When I'm 64....

I have been told on more than one occasion that red hair is the first to go grey. As a natural ginger this fact has never concerned me much due to a total reliance on Henna to revitalise my increasingly lacklustre mane. An application of the green goo leaves me russet once more and I can go on denying my dull auburn locks for another month or so.

Flicking through this morning's Guardian Weekend I found myself transfixed by these two beautiful silver-haired ladies and considered for once the prospect of my own potentially grey-haired future. Wow, if this is what getting older can look like, you can count me in. As for the long and tedious process involved in Henna-ing, well I'm sure I shall stick with it for some time to come yet, but who knows maybe one day I shall go with the grey, wear it long and surfy; it'll certainly be easier to maintain when I'm on my grand world-tour.

  1. I love those two, I always see them in the Guardian! They make me wish the grey streak I have in my hair would be more prominent.
