And…He’s super good at it! When I started going gray right after getting married, and we were super poor from just graduating college and getting married, I started having my husband, Chris dye my hair at home. It took some experimenting and learning a lot about what I liked, didn’t like, what my hair was like, but I feel like we’ve got it now!
He’s actually even cut and layered my hair a few times and he is so good! Chris and I both like to save money where we can and so I started cutting his hair when we started dating thanks to some good youtube videos, but now he does both mine and his own! That guy can fade his hair incredibly! #impressed!!! We have tried lots of home dye kits and I think I have found my favorite color and brand. Zotos Professional reached out to me and asked if I would want to try their products and be apart of their Age Beautifully campaign and with a 31 year old head full of grays, Im really glad we tried them out!
I have learned that my hair pulls red out from just about any color, so I have to use Cool, Ash colors or my hair goes maroon. I’ve also learned that medium’s make my hair super dark and darks make my hair black. So, I was excited to try their Medium Ash Brown and see if it did what I was hopeful for.
Chris teases me a lot when we do my hair because I have a bit of a cycle of wanting to dye my hair, doing it, hating it and then doing it all over again. I tell him that’s because the color I’m always hopeful to get doesn’t work out… or the color doesn’t last like I wish it would.. Please tell me, actually, please tell him that I’m not the only lady who does this.
I am happy to say that this wasn’t the case this time! My hair came out the perfect chocolatey medium brown with no red, no grays and looked healthier than it did before we did it!
We have used two of their products so far, and I really enjoyed both of them. We have used their Medium Ash Brown Age Beautiful permanent color which I love and, more recently, we tried their Bronze Tint Shine. This comes in several colors, even clear, but this is a demi- permanent product that we applied 4 weeks later to spruce up, blend grays, add shine and add a little bit of bronze glow. Super pretty and only took 10 minutes! Both were easy to use, smelled great, hid my grays perfectly, made my hair super soft and smooth, the colors were exactly what I was hopeful for and have lasted wonderfully!
There are a few reasons I truly do prefer doing my hair at home and no longer in a salon. Sure, I definitely enjoy a fancy haircut in a salon every now and then, but I truly prefer dyeing my hair at home. The first reason is the price. The last time I had my hair professionally dyed was in college and it ran me about $120. That’s 2 weeks of groceries for us, which makes paying around $15 lot more doable for us! The second is the last few times I had my hair done professionally, I left feeling upset because I asked for a Medium Ash and left both times with black/maroon hair.
After this happened several different times at several different salons, I pretty much felt done with that. And most importantly, I can be at home, in a robe and spend extra time with the Mr. and the girls. I also love how into it Chris gets. He’s an artist and he loves creative process and actually takes me and the process seriously, so I know he’s going to do a great job. If he had it his way, he says he would let my hair just be natural and actually thinks my grays are sexy:D We have different definitions of sexy right now:D
While I love this about him, and am so thankful for the way he sees me, I am really thankful that he is still helping me keep those grays covered for now. I truly hope the little ladies marry dudes who see them like Chris sees me and will do things like dye their hair for them if that’s what they want! Chris doesn’t do this for me because he loves doing it, but because he loves me and wants to do this if it makes me happy. He’s so selfless, even in dyeing my hair and I know that I am so blessed to be married to a dude like this! Single ladies, marry a guy that will do your hair for you:D
