Nadia Sawalha took to Instagram to share a hilarious snap of her getting her hair dyed yesterday morning.

The TV presenter, who is always very open about her personal day-to-day life, shared a funny post to Instagram of a very private moment at the hairdressers.

The 54-year-old mum-of-two (opens in new tab) shared a make-up free selfie pulling a funny face as she waited for hair dye to work its magic during her hairdresser’s appointment on Thursday morning – just two hours before the airing of that day's episode of Loose Women.

Alongside the amusing photo, Nadia wrote: Now THAT'S a bad hair day! For anyone who saw me on @loosewomen today, this is what I looked like two hours before we went LIVE - ha ha ha.’

She continued: ‘I had left my roots for three months and they were totally white !! Seriously thinking of letting it go fully white !! Will you ever stop dying your hair ? Could you go fully grey ?? #gogrey #greyhair #badhairday #greyhairdontcare #greyhaircolor #lookingrough #reallife #reallife #loosewomen.’

The very honest post received was soon flooded with replies from friends and followers, with many praising Nadia for her honesty and saying she should embrace her ageing locks.

One said: ‘This photo is bloody fabulous! 👏❤️I have long curly hair and I’m fully grey. My first grey appeared when I was 17 😮 I’m not ready to go fully grey yet and I’m currently 39. I have my roots done every 21 days, but they could be done every 14 🤯.’

Another added: ‘A huge part of it is about growing old gracefully. Finding beauty in things like grey hair in women, men are described as distinguished or silver foxes, so why don't we get the same privilege?’

Nadia was seen later on the show with her new curly locks dressed in a navy wrap dress.

Nadia shared an inspirational Instagram post discussing her cellulite as she wore a swimming costume, to encourage other women to embrace their bodies.

And, Nadia continuing to show off her hilarious side recently took to Instagram to share a very relatable rant with husband Mark (opens in new tab) about his lack of help when it comes to cleaning around the house.

Nadia is always very honesty about her daily life, family life and relationship problems on her social media platforms - and it's great to see she continues to inspire women to be proud of their bodies.
