Bad Dye Job: Eggs-actually What You Need to Avoid
We are so quick to associate a bad bout with the hairdresser with a lapse in personal deportment. When the ladies rush to cover grey hairs, the can sometimes end up with something worse. Have you noticed how dreadful hair coloring looks in the sunlight? Browns and ashes turn an unnatural shade of red. Black gives the look of just having a close encounter with the inkwell. Besides, who do you think you are fooling?
A few years ago, I attended the funeral of an octogenarian. There wasn't one grey-haired woman in the place, including the deceased. Many of these folks sported canes and walkers, but by God, not a single grey hair. I mean, what is the point? Your skin, muscle tone and joints are wearing the ravages of time, so why can't your hair? I think grey hair is pretty and certainly softens the look of an aging face.
If you are really trying to achieve a younger persona, try updating your wardrobe. Nothing advertises your advancing age more than a polyester pantsuit and an ugly purse.
