I lost my haircolor virginity almost 20 years ago. I'm 44. Out of necessity to cover gray (inherited premature gray from dad), I started with Clairol's Beautiful Brown (temp, wash out), went to Loreal Castings and Natural Instincts. I got tired of the fading and brassy color I got from those peroxide colors, so I switched to Color by Robert Craig over 15 yrs ago. I'll never switch again!

I have changed RC Colors over the years, going from #5 Coffee Brown to #7 Golden Chestnut for several years. As I'm getting more gray (now about 30-40% mostly in the crown), I've found I need a new color (grays were going bright red). Now I use a 1/2 & 1/2 mix of #8 Light Chestnut and #15 Golden Beige Blonde.
