Hi Valerie,

I’m totally overwhelmed by how many of you color your hair! It really does seem like the thing to do, LOL. I used to color mine several years ago, always wanted to get darker hair (kind of like an almost-black with reddish cast).

I’ve been coloring my hair since I was a freshman in high school I think. I’m 23 now and I haven’t seen my natural hair color in years haha (except for roots). I’ve had just about every hair color except blonde. Right now my hair is black with pink highlights.

i started coloring my hair red in 2004. i’ve done it black, brown, pink, and now it’s black with purple underneath

Not anymore. I had highlights as long as I wore shoulderlong hair. But right now with my inverted bob like Posh Spice I decided to wear my natural darkblond color, and I like it.

my natural color is vey dark brown πŸ™‚
a hairdresser told me once,that my color is very unique,and i MUSTNT ever color it :-DDDD
BUT,i told her i will color it blonde once πŸ™‚
she freaked out :-DDD
then i bought a box of red and a box of blonde hair color.
i couldnt ecide which highlight should i have πŸ™‚
then i decided to use the blonde…
step by step i have become a really blonde gal πŸ™‚
i enjoy it,bc its better with pastel makeups πŸ™‚
but i always am worried bc of my brows….
they have been black,blonde,brown,black again… πŸ™‚

I’ve only ever coloured my hair once – when I was a wee goth in high school πŸ˜€ Bright red highlights but they were difficult to maintain , my hair is really dark – the darkest brown before black as my hairdresser put it – and red fades super quick.
I got sick of them grew the bleached highlights out.
I doubt I’ll ever dye it again , i love the colour of my hair as it is πŸ™‚

after a traumatic bleach experinece (which forced me to cut off all my hair), i haven’t dyed my hair in over 5 years, and i’m better off that way — no worry about root touch-ups, damaging my hair…………it’s really healthy and shiny, and luckily i’m a natural dirty blonde so it’s a good color πŸ™‚ only downside is that i have ALOT of grey, and you can see it more and more latley……

Hi Courtney,

Oh no! I think I’d cry rivers if I had to cut off all my hair πŸ™ My boyfriend’s mom recently decided to “embrace gray.” My mom is still in denial, lol!

I donΒ΄t color it since it is very light blonde, a color lots of people pay lots of money for – as my hairdresser says. So I guess IΒ΄m lucky, more money to buy MAC, hehe!

I’ve been coloring my hair since high school (omg, 30 years plus!!) It’s brown naturally but has been all colors of the rainbow, blonde, black and various shades of red. Right now I am in a dark brown with plummy highlights mode πŸ™‚

As long as it’s not gray!

lol, I just got my hair coloured yesterday!

naturally my hair is a neutral flat dark brown colour (in summer it’s nice tho, cos it gets some natural highlights).

I’ve been colouring my hair since year 7, but not often and not full-on. I’ve done a deep cool purple washout, and copper/bronze/deep golden brown highlights. Currently my hair is really natural-looking with cool toned medium brown/ashy dark brown/rich dark coppery brown highlights (lol thats alot of shades of brown!!)

surprisingly I’ve never done a whole head of colour! One day I want to lighten my hair properly…but its gonna be hard because i’ve got REALLY dark eyebrows…..dammit i’ll have to tint them. maintaining ANY hair is hard and time consuming lol!

I color my hair a chocolate brown color. My natural hair is dark brown. I have tried red and light brown with highlights before too, but I prefer the chocolate brown.
I want to go black for fall. Haven’t tried that color yet πŸ™‚

I color my hair regularly. My natural color is black and now it’s brown with some mahogany highlights

I normally do but when my brother left for Iraq a year ago, I made a promise that i wouldnt cut or color until he was home safely.

My natural hair color is a VERY dark brown( borderline black) and i color it auburn/burgundy. Last year i did auburn with bright red highlights but after a while- it looked auburn with golden/blonde-ish highlights which i love also.

I really dont know if ill color again now since im starting to love my natural hair color.

He didnt tell me so. Its more of a sacrifice because i love to color my hair and its a promise to GOD that i wouldnt do so until my brother was home safe and sound.

all the time!! i get bored and hair i think is the easiest way for a fast, drastic change. my hair is naturally light brown (from what i remember, haven’t seen it since middle school!)I did the blonde thing all through college, then last year i started going darker. right now it’s ‘dark burgundy brown’ but i wanna go light again!! lucky for me, my best friend is a hairdresser πŸ™‚ so i just go to the beauty supply store and pick my color and she does it for me πŸ™‚

I used to color my hair blonde, but my hair was started to get quite ruined because of it, so last year I went back to my natural brown color.
I’m not sure if I’ll color it again as everyone says my natural color suits me best and I’m starting to like it too.

My hair was fairly black, then I got a relaxer…after a while it turned dark brown(no difference indoors, but in sunlight you could tell).

Last year I got a purple/plum rinse and 3 months ago I got a red rinse.

I’ve never had permanent color or highlights. I’m cheap and since I have the relaxer, I don’t want to do too much to my hair.

I haven’t had my natural hair color since 4th grade. Right now, it’s purple and pink on the front and shades of brown for the rest of my head.

I’ve been colouring my hair for a couple years now. My natural colour is dark blonde, so for a few years I just highlighted it, but then I got bored, so I switched to red. I’ve been experimenting since then so I’m currently medium brown.
