I am CONSTANTLY coloring my hair. Right now it's short enough that most of it is my regular color, but the bit of length up top is a faded red. I'm actually headed to the store later today to buy a nice chestnut brown. That'll be a change for me since I usually go red.

Me too, Tiamet2! I got my first grey hair when I was 14 years old.
If you want to do something temporary, you can do a big streak of purple in your hair--something that washes out. You just spray it on. I helped my pal do it. I placed a paper towel under the batch of hair to be sprayed. It turned out really pretty!
I color my hair to cover the gray. I'm almost all white and have been for a while. I started to grey in my 20's.
I've always colored my hair the same (or close) the color it was naturally which is dark brown but I'd love to do something a little wild, crazy, fashionable and maybe younger but I don't know what that would be.
I used to have the coloring done in a salon but I started doing it myself for budget reasons.

I've only had it dyed once, ever. Last year I had a few sections of hair that got way too bleached out by the sun and they didn't match the rest of my head, so I had a sort of color correction done. The stylisted used an organic dye with three different shades and foils. It turned out great and grew out looking very natural.
Oh, sometimes I do temporary dye in a dark brown for Halloween--the kind that washes right out. Oddly, it seems to look natural on me too, which is odd since I think of myself as being very fair.
I would love to go red, but I am not brave enough. I love the color of the main character's hair in the movie Elizabeth.
I'm very lucky to be 37 and not have any grey hair. My dad was about 65 before he started to go grey, so I am hoping that I have inherited those genes.
I am constantly changing my hair! Either I'm cutting it or growing it out or finding new ways to wear it or coloring it! Actually, when I'm trying to grow my hair out I'll color it just to switch things up so I'm not as tempted to cut it! I've been about 10 shades of red, 20 shades of brown/black, blonde, and kool aid colors. Hair is just FUN!
If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.
I have always been blond, from birth to now. Though I help nature, now, because I think my natural hair is too mousie with grey, not sure, though, I never let it grow out enough, lol. I go darker in the winter, I think light blond in the winter screams that you color it!
