My husband and I have started eating more omega-3 fats. We now take a spoonful of freshly ground flaxseed daily. We eat salmon and English walnuts several times a week to improve our health. As a result of these changes, my hair is regaining its original color. I was a redhead, but it had turned blond. It is now becoming red again. I am 85. My husband had black hair when he was young, but he has been getting gray. His hair is now showing more black. He is 86. Has anyone else consuming omega-3 fats reported a return to natural hair color?

A year or so ago, you had a letter from a reader who said a pill she was taking turned her gray hair dark again. I know it's not guaranteed to work, but I'd like to try it. Do you know what she was taking? She was taking two cholesterol-lowering drugs, Zocor and Zetia. Her report was strange because her original hair color was blond, but her gray hair started growing in black while on these drugs. We invited other readers to tell us if they had similar hair-color changes, and many did. Most were on Zocor or Zetia or the combination (Vytorin)

An African-American woman is alleging she was fired from the Baltimore Inner Harbor Hooters' restaurant for having an "unnatural" hair color, according to a complaint filed with Maryland Commission on Civil Rights. Farryn Johnson, 25, claims her supervisors said her blond highlights violated the appearance policy for "Hooters Girls," according to her attorney, Jessica P. Weber of Brown, Goldstein & Levy LLP. When Johnson pointed out that other waitresses had obviously dyed hair -- an Asian-American woman had bright red hair and a white woman had black hair with platinum highlights -- her supervisors said her hair was "not natural" because she was African-American, according to the complaint.

It has come to my attention that very few women -- with the possible exceptions of Kim Basinger and my late, great-Aunt Cora -- are satisfied with the color of their hair.I bring this up because a group of women recently gathered around my desk to talk about their hopes and dreams and how you only go 'round once in this life so you might as well go for the brass ring. Hair-color-wise, that is.Exchanging confidences about hair color -- or to be precise, about altering one's hair color -- is one of those primitive bonding experiences that women go through.

Great literature is filled with rapturous descriptions of beautiful hair.John Milton wrote of "the loose train of thy amber-dropping hair." Rupert Brooke rhapsodized about "live hair that is shining and free."And in his song, "To Celia," Ben Jonson wrote:"Give me a look, give me a face"That makes simplicity a grace;"Robes loosely flowing, hair as free;"Such sweet neglect more taketh me"Than all the adulteries of art."You will notice that none of the poets used words such as frizzy, fried or cotton-candylike.

Thinking of getting a wig? Here are some styling tips:* A wig color similar to your own hair color will look most flattering and natural. But for outrageous drama, try a totally different color platinum blond on a brunette.* When your wig is similar to the color of your own hair, you can let your hairline or bangs show.* If you're looking for realism, don't style your wig with every hair in place. A tousled, windswept look will appear more natural.* Don't be put off by memories of the hot, heavy wigs of the '60s.

For Essex's Vanessa "Purple" Payne, being a big-time Ravens fan is all about the good she can do for the community. That, and making a lot of noise. Much of the time, the 48-year-old Payne, a chef at Geresbeck's Food Market in Middle River, can be found fulfilling her self-described mission: "I like to see nobody go hungry. " She organizes food drives, cooks and hands out lunches to hungry kids, even gets Ravens players to join in sometimes.

"Monsieur Romney est inauthentique," Mr. Lockes, a French citizen, told reporters. "Le candidat would shave his head pour un vote!" The Romney campaign denied the accusation. "Frank the barber is a disgruntled former employee who was fired for trying to spike Mitt's chamomile tea with caffeine," said a Romney spokesperson.

Why are so many women afraid of color? The fear is hard to understand, especially after you've seen Amanda Brennan in a radiant rainbow of hues that looks absolutely smashing. She's combined purple, green, turquoise, brown, black, white and gunmetal gray -- and nothing looks out of place. In fact, everything looks perfectly polished, as if they were made to go together.

Kiehl's makes the kind of cosmetics that inspire deep loyalties, prompt pilgrimages to the mother ship (aka its 150-plus-year-old flagship store in New York) and leave us wondering, "What else can we buy?" Their ingredients are of excellent quality, their packaging is pleasantly low-key, and their products cost enough that you feel as if you've purchased something great. Now there's good news for Kiehl's devotees -- the company recently introduced a new anti-aging cream that's said to have inspired waiting lists in Los Angeles, New York and Miami.
