Let’s get real for a hot minute.
I’m totally 100% gray-headed under my hair color (GASP!!).
People roll their eyes when I say this.
No, really. I have a standing appointment with my hair stylist every 4-5 weeks and this appointment CANNOT BE MISSED.
And don’t even talk about coloring your own hair. Y’all go ahead with your brave selves. I had an “experience” in college where my roommates told me they knew what they were doing with hair color. I ended up with Bozo the Clown orange hair. I will NEVER EVER EVER touch my hair with color again.
My grandmother was fully gray in her 30s/40s. Obviously, I took after her because I started going completely gray right out of college. Thanks, Eunice.
This is what happens when I have brown hair (no blonde highlights) and it’s the week of my hair appointment. The gray starts shining so brightly – and not even like a halo.
I don’t have time to deal with such ridiculousness. And sometimes a girl just needs to cover up those gray roots in a hurry before running out the door.
This is my 30-second secret.
I got mine at Sally Beauty Supply.
And no, I don’t even know what Procapil is. And I don’t really care.
I fix my hair just like normal, then I get this fill-in powder (which is pretty much eyeshadow) and brush it all over the gray roots.
Don’t worry. You don’t have to go out and buy fill-in powder. Some days I just use the dark eyeshadow that comes in those free bags from the Clinique counter. I mean, how am I ever going to use all that dark shadow and not look like a raccoon??
It works PERFECTLY on my gray roots.
Give it a try. Your gray roots will thank me.
Oh, and if you wanted to feel better about yourself tonight – this is what my bathroom countertop looks like currently.
