Coloring your hair

Do you color your hair?  My Boss at work wants to color her hair, but she isnt sure she wants to make it a constant commitment.  She isnt sure though if she likes the gray.   So do you color your hair, and if so is it to hide the gray or to just be different.

I have never colored my hair. My family holds back their gray for a long time. When it starts though, I already said I will dye mine gray or silver, whichever I get. My gram & aunt got a silver. My mom got a gray. :)

I do color my hair at home, myself. Not to cover the gray but because having blond hair makes me happy.

 Do you think you will get gray hair since you are a redhead?  I am a redhead too.  My sister still has no gray hair at 59 and also a redhead.  I guess eventually the hair color will turn, but I am leaving it alone.  I have another sister who is blonde, and now gray at 58.  She had chosen to color over the gray for years.  She goes to the salon every few weeks.  Not for me!

I don't know. Since I am not like a full "ginger", it could. But since I do have the red, it might not come, or not til real late. My mom didn't go grey until mid 60's and my gram was the same. They don't show the red at all. So I have good gene's with it.

I color mine, I have since I was about 30.  It started out as a color change, but it's become necessary to cover the gray.  Big time!

 I have had to dye my gray since I was 29.  I just do my natural color with a few highlights to brighten it.  I went through chemo and lost all my hair.  When it grew back it was dull and the highlights help to brighten it up a bit.
