Everyone in my family, except my husband, wants me to

Get highlights in my hair to hide the grays that are coming in. My plan is to grow it out naturally and just accept the gray. But they all think I’m crazy for that.

Do what you want. It is your body. :honeybee::honeybee::honeybee:

My brother colours his hair to cover up the grey. I don’t. I’ve had some comments about maybe I should do it too.

My brother looks 10 years younger than he is though, as a result.

I’m starting to wonder if I look bad. I’m just not sure. I can’t afford to keep highlights up, and I can’t color my hair anymore because I react to the dye now. I think I’ll still grow it out naturally but I wish my family didn’t hate it so much

I have a friend who is going gray. I don’t think it ages her because her skin is still young. She actually has an appearance of being prematurely gray.

It’s your hair; do what you want.

My aunt has grey hair, and she dyes it pink and purple quite a lot. Looks pretty cool

When I go gray, I’m going to dye my hair fun colors every month. Like my older neighbor.

I like gray hair, don’t see a reason why anyone should try and cover it.

My husband says he likes my silver streaks in my hair. Some of mine are gray, some silver, and a few are white

I’m going grey fast.

I don’t plan on covering them, ever.

When you get older, dyes look harsh against your skin and it’s obvious you color your hair.

I don’t want to look like that.

To me, it makes you look even older.

I guess if you’re going to color your hair, go lighter,

But I wouldn’t do it.

Silver hairs are beautiful.

I think you’re right @goldenrex I have seen some people with dye jobs over gray who look good, but many times it’s harsh like you say

What color is your hair naturally, @Zannah?

Dark blonde with red @goldenrex

Yeah,

That’s going to be hard to replicate.

I’d go natural,

I’m sure your hair is beautiful.
