OH MY GOSH - I haven't colored my hair in a little while (trying to give it a little rest as you can see by my roots - aaaggghh) I colred it last night and while I was putting the goop on I noticed a little cluster of gray hairs right at my forehead!!! I guess I am a woman now!!:(  My mom started dying my hair when I was three cuz she wanted a blonde daughter - its been blonde my whole life except for a stint in high school when it was pink!!:D  No body even knows my real color - not even me!! and evidently its going to be...GRAY!

My mom is 84 and has maybe a half a dozen gray hairs! Guess I am taking after my dad.

All the females in our family went gray early........I was 25 when I found my first gray hair!:eek: Of course my Dad and all the males in the family didn't get gray until they were in their 70's!:confused:

Ahhh... the age-old dilemma. To dye or not to dye. I am going to try Revlon Ammonia-Free Colorsilk today. But it's waaay too much work, if you ask me. Believe it or not, hair coloring is on my schedule for today. Have to look youthful when I go to work, ya know. :yeah:

I'd dislike colouring my hair all the time more than the grey hairs. Why don't you let it grow out and see what you look like al la au naturel. You might like it, it'll be way less trouble and it's healthier (no chemicals going on your head every month).

I dare you to be yourself. :)

Don't dye my hair and they are coming in more & more.Heck I've been living life and if I get to the point where they bother me maybe I'll do something about em. Truth be told I like the way they catch the light. ;)
Hope you find what makes you feel comfortable.:)

I do understand your point. I actually have not colored my hair for a while and when I did it was only a rinse. This is the first time I used an actual dye. And I don't intend to use it every month. Just wanted to try it. I'll go back to my safer "rinses" after this. I'm afraid of the dye chemicals too.

I admire and am grateful to those brave women who dare to be themselves, because they are the ones who perhaps will change the way society views "old" women. I like creating the mystery though. It always keeps the guessing alive, particularly when it may not be to my advantage to look "grey".

Don't underestimate the power of doing things cuz it makes you feel better - THe old saying "if you are upset with a person or genuinely dislike them - look for and give them a gift and see if it changes how YOU feel about them " applies here.

This is something I have always practiced and I have the kids do it too!!

Well, I have to admit that me and Miss Clairol are good buddies! I only color my hair about 3 times a year and keep it close to my natural color so the roots are not so obvious. I have also noticced though that I am about 1/3 of the way gray now without haircolor of some sort and I just do not deal with that well. I think it goes back to seeing my mother go gray and it looked horrible and made her look washed out when she had half gray hair and half black hair. She now however has beautiful silver gray hair that sparkles in the sun and it looks great.:D I just want the "trip" to the total gray to be a gentle one for me so I color.

Kimmie, I have been turning gray since I was 20, I can live with that, but the thinning !!!!!!!!!! I am no so fond of. I am taking after my mother i guess. At least she never went completely bald.
What choice do we have but to look at the bright side.:)
