This thread makes me grateful I have quit coloring my hair and gone gray. In the last week I have had two strangers compliment me on my hair. Several women in my book group quit coloring their hair after seeing my results. I had dark, fast growing hair and I got tired of walking around looking like a skunk. I could not keep up with the constant need to color.

Next week will be round two of my new hair cutter. My gal of 20+ years is 30 minutes away and Cliff has to drive me because of the parking situation and my walking issues. Problem is the new guy has no clue how to handle someone with a bad back. I was in misery getting my hair washed last time. Next time I'm bringing a step stool to have something to put my feet on, or I'm going in with wet hair and letting him figure it out that way. Great hair cut, but at three weeks I was shaggy so I realize my old gal was cutting me short (at my request) so I wasn't shaggy until week 6 (and I'd space appts 7-8 weeks). He is also the same price ($70) as the gal 30 minutes away in a chichi area, and I'd hoped the new price might be more like $50 in our town. So I'll go once more, but I think I see Super Cuts in my future. Either that or put Cliff back on chauffeur duty.

I love the simile. Too true, but I have so much cowlick that you can’t see my roots.

I'm with you, after hating the trouble of DYI, and disliking even more the $$$ of paying to have it done professionally. Sometimes I look in the mirror and think would I look younger if I colored my full head of grey. So I look away!

Over the last few years as I go more grey I have changed my highlights so it grows out fairly naturally. Being quite light it worked. Left it 6 months last year and didn't really notice a root line. Still my hair had less texture and just had no life so I went just after Christmas and had it highlighted again. DOn't remember the exact cost but about $160 which includes highlights. wash, cut and blowdry.
