I am so bored with my hair right now, but I can't change it because I'm flat broke. Dying my hair is exciting to me! What about you, do you change it up? Cover greys? Or just keep it natural?

i keep my hair natural but sometimes my wife dyes it. after the color runs out for a month or so then i just keep it again on the natural side. my wife dyes her hair or sometimes go to the saloon and let then dye her hair. her family has this line that their hair grows gray easily so she dyes it. but not to cover the gray she dyes it with highlights if thats waht you call it. har har har

funny for you but i call that trust. i know my wife only wants the best for me so i just let her do what she wants. i have changed a lot on appearance since the first day i live dwith my wife so there is nothing for me to worry. she did not color or dye my hair again for the reason that my hair is slowly vanishing.... its hereditary with my family, father side. so she is thinking that the dye might be harmful for my slomly vanishing hair and for my peeping scalp. har har har.

No, not yet, because I just want my hair to be natural. Some of my friends are dyeing their hair, I am thinking about it, but not now, I am not yet, ready.LOL!

Don't touch it then, keep it as healthy as you can for a while! haha. Once you color it once, you won't want to stop!

No, I don't... but I'm hardly considering to do so, at least in just a part. I'm bored too of my hair color, so I asked my friend's mother -who owns a beauty shop- to dye my bangs. Tomorrow is the big day, and I hope (REALLY hope) it looks good. Happy MyLotting and have a nice day! Xp

Yes, I do dye my hair. I changed my hair color about two to three years ago. And I really love my color. I changed my color because I was tired of my natural hair color. It does sometimes get annoying to always have to dye my hair and such every few weeks, but that's how it is, when you dye your hair and wish to maintain that hair color.

Yeah it's a pain in the butt. But at least your hair gets super smooth and shiny for a couple days when you dye it again!

I dye these little bit of grays out. I use the same color as my hair is already. I don't pay more than $5.00 for the color. It lasts a long time as well.

That's great, only five bucks? I heard covering up grays is hard, so they charge extra at the salon. I didn't know the boxes work.

I've got quite a bit of grey now. I agreed to cover up the grey until my daughter left home (she found it embarrassing when the grey started showing because her friends' mothers all dyed theirs). Now she has left, and I've left my hair natural - there is such a sense of freedom from not having to keep doing it! Plus I'm almost unique, because you very rarely see people who haven't got dyed hair!

You're right, everyone colors their hair. My mom does! haha. At least your all natural and your hair is probably healthy!

i dye my hair with Clairol Natural Instincts hair dye. i like a change every now and then, gives a nice refreshing feeling sometimes. i like this brand cause i can do it at home myself in 15 minutes and there's no ammonia so it doesn't ruin my hair at all which is a bonus!!

yes, when i was in college i dyed my own hair, it was too expensive to go to the salon so i bought hair coloring and there were instructions there and the tools so i did it on my own. when i had work, i stopped dyeing my hair thinking that they might not take me seriously if i have red hair haha.

Yes, I did dye my hair. It was just to be able to do something 'different'. It's cool because it makes me look a little younger and prettier. I chose the color burgundy to my dark brown hair.

for me, i do not like dying my hair. i like my natrual color-black. although many of my friends ask me to dye my hair as a try, i always refused. meanwhile, my parents also do not like me to change hair color. if you ask me the reason, there is no reason, just do not like

I can't say Im really bored with my hair, but I do color it every 6-8 weeks to maintain the reality that I am still blonde at age 40 (tee hee)! I have been coloring my hair for several years now and I don't really mind going to the salon and paying someone to do it right, as you can really mess up your hair if you put the wrong color on over an old color. I learned that lesson a few years back!

I did and I still do. My favorite hair dye color is a combination of burgundy and light brown. I usually mix these two colors to give my hair a nice color. I usually have my hair dyed when it is short because it is easier to maintain.
