Do you have highlights, color..?

I am curious how many of the ladies on this board do some kind of coloring, high or low lighting of the hair. How many have only their own natural color?

    I highlight sometimes, and always color the grays. :P

    i voted yes because i still have some blonde left at the ends, but i haven't dyed it since november 2004 and have no intention of doing so anytime soon. i've learned to appreciate my red!

    I've never colored or highlighted my hair, and never plan on it. I do wish, though, that I had more than ONE natural blond streak in my hair, but nope-- just the one in the front! Still-- I like my natural hair color the way it is.

    I've been messing with color since my high school days. I used to put the lightest shade of blonde you could buy hoping to get it lighter brown and all I'd get is alot of reddish brown. If I didn't like it, I'd go get my natural color and put it back on. I was horrid to my hair back then, besides blow drying and always wondering why my hair was never straight :roll: .

    I began getting it highlighted a couple years ago to cover the gray coming in slow at the temples and also to give my hair some texture because of it being thin on top/crown. I have no idea when I'll just let the gray take over :? .

    I hennaed my hair red for the first time this past Thanksgiving. Other than that, I've never colored my hair, and I don't ever plan to use anything other than henna to color it.

    loving my curly hair!

    Do whatever works for you. Who cares whether you're violating curly "doctrine"?

    Actually, I just dyed over my blonde highlights. Now I'm at a Reddish Brown. I'm not planning on redying it until this summer, unless just to cover the roots. :wink:
