Ask Alzy: Summer Time Blues

Yesterday on our Facebook page , we asked about your hair challenges. Here is what our fans had to say:

For the next three weeks, we'll be answering these lovely ladies questions. First up:

 The gray in my hair grow out too fast, and I really like to wear it long. But during the summer all I ever do is put it in a pony. Suggestions for how to wear longer hair in the summer, without just putting a pony on it and tricks to get the gray at bay, until I get to the salon. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Dear Summer Time Blues,

They make hair mascara in 3 colors that you can put on your part line and around the face. It washes out with shampoo, so it will have to be reapplied on a regular basis. However, it has a wax base so do not use it on the day you get your hair fixed up at the salon because it will resist the color.

Pony's aren't bad, but they do get old! Simple braids, buns, or headbands can be a fun way to spruce it up. You can always call the salon and see about setting up an appointment with a stylist for a lesson on a few quick ways to wear your hair and braiding techniques!  

Hope this helps!

As always,

  1. Thanks for the ideas. I especially like the one to come in and get a professional to show you how to do some quick options for your hair other than just the typical ponytail pull up.


Thank you!
