Default Re: Gray Hair

I had dirty blonde hair (straight and fine) and dyed it red or lighter blonde through out adulthood. A few years ago I wanted to let it go natural, I was about half silver. (I'm 60). I kept it short for a while too. I do love my silver but I think about dying it now and then and im letting it grow out.

Hmm...I think I will get some red dye next time I go to Walmart. ...

So far I only have a gray hair or two. I'll have to wait and see what happens.

I got a haircut a week ago and now more of the brown is gone and more of the gray is visible. Since I used semipermanent dye, it is fading out rather than leaving a line, thank goodness. So far I am feeling OK about it and no one has said anything. I will have to send a picture to my family before I visit since I haven't seen them for 9 months.

I have very thick, mid-length white hair and everyone says that it is beautiful!

I used to dye the grey out at work because when transitioning from reddish to grey I got negative comments and behaviour. I didn't want to deal with that negativity day in day out (male dominated industry). Dying it didn't actually make it back into the reddish mane that I had in my twenties, and I am much happier since I stopped seeing the regrowth in shopping mall mirrors and let nature take it's course. A good clear white goes with lots of different coloured clothes also.

I seem to be more smiley in public than I used to be when I was struggling to look like I was still 20, and the smiles get reciprocated.

Default Re: Gray Hair

I decided to quit dyeing my hair maybe a year ago. I was born a brunette but always liked red hair and dyed it that color many times. For quite a few years more recently I was dyeing my hair burgundy. I was curious to see how gray I was so I let it grow out. I turned 60 last month and I like my gray hair and I've earned every gray hair on my head! I had a pixie hair cut for many years but now I have a bob. I doubt I'll dye my hair again.
