    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.

    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.

    My Graying Is Well Underway.

    I have friends who color their hair and it looks very attractive and they look years younger. I admire them. I just do not wish to color my own. I dislike the idea of the chemical composition in most coloring agents but mostly, I like the way my gray looks. My husband is also...

    Oh! To hear these people moan!

    Perhaps they would rather lose their hair at 22 like my 2d brother! Yup, all of it... Me, on the other hand, took after my paternal grandmother. By 35 her hair was a beautiful, glowing silver. Especially out in the sunlight. It would absolutely blind you!!! So, when I...

    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

    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.

    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.
