Feeling grey….

Have you ever noticed that when you are on holiday the light is different and it shows up the wrinkles and grey hair more – I have this feeling in triplicate at the moment here in France. My grey hair is really showing through now and I feel sooooo ugly! I am finding I am avoiding my reflection as I look so bad – I kid you not! Rationally I know it is ridiculous but this is the reality of letting the grey grow out – it is really hard.

My lovely friend, Vicki (who we are on holiday with), also a hairdresser, said that most people go through this horrible stage when they are changing their hair and it will get better – I hope she is right because I am desperate to reach for that bottle of dye right now!

My grey hair is really coarse and frizzy and it seems as though I have got a bird’s nest on my head. Vicki says I need to use special leave in conditioner and also suggests using Head and Shoulders to strip the dye out quicker – I will do this when I get back home if I haven’t succumbed!

Sorry to all of you out there who are facing proper real life problems – I apologise for being so moany about a minor problem – off to get a grip of myself now!

We live in Plymouth in Devon and this Christmas 2017-8 our family has been watching Blue Planet II endlessly! Our New Year's resolution for 2018 is to take better care of our environment and to live more sustainably. We are using a blog to remember our journey and maybe share with others what we have learnt along the way.
