Have you ever had that moment when you look in the mirror and you are like “What has happened to all of my hair?” I used to have three times more hair than I do now. I think there are numerous things contributing to my loss of hair, the main reason being my overactive thyroid! Ugh. Another contributing factor is I’m under way too much stress these days and the third is probably just the natural aging process…sigh. Whatever the factor, I have been experiencing a double whammy with the new appearance of sporadic gray hairs!!! Ladies, when it rains it pours. I must admit I’m quite blessed when it comes to the gray department as I have not had to color my hair in over 15 years. I knew the day would come where I would HAVE to spend hundreds of dollars every six weeks and color my hair, but up until now, I literally would only occasionally get one or two gray hairs. Lately I’ve been getting 5 to 10. I’m not at the point where I need to color my hair but I also need to stop pulling out those random gray hairs!
On a recent trip to my beloved Sephora, I stumbled across a product at the checkout line. It was a product called Madison Reed Root Touch Up. I quickly snatched it up but decided to not purchase it at that time since it was $30 and virtually looked like eyeshadow (which has been my secret weapon for covering my thinning hair at the hairline for the past few months). So when I got home, I couldn’t stop thinking about this product. I started to do a bit of research and quickly realized I NEEDED this product in my life.
A few days later I returned to my local Sephora and snatched this little gem up. Since my hair is pretty dark, I bought the Dark Brown color which for reference is the second to the darkest color in the line of 7 shades. The packaging is quite impressive and the compact even comes with it’s own pouch, The application is a breeze as well. I apply mine at the hairline and along my part and on the scalp in the area where my hair is thinning. It covers the few grays I have beautifully and stays put. It doesn’t even transfer on my pillowcase at night. It makes my hair seem so much fuller too! It’s amazing what a little trickery can do. So in the meantime while I’m waiting for my supplements to kick back in and my thyroid to settle down, I’ve found the perfect quick fix for when my hair is looking less than stellar.
