So I have had the odd grey hair pop through since I was 18. I was always amused as for me, my thick hair has been a hindrance at worst and occasionally a rocking bun. I never learned to do my hair and any skill I now have has been gained in my 30’s and is limited to a bun, ponytail, top knot and sometimes I can blow dry it straight and it look only vaguely hedge like.

I’ve colored, cut, blow dried it, not blow dried it and done whatever I wanted because it’s only hair.

I have had it long and short, fire engine red, purple, and dark brown plus long stints of natural as well.

I have a skin condition called seborrheic dermatitis which is like chunky cradle cap for adults and so my greatest interest in my hair is not looking like a lamington!

I’m currently dying out a brilliant red stage which was fun and I’m due to go back (or not) for another color. Or cut. Whatever floats my boat. And I’ve noticed silver greys popping up.

I’m actually excited to see them for some reason I can’t tell you as I honestly don’t know. And I’m undecided why I’m going to do. I mean, I will go color it again but that is because I’m bored, not to cover the grey hairs (there is literally only a handful but…) as I’m intrigued by their appearance.

Husband Dear cares not either – and has never had an opinion other than ‘You’re hair looks lovely’ or ‘are you bored and going to change it?’

I know some women who totally rock their grey hair and some women who banish them and maybe I’m excited because I will get to find out which woman I am?

Anyway, the irony is not lost on me that my grey hairs are a grey area of decision for me either!!
