Re: Graying hair versus coloring

My SO has salt and pepper hair, and a beard that is greying even faster than his hair. It was like that when we met and fell in love, so I don't really tend to notice it to be honest. That's just his hair and beard color. It's him, the him I fell in love with. I find him attractive and sexy and distinguished looking just as he is - otherwise I wouldn't have started a relationship with him.

Honestly, from old photographs I know he was a handsome man before his hair started going grey, but I find him incredibly appealing just as he is now. I think I'd be pretty freaked out if he were to start coloring his hair or beard.

Just make sure the carpet matches the drapes ...

Funny enough I have maybe one or two gray hairs on my head but my beard is littered with gray hairs everywhere.

Re: Graying hair versus coloring

My answer is that colored hair looks way better than gray hair; for men and women. Gray hair definitely makes us all look much older---no doubt about that.

But for some reason, it looks weird when men obviously dye their gray hair.

Maybe it's cultural; we're sort of conditioned to think that men shouldn't be concerned about gray hair----that it's vain, or effete in some way????

That's my two part answer. But from the other responses, it seems like most women do like gray hair.

Re: Graying hair versus coloring

My husband's hair is somewhat long for the corporate world. For a while there was a solitary long white hair. Now it's accompanied with a few others. He says 'It's good, isn't it..' He says it's all his wisdom coming to surface. I like discovering the changes in him.

For myself though, I prefer to conceal my wisdom with shades of brunette.

Enjoy your wisdom, TX-SC.

Re: Graying hair versus coloring

I have gray at my temples and am 65 years old. It makes me look distinguished. In some countries, men and women are dying their hair grey. I used coloring at first but it was a pain to do and really did not do a good job of covering all the gray so I let it be.

Many prefer to drown in a pool of their own morality rather than seek the safety of a different morality.
