    I color my hair now so if it is turing grey I would never know.  I recently went platinum which will solve the problem if grey ever does appear.

      Thanks for the response. My mom's hair is turning gray. I am telling her not to color her crowning glory. But I think, coloring her hair will be nice.

    Yes I will. Already planning to get something I can use to touch up just the light touches of gray. I might use henna.

    My hair is grey. I quit coloring it when it became about half and half, because at that point, no matter what color I dyed it. I had horrible roots a week later. It just became too much of a hassle to keep up with it.

    Absolutely.  If it's available why not.  Some people look good in gray or silver hair even when they are young, but I don't think I'd be one of them.

    I have been painting my hair for about 5 years. Approximately 5 years ago (go figure) I went to have my hair cut real short at Sports Clips, I distinctly told the nice woman to only cut my grey hairs! She did not follow my protocol!
    When I made it home with my bruised ego in-tow and looked in our "mirror, mirror on the wall" I suddenly thought I became color blind! All I could see was grey, grey, grey! Thus I paint, paint, paint, especially now since i am a grandfather (twice removed) and I want to really appear 18 for the 3rd time and play hockey until I am 30 for the 3rd time...

    To be honest with you sweetpikez, I still have my real natural hair colour which is black but if my hair turns grey, I am not sure what to do. If it turns grey and it does not look bad, I think I will leave it as it is. I just grow old gracefully with it. But if it looks awful then I might consider colouring my hair. I just don't like to ruin my hair really with the chemicals that are in hair dyes or colours.

      I understand your point. That's my reason why I don't want my mom to color her hair. Perhaps, reading the ingredients' label is helpful. On the other hand, I also admire women who are proud of their gray hair.

    No ... Extra expense and time .My husband is grey already so not worried about it ,be happy to have hair !More important things to worry about as I have bad arthritis in my knees and struggle to walk each day .
    All that extra money I save will go on more travel !

      I appreciate your response. I am proud of people having their grey hair. Having grey hair means a lot.

    I plan on dying my hair gray when it begins to turn. I love gray hair, I just can't stand that in-between stage.

    As you may be able to see in my profile pic, the answer is absolutely not. My family is full of people with "premature" gray and most of the women dye it. Not me. I've had at least some gray hair since I was around 20 and now it's almost all gray. I'm all natural and intend to stay that way.

    I've had gray hair since I was nine. I've learned to embrace it.

    Yes. I have nothing against gray hair but I personally feel I look better with black hair. Some guys like George Clooney and Anderson Cooper look great with gray hair.
