What age do you think you'll stop coloring out the gray in your hair?

I color about once a month because the gray stays only at the roots in the front but I see friends a few years younger than me very salt and pepper and it looks soooo good.

  • To be honest Im far from it buut In my opinion some women look really good with gray in their hair. I guess for me it would depend on what color I was wearing at the time and where its coming in like you are saying for you.

  • I do not have to dye it yet, but I don't think I will ever quit once I do. I just saw an old lady with peach colored hair, I thought it was sooo cute. I have red hair and if I go grey/white... I will totally dye it peach :p

  • I'm not gray yet, but I do dye my hair and don't think I'll ever stop. I certainly won't stop just becauseI hit a certain age.

  • I look much younger when I have my hair colored and I will continue until I am really old....maybe about 90??? LOL. I plan on living a long healthy life and I see no advantage to looking old and gray!

  • Maybe when more of my hair goes grey, instead of just the stripe in the middle, LOL. It won't be for awhile.

    My DH has the George Clooney grey on the sides and I think it looks good on them, but he feels self-concious about it and doesn't like for anyone to see it. He's 34 (I'm 40).
