Let's see whether more GAGers dye their hair or are there more who keep their natural hair colors.
I was sitting in the tram today and out of the 4 people who were sitting in a seat group, 3 have their hair dyed (including me). The roots are darker. The other woman was an adorable older lady, so her hair changed colors naturally I guess haha..
So poll away people!
Oh and if you do dye your hair, how often do you dye your roots?
I use a semi-permanent rinse (kinda like Manic Panic, but I use Adore which comes in natural colors) when I want to change up my hair color. It rinses out in 4-8 weeks and I end up with my natural color after that.
I'm personally afraid of using dyes on my hair as I've had a chemical relaxer before and that KILLED it. Granted, I know how to take better care of my hair now (you can't straighten your hair everyday and have a chemical process going on and then wonder why your hair "never seems to grow") but I do have some hair extensions which I dye regularly. I have an ombre look going on with it fading from brown to red at the moment, but I don't wear my extensions everyday. Only when I'm feeling bored with my real hair.
I've had salt pepper hair since I was 12. Never colored them. Was forced by my MIL to be to do so and I was allergic to colors that I didn't realize obviously, Spent the whole honeymoon being nursed for the allergy that turned my whole head red with rashes lol.
I dye my hair. I have naturally almost platinum blonde hair, and I hate it haha. Since I'm very pale otherwise, it makes my face look flat and washed out. It's now a dark brown, and I love it. It looks very flattering on me and it contours my face perfectly. I dye my roots every month. My hair grows very fast, and since it's so light, it looks like I'm balding if I don't dye it after a month haha.
When I was younger, I used to dye it black and add random colors like blue, purple, or red. But I haven't done that in a LOOONG time (7-8 years). I'm happy with my dark brown color, I prefer the natural look now and I love being a brunette ^_^
