What is the best way to color long hair to cover up the grey?


I am 52 and have medium brown, below shoulder length hair that is starting to show grey at the top. What are the pros and cons of different ways to cover the grey? Streaking? Going blonde (my kids are against this!), trying to dye the same color? Going darker? What sort of coloring should I use?

    Interesting--I didn't know henna could be mixed with other things. Thanks!

    Great idea to test first. That is actually my biggest fear--getting a wrong color all over my head!
