To DYE or Not to DYE

When you reach my age
the big question is
to dye or not to dye...
the hair, since dying
of old age is a given.

As a child I was blond,
brunette as an adult
then gray hairs appeared
during my sons' teen years
revealing the aging process.

BEFORE-platinum blonde-frowning
So, I hit the bottle
Clairol's Nice and Easy
that become blond
again, but it was too light.

Now I'm trying a darker
color with more brown 
not just platinum hues
because my son said to me:
Your  hair is white, mother dear.

AFTER-natural light blonde-notice the smile!

Not to dye. I prefer not to mess with any of that. My hair is gray and that's fine because I've earned it.

It depends on what you want to gray or not... I do not want it... you look pretty

Oh yes! Very lovely Lin. It's nice to be blond because your roots don't show as much. If I were to dye my hair, you'd see the roots sprouting too quickly and I'm too lazy to keep it up. You look fabulous!
