This might not be a secret (although, I hope it is), that I have gray hair. I started going gray when I was a teenager. It started slow, with just a few strands here and there. Until our second son was born, I went back and forth between coloring my hair and not caring. After our second little munchkin was born, I was a picture that just happened to have the back of my head in the corner.
Lo and behold, I had a huge gray streak at the end of my part that stood out so much! It was a shock to me, because I wasn't expecting to see so much gray hair. In fact, I had another gray streak that I did know about. It just always happened to be hidden by my bangs. After I saw that picture, I decided I was too young to go around with gray streaks. When our second son was born, I was 24. Definitely not the time to look like a chic gray-haired lady!
There is nothing wrong with gray hair, but I really don't want to have a full head of gray hair right now. In fact, I think I am about 80% gray at this point. I am very, very happy to have an at-home hair color routine that fits into my schedule. Schwarzkopf is a hair care brand that I've used for years, and their Schwarzkopf Keratin Coloring Kit is perfect for my situation. Gray hair is also a very different texture from 'normal' hair, so the keratin treatment included in this box is a wonderful part of my routine. It also insures that the color is even.
My favorite color is Schwarzkopf Keratin Coloring Kit, 4.6 Intense Cocoa. There are a couple of the brunette shades in the Schwarzkopf Keratin Color product line that are very pretty, but this one has a gorgeous warmth to it that I love.
These are the items you get in the box. I have the pre-treatment front and center! It really is amazing.
This is before I started the pre-treatment.
I also wanted to share my outfit. There's no wonder why hair stylists always wear all black ... you can't see the hair color dye stains! I prefer to wear all-black, just in case some of the dye gets on me.
With gloves on my hands, I apply the pre-treatment to my ends. It has a heavy scent to it, and it smells like a salon to me. It smells really good!
After the pre-treatment, I mix the color in the bottle and apply it to my roots. Since my hair is lighter on the ends, I only apply this to my roots. It's so easy to keep my gray roots covered up in between my ombre appointments!
With my gray roots completely gone, I honestly gain some confidence back. When my grays are really obvious, I don't pull my hair back at all. When my roots are touched up and back to looking like themselves, I love to pull my hair back for an easy hair style during the week!
Now that I've shared my at-home hair color routine, tell me how you care for your hair at home!
