And are you happy with your natural colour or would you choose a different colour?
I'm in a nosy mood.

I'm naturally blonde but I've always wanted to be naturally brunette. Many reasons why, but the main ones are the 'dumb blonde jokes', the other is blonde hair makes my face look constantly washed out and tired.

My natural cour is dark blond with lots of grey. My coloud of choice for the last X number of years is a mid cool blond - there's no way I would go natural!

My hair colour is a revolting blondish/brown "mouse" so I have been dying it since I was 14. I let a bit grow out recently to see what was happening and it was mouse with plentiful streaks of grey so it was back to the Clairol medium ash blond pretty quick.

Naturally very dark brown, which has lightened to a medium brown, first naturally and now with a little help, over the years. I prefer it darker, but in all honesty, slightly lighter probably suits my colouring more. I would love to have the courage to dye it black though, just once...

Gunmetal grey these days, sadly. I dye it back to my original mouse.

biker I always wanted that mousy blonde/Brown colour all through high school, I used to be so jealous of girls who had that natural colour!

Very dark, chocolate brown. I have honey coloured highlights in it at the moment but might go back to my natural colour soon.

Almost black, although I now have a few greys which stick out like a sore thumb!

DearMrDilkington Sat 05-Nov-16 23:32:19

Kim your hair sounds lovely!

My natural colour used to be jet black. I was then red for almost 20 years, every shade of red possibile. I then went blonde. It started off a dirty brunette blonde and everytime I got the roots done it became lighter. That lasted about 5 years. Then I went brunette with a couple of blonde streaks. I can see from my roots that my natural hair colour is now grey. FFS.

Dark brown originally but now mostly silvery grey. Currently it's pink.

Blonde. Im extremely pale and have freckles and don't actually think my natural colour suits me. I dye it ginger (like a proper copper colour, natural looking ginger) and it looks fab!

DearMrDilkington Sat 05-Nov-16 23:34:55

I'm probably going to dye my hair a light brown for the winter months. I can get away with blonde in the summer when my skin is more tanned but I just look ill all winter with blonde hair.

I also find my hair looks much thicker and fuller when it's darker.

naturally, strawberry blonde with accents of grey. I dye it to approx the colour it goes in summer (a shade or two lighter than natural). Thankfully if I'm tardy with my roots it's not so noticeable because I don't dye it a dramatically different colour,

Given a choice I'd naturally have titian hair, but it's almost impossible to replicate it well with dye.

SinglePringle Sat 05-Nov-16 23:36:12

I'm lucky; dark chocolate brown with natural mahogany, chestnut and honey highlights.

venys Sat 05-Nov-16 23:37:31

Strawberry blonde although around the back its gone brown. I dont dye my hair - although used to. Happy to be without the faff and the chemicals.

DearMrDilkington Sat 05-Nov-16 23:38:00

keeping I've never gone ginger before, do you do it yourself? I'm not sure I could pull it off, I've got very fair skin and hair but quite dark eyebrows for some reason!

ErrolTheDragon Sat 05-Nov-16 23:38:16

Natural blonde, and I've always liked it. Never had any dumb blonde jokes, and it suits my complexion. I must have saved a fortune not having any colouring or highlights (other than from the sun) over the years...55 and its still the same. I guess it will be the sort that fades rather than greys, will have to wait and see.

winkywinkola Sat 05-Nov-16 23:39:31

Crappy mouse brown.

Am bottle blonde but wish I had the colouring to be a beautiful chestnut. It just makes me look pale and drawn though.

alltouchedout Sat 05-Nov-16 23:41:56

Brown. It's been 14 months since I stopped dying it and I am so bored and want to dye it again, but I promised myself I'd wait until till every single bit of frazzled previously dyed hair was gone (trimming it off bit by bit). I was various shades of red for years. I miss the red.

oldlaundbooth Sat 05-Nov-16 23:43:49

Ash blonde. Don't dye it - dreading the day when I'll have to start.

Goes blonder in summer, darker in winter. Looks lots lighter when I've just washed it.

ijustwannadance Sat 05-Nov-16 23:44:55

When I was younger it was dark blonde with lighter blonde and ginger highlights.
Now it's a really dull and flat dark blonde. Luckily very few greys.

Thank fuck for hair dye!

NinjaLeprechaun Sat 05-Nov-16 23:45:28

Very, very dark brown with some hints of dark auburn. I'm nearly 45 and don't have a single grey hair. <smug>
I actually really love my hair colour, but have always not so secretly wanted to be a real redhead.

I tried dying it purple not long ago, but - not surprisingly - it barely shows up and I'm not willing to bleach it first.

Mistoffelees Sat 05-Nov-16 23:48:02

No idea, some sort of brown? I've been dying it since I was around 18, it's now unnatural red with pinky toned highlights. I tried to go a bit more natural coloured a couple of years ago and went with a chocolatey brown colour and didn't like it at all, would bleach it and go with a purple wash if I thought I could get away with it for work.

Mid-brown, with a slight reddish tint. Which has been replaced in recent years by a slight grey-ish tint. My hair colour has never bothered me, and I've no intention of dyeing it.
