For a long time, I didn’t want to admit I had grey hair.
But recently I’ve decided to ‘own’ it, instead of covering it up with another colour! I asked my hairdresser how I might make my streak more obvious, and she recommended any of the products designed to work on pre-lightened or blonde hair.
Well, if grey hair isn’t pre-lightened then I don’t know what is!
I had a look in Superdrug and this was the one that seemed the best option. Non-permanent, and you can get multiple applications out of one tube. Perfect.
So here’s my grey streak before I started.
It doesn’t actually look that obvious, but it’s more clear in person.
Anyway, I just used a small amount of the Colour Freedom product. I applied it with an old foundation brush and wrapped three sections in foil, as directed.
And then I waited.
Here it is after! I still don’t think it’s that obvious, but the grey is definitely closer to silver, which is cool. The colour only really took on the grey hairs I already had, leaving my own natural dark hair the same colour it was before.
I’m a little disappointed that it wasn’t ‘smack you in the eye’ bright, but it’s still a nicer shade. Plus, the tube is huge so I’ll get plenty of applications out of it.
It’ll probably work better when more of my streak has turned grey!
