To Color On Not To Color, Tha's The Question

Since last Fall, I started to let my hair go white, but right now I am debating again and again if it wouldn't be smarter to color it again. I think that the white stuff is getting to me a little too much. Maybe some color would perk me up. Maybe not. I think I will try one more time to go for color and see if it makes a difference in my mood. Do you still color your hair or have you given up the whole thing?

i highlight my hair and it's time again. i can't afford the upkeep of doing it on a regular basis. seems to happen about once every 9 months. so i get the kind that grows out without obvious roots. i have some grey popping through. i eventually will have to start doing it more often to keep that covered

Yes I do color my own hair at home. I don't mind a little bit of gray.

I was coloring my own hair for decades until a few months ago, I stopped and now thinking of doing it again.

i give it a natural look - salt and pepper as dyeing it completely would not suit my age.

My mother in law gave up with coloring and her white hair is gorgeous to her and to us. I color my hair crazy colors when I can

Ask yourself and take bold decision. There is natural coloring methods also.

@marlina Then do it a try. Make sure that it is not allergical. I recommend natural methods like henna mixed with egg etc.

I have never colored my hair. Not sure if I ever will. Do what makes you feel good

You are right, I will do what will make me feel better and "younger".

I haven't colored my hair in quite some time. I have a lot of greys sprouting, but it's still mostly brown. Maybe one of these days.

Maybe one day, you won't be able to take it anymore.

Colored hair in women looks good! My mother who is 73 years old tints her hair permanently; the hair color fits her right and makes her look interesting and cool.

I like to leave it naturally though some men also take care to look good - siva

I don't colour mine - I'm white now but quite like it. If you think it may make you feel better, then go for it.

I color my hair once a year usually. I don't want to damage my hair with the chemicals so I don't do it more than that usually.

I have colored my hair since high school. There is gray in there, but I never see it. I just color my hair the color of the hair I had as a child. Will continue to color forever.

I personally don't. Started going gray when I was 16... lucky me, I ended up with Nature being extremely nice and ended up with a single streak of silver on one side for the longest time. I like it, so I've never bothered covering it up. The way it is makes it look deliberate. I have a few more coming in here and there now, but it doesn't bother me. If I could figure out a way to speed things up a bit I might do that. I think the silver color I'm getting is great. If it really bothers you, go for coloring it again! There's no reason to put up with something that you don't care for, and if you don't like it you can always change things up again. Heck, I'd even suggest a few streaks of a completely unnatural shade just to brighten things up... but I'm totally weird like that.

I think you can have a hair dye for a change.

One of the things I don't have to worry about, letting my hair grow! I'll leave it to make up its own colour

I don't have much gray, but if I did, I would color it. But that's me!

I do sometimes, but it depends on if I can afford to keep it up. Right now, no money, so at most will add stuff that encourages my hair to get golden streaks from the sun
