Bottle Blonde Forever

Duffy Brown here and its time to touch up my hair and get rid of the gray. Actually with being a woman of a certain age I’m beyond touching up, it’s more a full out assault to get rid of gray. And that brings up the questions, Why bother?

I think...don’t know for sure with this present dye job...I’m salt and pepper with a lot more salt than pepper these days. So maybe it’s time to just embrace who I am and what I am and go natural.

I checked my source to see if this would work for me. My source for this as well as room décor, Halloween costumes, Christmas decorations and all else is pinterest. What do other woman look like in the S&P situation.

Some looked really good and others...woof! I think it had a lot to do with the makeup used with the hair. Hair is just one of the issues to deal with in looking good and the S&P gals that look the best were the ones made up the best. Makeup counts for a lot.

But after looking in the mirror and trying to see me as S&P I gave up. I need to be blonde. If I live to be 100 I’ll do it as a blonde.

I’ve been dying my hair since I was eighteen. There was a thing on my college application back in the day and they asked hair color and my mom said I was dishwater blonde. Dishwater anything is not pretty so I went to the store and bought Lady Clairol and we’ve been BFFs ever since.


I don’t dye my hair all over I use the streak method where I just dye strands blonde and with my hair being short I get the many shade of blonde effect that works okay. And the big thing is that it’s cheap. One box of dye is ten bucks and lasts six months.

So, what about you? Are you a natural gal or a dye job like me? Is it DIY or do you have a salon? Any plans for color change in the future or are you going to be a bottle blonde like me till you’re 100.


Hugs, Duffy Brown
