OK.

Now I am really jealous.

I cannot BYOB because nothing OTC will cover my big white spot that is right on top. If it were only a streak, I would let it go.

I can't score Wella on the street. Salon only.

When my hairdresser had to bring me back from the festive shade of pink where I had been left by my former hairdresser, I was in the chair for hours. She took all the color out. Tried one brand to put it back. Did not get it. Then hit it with Wella. That is the only thing that works. She also finishes the process by adding something called "clear" which closes the cuticle that is roughed up with dye. That brings back the shine. (At least I think that's how it works. - anyway, it works.)

As far as letting it go - How in the world do you do the transition? - not that I am even considering it. I do think that is easier for those with dark hair because they just do the sophisticated salt and pepper thing for awhile.

(OK girls, now we have bored the men to the point of stupefaction so we can talk about other stuff. They will never look back.)

So far, no-one planning to go grey??? If anyone has gone "natural", how do you make the transition from now to then? Guess I could go try on a grey wig. Ulp. Just the thought of it makes me cringe.

(Red, good luck with Hyacinth's husband, he is obviously a man of many talents.)

BBB, that was the point of the hair discussion. To bore the men silly. Alhough your story of pink was fascinating. ;D ;D Now, they're gone and we can talk about face creams that work, sex, lip plumpers, good places to shop for clothes in TV, etc.

For instance Spanx .... (if you haven't tried it, you're missing out).

Oh, my tip of the day! Safety pin your socks together before doing your laundry. (2 at a time, silly.) It makes sorting laundry easier and your dryer will never eat another sock.

I will go grey when I'm all white. I haven't seen my "natural" color since I was 16 (and when it was growing back from chemo but that doesn't count). As to transitioning, I'll just let it grow for about two to three months (thank goodness I love baseball caps) and then get it all cut off but the natural stuff.
