I'm 48 and going grey. I've been having my hair dyed with a semi permanent for about 5 years and have recently moved to permanent. Being a mid brownish colour it needs doing every 5 week. Fine.
However I recently found out that my system doesn't detox properly and I already have toxins in my system that would class me as pre cancerous.
So I'd be an idiot to carry I guess.
What could I have done to my hair that would allow they greys to come through naturally. I want to avoid a halo effect slowly growing out. I'm happy to have semis, high/low lights?? For say the next 6 months to get me past the tricky stage. And then possibly a shorter cut/restyle.
Hair used to be straight but now quite curly unless blow dried. Previously highlights have eventually gone very gingery.
Would you consider henna? Standard henna gives a red tone, but Lush do a brown version (or you can add indigo to red henna powder for the same effect). It's non toxic, and has a good conditioning effect on the hair.
