And with chemo happening you just don't need another thing like that to be concerned with. Nothing more beautiful than natural shiny healthy hair!
Thanks. I am leaving it alone for now.

Thanks Strawberry!!!!

I am keeping it the way it is. I normally do until the moment when I look at it and it makes me feel older than old. Then I get it colored.

I have had the color here since March, I guess, from e salon and have not used it. I am going to college in the fall and I may feel like doing it then.....maybe not..

When I was in college a few years ago I was the oldest one there and I will never forget when one of the girls told me she wasn't even born when I graduated high school!

Now I just laugh on it....

I've noticed that when older women color their hair it never looks alive, you know? The ones who keep their silver or white often have lovely hair, especially if they don't perm it. In your case, I'd try to wear it natural, especially since you are giving your body a hard time with the chemo. In a year, you can revisit the issue. And then, you might feel differently.

I don't color my hair, and I am in my mid sixties. Right now it is a mix of blonde and white. Sometimes I like it better than other times.

Believe me, it always looks better, especially in the long run. Mother nature will provide the transition from color to white beautifully..if she's given the chance.

Pikantari, with your coloring, the silver-gray looks attractive. You can always color or highlight later if you choose to. Is that a tat on your shoulder? You don't sound or look the type to turn "matronly" so the silvery gray won't age you, IMO.

Thank you all!

Townandcountry, yes, that is a tattoo on my left arm. It goes a little onto my back and on my shoulder. There is a pic of it in my album, I think.

I agree with this and it's a state of mind.
I'm 55 and quit coloring last year; love my silvery hair! I also have a couple of (discreet and easily-hidden) tats and have been putting little feathered decorative hair extensions in my hair....

I think some people look "matronly" no matter what color hair they have, and Pikantari certainly doesn't look at all matronly to me!

Matronly. I thought that was a married person...... am I wrong?

Is it a mean old wench? LOLOL. If so, then you are right, I am not that.....

Partially. According to Merriam Webster:

Quote:
a
Quote:
: a married woman usually marked by dignified maturity or social distinction
b : a woman who supervises women or children (as in a school or police station)
c : the chief officer in a women's organization
Matron - Definition and More from the Free Merriam-Webster Dictionary
