Some weeks ago i cut my hair at the front to create a Fringe, what i believe you Americans refer to as a Bang....strange, but anyway i think its rubbish on me but i feel perhaps if i wasnt quite as generous with the chopping it would have been okay. Still it can only grow and improve on a weekly process right????

I just wanted a different style to wear plus it hides a multitude of sins......e.g The Grey.

Well people, the photos below show my progress through the retightening process this Saturday gone.

My hair grows mega fast in the crown area and as you know it was exactly a week to the day i coloured my hair. If you click on both pictures you will see the grey sipping through at the roots. And to come to think of it, despite the fact that i spent ages ensuring i covered each and every lock with colour, it would appear i made a bit of a mish mash with it, but you know what, i dont care as i am going through a process.
This picture shows the completed back section. It is now taking a wee while to finish as my hair grows in length.
Three quarters have been completed with just 1 quarter to go, i think this photo shows the grey more, which just confirms my next plan of going lighter......gosh how i wish i could just go for it and let it all hang out. psychologically am just not ready YET!

Well people I said I'll be back once I have decided on what am going to do re the colour thing. I used Henna for a good 14months and because of the percentage of grey i had, i wasn't ecstatic about the colour result.....I basically went with the flow and learnt to love the bright tangy orangey colour. The sad truth is now that i have gone a bit darker i actually miss it.

I had seen Naturtint just before i decided on the Henna but decided I was going to give Henna a damn good go and if things didn't work out, i could always fall back on 'Naturtint' the permanent hair colour below.

I started off my sending a picture of my hair to the 'customer services' and asked for advice on what shade/shades i should use in order to achieve a much lighter colour (7N) given that i have 95% grey and i have been using Henna.

Within 24hours i got a reply to my email and the lady was very helpful indeed. She suggested that in order to achieve the shade i wanted (7N -HAZELNUT BLONDE), i would have to use a darker colour like the shade below (5N LIGHT CHESTNUT BROWN) to cover the entire head and then at the next application, i could go ahead and use the 7N which would then lift the colour by at least two shades.

She went on to explain that because I had previously used Henna which merely coats the hair, it also prevents other colourant from lifting colour in the first instance, hence her suggesting first application of a darker colour then going for the lighter as a lift.

Naturtint Permanent Hair Colorant with Vegetable ingredients is the leading alternative hair colour in the UK health market and fastest growing colorant in Spain with 24 colours which can be mixed easily & economically to create an infinite range. No ammonia or resorcinol it is dermatologically tested and whats more, it covers 100% grey and can lighten up to 2 shades at a time. It is enriched with Soya, Corn, Coconut and Wheat Extracts it also adds wonderful shine and vitality to the hair.


Well that's it folks, I should leave you now to check out the results as i believe the photos speak for themselves.

Just a quick post to let you know how my locks are progressing. Am afraid my love affair with Henna has ended.......

....The reason for this is because i have far too much grey than i care to admit and there is nothing more frustrating that spending hours with the Henna applied then spend an age rinsing it to find that the coverage isn't sufficient. So at the mo i am doing a bit of research to see what products out there would be safe to use after Henna.

In the meantime here are some pics taken recently of my locks. ENJOY.
