I should have used the word thicker instead of stronger.

My hair is about as far from virgin as it can get, lol

It's more of a... Strumpet, harlot, streetwalker, etc.

But yeah, it's been pretty much every color of the rainbow over the years. Currently in the purple range

I guess I have virgin hair! I have NEVER colored my hair. Although in the 1980's I did get a few (bad) perms Hey, it was the 80s. Strangely, my hair has suddenly become naturally wavy in the last few years. I wouldn't need a perm now.

I have naturally golden blonde hair and luckily not a gray hair in sight so far. My skin is very pale -- I sunburn easily -- so blonde hair is the only thing that would work with my coloring. I would look terrible as a brunette.

My pretty hair is by far my best feature and I have never needed to color it. However, when the gray hairs arrive I guess I will have to break out the Lady Grecian Formula

I'm arrogant about my hair, and I used to deliberately swing my hair around and let it bounce on my shoulders as I walked to show off how pretty it was . I even did that at work Ah, youth.

Hey, if you've got it, flaunt it.

Seems we all were getting perms in the 80's and early 90's.. When I stopped having them my hair got some of it's natural curl back that I hadn't seen since I was under 10. Funny how that happend but it is much easier to take care of now. No more perms for me. I think most of the time the beautician left the solution on way too long for my hair type. I did get a few good ones when I rememberd to tell them to not leave it on so long. It always seemed easier to manage after the first trim after the perm.

If you are born blonde, or with beautiful coppery hair, or even a rich, multifaceted chestnut, it is much easier to stay a color virgin.

Plenty of mousy browns hair gals kind of need help. I'm one of them.

Teehee...I know that... My husband has very dark hair so it's easy to see his grey hairs. He's still in his 20s. Each year he has gotten a new grey hair at the front left corner of his head. I tell him he gets a new grey hair for each year we've been married, and he agrees with my theory.

We could be related! All of the above is true for me (except the few grey/white hairs), and I'm also from NJ. Needless to say, I never liked the shore as much as everyone else did.
