Going Gray...would you dare?

    My beard is grey. The top of my head is ..."flesh" colored. I refuse to cover the grey, or get a rug or whatever. I am who/what I am.

    JD, nice comment about your mom. I had a friend a few years ago whose response to getting grey was to dye her wild mane silver. You could spot on the street from about three blocks away.

    FHN: nice pictures. Don't worry about the grey. Natural is much better than whatever comes out of a bottle.

    Fh....your skin looks beautiful, infact you look like you are closer to 30 in those picks...No special stuff needed for you!

    I bought very expensive makeup etc. for the last ten years and I have figured out the grocery store stuff does the same thing.

    I stopped slathering on the estee Lauder, etc....it has done nothing.

    I have stayed out of the sun, so I have no eye wrinkles.....not to say I don't have others.

    Take care, .....you are absolutely gorgeous!

    I stopped coloring by 30 and had a nice Elizabeth Taylor salt & pepper going.

    Completely gray before 40, now at 50 a total Q-tip head.

    Thank you, Jeff and Re. That cam really does edit out the blotches and lines, etc. I used to use Nivea CoQ10, but they stopped making it. The Principal Secret is skin care products and they don't cost a lot. I'm interested to see if they will just smooth out the fine stuff and clear up the splotches. I doubt I'll keep doing it. Just curious.

    Bithe, did you have Elizabeth's black hair to begin with? I loved her coloring.

    I've got some grey bits, mostly at the side ... I gave dying it a try ("touch of grey" for men, LOL) but really can't be bothered - the girls at work said I looked better with the grey and they seemed sincere (or at least they are really good at not laughing, he he he)

    Simon, most men look distinguished with graying hair. Post a pic, please.


    I have some gray..I decided to leave it..I earned every one of those gray hairs!!.............................LOL!!...OUTLAW

    Got plenty of silver hairs peeking out of the dark ones in my beard. Only a few on my head. I like them.

    I've had people ask me if I high lighted my hair. I'm like, "Nooo, this is just gray hair!" And one co-worker said, "Are you sureeeee??"
