Ok ladies, some people are funny about admiting to this,.. but how many of you dye your hair??? Not for the flash of something different, but to cover those nasty grays??? Reason why I am curious, this has been a hot topic in my family for awhile. I am the youngest,...37ish or so,..anyway, my hair is going silver and it is going quick. Some people gray earlier than others,...I am one of the unfortunate ones. I dyed my hair for about 5 yrs on and off and then I decided not to do it anymore. I did not like what it was doing to my hair. I have natural curly hair and the chemicals had fried my hair something awful. So I let it grow out,...it was salt and peppered (mostly salt!),..I thought it looked good and my hair finally felt "normal" again. My family though, thought I was nuts! They kept riding me and riding me to color my hair. They kept saying,"It makes you look sooooo old!" Believe me, I am not one to care about what others think so much, but this is all I heard for a year. So I broke down and dyed it,...worst mistake I have made in a long time! My hair feels like crap now, completely out of hand unruly,...SO. I am planning to grow it out once again and getting it back to normal,..with no dye! My question is, Am I missing something here??? Is it a bad thing for a younger woman to have gray/silver hair?? Why is it such a BIG deal for women to let their hair just be "natural"?
