An Inch of Gray, A Dearth of Friends?

Seems like an inch of gray may not be the way to go. Is this why my phone hasn't been ringing lately? Check out this Clairol ad from 1944 and see why.

I am addicted to Nice 'N Easy - have been for almost 20 years. I use it now to cover my brown roots but before long I'll be using it for gray, I guess!

Wow, that's SO crazy and funny! Thanks for a blast from the past.

I'm posting my Friday confession here on your gray hair post. I saw a mom friend at daughter's school today that I had not seen in a while. She has a beautiful blonde bob and is always perfectly coifed. But not so today... she had not an inch of gray, but about three inches of gray. Dark brown hair with 50% gray, and the rest of the bob in beautiful blonde. I couldn't stop staring. I felt like a heel, but I'd never seen her with a hair of place before, much less a reverse skunk stripe. She would crack up if she saw this ad.
