Product Description

Product Description

After I announced my decision to stop colouring my hair many women approached me saying how they wished they could do the same but that they just didn’t dare to.

I began to ponder how many women actually feel this way? How many women are pretending that they are ok with the endless colouring, the time, the money, and the chemicals? I know many women who love colouring their hair but I guarantee you I know more women who wish they could stop.

So how do you dare to stop colouring your hair? Where do you start? How do you cope with the negative comments of others? How do you find the confidence within you to take this journey? You can find those questions and more answered in the book

Ok, so I am obviously one of those women who has decided to stop dying her hair. I'm at the 2 1/2 month mark and thought it would be nice to read a book written by a woman who had already gone through the process, for some tips and hair product advice as well. So, I asked my son if I could have a copy of this book for my birthday present which was 3 days after Christmas.

I must say, I have just really skimmed through it, as instead of being the kind of book I'd hoped, it's main theme is more to do with self-confidence and the self-confidence experience of the author herself. This could have been a book based on any subject where self-confidence is needed in life and it left me feeling somewhat disappointed in its content. I don't lack self-confidence as once I make my mind up to do something I usually stick to it with steely determination.

In my opinion, if you are looking for a self-help book, then this is the book to read, on the other hand, if you're looking for a book about the process of practically going through the grey transition, before and after photos, transition photos, hair product suggestions etc., this is not the book to read.

Wish I'd asked my son to get me one of the other books I'd browsed on here now. Oh well, we all live and learn!

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful book 15 Sep 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Kama Frankling has done something that should be unremarkable but is, in today's society, rather unusual. Youthful, vibrant and professional, she made the decision to stop dyeing her hair and embraced the process. Here, she tells us why going grey turned out to be a wonderful journey to increased confidence. If you are at all interested in making the same journey, read this book. But it is much more than a book about going grey. This is also a clearly written, gentle guide to becoming more confident. Easy to read, easy to grasp and easy to put into practice. Most of us would like to be more confident, and many, I guess, are mystified by confidence - where it comes from, why it disappears, how to get it. The answers are here.

Having gone through the process of growing out hair dye and embracing my natural colour I know how helpful it is to have the support of like minded people. The media and the beauty industry have been brain washing us for years, convincing us that it is somehow 'wrong' to be our natural selves. In choosing to grow out our hair we can face a lot of negativity from friends and family. Kama Frankling's book gives advice on dealing with negative comments and learning to feel confident in being authentic. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to go grey but is feeling apprehensive about the process.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREYt Stuff! 29 Nov 2013

What a fantastic book! I am just about to grow in my grey now I am in my 40s.

My reasons? Health and the increasing anxieties I have around pouring toxic chemicals on my head every 2 weeks in an effort to keep my white badger stripe at bay. It seems every other day I read about other poor woman (sometimes a man) who has been hospitalised with PPD-allergy. It's terrifying. Add to that, I have an autoimmune disease, which surely hasn't been helped by pouring chemicals on my head for around 25 years. I don't know if it's my imagination, but last time I did my hair I am sure my scalp felt tighter, hotter - something was different, I'm sure. Couldn't quite put my finger on it, but was it the warning sign of allergy developing? Whatever the reason, I find I am very anxious pre, during and post-colouring now. I simply cannot do this any longer.

I have been having so much fun on the internet discovering how "going grey" is trending right now. Kama's book is so understanding and encouraging. It's particularly helpful to my mind because she says she packed in the dye ostensibly because of a bad allergic reaction she had. So it's not like she was exactly "ready to be grey" at the time she tried it and therefore totally understands the misgivings and fear that may surround a decision to put down that dye bottle. It's a huge step for most of us.

I can honestly say that if a 100% SAFE permanent dye that would cover grey was invented tomorrow I'd probably continue dyeing. But let's face it, there is no such thing and unlikely to be in my lifetime. I've already had a try at one 100% organic product which didn't work at all at coverage. Hennas can have reactions too and you have to be SURE they are PPD-free.
