    • Although you all will hate me....my heritage develops very little grey/white hair with aging. My mom, at 75 has maybe a dozen. I do not have any, but with a head of blond highlighted hair, they would be easy to disguise. This is a much more difficult transition for you gorgeous brunettes, reds, dark haired women.  

      If I had to address the issue...I would color. I’m just not mentally ready to have that look yet.

    • I started graying early.  As a matter of fact when I gave birth at 31 even my pubes were gray- I imagine I was probably the only one in L&D unshaven and gray.  Doesn’t bother me a bit!  I love it.  I think it is sexy and have gotten numerous compliments on my strategically placed gray- some have even thought I colored it on purpose.  I suppose it helps that people always think I am younger than I really am.
      Ultimately the decision is based on your pride, love and acceptance of who you are. My hope is that you love all of you—Even if “you” change shades. happy

    • I started graying in my mid 20’s. At 44 I’m almost completely gray. Have I learned to deal with it? Not yet. I keep a stock of black hair color.

      Lately I’ve been trying to see how long I can go before I dye it. Right now I’m at about 2“. I wear it up so it looks more like a streak.

      One day I’ll be proud of them. God knows I’ve earned every one! For now my closet is stocked!

    • Mine doesn’t come in gray, it’s more like WHITE.
      Started at age 28 after having baby #1.  Downhill ever since. If I didn’t color it every 8 weeks, it’d be a bad scene.

    • 4-6 weeks, I wish!! I’ve had to touch my roots up about every 10 days for the past 5 years. My hair grows really fast and in that time it has grown a quarter of inch or more and starts looking really bad with contrast of white/gray against dark brown. I tried going a little lighter but it just doesn’t look right on me. It is so irritating to dye all the time but I refuse to go fully gray at 46. enough about me...

      If you only have a few grays I would recommend the highlights, some of the girls at work do that and it is really pretty when you are dark headed and get two other dark highlights.

    • I will NEVER be Grey!  And I will never cut my hair real short and get a perm!  hehe  I think that should be part of the “when I grow old I will wear purple....” mantra! (from The Red Hat Society) hehe      

      So there will never be a transition for me - just appointments at the hair salon for my weekly dye job (if that’s what it takes!)

    • My wake-up for the gray was when my Mom had a brain hematoma and we (my sisters) and I shaved our heads in support (about 2 years ago). As it grew out it was mostly white, salt and pepper, heavy on the pepper. I ended up going back to black because I just felt that it made me look too old.

      I have an earlier post about gray but the bottom line is when/if you‘re ready to go all the way go for it!  

      My Mom ended up going red and keeping her hair short after her surgery. I told her that I didn’t think I would shave my head again, but you know what...... I would, in a heart beat, for any of my loved ones. I found some really cool scarves and hats!

      The bottom line is I am ME and proud of it, no matter what color my hair is!!

    • I’ve been dying my hair Blonde since I was a teenager, and was starting to get grey hair in my early 20’s.  It’s not that noticeable with Blondes, then I highlight in streaks with a lighter color so it looks like a salon did it, and I use Garnier Nutrisse Lightest Natural Blonde, LOVE IT!
