No,I don't. Funny thing,to me,is how so many people dye their hair red.I am a redhead.Growing up, everyone always made fun of my red hair.I find it very odd that many of the same people who taunted me about being a redhead, grew up and dyed their hair red.

Yeah, I know what you mean -- but it's almost as if people are more accepting if you *choose* to be a redhead, but knowing that you had no say in the matter makes them think it's okay! It's like the way people mock blondes for being 'bimbos' -- we all know that's not necessarily true, and they don't mock the bleached blondes!

Yeah, I dye my hair all the time because I got fed up with the colour... People often tell me that it's bad to dye your hair so often, but it's so *thick*, I don't see myself being bald any time soon! I think it's good to dye your hair (if you want to!), because it gives us all more individuality than we necessarily get from conventional hair colours, or those which we are born with -- after all, people are judged on their hair colours anyway, they might as well be judged for a colour that they chose. And these myths about hair dye are ridiculous, anyways, I don't see why people are so against dying your hair -- don't knock it until you've tried it!

I have been colouring my hair for a long, long time now. I colour it now to hide the grey roots that are beginning to seep through, but in the past I just coloured/streaked it for a different look! I rarely have the same shade for long though. I would love purple streaks/or hot pink, but, I work in a school,and although the kids would certainly love the change in a member of staff, I don't think that my very coservative headmisstress would be too pleased. My teenage daughter has gone from being a red head( she was fed-up with people calling her Ginger, I kept reminding her that it was Titian not Ginger!) to a dark brown with gold high-lights!
