today's post is a little personal. 
the morning i turned 25 (a few years ago) i woke up the morning of my birthday to my first gray hair. crazy! for a while there was just one or two, but then they started multiplying... no i was not plucking them. just hard to hide when there are more than just a few. 
getting hooked on having someone color/highlight my hair was something i was addicted to for too many years and didn't want to turn back to. so i decided to try it on my own. 
i went with something not as intense, no as hard to mess up and something that would washout (over 3 months) if i really messed up that bad. 
wella is the brand i use. i chose a demi-permanent haircolor (non lasting) that needs to be mixed with the color charm activation lotion: 1 part color, 2 parts lotion. 
it looks a little dark in this picture but my color of choice is 6G 6/35 dark golden brown (this is almost exactly my natural color)!

helpful hints:
-wear a shirt you don't mind getting stains on 
-wear gloves!! 
-i like to use a slant tipped applicator 
-lay a towel out around your work area- its a little messy 
-be sure to catch the drips on your forehead 
-try to section off your hair, cover all of your scalp first, then go back for the rest
(rub it in to your scalp to get full coverage!)
-let sit for 20  minutes (you can use a shower cap, but i don't)
-when its time to rinse, just get in the shower and let it all run down the drain

  1. Hi! I would like to open beauty salon. Does anybody have an experience in this business? There are too many options in different salon equipment. Could anybody give me an advise? What store is more reliable to buy Sterilizer cabinet and Antique sterilizer cabinet. I'm choosing between Advance-Esthetic.Com and Spa&Equipment websites.
