    Peace and Blessings Family,

    Now that i'm over 25, getting a little bit of gray / grey and stuff ... i've noticed i'm almost alone with it!

    It's rare to see a woman with gray hair these days, at any age.

    Yes, there are a few here and there, but the vast majority of women are not graying anymore! :eeek:

    Do you dye your gray / grey?

    This question is for Brothers too, as i know yall can be kinda caught up in such things as well.

    Sisters and Brothers ... do you dye your gray / grey hair?

    We won't tell anyone ... if you tell us ... QQ ... :)

    I've never dyed my hair, but the more i get (and i got a lot) ... the more i think i oughtta !!! :eeek:

    How about you?

    :heart:

    Hey, gray can be beautiful too. I don't know exactly what your grays look like, but they can be very pretty.

    I personally have plucked one or two, but in the end, I'm stuck with the man in the mirror. They'll come back anyway, so I'll just have to get used to them.

    I don't have a lot of gray (yet); but I don't think I'll be dyeing it.

    I happen to like gray hair. I think it's pretty. There's just something about a "salt and pepper" head that is attractive and sophisticated and regal to me.

    To each his or her own but I like seeing it on men and women.

    Now, yeah, I say that NOW; but I might change my mind when it's MY head lookin' more white than brown. :lol:

    In my personal opinion I think women (African American in particular) with salt & pepper hair is amazing (that can be because I'm attracted to older women though lol). I believe it to be one of the stages of beauty that shouldn't be denied but appreciated. As a young brother who is about to touch 40 in less then 2 years I have one gray hair and I'm looking for the others to make it way to the top.

    There are different stages of beauty but that stage for some reason is the most unappreciated of them all:

    This is beautiful: - but we make everything look beautiful

    When I get to the point when my hair turns that natural color I will leave it because whoever I attract if still single then they will love that aspect of me as well.

    Peace

    I'm only 21 and many of my hairs are gray, actually. Yeah, I've been told of deficiencies before, but that doesn't seem to be the case as my diet isn't in imbalance. :) I've even been told sunflower seeds prevent gray hairs, and I eat plenty of those, but that never worked either.

    Anyhow, I never minded them, and am not ashamed, so I wouldn't dye them, no. They're beautiful, and speak to my character, I believe.:D
