Gray Hair Today. No Gray Tomorrow

Thank you to No Gray for partnering with Unlikely Martha. I have been compensated for this post. All opinions are mine.

Indecisiveness is weaved into the fabric of who I am. One minute I’m feeling something, the next minute I am not. I can over think the smallest of things and jump the gun on far more significant scenarios. One thing is certain, I like options.

Options are great. Having the ability to change effortlessly from one option to another in a world where we have so many things to choose from is refreshing. Not having to feel totally committed to something involving the way I look makes me extremely happy!

I’ve been very vocal about not dying my hair and embracing my gray strands that I also affectionately refer to as glitter highlights. I take special care in making sure my stylist cuts them just right so that they fall as a continuous layer, but lately I’ve been thinking about how those glitter sprinkled strands might look like blended in with the rest of my hair.

I thought about putting in a rinse but I know those don’t often take well coupled with the fact that I don’t do hair salons creates a major problem. A huge mess of a problem, I know because I’ve tried it before.

Instead I’m giving No Gray a go. This small bottle comes equipped with a comb that can allow me to cover as many or as little glitter highlights as I like and the best part is the color is temporary. I don’t have to be married to the thought of living without my gray strands that I love so much depending on what day it is.

One of the reasons I have decided against completely dyeing my hair is the time involved and cost of upkeep. No Gray is a great choice for those of you that choose to dye. The small size makes it easy to slide into your purse to cover your roots until you can make it to the salon. We all know how soon those pesky roots can pop up and this is a great option to extend your color and investment.

Being open to options turns making hard decisions on whether to dye or not to dye your hair a little bit easier to make. If you are uncertain about whether to dye permanently I would suggest trying out No Gray as a great temporary option. You may find that you like the option of rocking your glitter highlights one day and having those strands fall in solidarity with the rest of your hair the next. With this option water and shampoo is your fix for going back to natural.

Are you at odds on whether to dye your hair, or are you embracing your glitter highlights?!

    Since my 20s, I’ve said that once I start going gray, I’m gonna embrace it and not dye my hair. Who knew those little buggers would show up around 30?! Now that I’m 36 with a baby, I’ve got a little cluster around the left temple and a few strays throughout… just a few. If I start to get a Rogue thing happening, that would be kinda hot. I like that this No Gray gives you the option to pick and choose which “glitter highlights” you wanna keep for the moment.

    I wonder how this would work with my hair curly? I have a LOT of gray and have been back and forth about whether or not to keep dying it. I like the idea of using something that isn’t as harsh and temporary.

    I have been fighting my gray strands for a few years and just recently starting doing a rinse every 6 weeks specifically for covering gray hair. At 40, I think I may be getting the Stacey London gray streak & if that happens I will let it roll! I think that’s pretty fly!

    What a great option for covering gray! I didn’t realize a product like this is out there how perfect and sound easy to use too.

    Within the past year I started using henna as a way to get rid of my grays. It turns my grays a reddish color. So it’s a nice change and a little pop of color. I like that it doesn’t cost much and it’s something I can do on my own. I’m still on the same box of henna that I first bought. But it should last a long time since I only use a tablespoon of the powder every 3 months or so.

    I’m getting tired of coloring my grays but I’m not ready to embrace it yet. I’d love to have a good option without expensive salon visits.

    I think your hair is beautiful! I don’t have any gray hair right now. I am a natural ginger, and I love my hair. I’m not looking forward to it turning. I’m glad there are products out there like this that can help.

    I had no idea this was out there. I’ve been getting gray hairs since I was 18. They pop up just a few weeks after my hair appointments!

    I love dyeing my hair funky bright colors, but it is definitely an upkeep. This looks like a great alternative to hide the grays.

    I have been trying to decide if i should stop dying my hair. I find the grey comes back after a few days. This looks like a great alternative.

    I am starting to have a little bit of gray hair, but I have been dyeing my hair even before I got ’em. And I think I’ll continue to dye it to hide the gray hair. 🙂

    I do dye my hair and I still have random grays that pop in every now and then. I actually pluck them from my head! 😉

    Yup, I got grays and I also dye my hair. My hair actually changes colors from the sun so I prefer to get my hair dyed to keep it one color. Your hair looks amazing!

    I am the queen of indecisiveness, I’m a true Libra and I just can’t help myself. Like you I complete control of my look because I like options. I change my look in a New York minute and that means my hair too. I have gray for days and have since I was in High School. I also have a glitter eye brow hair CALL THE PEOPLE!

    Because I need change my hair is colored, not to hide the gray but because I get bored with a look easy.

    This is pretty cool that you can fix your greys without dying your whole head of hair. I worry about getting grey hair when I get older.

    Your hair looks awesome! It’s really important that you find the right hair color that treats your hair gently and meshes well with your unique texture. It sounds like you’ve found just that!
