quote author=bikerbraid The reality is...... The picture you have of what you will look like with that gorgeous all white/silver/gray hair is not how you look when it starts to come in. Some hair never gets to that pretty, all one color stage.


So far my hairline is going grey and it does look faded, even though my herbal rinse blends in the greys a bit.  I cling to the facts that:  1.  any "in between" stage is awkward, whether growing or greying  2.  My maternal grandmother (and I take after my mom's side of the family hair-wise) had lovely, pure white hair.  So, I live in hope.  And I hope no-one thinks I"m putting down anyone for dying their hair; the only reason I don't is I"m too lazy to keep up with the roots.  If it weren't for that, I'd have been a redhead for years!   Wink

13bodies;  I think many who are coloring their hair wishes they could stop or never would have started.  You have a wonderful goal and a good reason to let the natural transition of your hair occur.  In my mother's case - I think she made the right decision to color.  Since my hair is much lighter than hers, I have let the silver/grey intermingle with my light brown/dark blonde.  It is certainly more noticable now than it was a few years ago, but I think I will be able to live with it and appreciate it. 

Coloring or not is a personal decision, just as growing or not.  Thankfully, everyone here is allowed their own ideas and opinions.  Grin

i think it all depends ... grey is pretty dull while white is sparkle. i've seen a lady with very dark hair and it had a nice sparkle (in her cas i think it was a silvery grey but in contrast with her almost black hair it was neat. it also didn't come in streaks but it seemed nearly like she had put powdered pearl ino her hair.

I like grey hair in all of its forms- whether the hair is one-color or just streaked. I think that even a little gray can give dignity to a person if she is otherwise well groomed. I know that today's society in general appreciates sexy look more than dignified look, but I don't agree with society here.  Grin
  My mother was planning a while ago going gray, and she even made appointment for changing color, but ended up just touching her roots with usual brown after beginning to feel uncomfortable at last moment. I'm happy that she dared to change her mind as she seems to like her brown hair better again after almost changing it. She started to color when she started graying and now she says that she's completely gray beneath the color. I'm so used to see her in colored hair that I've difficult time picturing her as gray. Her skin is naturally smooth for a person of her age, and I think that colored hair makes her look younger. I'm not entirely sure, is that better than looking old, though Wink .

But I think that coloring/graying naturally is a very personal issue, and everyone should be able to decide that without pressure to any direction.

that must be a hard situation to deal with. my mother is the complete opposite. she supports whatever i want to do with hair. if i were in that situation i would make it clear that im not changing my hair for anyone and that it hurts my feelings when you say things like that to me. whats that saying... if you dont have anything nice to say dont say anything at all. i agree she may just be jealous. try not to take it personally. maybe give her a history of women in history before the 1920's who had long hair and maybe she will back off a little.

we all support you here whatever you chose as long as it makes you happy  Smiley
