Silver highlights!

Hello Dear Reader,

My hair grows really quickly and the white is growing out. It’s been coloured for almost five years and it’s going to take ‘getting used to’. 

I don’t know what I’m going to look like. I’ll adjust as it grows. 

Here’s some lovely style icons I’ve adopted from Pinterest. I think they look great. You’ll have to wait a couple of years until it’s completely grown out. 


I’m glad I prepared our suppers for this week and I’m a busy bee and it’s great to come home to an easy meal.

Until tomorrow,

Love Froogs xxxx

  1. Those photos are lovely esp. the top right messy bun. Mine’s not coloured and the top layer is dark brown but strangely underneath is very grey so when it’s up it’s easy to see. I’m glad I didn’t colour it though – hate the faff and the cost. Persevere! !

  2. Sorry but I think it’s really ageing. You have posted before about your hair care routine which seemed easy enough and not expensive so why not maintain what suits you?

      • I don’t agree it is ageing. I have decided to grow out my grey as it is quite expensive to have it well coloured at a hairdresser. I have been paying attention to ladies with grey hair recently and find it no more ageing than obviously coloured hair that clashes with a persons skin tone, plus there is a shade of highlighted blonde that is very close to grey.

    • I find the most “ageing ” thing of all is unnaturally dark hair at an age where your skin tone has changed . I think silver will look fantastic on you .

  3. I let my hair grow out several years ago and it is prettier than my hair was all of the years that I was coloring it! It is a beautiful silver color and after menopause I’ve finally gotten beautiful waves in my formerly “poker straight” hair!

  4. Great minds think alike, after colouring mine for years I stopped almost a year ago. It’s grown out a lot. Not having to colour it has been an amazing release I must say!

  5. my hair is vert short and it would be much to expensive to keep coloring…have only recently gone very short so the grey now really shows up…I get lots of compliments…love the look of long grey hair…

  6. I have never coloured my hair. I think yours is already looking “alive” with the silver threads weaving through it.
    I agree with LH, persevere.
    People who continue to maintain their youthful hair colour begin to look older as their hair colour often looks harsh against their skin tone.
    As you say why deny your age, be proud of it and enjoy being you.

  7. I think that it it very much a personal choice. I am in my sixties and live in S California USA where most want to look young. Hollywood is just a half hour away. I color my hair. At first it was a bad experience because I could not get the color right. But now I go to an online service that sells me the same formula every time, when I want it. ( e salon this is not an ad for them but may be useful info) I feel not ready to go grey yet. I think I would like to wait until my hair goes white whenever that is.

  8. My daughter has apparently gotten her Dad’s hair genes–he was grey by 30ish, she is 52 and more grey than I am at 73. It looks good, though. I think yours will look good too–barely grey enough to notice at the moment.

  10. You will look great, especially as you have so lovely, thick hair! I am not so lucky, my hair started greying and thinning at the same time.

  11. I’m in the process of growing out my blonde highlights that I’ve had for years. It’s a bit messy at the moment but a couple more cuts and it will all be gone. I’m happy these days to just be me and highlights are just one more thing that I was spending money on that I’m finally ready to let go of.

  12. I stopped colouring mine 4 years ago aged 47 and have never looked back. I love the colour now and cringe at old photos where I can see how awful the dyed look was … it didn’t suit me at all. Most people with grey hair have different highlights and shades running naturally through it so it looks much prettier than a flat allover single colour. It will suit you x

  14. You’re going to look fab as your hair returns to its natural hue. I have a couple friends with the most beautiful a salt & pepper (mostly salt) thick curly hair. I’m sooo envious! And none of us are 50 yet. I have sandy dirty blond hair…it’s not graying gracefully…so I keep it covered up

  15. have you considered having silver streaks (showing my age, I mean silver highlights!) that way it will blend more naturally and you will see what it will look like. I’m not lucky enough to let mine go silver naturally as it will not be silver, it is an awful grey patch work. but good luck

  17. I think your hair will look great although the growing out stage might be painful. I coloured mine for many years and got sick of the same blonde look among many women of my age. My hair wouldn’t hold a colour and looked really unhealthy. I stopped colouring it three years ago and although the grow out was awful I’ve never regretted it. It helped that my husband was incredibly supportive and encouraging and now loves my grey hair. The most difficult part is getting through the first few months.

  18. I grew mine out after about 15 years of do it yourself colouring. I did mine by growing it out for about 4 months, and then getting it cut quite short. Then I proceeded to let it grow again. Mine was quite white in the front (my father, and his mum both had completely white hair in their 40’s). I quite like how it looks now, and no messing with chemicals every 6 weeks. I really like the idea of silver highlights while you are growing it out.
