I am a hair dye virgin!

As you may have guessed already, this is not a beauty blog. I have no idea when it comes to hair. I usually make it to the hairdresser maybe 2-3 times a year. My mum would be horrified...she has a standing appointment every 6 weeks!  I like to think I'm low maintenance, not lazy.

I have been a blonde my entire life, starting out with white hair as a child, and gradually going darker as I get older. I'm told there aren't too many natural blondes aged over 30...something to do with oestrogen levels to get to the ripe ol' age of 38 without every dying my hair is somewhat of an achievement.

Lately I've been thinking maybe it's time. Maybe I should be brave and just dye it. I fear that once I start though, I won't be able to stop. I fear that I'll be committing to something that will cost too much that could be better spent elsewhere. Perhaps I should just be thankful that I actually have hair on my head!

The downside of staying "au naturale"...I am now finding so many grey hairs mixed in with the blonde!  They are slowly, but surely booting their blonde sisters from my scalp and moving in. Not happy. I think it's time for change...and if I'm going to lose my hair dye virginity, I'm going to go all the way!! I let hubby in on my intentions, and he's a little scared. lol.

I'm loving the ombre look, particularly blonde through to soft, feminine and pretty.

Do you think I can pull off this look? Is this a mid-life crisis?
