It’s officially 10 1/2 months and I’m at a silver sister crossroads. I am HATING the different colors happening in my hair. For the first time since I began my silver journey, I’ve actually started having moments of wanting to color over it. I won’t, but I’ve had the feelings.
IT IS time to blend the color by bringing the silver all the way down to the ends. I did some serious internet searching for a colorist. I found Karina and she had over 100 excellent reviews and speaks English. Bingo!
After 6 long hours of stripping color, re-coloring, toning, cutting, she finished. We brought the front streak all the way down to the ends and peppered silver strands all through the back.
I’m super happy with the result and my fingers are crossed this was the last visit to the salon for a color.

I’m 8 months dye-free. It’s a real struggle now with the different colors and they can easily change. A center part hides my silver streak. When I pull my hair back, the silver is a lot more prominent. The silver also shows up much more in the sunlight. It all just depends Sometimes it feels dramatically different and other times I barely notice it.
I recently cut 4-5 inches off and I started using the purple shampoo once a week to try to tone down the colored portions.
Keep on keepin’ on.

Ready to see the crazy? Silver hair, blonde hair, brown hair, dark hair, Don’t Care. I’m 6 months dye free and I have about 3 inches of natural growth. My struggle now is with the colored portion of my hair. I’m hoping (fingers crossed) by October the silver will be eye level. Thinking the big chop and color to match the silver will happen then.
To be continued…

I’m at the 5 months mark since I last colored my hair. My silver roots are now beyond roots, and I am officially obsessed. I’m fascinated by the new colors that are happening. It also amazes me how different my silver strands look in different lighting. The pics below were taken on the same day.

I’m 4 months dye free and I have begun the calico cat phase. My hair is now silver, dark brown, dyed brown, dyed blonde.
Most of the time letting my hair go gray gives me supreme confidence. Then there are the WTH am I doing moments.
It’s so weird that my hair color has such a direct effect on my self esteem whether it’s silver, blonde, or brown. So weird and SO WRONG.
