When I started to go grey I dyed my hair first of all my own colour, a mousy brown. I got more adventurous and had streaks put in then decided to go a lighter brown, then even lighter still. There came a time when I wasn't sure exactly what colour was underneath. I knew it was going to be a grey of some sort so when I'd reached 'lightest ash blond' I decided that enough was enough and I would dye no more. Here's my 'normal' colour. I think it deserves a little ditty.
To the tune 'Go West' by the Pet Shop Boys
Come on, come on, come on, come on
(Together) we will go our way
(Together) we won’t dye today
(Together) with our own fair hands
(Together) we will make our plans
(Together) we will aim more high
(Together) tell dyed hair goodbye
(Together) we will be so true
(Together) this is what we'll do
Go grey - life will be less stressful there
Go grey - it is only fair
Go grey - never pink or blue
Go grey - this is what we’re gonna do
Go grey, this is what we’re gonna do, go grey.
