I've been dyeing my hair a lighter shade of blonde since my teens but recently I noticed that I'm getting really gray and my hair is sort of two toned with very light ash blonde at the roots and top of my hair and darker blonde on the bottom few inches. I only have shoulder length hair so it's pretty noticeable that my hair looks like it's half gray and half blonde!
The top blonde is so ashen it might as well be gray and the bottom part is a bit brassy. I'm only 29, so I really don't want to go natural gray yet. I'm going to try a new salon but I don't know what to tell the colorist. Do I want to just go with the gray roots and dye my hair a lighter ash blonde and hope it takes at the ends of my hair too or try to dye it a little darker blonde, to a color I'd prefer but might be harder to maintain because of all the gray?
