I My Hair Is Starting to Go Gray

    I Can'T Be The Only One...

    Does anyone else stand in the mirror and inspect their head for grays??. I color my hair a darker shade, so the regrowth really shows the gray and white hairs. I'm constantly inspecting my head and making sure they're only visible to me!!

    Phony Pony

    My hair is starting to go gray.  Actually it started turning a couple of years ago and it's silver.  I wear a phony pony from time to time, so I sometimes color my hair to match the pony.  Is that backwards?  :P

    I Like My Gray

    I noticed the grays coming in little by little a few years ago. First there was one, then another and another.I don't mind the grays. People already say I look too young for my age. Maybe this will make me look a little more mature.

    Gray Hair

    I am old enough to have gray hair, having said that, I will not wear my hair gray. I have tried to allow it to grow out and be proud of my age, but Noooo after looking at myself,for awhile, I have to color the gray.:) I look better without gray hair Bluebird

    Ms. Clairol Ain't Touching This Head!

    At first it really bothered me, but when I began to see family pictures of my elder relations, I realized that the women on my mother's side all went prematurely gray. It doesn't bug me anymore...Native ladies tend to gray nicely from what I have seen.

    A Race Against Time

    Yes, i'm getting a few gray hairs. But it looks like my hair is in a race against itself. Will it turn all gray first, or will it all fall out first. It is starting to get thin up on top. Lucky me.

    Going Gray

    Well all of my chest hair is gray, along with most of my facial hair. I had to shave my mustache because it made me look so old. Now the Gray is taking over up top also. I’m just thankful it is turning Gray and not loose. So bring on the Gray.
