrast between my hair and highlight will help disguise the grey
C: Permanently dye my hair a lighter color all over
I believe I am leaning towards highlights, but at the same time I am quite nervous about the up-keep costs. Employment isn't necessarily a give in for a teacher in my area and I still have no job prospects for September.
I would love to get your advice or anything you may be doing to handle the same problem.
Here's a pic of my scalp area..you can only see one or two greys, but they are there I promise!
