Going Gray….

by Kimberly on January 24, 2009

Well not quite yet. But I’m sure I’ll be there some day.  I just got together with my sister for a family dinner.  She has been dying her hair for 3 years now.  She has been dying it a black color.   I personally don’t think she needs to. But that’s what she wants.  I had herd a while back that dying  your hair black is not good for you, as far as you health goes. When you go on the internet you can see many “reports” saying now permanent hair dye is being link to current cancers, like bladder cancer for one.

I personally have done my own research and feel that I will not be dying my hair with any of those hair dye chemicals.  I had done it in the pasted a few times. I have done high lights a few times.  But it has been years since I have done that.

So what will I do if I don’t want to show my grays when I do get them.. Well there are two things that I can do.  One is buy organic hair dye which is 100% Natural Henna. It’s plant based and washes out in 3 weeks so doesn’t stay in long. It just wraps around the stock of your hair.  The second is to buy wigs.  I went looking on the internet to see what they cost. You can get them any were from $27-1200. So there is a wide range of prices. Plus the fun thing about wigs, is you can change your hair style and color.  The thing about a wig is there is no mess. Just take it off if you want something different.

Personally, I like the wig ideal. But I will stay away from the permanent hair dye. I don’t want to risk my health for a few grays.

Kim, are you serious about the wig? You know we live in Florida, don’t you think it will be a little too hot? lol

You’re too young! I’d use the natural dye for awhile.
