Me too. Le sigh.

I used to dye my hair a lot. Red always stuck around forever. Dark brown faded within two weeks. I can't remember the last time I dyed my hair red, but you can see that the ends are still reddish. I even dyed my hair dark brown on top of that, but the red refuses to fade. No worries, though--I like it better than my natural color.

Me three.

Actually, I like my hair color. It is plain brown most of the time, but it can look almost blondish in some lights and almost reddish in others. It used to look a lot blonder when it was long.

I think that natural black hair is very common in most asian countries. Likewise, natural blonde hair is common in scandinavian countries and certain european countries like germany and poland.

In the US, my hunch is that most women have some shade of naturally brunette hair, especiallly judging by robust sales and use of hair dye.

My hair is naturally a very dark brown.

Good answer. I was only thinking of an American context. Bad girl on me!

When I was living in southern Italy, I never saw a natural blonde unless she was foreign born.

Mine too. The only reason I dye it is b/c it's so mousy.

I think actual black hair is not very common. Most people have a dark brown hair, that can look black, but really isn't.

I also read somewhere that no one actually has true black hair, it's just dark dark dark brown. Don't know how accurate that is, though.

Anyways, I have dark brown hair.

I was born with yellowish blonde hair that darkened to a dirty or dishwater blonde color.

I personally love dark hair

Blonde hair is overrated in my opinion.

Brunette can be used that way, but lately (with all the color-enhancing products) I've heard it being used to describe any shade of brown, even light brown.

My hair is black..Absolutely no highlights in the sun just shiney black hair, no brown to it at all. My Mother also has black hair, but we are the only ones in the family. Everyone else has very dark(almost black) brown hair..

Unless this is like the visual equivalent of certain sounds that only canines and humans can't hear, I have seen plenty of naturally black hair. I also have seen plenty of every other color of hair, natural or otherwise

Among the NC community, there is someone with the most gorgeous 3a/b hair who never adds any chemicals or heat to it and she has what appears to be naturally black hair. I think that she is latina. I can't remember her name, but started a thread raving about her hair once. She is shy with extremely beautiful hair and a gorgeous face too.

Among celebrities with naturally black hair, I think of Zhang Ziyi, Lucy Liu, Gong Li, etc..

Not all asians have naturally black hair, but the vast majority of them do.

My hair is very dark brown but not exactly black. Lately though, I would call it "beige" because the gray and overprocessed highlights have taken over!
