You don’t reach your thirties and beyond without picking up some wisdom along the way. I’m not as wise as my mama, for instance, but I would like to think that today’s Kristin knows a bit more than that twenty-something girl of days past. So, I would have to say that I am perfectly at ease with where I am at in this stage of the game. The road that brought me to my husband, children and a career that I love has been windy, but wonderful. That being said, while I don’t mind looking my age, I certainly do not want to look any older. Bwah!
And that is why I cover up my gray hair. My healthy crop of gray is a genetic gift. My mom was 75% gray before she was thirty and her grandmother was snow white at the same age. So, basically my original brunette mane didn’t stand a chance. Haha! It actually doesn’t bother me too much. My gray hair has given me an excuse to play around with my color. That’s always fun!
Plus, lightening up the brown a bit has made me look younger I think. That and full gray coverage. Just sayin’. Going a shade lighter is always a good tip when you’re trying to cover up your gray. And permanent color is best for full gray coverage. Enter Zotos Professional AGEbeautiful anti-aging Liqui-Crème hair color, my new best friend…I easily found her at my local Sally Beauty Supply store by the way. Woot!
How to Easily Cover Up Gray Hair
As we age, our hair’s appearance can make us appear older as much as our skin can. With 5 signs of aging that include loss of(1) volume, (2) manageability, (3) shine, (4) color, (5) moisture, we have to stay on top of our anti-aging battle. Zotos can help us do that! Did you know that AGEbeautiful anti-aging hair color is the first hair color developed to fight all 5 signs of aging?
It also contains melanin, keratin peptide, silk protein, vitamin E, and a patented conditioning. The unique formula penetrates deeply and absorbs quickly to deliver beautiful rich color. Hair feels instantly fuller, silkier and radiates shine. And nothing looks more youthful than a full mane of bouncy, shiny hair sans grays of course! If you have really stubborn grays, go for the Ultimate Coverage series! Another little tip…
Now I typically head to my hair stylist for my color, but she recently got sick, which happens. Unfortunately, it happened right before I headed out for a big trip and she wasn’t able to rebook me for quite a while. There was no way my roots would wait, so I decided to try out at home color for the first time. I had no idea what I was in for, but thanks to the Zotos AGEbeautiful line, the at home color process is surprisingly simple. Like anyone who has never colored her hair herself, I was worried that the application requirements would be beyond my skill set, but I worried for no reason! I saved time AND money. As you can see, my grays are GONE! Score!
The great thing about this formula is that it’s creamy enough to use a bowl and brush, but it also works in a bottle. So you can use whatever application method you feel comfortable with. It’s all about personal preference. Just take it nice and slow and you’ll be fine. I’ll spare you the shot of all the color applied. I’ve looked prettier. Let’s just say that. Haha! But I’ll take a few minutes of looking rough for results like this! And, as you can see, those gray roots are GONE!

All I have to do before I leave the house for an event is give it a blow dry and curl the ends. Easy peasy! As you can probably guess after reading this, I’m is ALL about easy!
