    • I’m having my stylist do my hair a little lighter than she used to. It helps with that line between gray roots and dark brown hair. But she says that at some point she can’t go any lighter without doing it blond - ish. And she says that will probably be brassy. She recommended going with a semipermanent that will eventually wash away and, over time, as we cut it, going gray will be more gradual.

    • NEVER, NEVER, NEVER!!! estatic  Or at least for as long as I care about it!  Maybe when I’m like 80 or something, which is 40 years away!  WOW, that really does sound like a long time!

    • Even though I have embraced my gray hair, my youngest daughter still tries to talk me into coloring my hair. I refuse to do it. I love the look of my white strands and besides I feel I have been through so much, and learned so much as I am aging gracefully, and I deserve to see my wisdom strands at the top of my head. My oldest daughter who is my hair stylist says I have a natural halo lol, I’d like to agree with her lol.

    • Ever since my son passed away, I stopped coloring my hair and let it go gray.  I have only a stripe up front and that’s all.  I wish it can be faster.   (can you tell... it is on my right side)

    • Neicy and Chinadoll, if my hair were graying so gracefully and beautifully, I’d never color!  You both look GREAT!!!!

      After this week’s disaster with my hair color I may stop coloring it altogether.  Yikes!  I’m fire engine red not the mellow goldy red I’m supposed to be.

      Not sure when I will quit coloring, but I will at some point.  I don’t want to be sixty or eighty and still trying to convince people I’m a red head.

    • Cynthia, I worked with a lady that gradually let hers grown out in the same way. I took her about 8 months of hair cuts and lighter colors until it was all gray. She looked beautiful with it.
      My hair stylist has told me that I am 100% Silver now. It’s a beautiful silver but I still continue with the color and highlights. I have decided, as long as I can afford to keep it color, I will for 4 mores years. When I turn 50, I think I will be ready to embrace this beautiful silver hair of mine.
      My grandmother’s hair was silver, not gray..it was so beautiful and shiny.

    • My ponytail was gray, and I got tired of how it looked. It looked like I dipped it in silver paint, so I decided to color it brown-black. I left a few grays in there because they frame my face (besides, my eyebrows are gray and I’ll never dye them). Now it won’t last for long, my gray never stays dyed for long, but that’s ok, it took a few years off my overall look.

    • Joe and I will retire and move to the mainland in five years. I’ll be 55. I’m thinking that may be a good time to have my hair all silver. New neighborhood, new friends, new people, new me.estatic

    • I stopped dying my hair for about six months and found that it is about 80% brown and 20% gray.  The gray hairs are frizzier.  I think I’ll dye it again and keep it up for a few more years.  Maybe I’ll stop when I’m 60.  My hair doesn’t look nice like Neicy’s and Cheria’s.

    • I stopped coloring it a while back, and I’m just letting it do its thing, it doesn’t show up on pics, I just look at it as free highlights.

    • I let mine grow out but it still had a lot of brown and some silver. My friend talked me into coloring it blonde again. I decided to go for it too! I am not sorry and will keep it blonde for a while. Don’t know when I’ll go natural yet. I’ll be 62 and don’t have plans yet. Maybe when I am 89!!!heartestaticestatic
