Have you used hair coloring?

Well, I finally did it. Just for the fun of it, I darkened my hair to a very deep brown. I have never used hair color before, but I am thinking about putting some highlights in now...I really like this color because it brings out the natural reds in my hair... Yea, yea I know not many guys dye their hair, but it wasn't near a big deal as I thought it would be, so I'm pretty happy about that. Have you used a hair coloring to alter your natural hair color? What's your favorite shade to go with?

I have never used any hair coloring products for my hair. The farthest I went maybe was when I used shampoo which promised long black hair but nothing more serious than that really. My mom would always tell me when I was younger that it wasn't good for the hair so I never really had my hair dyed. They would always say that chemicals will ruin my hair as if my hair was that beautiful anyway. But it's really ironic because she and my sister have always dyed their hair. That is the reason why I still haven't had my hair dyed and though I can afford it with my own money now, I still never dared and I dont know why lol..

i really don't know..maybe just opt for those hypoallergenic ones (if there are any) or just have someone trusted do it for you. as for me, I really don't want to color my hair, i just dont want it.. i am contented with my hair :D

Yes I have coloured my hair in the past. I used to really enjoy doing it before and would usually dye it every few months or so. These days I don't find it that exciting, probably because I have done it so many times already! I don't think theres anything wrong with doing it whether you are male of female - it's your body so you decide whether it's okay or not!

I used hair color in the past. My favorite color is "born blond". * Alas, as I got older, I developed a roaring case of eczema on my head. I can no longer use a curling iron, or even a blow dryer because the skin burns. Yech.

I dye my hair for looks, I don't go according to my eye color, I go according to my complexion or just something that I think would either look cool or just something I am just trying to go for. http://i38.tinypic.com/156r2nr.jpg

Maybe colored hair can bring you a dfferent feeling……I think,it can let you in a good mood.Am I right?Personally ,I'd like to change my hair style every 2 months,but I never get my hair dyed.For me,I try to keep my hair color naturally.

hi dear, no i had not dyed or coloured my hairs yet as i think that it may spoil my hairs and damage them.Beside this the natural black colour is the most suitable colour as far as i think........

i have used hair coloring and always do when the gray hair finds its way again, . i have tried several shades before and change it in the next session at the beauty parlor. i like trying out different shades which range from light to dark brown, reddish shade when sunlight hits it, bluish color (very slight ... in general it is somewhat black). last month's dye was dark brown and it came out black. i prefer the lighter shade of hair than this one. might again try the lighter share next time.

:) I love colored hair. Two years ago I had red fringe (my natural color is black), One year ago I had Neon Pink fringe (then turned into a blonde fringe), but to do it I had to oxygenate my hair t__t that was a big mistake. After that my hair was brittle, the color was so wonderful but my hair not. Now I have all black hair :) I'd like to have multicolor hair. Yeeeah :)

i dont have a lot of grey, just at the temples. i have dyed my hair maybe for about a year. my issue is that it goes really blond in the summer and gets light brown during the winter. i find dying your own hair is super easy!

my natural hair color is black, once I use blonde, quite good, but look not so natural, so I changed back to default one.

I have never colored my hair before. I guess i never really saw myself with any other color of hair than I have now. I did have a co-worker who used to color her hair all of the time. When she came to work, you never knew what color her hair was going to be. We used to laugh at her and tell her if she didn't stop coloring her hair, it was going to fall out! Coloring can damage your hair, so I've been told. But if I ever decided to color my hair, I would like to live life as a blond. They're supposed to have more fun!

My hair is naturally colored dark-brown that it's almost black. I have once tried putting highlights, and I really didn't like it that much. I have long wanted to dye my hair but I'm afraid that my hair might become dry with the chemicals. I've once tried using henna, and I really loved my hair's texture after that. The bad thing only was that it stunk. But really great results with the hair. It was cheaper, and organic! The henna color I used was brown so that I could get a dark brown shade :)

Hi ChaoticBeauty, yes...I did it last year November and that was my first do colouring for my hair. I chose brownish red colour and so far, it suit me and not that obvious too.I love this colour. Actually, I did want to colour my hair long time ago,but my mother always say that it will spoil my hair,so I never do it. But last year, I went to change my hair style,I permed my hair and according to my hairstylist,after perming,it will looks good if I were to colour my hair too. I took his advice and did it at last. I am so happy that the result is good and I am satisfied with it. But one thing for sure : i won't go for colouring very often,at least once a year still Okie.

I only tried a small amount to dye my hair when I was young. They said it was called "highlights" I think. I never wish to dye my hair in full because it might get dry after and I don't want to have a dry hair. Aside from that I dont want it to look unnatural. I prefer it the way it is as of now. I'm open to have my hair colored but not in full.

I have never had a hair coloring.And I would never want to have a hair coloring any way.These product is very bad for our health.And one of my friend told me that his hair conditon is terible because of the use of hair coloring product.His hair is very dry like the grass in the autumn.So I am strongly against a hair coloring.Once or teice maybe is okay,but too many times hair coloring is not that cool

I've tried several hair-colors and it's brown and yellow-based. I had highlights too. But this damaged my hair and now i am into treatment. I have a long curly hair and last month i had my hair cut to take away those with split-ends and started the treatment. Now i may not have a "colored" hair at least i have my hair back in its good and healthy condition.

No,i have never colored my hair and i do not think i will do in future as well.I am happy with the natural color of my hair however it is but i am trying to grow my hair lengthier and want it more thicker.I do not use hair color for the fear of losing natural color once i use hair color, and also about the side effects which may be caused due to chemicals used in manufacturing of hair colors.

I don't really color my own hair. I guess because I am a guy and guys usually don't color their hair. But I have seen older men go and color dye their hair. I would do it but I notice that after a while your hair grows and the roots of the hair. Then I would have to get the roots colored again to cover it up. It would be a big hassle to me. lol.
