never understood why you can spell the word grey as either gray or grey and both are still correct o.O only the english language feh so im sitting here with this goop all over my head watching the clock waiting till i can rinse the stinky stuff offa me. i started going gre/ay when i was very young and ive been having to do this since i was 17 ive had a veritable plethora of different colors tryin this or that to see how id look.. and finally a few years ago, decided to let my hair actually grow out to find its original tint and try matching it LOL finally found a really good brand that has amazing colors and have managed to match mine nearly exactly. its just a shade darker than my own.. which is fine by me cause it gets rid of the really orange in my hair and makes it a nice warm auburn instead. been pondering the idea of letting my sprite put a couple purple streaks in her platinum locks for a fun something new. last year she had hot pink and it looked wickedly cute atm.. ive got what feels like ants crawling over my skullcap to the point i wanna dig the stuffing out of my skin.. but only 20 minutes to go before i can get some relief LOL whats the most outrageous permanent color youve changed yer hair to for fun or otherwise?

Ahhhhhhhh.........vanity! lol. I got my first grey/gray hair when I was 14. It's hereditary in my family and my mother was completely grey/gray by the time she hit 30. Fortunately for me, it didn't happen until I turned 35. I used virtually every color in the book...except blonde or red. My hair is naturally dark brown so I tried to get a color that would at the very least compliment my own coloring. I hate the dyes! The smells...the waiting....the stains on my skin and clothes! So, for my 40th birthday I said, "Enough is enough!" I stopped dying it and just let it do what it naturally does. I have to say, I'm really happy with it. It goes with my face! lol. I'm very lucky in the fact that people generally guess my age a few years under my actual age....grey/gray hair or not! I'm saving money, taking better care of my hair and being completely natural in the process. I can't believe I wasted so much time, effort and hard earned cash for the sake of vanity! lol. Go au natural!

Mark my words, Tessah. Some day your going to be doing that dye job, look at yourself in the mirror and say, "Why bother?" That's when you really start to recognize yourself. When you can accept yourself as you are. Not trying to get all philosophical or deep on you. It just naturally happens as we age. Well, not all the time. Not with those women who go the plastic surgery or botox route trying to reclaim their youth. Dying your hair is in a class all it's own. Especially when premature graying is involved. Probably has a lot to do with the fact that gray hair is associated with aging when in actuality it is what it is. You and I are perfect examples of that as well as those we inherited the trait from. $120 a year is not a bad investment in yourself, especially if it enables you to recognize yourself.

Ive had pink streaks in my hair before, Im always careful with dyes now as Ive read things about people being allergic to them so I always do a strand test first. By the way I totally agree with the word grey/gray. I have never known which way to spell it!
