    Think I am going to give this a try. After having a buzzed head for the last 30 yrs, I am going to the opposite way and have not had it cut for over a year. Now pony tail length and I kinda like it.
    But, my grey is starting to show a bit so I need to color. Should I use this before or after I color?
