'Two years ago, I took the plunge. A voyage into the unknown, with no real idea what colour the other side would be. Pewter, salt & pepper, or white?
Quite a change, either way, from the naturally very dark brown hair I had throughout my melanin years. I first saw a few grey hairs in my 20s, & was increasingly like King Canute from there on in, battling with an ever powerful silver tide… Unsightly roots after 4 weeks, 3 weeks, then 2 weeks. Increasingly realising that this was a battle I was not going to win, & that I was also throwing good money after bad on expensive dyes, full of nasties, which gave me headaches, & an itchy scalp.
It wasn’t an easy process. My hair has always been long, so I had to have it cut unusually short, which I hated, however, it was a practical way of removing the dye as quickly as possible. Looking back, it probably took about 9 months to be completely dye-free – my new baby! It started with what I called the Mortisha line, which grew wider by the week, & then turned into the Badger. Neither look was one I would have willingly chosen, however, I was determined to persevere. To my surprise, I realised that my dye-free hair was actually going to be very light too. Friends & colleagues then started asking me if I had had “my hair done”, thinking that I had had streaks put in. To my reply that it was actually the opposite, their surprise, & complimentary responses spurred me on. Grey also the new black, so I was lucky that I had timed it to fit in with a colour which was increasingly fashionable anyway. I am so glad that I did too! Better for my health, better for my pocket, & it’s what nature now intends. I decided to fully embrace my new image, & was then on the look out for good quality shampoos, which would enhance the colour, not fight against it.
A friend recommended White Hot Hair, & I immediately bought the Brilliant & Glorious shampoos, along with the Luminous conditioner. I have since also purchased the hair mask. I absolutely love the products too! My hair is healthy, shiny, easy to manage. The shampoo smells great, looks great, & I actually have the travel pack with an attractive carry case, which always goes on holiday with me. In the words of David Soul, I’m a “Silver Lady” & you can “take my word” that I’ve now “seen the light”, thanks to White Hot Hair!'
