  • I like the look of gray hair.
  • As a man, I would never dye my hair. I have a good head of hair, I have earned every gray hair I have, and I am keeping it that way!
  • definatly keep it, otherwise, you get to the point where everyone knows you are grey underneath, but you can't bear to let go. Plus, grey hair is really nothing to be ashamed of, it's just a new phase of your life, requiring new styles etc. If you are greying very fast, and want to make the change more gradual, then highlight your hair for a while.
  • If I was over 45 I'd probably keep it, but I might dye it to a nicer shade of grey if I didn't like the one I had.
  • Keep it. I've started to get some and my wife wants me to dye it, but I don't think I ever will. Doesn't matter to me if it's a man or woman, I think grey hair is fine.
  • Keeping my hair in the first place would be nice.
  • If it's gray throughout then keep it.If it's just gray in a patch or two,then I'd dye it. That is my opinion. But really you should do whatever makes you feel the best. :)
  • Keep it. I love the shinyness, texture, and metallic-ish-ness of grey hair.
  • I say, keep it, your earned it :)
  • finaly starting to turn grey. see no reason to change it.
  • i think in a man salt and pepper hair is sign of a distinguished gentlemen. woman i think to keep a youthful apperance should dye its all a personal preferance.i couldnt tell you what my natural color is...lol
  • Right now I yank the few strands out. I guess I will begin to color it later.
  • Defy the youth craze and celebrate who you are with all the grey hairs that make you who you are.
  • I used to dye my hair very dark for years, but stopped when I started getting more and more grey. I didn't like how it looked growing in and I didn't want to have to dye it more often as dye can build up. I do occasionally have my hair guy put in some lighter highlights now to help blend the grey into my natural color.
  • I resisted the urge to dye until it started to bother me. Now I dye, but match my natural color within a shade or two. (They say to go a shade lighter because you naturally lose pigment as you age and your original color may be too dark for your skin.) Do what makes you feel best about yourself.
  • I keep it a while , then dye it. I don't really care either way, I just like a change once in a while.
  • as long as its kept tidy and smooth i think grey hair looks great. go for a steely grey if you colour it. it makes you look like you are aging gracefully.
  • I think I must be lucky. My normal color is a very golden strawberry blond and it appears that the ones turning are going from golden to a very bright silver/white...not too bad. I pulled a few of them for a while...but it's slow enough that I'm getting used to the idea. I'm not much into the whole chemical dye concept...I suppose if I got a really good acting opportunity and they insisted I dye instead of wearing a wig..I'd consider doing it..but usually they like my hair just as it is...long and thick, easy to go up, back or down as the part dictates.
  • dye it.. or else it's too hard to lie about still being 29!
  • When I start to grey, I am going to keep it. I want to age naturally and beautifully.
  • I dye mine and love it. My hair started turning white when I was 21 and I didn't want to look older than what I really was.
  • Men Keep it, Women Dye it, but it is a personal preference. my husband was silver by the age of 21 and had the thickest most beautiful hair. Everyone commented on it
  • I'd keep it grey or dye it some unnatural color. I like how women look with short (natural) grey hair. I dunno, maybe that's just me.
  • What ever you do dont get some cheap dye because it will make your hair fall out. P.S if you place a bad rating give a reason in the comments please thank you
  • Keeping it -- I don't like to put chemicals on my head that may be dangerous.
  • KEEP IT!!
  • Blend it in. Gray hair is aging and dying can be even more so....after 50 or so. Two well cared for women I know went sort of blond. My naural color is too dark for that but blending my gray with a dark blonde or light ash brown semi-permanant color just slides it in and looks natural. My gray is very white and sort of skunk like on top of my head. Be sure to check whatever you try in bright sunlight. That holds true for makeup as well.
  • As I think white hair the usual stage after grey and salt n pepper is nicer looking keep dying your hair for a few more years, while checking that the pigmentation of your hair has completely stopped.
  • I would either dye or shave grey, but would keep white.
  • Dying it. I live for hair dye.
  • Keep whatever is natural. Why risk any potential problems from covering your head with chemicals.
  • It isn't fair, but it is true: If you are female, grey says you are old. If you are male, it says you are wise. I know...it isn't fair, but it's true. I'm a professional hairstylist of 27 years. I have worked for L'Oreal Professional Lines, and Wella Professional. Statistically, you will go further if you get rid of the grey. However, it is all about how you feel inside. Just dye the outside!
  • I would keep it. It's a hassle keeping up hair color. Just take good care of it and it can be really pretty.
  • Dying my gray roots is a necessity.
  • I think grey hair can be beautiful especially if it is more white than grey.
  • I've always had reddish brown colored hair & got my first 2 greys at 16. At 36 I color it because my grey is like a dull grey. If it was pretty I wouldn't mind but where I'm so pale I don't like it on me. So I just help nature along & keep my color. Highlighted it once & I thought I looked fake, where it was so light & I'm very pale with freckles.
  • dye it.
  • Im 23 and I dont have greys yet so I really dont know how it makes you feel to have greys but I think grey hair is gorgeous on older women. When I see a women with grey hair I appreciate them and look up to them. They are older wiser and have been thru more. I dont think you should be ashamed of that. On the other hand if you start to get greys in your 20s or 30s I think its fine to feel like you need to cover it up with dye.
  • im only 25 so hopefully its a few years away yet. i have heard people can go grey in their twenties though. i would definitly dye my hair though.
  • For me dying is the best thing i could have done. Fairish mousy coloured hair with a grey base looks crap. My husband suggested dyeing as he had just witnessed me bent double in the potatoe patch and he felt sorry for me with my grey bits! I am now a white bleached blonde and I look 20 years younger. He now cuts and bleaches my hair It looks great. Well, I'm happy.
  • When your hair starts showing your age its time to take action. Although grey hair can look elegant and even sexy particularly it seems on men, for most of us its just one more reminder that the years are passing. to read more on this visit http://ezinearticles.com/?Grey-Hair-Covered&id=2350737
  • Grey hair in a mustache sometimes looks like snot one forgot to wipe away in which case I'd say dye it. Overall I'd say whichever makes one happier.
  • My friend, hair dye. I wish like my father I was silver. But I'm grey when - so I am well acquainted with hair color.
  • Keeping it. I have earned every single one of these white tresses and I am proud of 'em!
  • My greys are two solid blocks on the side... so I dye my hair.....for the moment anyway : )
  • I dye it and highlight it.
  • dye it
  • Whatever makes you feel most comfortable!
  • Sometimes grey hair really looks good. When it doesn't thank goodness for the dye. Mine looks weird, it actually has zero color and is as clear as cellophane. I have thick hair and when the roots come out, it looks like I'm going bald. Why me, God?
