Fashion Friday: Where did the grey come from


I was startled to realize just how many grey hairs had taken up residence on my head. I didn’t realize they were there until I was pregnant and I had to stop coloring my hair. I know I didn’t have to but I felt like I should. I was so excited after I had the baby that I could color my hair. It made me feel normal again. I am not sure why coloring ones hair would make them feel normal but it did it for me. I have tried several brands over the years and the one that works best for me was Fredrick Fekkai Frederic Fekkai Salon Color, 7R Medium Auburn Audrey . I love the overall color and the feel of my hair afterwards.


 Note: This photo was from several months after I gave birth. I am not Heidi Klum. It took me months to get back to my regular shape.

I am not sure about all of you but when I decide I am going to do something well it has to happen “NOW”. I decided I needed to dye my hair right away. The problem with Fekkai is I have to order it. I did what any other coupon blogger does and I bought a hair color on sale. I choose  Samy Fat Foam. It was 1/3 of the price. I was not impressed. I liked the foam. It made coloring my hair quick and less messy. I however was not impressed by the coverage nor was I impressed with the texture of my hair after I applied it. I used Samy Fat Foam Hair Color #R5 Medium Reddish Brown. I didn’t feel like the color looked even as you can see in the picture the day after application. In fact while washing my hair I lost a lot of hair during the process which freaked me out. I did the allergy test and I was fine prior to placing on the color. When you start seeing your hair go down the drain it is a bit of a shock.  I would say overall that sometimes saving money and time is not worth the outcome. It took a couple of weeks for my hair to return to normal. I have since ordered my Fekkai and I am okay spending the difference for peace of mind and good hair. Ps: it is 1/3 of having it done in the salon.
