Monday Musings- A Fresh Start

Monday Musings- A Fresh Start

Happy Monday, ladies. I hope your weekend was a fun one. We had rain which allowed me to catch up on some reading and do my ironing…I know, I lead an exciting life:) I also moved some things around in my wardrobe and started another bag to donate once things open back up here.

Here’re are a few things on my mind this week-

Location Is Everything

Have you heard of the Nuface? It’s an at-home, advanced microcurrent facial toning device that promises to help improve facial contour, tone, and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. trinity nuface in packageI bought one a couple of years ago because women seem to love it! I was excited to use it but hardly ever used it. Not because it’s hard to use or time-consuming, because it’s quick and easy. I never used it because of its location. I kept it on my dressing table where I sit to apply  “putty and paint” as my husband calls makeup. By the time I spotted it there each morning it was too late to use. I vowed to remember the next day, then the day after that, and so on. I never did remember to use it before my shower, so I gave up and stowed it under my sink.trinity nuface and gel primer on counter

After reading another glowing review last week, I hauled it out and plugged it in right next to my toothbrush. Not glamorous, but I’ve used it every morning since. Proving that location is everything and that having things handy means you don’t have to rely on your memory. A win-win for me.

Winewine tasting

We belong to several wine clubs and love to go wine tasting. Several weeks ago I got an email asking if I’d like to receive two bottles of Far Niente wine in exchange for sharing Far Niente’s Join a Club, Help the Community initiative. This initiative donates $50 for every wine club signup to the Restaurant Workers’ Community Foundation and the Napa Valley Food Bank through the end of May to provide relief to those in need. I said heck yes and decided to share it here as well in case any of you are wine lovers like we are.

Hair Raisingpainting on hair color

The salons here in California aren’t open yet and are showing no signs of doing it anytime soon 🙁 The longer I go without a trim or high and low lights, the thinner and flatter my hair becomes. My daughter is adamant I shouldn’t trim my own hair but I did do my bangs and that turned out ok. The color issue is a real struggle. The decision to go gray or silver has many working parts but the one I forgot, was how much benefit I get from the color process.madison reed hair color kit

I have messaged Madison Reed and we’re talking about a color that could/would work for me. They promise salon-quality, at-home hair color that is ammonia-free and has no parabens. My mom used drug store hair color her entire life and looked great so how hard can this be?

Hummingbird Updatehummingbird at red feeder

You ladies were right! These cheeky little birds prefer the least expensive feeder possible. I took your advice and boiled the filtered water and sugar and mixture and they’re coming around! The brazen little fellas aren’t concerned with my presence at all! There are so many around they’re even drinking out of my old feeder they previously wanted no part of.

 

Do you color your own hair? I’d love to hear about your experiences.

Thanks for reading and be sure to wear what makes you feel confident.

    I coloured my hair for the first time in 20 years a couple of weeks ago. I don’t have a lot of gray but my hair colour is blah so I get it done every 10-12 weeks. Fortunately I have a wonderful stylist and when I texted her that I was desperate she went to the drugstore and sent me a picture of the brand and colour I should use along with specific instructions which included leaving it on for 45 min instead of 25 that the box recommended. I am pleased with the result but not with the mess or how difficult it was for me to sustain my arms above my shoulders for so long. So as soon as the salons open I will be back!

    Yay for the hummers! Aren’t they fun?

    About hair…I stopped coloring mine 2 years ago (I’m now 67.) I’d gone in for a color appointment, saw my stylist of over 30 years, and said I think I’m done. Totally spontaneous. We cut it short and she gave me lots of highlights so that the growing out period was pretty painless. My hair color is actually pretty! My eyebrows are still very dark brown, but somehow it all works. Once I got some length, I got a very modern short angled bob with an undercut. My hairstylist advised that a very modern haircut would offset the aging effect of silver hair—boy was she right! For the first time in my life, I get compliments on my hair! For the record, I don’t have good hair, it’s baby fine and straight as a stick. I do miss the body that coloring gave me, but find that using the right products helps with that. I use Redken Hardware for blow drying. It adds thickness to my hair without weighing it down.

    Right now, I’m missing a good haircut, but will make do until it’s safe to get one. In the meantime, Bobbi pins are my friend to keep hair out of my eyes. I’ve tried to have fun with them, using bright colors since there’s no hiding the fact that there are Bobbi pins in my hair. 😊

    Cheers to all!

    My natural colour was a warm brunette and I loved it. In my late 50’s it started to fade some and I started to colour it to my original natural colour. I retired almost 4 years ago and decided I would dye it myself because of the cost. I was using eSalon and they worked with me to get the colour pretty good but after a couple years I felt my hair was getting dry and decided I was done colouring and would just see what was under there:) My grey is fairly dark and I’m not completely grey yet but I feel like there is more volume to my hair now than before. I struggle with some hair loss especially on top but with a good cut, which I desperately need now, I’m happy with my decision.

    I’ll be interested in how your Madison Reed adventure goes. Like you, I have highlights and have been letting the gray grown in around them a bit, which has saved me from total awfulness. But it’s getting worse and worse. I’m not brave enough to try coloring at home, but if yours works out, I just might. I really notice the volume difference without color.

    Wine is always a good idea ! I know what you mean about going gray….I always feel I would not be a “good gray” ! I have been cutting my husbands hair since before our first date, so he is getting regular cuts during this time. I have baby fine, thin hair that I wear in a short, spiky pixie. It is the best cut for my hair and super easy to style. Turned 65 this year and not ready to give up color. I have so little hair….I get it cut every 4 weeks and use 1/2 of NicenEasy package. I bought a little bottle at Sally Beauty to mix it, and save the rest for the next time. It works great for me, is a real bargain, and since my hair is short and gets cut so often every 4 weeks works. I ask my hairdresser if my hair is ok, am I damaging it….and she whispers “no, you are fine”….but I don’t think she wants anyone to know because it would cut down on her business. I get lots of compliments on my color….always use the same shade. Every once in awhile I go a little more golden in the tone….I am going to continue coloring. No plans to go gray!

    I bought a Madison Reed kit. It was easy to use, I have a lot of hair so it seemed like more dye was needed… but I made it work & it came out just fine!
    Also, I cut my own hair using the “unicorn/scrunchie” method that is on Youtube – it looks good, also. I would do it again!

    Hey Jennifer,

    Sipping wine looks like a lot of fun! My husband cuts my hair for now and doing an ok job and he will do my roots tomorrow. I also have cut his hair for a long time now. I also took up ironing its part of my routine! It is actually kind of calming. Maybe I should sip wine and iron at the same time!
    I like the idea about the hair dye I will check that out. Love your blog and so glad you are doing well…prayers are the answer.

    Is been 19 months since coloring my hair and its the best decision I have made for myself in quite some time. Wish I would have done it 10 yrs. prior but my hairstylist kept telling me that I was too young! Well, guess I am stronger now because I now do things that I feel will be best for me no matter what others tell me! I colored my hair dark brunette for many years because I thought it was close to my natural color, but to be truthful when I look back at photos, I feel like it really was too dark for my skin tone. I can now go much longer in-between washing my hair, and I also do not lose all the hair in the shower like I did when I colored. And the bonus is, more $ in my pocket for the many other good things in my life…….healthy food, books, flowers and plants, etc.

    Glad to see you have the Hummer feeder that has a rest. They do like to rest while they drink the nectar/aka sugar water.
    I have the same feeder as you show. Home Depot usually has them every year.
    So glad people are interested and help the hummers by hanging feeders, as so much of wildlife habitat has been destroyed…especially in urban areas.

    Hair length & colour receives _so_ much attention it’s challenging. Your photos belie lack of volume, thinness or *gasp* greying. Had you not mentioned, i’d’ve not thought twice. Just noticed a stunning woman of confidence.

    Stopped coloring my hair mid-1980s as DH couldn’t stand the stench, salon or home. Newly wed bliss was paramount =}.

    It transitioned from ash brownette to silver with white & brown swirls. A co-worker’s son called me “Hugs”; finally figured out he meant Hershey’s chocolates! Great boost to periodically remember looking into the mirror wondering “what if”.

    I’m in Illinois where salons may open in June, at the earliest. My Madison Reed order arrives on Thursday (long backorder). I’ve never colored my hair at home and I may not do it now. I’m worried my stylist will have to undo mistakes. The few greys don’t bother me that much and where am I going anyway??

    My wonderful California hairstylist is struggling. Please may this be over sooner rather than later. I am letting my hair go. I was only getting some darker highlights among the grey, but now it is coming in white. I like that. It has been hot down south here, so I hope you’ll send us some of that rain for a day or two.

    I’ve used Madison Reed and it worked well. I quit coloring my hair early last year and now it’s a combo of shades of gray and a little streak of white. Making the decision to go gray was not easy but I’ve enjoyed not having to worry about my roots growing in! I actually get compliments on my hair color which is a nice confirmation that going gray was a good decision. Now, all I have to worry about it getting a good haircut! That’s challenging right now but so far, I’ve resisted trimming my hair myself. I’m hoping hair and nail salons will open soon so I can get a haircut, manicure/pedicure for my granddaughter’s wedding on May 30.

    I have gone conpletely grey now and stopped coloring about two years ago mainly because of cost and ! was sick of fighting the inevitable. Good decision for me over all. Now its looking really good because I have been using VIVISCAL-just sharing something good here ladies- and it has made a huge difference, my hair is thicker and fuller and looks healthy. Hair stylists always comment on it. You can get it at Target and I take the 2 pills a day and there is a coupon/discount in the box for next time. Another thing I do is use Sebastian dark oil or jojoba oil if i get a touch of the frizzly look and it smells nice too! Love the post Jennifer! Perfect for a rainy day.

    I think ash shades of hair are the ones that turn silver. I was surprised at how much I liked it when mine turned silver. I also think the silver hair is more flattering to my skin tone than coloring it would be. I try everything to make it shine. Purple shampoos used once a month really help there. Not much, just a touch but it adds shine. A great hairdresser is essential if you have fine hair that’s for sure. She says I have plenty of hair, it’s just fine.
    What is a good mask for helping even out skin tone?

      Same with me. I started the process of going grey about three years ago and have never looked back. I love my silver hair, also use blue shampoo and conditioner. I use them every time I shampoo and it gives my hair a slight hint of blue/purple.

    Your hair looks great pulled up. I don’t have bangs so my pulled up hair doesn’t look as good but still ok. I stopped coloring my hair and I’ve never looked back. I actually think my hair is in better shape now and it is fuller. I think the dye was damaging my hair. I still can’t wait to get back to my hair stylist for a cut. I enjoy your blog so much.

    Good morning! I’m so delighted that you now have resident hummingbirds enjoying the nectar. They are so much fun to watch. It’s interesting to hear how many women are embracing their grey hair since the Covid pandemic. My brunette hair is now sporting grey highlights. I can embrace it, but I will look forward to returning to my hair stylist to color my hair. I have missed this beauty regimen. I know hair color is very tricky and that is why I leave it to the professionals.

    I colored my own hair for years (and years, and years). I also had an itchy scalp, diagnosed psoriasis, and was pretty miserable with it. But I kept coloring. About 5 years ago, I started having my hair professionally colored and have never looked back. My hair is naturally (or was!) dirty blonde or light brown – but now it’s mostly gray. My hairdresser colors my hair by weaving the color in…and the best part is that the color never touches my scalp. The difference in my scalp health is 100% better. No itching, no psoriasis at all. Because the medium blonde colors she uses are very close in tone to my gray, I only need to have it colored every 10 weeks. It has been a real win!

      May 18, 2020 / 11:24 am

      Barbara, I started going to a new hairdresser a couple of months ago – she uses the same process with high and low lights. I didn’t realize it was called weaving. So glad she came up with the process, she also uses products without ammonia which previously irritated my scalp. I now can go up to 8 weeks between appointments. I do admire gray hair but it doesn’t do anything for my coloring.

    I stopped coloring my hair years ago. Then had a weak moment and had lowlights and highlights done. Way too dark. Cut off ultra short and kept it short till all the color was off. Never again for me. I was like you, highlights and color give it so much volume. But not worth it to me. Now I have grown out to a short bob. I understand how you felt when you got the color you didn’t like. I say do whatever makes you feel good about yourself. I am at the stage where easy is better😂

  24. Barb
    May 18, 2020 / 7:12 am

    I’ve always steered away from home coloring because I’ve seen some results on others that aren’t pretty! One acquaintance has dark hair that she wears parted in the middle, and the hair around the part is always much lighter than the rest of her dark hair. It’s been that way for years! I’m sure it’s a result of her skill level and/or product quality, but it’s always made me scared to self-color.

  25. Linda
    May 18, 2020 / 6:52 am

    I stopped coloring my hair almost 2 years ago just at the same time I decided to let my super short pixie grow out. The color part was easy mostly because I have light colored hair. Growing out the pixie, however, was frustrating. I found a hairdresser who didn’t fight my desire for a one length bob style & I scheduled my appointments 6 weeks apart. Since the virus I’ve acquired quite a collection of clips, ties & hair bands to cope with a longer length that I haven’t had since my thirties. I, like you, colored my hair for texture and volume. So I am shocked at the difference in my texture without color. I actually have more volume.

    I don’t color my hair. I turn 67 in a month and Mother Nature is blessing me with pure white highlights all over my head. It’s mixing well with the hairs that still have a reddish brown color. In fact, I have had many people ask me if I had them done and they like it!

    I used to have my hair bleached blonde. It was pretty but as I aged, just became too much trouble. The grow out period was awful but it’s all gone now and I am left with easy to maintain by myself hair. I get a cut maybe once a year and I maintain my bangs by myself.

    Now I never have to worry about my color growing out again. For me, natural was best. That isn’t always the case though, just depends on your coloring and what type of hair you are blessed with.

    I am lucky. My hair salon opened last Wednesday. I have an appointment this week. I was ready to color my own hair. I used to do it when I was younger. As I am older, it takes coloring every 5 weeks to look good. I don’t know what I would look like if I let it grey. The roots are very mousy color so I don’t think it would be pretty. I am brunette which I don’t think looks as good as a blonde turning grey. I was going to order Madison Reed a month ago but my color was back ordered. I would try that brand.

    After I had chemo I just let it be natural. It came in silver with dark undertones. People think I actually color it like that. years ago I colored it at home and it worked great until I needed it done every 3 weeks. Then my hairstylist colored it for years until cancer. I’ve kept it short ever since so I thought this would be a good chance to see what it looks like growing out. It’s HORRIBLE! Flat and straight, can’t wait to get it cut!

    I have almost always colored my own hair. In fact, I prefer the Preference/Excellence box colors to the few times I have had it colored at a salon; and it is so much cheaper. I also add my own brush on highlights. I bought a wide salon color brush and bowl at Sally’s- just like the ones the salons use, and mix the color in the bowl and work from there. I wear a paint t-shirt that is now stained brown and old work-out yoga pants, and move the bathroom rug aside so it doesn’t get stained. The dye will wash off my countertops and floor with a wet rag. The counters can’t be Formica, or it won’t wash off. My counter is faux marble and my flooring is porcelain, so it cleans up well. When I do the back of my head I just hold a mirror and perch myself on the edge of the counter so I can see what I’m doing. So there you go-easy peasy:). I completely understand why most women say no way and go to the salon, but I think it’s fun, and I love the results and the money I save! Good luck on your adventure; I’m sure you will look great!

    My sister was a hairstylist and many years ago taught me how to colour my hair as well as cut my bangs. I used to get it coloured at the salon twice a year and do the touch-ups myself, but now I do it myself most of the time. The caveat is that I buy the professional products and get advice on which colours to select.
    There is no word on when salons will open here, and when they do it will be over a month after that before I can get my haircut appointment due to the backlog of cancelled appointments. Hair accessories and hats for me for a while yet. 🙂

    During this COVID quarantine, I have colored my hair (for the first time) with Madison Reed products. I am very pleased with the quality of the products. The hair color is not harsh on the hair, and a beautiful rich color. I also liked the shampoo and conditioner single use they sent for color treated hair. My only problem in coloring my hair myself, is getting to all the roots on the back of my head. Good luck with coloring your hair!

    Pre Covid19, I was having my hair colored and cut at a salon. I didn’t do a full overall color, just the root touch up. So now I have been doing this same process at home. I too trimmed my bangs and did ok with that. I like the non structured hair cut that has some movement and the versatility of being able to clip it up on those days when it’s breezy and warm.
    You look so nice with your hair pulled up with a clip and the soft bangs and wispy side hair. A lot of us are dealing with thinning hair and hair that needs help maintaining volume and texture. This look offers a great alternative to our “bad hair days”. Lol
    Stay well, be kind and remain grateful!

      Yes, my stylist prepared and delivered kits to several clients which included everything needed to touch up color, including specific instructions. Everythng was disposable except the brush. I will return that to her when I go back. It was easy for me and worked well. You can do it yourself, the only challenge being finding the right color.

    If you decide to try Madison Reed, please let us know how you like it. I’m in PA where the salons have been closed since mid-March, and most likely will be closed for weeks to come. I vacillate between letting the gray grow all the way out, or touching up my roots in the interim to remain a blond. Madison Reed is one of the options I’ve considered until the salons open. Another option I’ve read about is Concihairge (https://www.concihairge.com/). They do a Zoom color consultation after which they send you a color kit. You an even book another Zoom appointment so they can walk you through the color application. I haven’t tried it but it’s tempting!

    I have colored my own hair for years, L’Oréal. Always was happy. Just recently I started having my stylist color my hair, only because I decided I wanted to be pampered. I will cut my bangs and have a thinning shears but that’s the extent of it. What I don’t do for myself is the home facial things. I need to start !

    I found that esalon.com does a great job, both in customer service and the product. (I am not an employee.) I suggested a color and they made a better selection looking at my photo. The color is vibrant and lasts. I use a red, which usually fades quickly in any hair color line, but the faded color is still pretty. It is fun to do at home because the results are beautiful. I find the texture is better than the boxes from stores.

    When much younger, I would henna my hair without problems. However, when many years later, I did my own hair using a box colour it was a disaster and ended up with two tones, the roots were much lightenthan the ends and the back of my hair looked blocky. Luckily, our hair salons have never closed during the coronavirus lockdown, so I am off to get my hair done tomorrow morning. There are you tube videos on how to apply your own hair colour – so good luck Jennifer.

    I have been coloring my hair for over 15 years…..along with highlighting it. It always turns out nice. And about 3 weeks ago, I cut it. Yes my hair is short and have cut it in the past but knowing this time my salon would not open for over 2 months, I went for it! Since my hair is thick and has wave/body it is very forgiving not showing too many mistakes! Lol

    Blessings

    Fifty years ago I colored my own hair with Clairol NicenEasy. I was so pleased to find out that it’s still available and I did a pretty good job. The best thing they have added to the line is Root Touch Up. Words to the wise: do this naked, with plenty of newspapers on the bathroom floor. Wear the gloves that come in the box
