OMG Hadn't thought of that angle. lol Takes all kinds, I guess.

Meh, there's organic, but it is impossible to match color.

You end up with, "No play, for Mr. Gray" incongruity.

Also, she wouldn't dye anyway. Why should she?

I wonder if these young women who die their hair gray match the carpet with the drapes? Would that be freaky? lol

Re: Hair Color

Men are kind of clueless what women go through.

I am 33 and am grey. I dye my hair every 7 weeks and itís fine for now; but I wonít be doing it for 20 years thatís for sure.

My friend is 36 and decided to stop dying her hair and sheís grey as well.

Re: Hair Color

I dye my bangs and a couple of side streaks pink, and the rest of my hair is long and brunette, my natural color. Thereís a picture on my profile if youíre curious. I get compliments all the time. But I live in Portland and itís very common here for people to have blue, green, purple, pink, etc.

I love how my hair looks but Iím fine with it if someone or even lots of people donít like it. Men respond well to it, but I suppose I would not be aware of men who donít like it because they just wouldnít respond to me at all.

If my hair was that nice bright white kind of gray I would not dye it at all, but mine isnít. Itís that flat steely gray color and looks really bad next to my face.

The bangs and side streaks are the only place Iím gray so thatís why I only dye those parts. But I would never do it all in pink because I personally think thatís just too much with the unnatural colors and plus it would be way too hard to maintain. The unnatural colors fade out much quicker than natural colors. I have to redo the pink every week. Itís not too much hassle though because itís only the bangs and streaks.

I play bingo with my mom at her retirement community with a bunch of elderly sweet ladies. Every time I go they all tell me they love my hair and that itís beautiful. Which kind of surprises me because I figured older people would not like it.

My mom likes the pink but she will mention if itís getting faded out like a little nudge to freshen it up again, lol. But when the color is new and vibrant she just gushes ďoh itís so pretty I love it whenever you do your colorĒ. Lol, moms.

I thought I remembered someone commenting on your hair once. I was wondering if you would respond. I was hoping. Thanks, hug.

Give me a few minutes. I've got some questions. Whether I dislike the gray or colors isn't the issue. I am nothing to you or anyone. I just want to understand. Yeah, not really any of my business. I couldn't hold my tongue any longer. be back in a few.

In this case, it would be for her husband to know. Also, if I were single and were to see silver or grey hair and a face about my age, I'd hit on THAT WOMAN ( NOT MY RELATIVE!!!! Pervert. ). Lots of blondes go silver early, and lots of Olde (pronounced old-ee)Yankee women get streaks of gray in their hair in their early 30's. Probably other ethnic groups, too.

My numbers are in the order your paragraphs.

1) I'll have to look some time. I can't remember if I've ever looked at your page. I probably did, but it's been a very long time if I can't remember. TBT is my friend and I don't look at his. Maybe I'm weird? lol

And, I don't doubt you get compliments. I'm asking why folks like those different colors. All I can glean from that paragraph is you do it because the men seem to like it.

2) Makes sense with what I figured above. What is the drive for you? Is it something with sci-fi or just that men in your area like it?

3) Yeah, I don't get the interest in any gray, but it's natural to become gray. I am becoming more gray. My beard is white. Well, what I have left. lol Maybe it's just because it's becoming more popular here and I'm not used to seeing it? I don't know.

4) I think it's the red shades that lose color the quickest? Makes sense. Would you feel less of something if you didn't have that pink? Would it make you feel old or out of touch or something?

5) I'm old. You must mean 70s and up at bingo? Now you've got me thinking of the stories of the blue hairs at bingo when I went back in the late seventies and with my first girlfriend because I couldn't yet go out with her on a regular date. They was nasty. I sat down and one got a guard to make me move. She always sat there. Then, I won something and those blue hairs were cussing at me... some under their breath and some aloud so I could hear. Sheesh what a bunch. I thought I might be torn limb from limb. lol Damn blue hairs. Oh, that's the dye they used in their hair because it went yellow over time. For some reason, it had a blue tint to it. haha

6)Moms are great.


My conclusion:

I don't know if I like it or not. I know no one cares what I like. I'm curious like a cat. ha I feel like it is a badge of some sort. I don't think most women give a damn about the unnatural stuff going into the environment when it comes to their attractiveness. I feel as if women keep it gray because they are advertising they are accomplished and secure women who do not need anyone. I feel like the colors are used to attract younger men and to advertise a woman's tutti fruitiness. She is saying she is not vanilla in the bedroom. I may be off. I'm just trying to understand.

I don't think that women dye their hair unnatural colors to attract "men," but unnatural colors do tend to attract different men than natural colors do.

In general, my personal reasons are

1) I am bored and want to see something different in the mirror and it's an easy, painless change.

2) I like the color xxx and think it's cool enough to wear every day for awhile

3) PRETTY AND SHINY OOH

4) I feel like a punk and since I'm a grown up, I do what I want.

That's a real one in your reflection. Without a follow, without a mention.
You really pipin' up on these-. You gotta be nice for what to these-?

Thanks, I am getting it.

3 made me actually lol. I think birds like pretty colors, too and looking in a mirror. jk lmao I'm terrible. Sorry.

4 was what I figured. At one time about around the time it was popular, I slicked my hair with some kind of wet look crap and tied a small pony tail in the back. Dumb, but I get it. I'm embarrassed to even post that. hahaha That was twenty-five years ago. I've changed a little.

Edit: Yes, I did have all my hair at one time and had young women run their fingers through it. Yes, it's true. Stop giggling like you don't believe it. hahaha That's funny.

Re: Hair Color

2. I just like the pink on me, I canít explain why. It is not to attract men, however, if I could never attract men I would abandon it and go back to all brunette. At one time, unnatural colors were kind an irreverent punk thing and thereís a little bit of an irreverent punk in me still, however where I live itís so mainstream to have unnatural color hair that no one else sees it that way. It suits me, without knowing me that is difficult to describe why. But everyone who knows me says it suits me, too.

4. If I didnít have pink, no I would not feel old or out of touch. Iíd just be brunette and my hair is long and healthy and I would attract just as many men, so really nothing would be different. Other than I probably would not get as many compliments.

5. Hair color has come a long way. It used to appear blue when applied to white hair because blue is the base color of brown hair dye. But back in the day they did not have it formulated like they do now so the color could not attach to white hair. So they would dye their hair and it may appear brown for a shampoo or two but then it would almost immediately appear blue. It is still very hard to make white hair a dark color, but they have come a long way with the dyes and it can be done. It takes quite a lot of upkeep. When it fades it doesnít look blue anymore usually but it may if it was several months and lots of shampoos without reapplying.

Yeah, I'd have to know you in person.

Blue is the base color of brown?? Who'd a thunk it? Not me. I think you got my point about the blue hair.

You know, it could be that I consider gray hair as someone's grandma and quite a bit older than me. Somewhere in my sub-conscious, I might find it unattractive because it would be like having sex with someone way older than me. Sure, it's something about me. I don't know what.

Re: Hair Color

I'm one of these women, and I find the general reactions to natural hair color utterly bizarre.

I've had many compliments out in public, but I've also had complete strangers walk past me on the street and make hurtful remarks.

Also, because of my thyroid, I kept my hair super short for years, as it would break when it got to a certain length. But now it's healthier and longer than it's been since elementary school, and I love it.

I don't color it because I don't want to.
