    I'm 40 and another one who's been going grey for nearly 20 years already. I've been colouring my hair for fun since my teens but we're past the blend-it-in foils stage and for the last few years I'd reverted to the home colour every 4 weeks but unless I go dark the greys are still fighting through!

    I just had ice-blonde foils put in with the plan of growing out to be a "young grey". I'm not sure if it will work as my natural colour grows mousey but goes honey blonde with some sun, so I may need to blue rinse it so I dont just look dirty blonde. Bit scared by the prospect but figure it's the best time to try while 'grey' is fashionable amongst the young whipersnappers.

    My plan is to let the greys come out too. My hair is light-medium brown and I have probably 10% grey at this stage but concentrated at the front and a nice stripe. I'm 34, I'm not going to be a slave to grey regrowth for the next several decades. As I said in previous post I do have highlights but not to cover grey just to give my hair a lift.
    My mum has black hair and started going grey in her 20s she has never dyed her hair and has it in a short pixie cut for about 30 years now (she's 61) and it's a very striking (if somewhat severe) look. My DH is 41 and 80% grey (black naturally) and he would prefer I let my hair go natural so that helps!
