OT - Damn you Sarah Jessica Parker!
So I was watching tv last night and saw, yet again, Sarah J. Parker taunting me with her lovely hair color commercial. I Jumped up and said "I've got to get me some of that"! I've been sick of my dark brown hair for a while but for some reason she threw me over the edge. I went to Kroger and picked up a dark blonde on sale. My hair is now a lovely shade of light brown/red. I really like it. Of course this means I will have to keep coloring it from now till the end of time or it will look terrible. And with all that coloring it will look terrible in about 6 months anyway. Yeah, thanks alot "Carrie".

Pictures....and you don't have to keep coloring it, you could just let it grow out. Or wear a wig. Or put kool-aid in it. :rofling:

Boy, you guys are brave! I don't think that the change is so much that a picture would even show up. I'm just concerned about roots. If I were about 15 years yonger I may have considered the bright color route althought I know my family wouldn't have been impressed at all.

I'm letting my highlights grow out because I just don't want to spend the money anymore. I got some temporary color that lasts for a month and it helped a lot. It's been over a month and it still looks pretty blended.

At 53 I really don't have too much gray, but we'll see how it looks when it's all grown out. I may run screaming back to the salon.

I dyed mine red about a year and a half ago but never got around to re-dying it when the roots started to show. Eventually, the red faded enough that no one remarks on it.

I color mine too
I'm 51 and I know I have silver temples!! But I do color my hair and I really like how it looks. I use Hydrance and its not harsh or strong. It "gently" fades and there are no obvious roots that way. Two days after I color it my dd gives me blonde highlights. I get the highlights about every second time I color. Works out well for me. I'm not ready to go gray.

I have been going through haircolor horrors too lately - up until a few years ago, my hair was very short - when I broke up with exboyfriend, went through mid-life crisis and started growing it out longer.....well I was doing the highlight thing but it just got so darned...EXPENSIVE! Plus a big time consumer - so last fall I started trying to color myself. Well...it always looks GREAT when you first do it, but then it just looks so blah after 3 weeks. Plus it starts to feel crunchy or whatever. Last hair cut we decided we are going to put some lowlights in - and kind of bring it back to reality.

Its a slippery road!

I think it has a lot to do with my job, but my hair, at 48yrs, is probably 75% gray, or as I prefer to call it...silver! A couple years ago, I was on vacation for a month in the summer and I let it grow out and got it cut shorter than normal before returning to work so there would be no dye left in my hair. Well, I kept it like that for about four months. Then, one night I asked my husband what he thought of my hair being so gray....you don't want to know, said he.....yes I do, tell me.....well, if you really want to know, you remind me of my mother!!!!!! Needless to say, we went promptly to the drugstore and that was the last time I didn't dye my hair!

pat.....who is still brave enough to ask her husband things like this!

Holy cow, Pat! On the one hand I think husband should be more considerate, but on the other if it really bothers them and it's something like looking like their mother, well I guess you gotta know. My husband can't say much..he has almost no hair and what he has is white!
