50 shades of grey

At the moment due to being a snow fearing wimp I’ve been watching a bit more TV than usual. One advert in particular has been popping up regularly, the one for “Just for men – Auto Stop”. This wonderful hair dye only takes on average 10 minutes and stops automatically when it gets to the correct shade that suits the lucky man using it.

I can’t help but wonder what the difference is between men’s and women’s hair.

Women have to leave on hair dye for at least 45 minutes, (nearly an hour if roots are as grey as mine!), before that we have to browse hundreds of different brands and shades with names such as golden ash brown, warm chestnut, and light golden auburn hoping to match as closely as possible to our original hair colour, (that I don’t really remember). During the development process we have to keep anxiously checking that the colour is as expected not bright red or green, too light or too dark. Many a time I’ve ended up resembling Morticia because I’ve chosen a shade just a little too dark that looked ok on the expected colour result picture on the back of the box.

Men on the other hand can just pick up one box that says dark, mid or light brown and black, slap it on and it’s all done for them!

Just another one of life’s great ponderables.
