that it is just an old wives tale. The problem is, for those of us going grey, it seems all too true. My hair has a funny habit of growing in grey and by the time it reaches my bun, reverting to my original colour. So I have a lot of grey around my face - especially when my hair is pulled back - but none in my bun. It looks as if I'm forever growing out chemical colour and never making any progress.Progress from June 2006 - January 2011
Mid-Dark brown with natural red and silver highlights; fringe/bangs.
Starting length: 25"/62.5cm (BSL)

shampoo on the scalp.

'Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as braided hair and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes. Instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfailing beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight.' 1 Peter 3:3-4
