So I dyed my own hair for the first time on Thursday night, because I had my online funeral training course at the weekend and didn’t want to resemble a skunk-cum-badger. It was very simple indeed – I just mixed the dye and daubed it on my parting, not bothering with the grey hair underneath. This is my ‘before’ picture:
Then I had to go outside and clap for the NHS with dye all over my hair. As a friend said, I should have been clapping for Garnier instead!
The dye didn’t ‘take’ completely, meaning it didn’t cover all my greys. But it did a good enough job that I no longer felt self-conscious – and it only took half an hour and £3.99. Hurray for Laboratoires Garnier!
