I haven't pulled any silver hairs out, but they are much more noticeable when I put my hair up.  They are along the front and underneath (temple area), so when I do any kind of an up-do they are out in the open for all to see 8).  As much as I love to put my hair up and can't wait to do more as my hair grows, it does make me think twice about it  Undecided.

I've just (past 2.5 months) noticed my hair, too has begun to turn -

It's still in first gear - I've spotted about 8-10 2 inch long very wavy/almost curly silver hairs in the first 1.5 inches at my forehead.

The last section of bang/fringe - less than 1/2 inch wide bears the brunt of the new color - and it is REALLY visible in my medium warm brown hair.  There may be more than I'm noticing - but as the remainder of my hair is "up" 98% of the time - I don't often scrutinize it as I closely as I do the front.  (Thank goodness the last section of "bangs to grow out" now can be braided into the rest and be up in a bun!  finally!)

Note to self:
NEVER, NEVER, NEVER CUT THICK BANGS AGAIN!!!!

ok, just needed to get that out of my system.

I don't mind the silver hairs - Though sometimes it looks like I've had glitter sprinkled into my hair... at least they're growing - and hey - if they stay wavy/curly - and I keep getting more of the dark auburn that has come in since my son was born in '88 - I just may end up with thick-ish hair after all, and say goodbye to the fine!  Grin

(I'm still dreaming or silver streaming from the temples, though..... call me silly - but I'd love to see it!) Roll Eyes

I have alot of gray hair,and I love it.I don't pluck them never have.I've heard that some people do.
I have to say I get gray hair in my black eyebrows and those I pluck.The hair on my head can go gray.......but not my eyebrows.
I seem to get the most comments on my gray hair from men.As if I could care what men think.
They always say things like "I wish my wife would let her gray show"or"its nice to see a woman with natural hair color.
Hey I don't care if someone likes coloring their hair,thats up to them.And really none of my business unless asked.
But I personally don't want gray roots.even if  I didn't like gray hair I don't think I'd color it because I'm just to lazy to keep the roots up.

Welcome Jackie!  Congratulations on feeling good about your natural hair color.  In today's society, where everyone is trying to look younger, people almost expect you to color your hair to hide the grey/silver.  I've always felt that if you are comfortable with yourself, and feel young, you will look young, regardless of hair color.

Go Jackie!!  I too am letting my hair "do its own thing" regarding color, after years of highlights/lowlights &, more recently, semi-permanent colors to blend it all together, before I decided I could no longer be bothered.

My hair is now just below shoulder length and it is totally back to its natural color, which is a mixture of dark blonde & light brown underneath, with a sun-lightened top layer and a definitely gray area around my temples.  And I love it!  Like you, I too receive compliments about the color, with many people not realising that the lighter bits around my face are actually gray & not color achieved in a salon.  Other women will tell me that they wish they had the courage (courage??!!) to let their hair grow in the gray naturally. 

And I never have to worry about "roots" showing - ever!  Soooo much simpler!

My mother always said that if you pull a white hair seven more will grow and since childhood I have always had white hairs growing just at the front to one side. I watched a television serial once called the Mallen Streak and thought it looked very attractive so I started pulling out my white hairs but nothing happened so I guess that blows that theory out of the water.

Jules,

  We have very similar tastes in hair color.  I think the blonde forlocks look really cool on rdheads and brunettes.  It seems a lot of ladies are coloring a bold blonde streak in the front now.  It looks so bold to me!

Right on, BikerBraid!  My young students make me feel young and i have a very upbeat and perky personality, so I feel I look a lot younger, at times, than many of my cohorts who color their hair.

I love my tinselhair and wouldn't pluck out a single grey hair!  I don't want to damage my hair follicles or cause damage anywhere!  I am just too cautious now that I am finally growing out my tinselhair!  I cherish every single silvery strand.

Working with young people, does tend to "keep" you young at heart.  Never let anyone make you feel old. 

As for coloring hair - many of the box hair colors, leave the hair with such a monotone color that I think it detracts and makes the hair/person look older.
