It's only natural!

  1. Well, OK, it's not really... I was born with white-blonde hair, which changed to a light golden brown over the years. But somehow, somewhere along the way many years ago, it seems to have become RED! Copper red! Sure wish I know how THAT happened...

    I've been told over and over again by everyone that I should never change from my new "natural" color... somehow it brings out my blue eyes better than blonde or brown ever did. That's not to say that I don't play with the shade of red from time to time... a girl's gotta have her fun, after all. And it's therapeutic as well!

    So does anybody else like to assist nature from time to time? And what's been your favorite color to experiment with?

    I absolutely insist on fact I have been known to have a Caribbean Mahogany (deep red) head of hair from time to time!

    Please see the Graduation Picture Thread for example!

    You know i tried to experiment one time.. and i will never do it again without professional help! I wanted to bring out more of my auburn highlights.. well, i got a head full of bright burgundy hair instead, was very shocking for me and the kids just about laughed themselves sick everytime they looked at me. Since then i've never "experimented".

    Only time I ever fooled with my natural brunette color was when I was in my early 20's...... a loooooooooooooong time ago ! Hubby always like redheads, so I thought I can fix that ! Was nice the first year or so, then became gradually more and more ORANGE... had hair down to my waist at the time... didn't wear helmets much back then, either, and when I came down tearing the road, all you saw was a long, bright orange banner waving madly behind me !

    Enough was enough. Been back to my natural ever since.

    I am still trying to recover from my experimenting blunders. My natural shade is a,hmmm, soft black, I guess. It is actually a very lovely shade. Then after my son's birth at age 23, I got an urge to color my hair a PURPLE color, which faded to a dark reddish orangish color, bleh! Then, I colored my hair black and put in blonde highlights (chunky) which only made me resemble a bee. When doing this over a year ago, I didn't realize that I couldn't AFFORD to keep it up. I had these nasty roots for the longest time. Then, I attempted to cover that up by coloring it again...well, the blonde didn't pick up the color that well, so I am stuck with dark reddish orangish hair, once more. I just decided that I am going to let it grow out and cut it off.

    mine is naturally dark brown - except now that I am old!! its going white!! ahhhhhhhhhhhh and as I sure dont feel old enough to have grey/white hair, I have started colouring it a deep copper. looks ok- I'm a fair skinned, freckled, green eyed celt so suits me! also helps that both my sons have the most glorious red hair-so finally I look like their mum!!

    um... My natural color is mousy brown, with some platinum pieces... (platinum, and I mean it!!!)
    lately though, its been varying shades of red... most notibly, it was 'hot rod red' for a while.... which l loved.. .turns out that it starts falling out if you bleach it too hard to many times...
    so, now, its bright on the bottom, gradually turning brown on top... its interesting...

    I tried to have my hair colored once; wanted a little red in it (don't we all! .) It really didn't take, altho this wasn't the semi-permanent stuff - just the rinse. So she gave me blondish highlights instead. It looked ok, but I didn't have it redone. Just wasn't "me" .

    I notice I'm getting an occasional gray hair. Don't think I'll be coloring over that tho.
