I've met a few women who never have dyed their hair.

I previously dyed my hair (off and on from around 1999-2015) because hair was one of my favorite art media. Colors and art are definitely two of my SPINs.

I haven't dyed my hair in around 5 years as I have had to devote myself fully to biodegradable products. I've been living off grid, and I cannot have dyes/questionable chemicals going directly into the watershed. I also have chronic health issues, so I do not have the energy to continue maintaining my "art projects". It has been a freeing experience to not put any products in my hair. I have a lot of silvers coming in, and I'm embracing them.


Beautiful...my daughter does hers with all contrasting colours. She gets really good comments from strangers in the street as well. She's had to dumb it down a little bit lately because she's got quite a serious job but I reckon she can do it again once she settles in.

I never used to dye mine until about ten years ago and I started bleaching it peroxide blonde (My hair is dark brown naturally) and I just carried on dying it from then. I really liked it when I did it a very light shade of pink one time. It's copper colour at the moment.

Waiting for hair to grow out, cheaper to dye it if it’s shorter, boredom,curiosity,attraction, fun,cheaper than drugs,hobbies,driving. I got my hair dyed for about $100 then just let it grow out so it looked like ombré. Cheaper than buying new clothes. Depends where you go. Depends what you want. Can’t go wrong with temporary box hair dye. Isn’t friends mum was a hairedresser so she have me half a head of foils for free worth about $60.

Hair dye is kinda like grooming. Just a thing you do when you’re young. People get their haired died ever 6weeks when they go grey. Just starve yourself and then you’ll be able to afford it.

I dyed my hair between ages 16 and 37. I would dye it again now if I had the physical energy to devote towards it. The reasons I stopped: 1) because we went off grid (had to use biodegradable products) and 2) my chronic health issues were getting in the way.

Note: I know plenty of 70-90 year olds who love to put bright colors over their white hair. My mother-in-law is 62, and she puts vibrant magenta over her white hair. White hair can easily reflect so many vibrant colors!

Dyeing one's hair at home is not that expensive. Salons are an entirely different story.

I'm going silver and don't care to cover it at this point. I actually like seeing those hairs. I honestly would just love the opportunity to experiment with vibrant hues again (I used my hair as creative tool).

I've also never dyed my hair... but then I also don't do anything else with my hair outside of washing it and brushing it. I haven't even had a haircut for a few years lol, I hate going to hairdressers.

I've never dyed my hair and don't plan on doing so.

I've never been against it especially, but as with make-up, I never felt the need for it.
