Don't know but it's not fair. My DH is almost mostly grey and wants to dye his hair and everyone yells at him and tells him how handsome he is with his salt and pepper hair. I get a hand full of grey hair and everyone tells me I'm getting old and better invest in some hair dye. Really big double standard!

So true, which is why I get my hair colored.  I started getting grey hair when I was in my twenties.

Isn't that the truth! Just like how there's gray haired male news reporters on TV, but you'll never see a gray haired female reporter.

I had nice auburn hair as a kid, that turned a dull dark brown by the time I was a teenager. I started dyeing it red when I was in high school, and dyed it off and on until I had my son, my second child, at 29.

I started to get a ton of gray hairs while I was pregnant with him, and now that I'm 38, it's turning more and more gray. I hate the grays!

I've been dyeing it regularly for about 9 years now. My hair grows fast, so I end up having to dye it once a month, to cover the roots and grays.

I colored my hair for many years. After I turned 45, I decided that it was time to embrace my inner silver fox.

Do you really believe that women look old when they are gray, or do you think that you look old?

The same reason a couple can be on the same diet...the man will lose 10 lbs overnight....the woman will gain the 10 lbs he lost.

Interesting! Do you think that this is internal to you, or based on cultural influences. Is Meryl Streep really unattractive with gray hair? Or Jamie Leigh Curtis?
