every two weeks i have to dye out a LOT of white and grey from my hair. My hair grows super fast (cut off to chin length in Feb and now below my shoulders again!).

I keep thinking - wouldn't it be great if you could just like, take a pill that caused your roots to turn whatever colour you were feeling on any given day?!

I have a ton of grey as well - started going grey when I was about 20, just before I got pregnant with my first child. I ciuldn't dye my hair during both pregnancies and even then, at 21 and 23 there were strands of grey!
Anyway, I have to dye my hair every few weeks as well,  but find the L'Oreal root concealer spray is a quick short-term disguise. It's not exactly cheap though, considering it doesn'tlast long, but it's easier to use than the Colour Wow product from Farmers.

i was 11 when i started going grey ;)

personally i'd probably still use hairdye when pregnant, i'd just look into best alternatives. But i've been dying my hair 20 years now so that does change things i think.

I just picked up some of that root spray and i love it! makes coverup a cinch :)

We have that LOreal root spray at work, when we first got it, it sold out in 4 days!   It is still so popular even hair stylists but it as well.

Yeah if I got pregnant now, I'd carry on dying my hair with the brand I use - I developed a sensitivity to something in the supermarket brand/mainstream brand hair dye. Even some of the "natural" ones cause me to break out in a terrible itchy rash and to go red. I finally found one via the NZ online store Healthbank that doesn't have any negative effect on me, and actually workes to cover greys (so long as I apply heat via a hairdryer over my plastic bagged hair).
But I have so much grey now and I'm just not ready.....it didn't bother me in my early 20s when it was just a few strands!

I know how you feel -I have to colour my hair every 3 weeks -I tried WOW and find it is horrible and does't do a great job either.
