Hi, ladies! I'm new to this group. At 43, I have black hair with maybe 5-10% silver coming in all on top and in back. For a few years I was dyeing it religiously, and then I started to think ... I could solve this tiny problem now or create a big problem for myself 10 years from now when I'm 50% gray and it's harder to grow out! So I've been dye free about 10 months and it looks a little weird, but I can live with it. I think it'll look nicer as there's more gray.
Has anyone ever done fine silver highlights in black hair? That's what I'd kind of like to do -- to get more variation toward the front, and because I think it could look funky in a good way. Bt I'm pretty sure my guy at Deva wouldn't do it. (I always wanted some blonde highlights and he always said no, it would damage the hair too much.)
Anyway, if you've tried it, I'd love to hear!
