Will be riding along with my husband once he goes thru training. My question is, how do you ladies keep up your hair color on the road? I'm not a "salon" type of gal & have always done my coloring at home. Don't know how to work that out living in a semi. Should I just let it go grey & be done with it? I'm closing in on 50 so there's probably a LOT of grey to keep covered. Thanks ladies 😊

Hi, I haven't done any trucking yet but I do home colored hair. So I may be qualified to answer. I'm pretty sure mine would be a mousey brown with grey coming in if I stopped. So I thought about highlights or frosting. Maybe wouldn't have to do it so often. And watching the you tube videos the bathrooms are very accommodating and you have it as long as you need it. I might still chop mine all off. It's getting in my food.

I use Clairol Root Touch up, it only takes 10 min. It will match any color you may be using. Super easy quick fix and it wont wash out.

I've always gotten my hair colored at a teaching school...it's not as cheap as box color, but a lot cheaper than at a salon and if the student messes it up, they (usually an instructor) will fix it at no extra cost. If you know when you're going to be stuck somewhere for a research, you could Google cosmetology schools in that area. I just hit 41 and these days, I just throw a bandana on :)

Welp. I did it. Got it chopped off. Still have a hard time looking in the mirror but I didn't consider the extra time I have now. An extra hour of sleep. Just shower and shake. And it's dry before I get to work. I was wondering how to do those 5 minute showers I see on the internet (probably California) when it took more than 10 minutes just to do my hair. I'm finally free.

Yup, Nancy - shower & shake is awesome! My hair is finally long enough that I can pull it back into a ponytail all the time. It's the in-between length that seems to be the most high-maintenance.

Love it!!!! And will most likely do the same. It's short now, but I color and highlight almost totally grey.

Shave it! Best thing ever!

Nope. Lol. I color and my hair is Long. I like it long. If you can only drive 14 or so hours a day, that'll leave me time once every month or two to color it. Has to be some way to work it out! I intend to find it!
