Do you color your hair?

I color my hair usually a brown but I have done reds & blonde. I need to color it again. I was looking at my hair in the mirror and my roots are white. A really pretty white. I am 63 yrs old. I never wanted gray but white is different. What would you do? And What DO you do?

  • i do color. i've colored my hair for the fun of it, every color of the spectrum it seems, since age 14. i'm 42 now, and its become a 'cover the gray' act, now. i'm about 20%gray, and of course, the majority is up front, in the hairline, so its an every 4wk-job.
    i don't see 'going gray' as my choice; i'll color my hair until i no longer no what my name is!

  • usually you can let it grow out... what I am doing is high and low lights - I want to cover the gray. To go to your "natural" color you could have it lightened or stripped. Stripping is really damaging though.

  • Yes, I love getting my hair colored. I wish I didn't love it though, it's pretty damaging.

  • I have colored my hair since I was sixteen, I am now going to let the gray show. I am proud of every gray hair my kids gave me, lol

  • i dye my hair and as i am only 19 i dye it everytime my roots come thru but if its your natural colour you are looking for they sell hair strippers in super drug that takes all excess dye away and brings your natural colour back xx

  • hahahaha do i ever! i'm naturally a brunette, but ever since i started dyeing my hair (at 13) i've been every color from platinum blonde to jet black (black was my fave; i rocked it for about 10 years). these days it's my natural color; i just dye it to cover the gray hair that's beginning to grow in.
