not wanting to be in very old age and having dark colored hair that looks ridiculous got me started many years ago, promising myself that i would stop coloring well before i reached that point.
and i did!! :-) and, lol, my 85 year old aunt who colors her hair a fake-looking red, was horrified when she first saw my hair!! and then proceeded to tell me how she does her own hair and how easy it is!!
i also stopped as i felt all the time i put into it, every 3 weeks, was a big waste of time.
i am very surprised at how much i love my new natural color -- white, gray and a little black on bottom and here and there -- and how many compliments i get!! i am very pleased with this as it did not occur to me that i would love the color and how well it compliments my skin. i think most of us thought of gray/white hair as looking very old. i personally think it is the style, not the color. don't we all know people who do not have gray/white hair, yet wear styles that make them look dowdy and old?
