The holidays are here and there's so much to do. There are places to go and parties to attend. It gets really busy, doesn't it? Not to mention seeing your friends and family that you haven't seen all year. I want to make sure that I look my best.



I check my closet and find the perfect holiday outfit, matching purse and accessories. Everything is looking great and I am all ready for a fun holiday night out but wait. I take another glance in the mirror and see that those pesky gray hairs have returned. Ugh.

It really has been a long time since I colored my hair and I am overdue for a new look. But who has time to head to the salon during this busy season?  Well you know me, this girl is taking matters into her own hands, literally. I'm going to update my look with a fresh new hair color right at home. This time, I'm trying something different. Something that will help get rid of the grays and help my hair look good.



I decided to give Zotos AgeBeautiful Anti-aging Hair Color a try. AgeBeautful helps me fight the signs of aging and color my hair like a pro right in the comfort of my own home.

I headed to my local Sally Beauty store and went with Zotos Professional AGEbeautiful Liqui-Crème anti-aging hair color in 1N which is Jet Black along with Zotos Professional AGEbeautiful 20 volume developer which is the usual choice.



Why Choose AgeBeautiful?

As we get older we may notice the signs of aging on our skin and face. Our eyes may have a few wrinkles here in there but did you know but most of us don't think about our hair?

As we age our hair shows the effects. It loses:

  • Volume
  • Manageability
  • Shine
  • Color
  • and Moisture

How to Apply Zotos Age Beautiful Anti-aging Hair Color This is my first time using hair color with a separate developer and it was really is easy to use. The mixing ratio is 1 to 1 and that means you mix 1 ounce of developer for 1 ounce of color.



I chose to purchase an applicator bottle to apply my hair color. Make sure you use gloves and an old t-shirt to keep your clothes from getting ruined. It's also helpful to apply petroleum jelly around your hairline and ears to keep your skin from getting stained.



Simply squeeze the creme into the bottle with the developer and shake to mix.




Before I dyed my hair. You can see the grey hairs along the edged of my hairline, especially at my side part. (For those that don't know, the white hair in the back is my birthmark and I don't dye that hair ever.)




The results were beautiful black curls with fewer signs of grey and aging.
