Default Gray Hair

I have decided to take the plunge and let my hair go gray and then grow it long. I was going to wait until I was 70, but I turn 60 in a month and I thought "what the heck!".

I did this once before but started dying it again after I was mistaken for my best friend's mother!

Anyone else have gray hair stories?

My grey just dulls my hair and they are also fizzy. I just got my hair professionally dyed for the first time on my 60th birthday and I got so many compliments I've decided to keep doing it until they grey outnumbers the auburn. But long grey hair, go for it, I think it looks great.

I have purple hair and its naturally dirty blonde. I have some minor salt and pepper going on if I leave it although I have been purple for 5 years now. Once I know it will go white I will let it grow out and never plan to have it short. I like my long hair no matter what color it is.

Default Re: Gray Hair

I have gone all grey - white even - on my facial hair.


The sides of my head are grey now too.



I used to have blonde hair, but I like the grey better. I won't be changing it.

I have been silver gray for 6 years now. I love freedom from expense and time spent in the salon dyeing my hair. I try to wear jewel tone colors now since light colors wash me out.

As soon as I get a grey hair I have it coloured. The joys of getting old.

I have gone the natural route now for a good while. People tell me my shade of gray looks nice.

I have always refused to color my hair. It started going gray after my knee surgery when I was 39.

I don't use make-up.....I am an all natural kinda person. What you see is what you get. I actually like the silver highlights my gray creates now & no one's suggesting I do anything differently will work. I don't need to be anything different than what I am naturally.

Oh yes....in the old days my grandmother was into dying her hair & fingernail polish. She developed a horrible reaction to both. I already have had allergic reactions to makeup so I don't want to even throw away money on trying to find what might work....waste if time & $. Everything we use on our hair or body gets into our pours & into our system.....not adding anything more than what naturally happens in my environment.
