If grey hair is a sign of wisdom, I’m a freakin’ genius ~Unknown
I don’t usually write about beauty or beauty tips, but I have to pass this one along. I’m also probably the last person on earth to hear about this tip, but I’m hoping that maybe someone else, other than me, can benefit from this idea.
The other day, Mr. Cottage and I went to breakfast with our good friends, Rog and Penny. We hadn’t seen them in two years (they have a house in Key West where they winter) and anyways we had lots to catch up on. As usual, Penny and I chit chatted and Rog and Mr. Cottage had their own conversation going. Long story short, Penny told me that you can gently rub eye shadow onto your grey roots and it will stay put until you wash it out. Really? Where have I been all this time, looking like a skunk just before I go and get another coloring! Sunday, as I was getting ready to go to church, I looked in the mirror and had my usual skunk look. I was getting my hair colored on Monday. I remembered the eye shadow trick and thought I had nothing to lose.
Because I have a part in my hair, the grey can really be noticeable when it starts to grow out. This is my before photo on Sunday.
And this is the after photo. I was in a different room so the lighting was a bit different, but NO GREY ROOTS!
And my weapon of choice, the brown eye shadow (on the left), that I rarely use. There’s so many different shades of eye shadow today, I’m sure you can find one to match your hair color. I know they sell touch-up kits in the stores, but this took less than 5 minutes and I was good to go. Easy Peasy!
