KID ON THE BLOG!
Well, who’d have thought it - Denise
Me - a 48 year old wife, mum and part-time admin
assistant? Sure what would I know about all this
new fangled technology?
Do you know what, I have been just bursting to
voice my opinion on something which I am truly
passionate about and I thought, ’hell, why not
give blogging a go - maybe someone will listen’.
And, thank you Claire (my beautiful daughter)
for encouraging me to do so.
It’s OK To Be Grey!
Live and Let Dye Die— I always say ‘each to
Deciding to go grey is a very personal decision
and it’s not for everyone. I decided to ditch
the dye at the age of 45 for a number of reasons.
My decision was based on the fact that as I was
getting older I felt I did not look natural with
brown hair. And, this might sound funny but my
eyebrows didn’t match my dyed hair colour! As
we age, our complexions get lighter and I found
that continuing to dye my hair brown actually
made me look older - it emphasised the aging lines
in my skin. I noticed too that, as is normal for
women of the peri-/menopausal phase of life, my
hair was getting a little thinner, especially
at the front - so my scalp was more visible through
the dyed hair. I was frustrated by the fact that
I was having to colour it every two weeks to get
rid of the new grey regrowth coming through and
I resented putting chemicals onto my scalp which
might not be a healthy thing to do. I thought
to myself, ’stop fighting it, let the colour grow
out and see what I really look like’. So I gave
it a go.
