    I’m excited about your blog! I’m 57 and finally attempting to go natural. I know very few people who are, so I intend to read your blog for advice and help. Thanks so much.

    Just come across your blog. I’m 4 months into transition to grey at 58 years old. I have long hair and I’m just going with it. Can I ask , How far into transition is your photo? Love the blog

    1. Hi Tanya, Thanks for your message. This photo was taken about 12 months into my transition. I have now had a haircut at 18 months and I am now fully transitioned. Well done on your journey so far. For me, it started to get easier the further on I went. Yes, going shorter is not an option for many people, particularly those with thick hair like us. Do stay in touch. Mel

    Thank you for the advice! What do you mean by blue shampoo? Are you referring to blue shampoos such as the popular dandruff shampoos?

    1. Hi Sandy, the blue shampoo I am referring to is special shampoo which is marketed for blonde or silver/grey hair. It is usually blue or purple in colour as this counteracts any yellowing caused by build up etc that discolour grey hair, therefore brightening up the colour. Hope that helps. Mel 🙂

    Hey Ladies! So, my gray hair started at 16… and I am now in my 30s and ready to embrace the silver! I have been letting it grow out naturally for about 5+ months now and have pretty much kept the same shampoo/conditioner habits. However, my grays are looking a little scraggly! I only wash my hair once every week or two, its very long and doesn’t really get greasy (I don’t use products – MAYBE hairspray once in a blue moon). I just really want something to help with the frizz and keep my hair healthy as it grows in… but I am looking for some shampoo/conditioner that is totally organic and natural – which, surprisingly is a real hard thing to look up on the internet! Any suggestions?

    1. Hi Jessica, there are many hair products out there to choose from but I’m not sure about any organic ones as I don’t use any. I use Arbonne products. Although they are not organic they are natural and botanically based and have no nasties and I find their Pure Vibrance range very nourishing for my grey hair. They also have a Hairspray in the same range which I find very good. If you’d like more information about this range, please email me at hello@ and I can help you further. Thank you for sharing your story and well done for your 5+ months of transition to your new authentic hair colour. Mel 🙂

    which “blue” shampoo have you found that doesn’t have any cones in it?

    Thank you for this! I’ve been going gray since I was 14, I just turned 36 and I’m about 65-70% gray now! I love it, but I have noticed an increase in frizz and dryness, especially after my baby. Finding a solution to help with what to do was getting aggravating though. I can’t wait to try this out and watch my gray get even sexier!

    Hi! Thanks for this. I started letting the greys out a year ago. My fave shampoo is Daddy-O from I use a coconut oil conditioner (I forget the brand) and then I apply lush’s R&B leave in conditioner. I’ve noticed an improvement in my hair fast!
