I am 53 years old and have never had my had colored but recently started using the non permanent type on my hair .... starting to see some grey!!! When I was in my 20's I put a little wash in color and it turned
orange so I have always been afaid of color since then.
Wash in color isn't the same as fully dying it. Non-permanent is a safe way to try out what color looks good on you, but is more money out of your pocket! I suggest L'Oreal (Feria style is best, any color!). The regular boxes are for gray coverage especially, and the Feria type makes hair extra shiney and lusterous. I've been dying my hair for nearly 8 years!
