 I color.  I took a photo of me as a kid (about 3 years old) to my stylist and she did a fabulous job of matching the blonde.  I can't imagine going back.

demi permanent, deposit only low level 0, 5 or 10 volume, keeps my hair shiny and soft. I only use Redken.

that's the style it's called the peek boo or ombre...  :)

Quoting 1kidmomajm:

I did the wash in stuff and each time it lasted about 3 months as opposed to 10 washes. But maintaining it became a pain. It didnt' cover the gray as much as permanant color may. I just don't have the time or money to keep up. But it was fun for a year or two. But now I have this light on the bottom darker on top thing to grow out!

Color definitely.  I know I do and it makes me feel better. (Looks better too)

I think It's a personal decision. I personally color my hair & can't imagine ever stopping. As long as you feel beautiful! That's all that matters!

So you don't pluck your eyebrows, shave your unwanted hair or wear a bra? Isn't that too how God created you?

Ridiculous.

get an awesome updated haircut. and splurge on some hair products that are known to work. top of the line stuff. not that good stuff has to cost much. but heck one splurge in your lifetime is well deserved.

God gave my mom the most loveliest of silver when herhair turned! However God gave me 50 shades of ugly gray, it sticks straight up and i feel like alfalfa on the our gang team! So i use the root touch up every other 6 weeks and sometimes sooner as it comes out of now where! and alternate that with the permante dye i guess i think that is a little easier on my hair, i had some bald spots from lupus so i try to go easy on my hair i have left!
