Going back to my roots – Yes the grey ones!

For a while there I had forgotten why I started this blog and got stuck in an Instagram world of fashion and followers and that really wasn’t why I decided to lay my thoughts out on the internet. So I am going back to my roots, yes the grey ones!

I originally started the blog as I really hadn’t come to terms with going grey, I couldn’t colour my hair due the severe allergies (see previous post’s) and this blog was going to be all about me going grey and living with it. Whilst setting up the blog, I set up an Instagram account too, followed some Silver haired beauties and then started following more influencers with all their fashion and style advice and some how got caught in a trap of wanting to be like them and get more followers.

A friend asked me “what does that mean more followers”? And they were right, this wasn’t about the followers, this was about me, my pixel of the internet. As I tell others, be¬†true to yourself and your tribe will follow anyway.

Whilst I was in Instagram mode my hairdressers found a greyt hair colour/dye (Elumen hair dye, will do a post on that soon) that I am not allergic too and have now used it for the past 7 months and I blinking love it. But it did stop me from writing about going grey, as I have deferred it (for a while, well 6 weeks at a time).

So I am heading back to those grey roots because they are there, whether I hide them or not.
