Dang. I grabbed a box of hair color from under the bathroom sink as the grays were taking over. My waist-length hair is now a beautiful, and very DARK shade of burgundy that is not normally found in nature. The box said "medium reddish brown." The picture on the box matched my original color perfectly. The box lied. Oh well, the grays are gone.

You are retired. It's about time you started getting eccentric.

My grandson has some blue hair color, we could get you into a nice, deep purple.

The shade would be very nice in a fabric or a set of sheets. On my head, not so much. The upside is that I scare DH every time he comes into the room and doesn't recognize me.

Dawg, one of the local radio stations has a DJ who has burgundy-purple hair. I say "rock on"! BTW, I decided to let my gray hang out around age 53 and have never regretted it. Just sayin'...

It really is a pretty color. It's just that I've never seen hair this shade before. And it's so dark.

I'd happily let it go gray, but it's only partially gray, and just ages me.
