I finally got my hair cut today. I noticed a whole ot of grey/silver hair on the floor after the cutting! BUT at least I have a full head of hair as my brother and my two cousins are almost bald. My Mom's brother has a head full of hair but he has been colouring it since he was in his late 30's. It is funny to see him at family gathers together because his hair goes between black, to brown, to red depending on his last colouring. I will not color my hair knowing once you start you have to do it consistently and when it is done incompetently you look funny as heck like my Uncle Bill!

    Yeah, I have some gray hair too but you can't tell very much because it blends with the highlights.

    I began to lose my hair a long time ago. But, I don't care. I'm not one of those who frequents the wig and toupee shops lol. What happens, happens. Just enjoy life.

Have a wonderful Monday!

    That's funny about the hair. My mother was like that before she gave up. One mistake ended up as deep purple. I'm afraid I couldn't stop laughing. emoticon

True it needs to be dyed competently or not at all. A full head of hair is a lucky thing, whatever the (natural) color. emoticon emoticon

    Never colored mine, never going to. I EARNED every single one of those gray hairs!! I'm with you, I think most people look funny with their dyed hair-like who do they think they are kidding?? and I really don't like it when they change the color so often either. Vanity!!

I thank God for the thick hair that He gave me and just let it do it's thing. It's good healthy hair because of not coloring, perming and using chemicals and hot appliances on it. It's waist length and I just put it in a pony tail or a braid or wrap it up on top of my head in a bun with 3 big chignon pins. I'm too cheap and too lazy to get it cut short as it grows so fast I end up having to get it cut every 4 weeks to keep the shape. I just get out the scissors and give it a trim when it feels too long or is looking raggedy around the ends. My sisters spend thousands on styling and the products and appliances and don't have "good hair". I think after all these years they may have figured out I was right all along.

    I know both men and women that color their hair and yes you must maintain. I color my own, my daughter and I color my friends hair when I visit TN. It's really not all that difficult to do. If you leave it on for 1/2 hr and wash it out in the shower it's really not bad. I color mine in front of a mirror and my arms get tired but it's something I do to pamper myself and it looks good.
I wonder if your uncle doesn't leave it on long enough.

    I color my hair a dark blond which I was as a child. :) Keeping gray hair a deeper color is time consuming!! :)

    Dying hair is a pain in the butt. I've been doing it since I was 14. And yeah, you can definitely get some interesting results if you don't do it well.

Hope you had a great Sunday!

    I have been coloring my hair since my mid 20's when I started going gray. It runs in my family. I am not a vain person but I refuse to be gray headed before I am 60! emoticon
