Need some hair advice

Hello! I promise I will get caught up on my Project 365, but first I have a question to ask all of you. I am starting to get gray hair :( I have so far been able to cover it with just getting highlights every 6 months (it's mainly just in the front near my part). However, now it's getting to the point where I will need to do it more than every 6 months and I cannot afford to keep getting it done. Plus I've gone from just highlights to some color and highlights.
So, what I'm thinking about doing is coloring my own hair. I've never done it before and have no idea where to start. Do any of you do your own color/highlights? What brand do you use or recommend? Any advice would be greatly appreciated! I'm tired of seeing the gray and I'm only 31 :(

Thanks in advance for all of your help!!!!


  1. I color my own hair all the time! It is fun to experiment and worse case you can just get another color haha. :) I've tried pretty much every brand and they are all good, I would however avoid the foam dye.

  2. I used to get my hair done in a salon (I did for about 12 years), but I've been doing my hair myself for the past two years. I use the Nutrisse Nourishing Color Foam. It's maybe like $7 to $10 and found almost anywhere (Walmart, Target, Ulta, the drugstores, etc).

  3. Coloring your hair one color is totally doable! Highlights on the other hand?? Avoid it! You'll either fry your hair or it will turn out orange :)
    Just remember, no one notices the grey's like you do! It's always so much worse in our own eyes!

  4. I have no experience, but good luck!

  5. I use box dye all the time. I usually go with Garnier I think but I often grab whats on sale. I am not a hair guru though.


I LOVE comments!!! :) I promise I will write back if you leave a comment :)
