you guys are inspiring me. i am going to grow my gray out and NOT cut my hair which is waist length when wet. my color is now overdue--last coloring early june. i kind of like my gray that is coming in--softer on my face. ok i can talk a good game when i have a suntan--i dread it when i get pale tho..we'll see how much it can grow in 3 months....

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?
