Default Do you have highlights, color..?

I am curious how many of the ladies on this board do some kind of coloring, high or low lighting of the hair. How many have only their own natural color?

I highlight sometimes, and always color the grays. :P

I've never colored or highlighted my hair, and never plan on it. I do wish, though, that I had more than ONE natural blond streak in my hair, but nope-- just the one in the front! Still-- I like my natural hair color the way it is.

I have a permanent colour put through every 4 weeks. Just not ready to give in to the greys yet!

I've been messing with color since my high school days. I used to put the lightest shade of blonde you could buy hoping to get it lighter brown and all I'd get is alot of reddish brown. If I didn't like it, I'd go get my natural color and put it back on. I was horrid to my hair back then, besides blow drying and always wondering why my hair was never straight .

I began getting it highlighted a couple years ago to cover the gray coming in slow at the temples and also to give my hair some texture because of it being thin on top/crown. I have no idea when I'll just let the gray take over .

I hennaed my hair red for the first time this past Thanksgiving. Other than that, I've never colored my hair, and I don't ever plan to use anything other than henna to color it.

loving my curly hair!

Do whatever works for you. Who cares whether you're violating curly "doctrine"?

Actually, I just dyed over my blonde highlights. Now I'm at a Reddish Brown. I'm not planning on redying it until this summer, unless just to cover the roots.
