I've decided to embrace it...haven't colored since February. My hair has never done well with any permanent color (professional or at-home) and the Semi-perm doesn't last long enough and turns my gray a funny color after it washes away....so since I only have a little gray, I'm stopping the color so it will come in nicely in the coming years. My mom has pretty gray and white hair and I don't want to be an old woman with black hair **yuck**
