honeyb -- never change something about yourself that you like, just for others. mil is probably just afraid of aging, her own aging i mean!! i have an aunt who hated my hair, explained to me how she colors her own (no comment here - LOL!), etc. now she has grown to love it and even exclaims to others about it. either way, i would not have started coloring again. and, the good news is that your dh is on your side!!
