    Default Who has grey hairs?

    Enough to warrant dying your hair?

    Mine are increasing and I don't like it

    Do you have a plan of attack, or are you proudly flying the grey flag?

    At the moment I'm dying my own hair (browns/reddish browns) at home every 6 weeks or so, but it's starting to feel pretty dry (probably because I've got old blonde foils I'm dying over).

    I feel a trip to the hair salon is in order, but what do to? Inspiration needed.

    That's what foils are for I'm naturally dark brown but figure I might as well go lighter to combat the greys.

    Keep dying lol.

    I don't think I have grey hair but mine is being dyed red the last 12 months or so. Or maybe longer.

    Use some argan/Moroccan oil. Also try a hair mask.

    Use a protein shampoo/conditioner/treatment every once in a while too.

    I would go to the hairdresser for a trim (I need to do this) as my ends are getting dry.

    Going grey here - however because my hair is auburn I'm actually going blonde - so kind of cool except I know it's grey 😞

    That said I think do whatever makes you feel happy and confident!

    I think if you don't and have kids there is something wrong there. I've got a few and small patch under my dark hair but not enough to warrant colouring as yet much to the disgust of my hairdresser whom I'm with now so she can wash and blow dry before I head to labor ward in a few hours

    Yep. I will go grey when I'm all grey. Actually considering dying my hair grey just to help combat the issue 😂

    No greys hairs here yet but I figure when they start coming through I'm just going to leave them. I don't dye my hair so probably won't bother starting haha

    I am naturally blond, and I have never died my hair. I will proceed to go grey/ or white as and when my hair decides to do that. All my girlfriends who have darker hair have been dying their hair for years. Do what ever makes you feel best. marie.

    Yes. My brother, father and I developed grey hair in our mid twenties. We all have dark(ish) brown hair, I am a tad lighter (Mum is dark blonde and still has no greys ).

    I usually do a reddish brown (my natural childhood colour) dye at home, but the greys are getting so bad I am going to have to start going lighter instead.

    I'm quite grey and started to go that way in my mid 20's ... Thanks genetics!!

    I dye it plain old boring 5.0 brown so that if I'm ever caught short on time or money for the salon I can quickly whack a at home colour through to cover up how terribly grey I am for my age. I think I'll stick to that plan until belly bub is born.

    It's such a curse!!
