In my late teens and early 20s, my hair was bleached blond. It started turning gray mid-30s. Decided I liked it just fine and never colored or bleached it...until about six-eight months ago when I decided that it was time for something different. By that time, it was salt and pepper but mostly salt. My DGD has spent the last couple of years coloring her hair in whatever shade suited her at the moment, and I wanted to try it but figured I was too old. Hey! Wait. If not now, when? It's not like I'm going to get younger, and besides, it washes out after being shampooed a few times. So. Now my hair is blue. Yup. Blue. I'm a blue-haired old lady, and I LOVE IT! You'd be surprised how many people stop me on the street, in stores, wherever to compliment (and congratulate!) me on the blue hair. Heck, why not? YOLO!
