Hope it turns out well for you.

Now me, I am proud of every gray hair I have. I feel I have earned every last one, plus since I have had a retreating hairline since my mid teens I am thrilled to still have enough hair left to turn gray. smilewinkgrin

So, how did it come out??? And most important, do you like the results??? Genetically speaking, the women in my biological family don't get much gray hair and it's very late in life if/when they do. Luckily I'm following suit. But there are some here and there and mostly around my face so they are more obvious. So...several years ago I decided that if I put a very light frost on my hair it would disguise the gray ones...and it does a great job of it too. I don't do huge bunches or streaks, just lightly al over so it looks like I've been in the sun all summer and it covers most all of the gray.

Waiting to hear from Me...

Rhonda,
Gee, with Halloween around the corner, you could have some fun with this one! ;-)

My hair is sort of multiple colors; it's long and so mostly looks salt & pepper, but if I put it up underneath there's hardly any grey and it's my old dark brown with auburn highlights. Makes it look like I've colored parts of my hair, but the wrong parts! LOL

Well, I wish there was some way to show you all what my hair looks like before I colored it...I have naturally brown very curly hair about down past my shoulders....then, from coloring it a Dark Auburn over the years it seems that it can't go back to brown anymore...so I color it auburn usually...
 
But I am wanting something different..so I bought a color called "Crushed Garnet" Rich Mahogany...Loreal Feria...no plug intended..
 
So, it will lighten up, just like you said...but it looks better....NO MORE GRAYS!!!!!
 
PaLady, I'd like to color it a few colors...not just for Halloween, but just to feel younger..ya know?
 
Thanks for letting me talk about something other then P A I N

When my hair starts growing out I call it my skunk stripe.  I hate the skunk stripe but put up with it for awhile cause I think it is hard on the hair to color too often.  I have found that I prefer Perfect 10 haircolor.  You only have to leave it in the hair for 10 minutes and it doesn't fade as fast as some.  Also, excellent gray coverage.  Now I sound like a commercial.  I think I am a dark golden brown or something like that.

Your right it is nice to discuss something besides pain.

I use temporary hair color so I don't have to worry about roots. It washes out gradually so it's not as obvious. When I notice some gray, I do it again.
