Hi!  as a hair colorer, I've been color correcting forever.  I was born a red head - somehow it got confused as went brown and now grey.   I started with the easy box stuff but now have quite a few tries at the beauty supply store.  Whattya think?

Hair color would or do you color (de-graying counts ie Grecian formula)?  What about beard and or mustache?

I've never tried it.  I should say I don't have much hair left on my head, though and I don't need it for my facial hair as I shave it off, every morning!  Biggrin

At 68 I've had more 18-20 year old girls hug my neck and kiss my cheek than I did when I was their age.  I will keep the grey.

My temples are greying slowly, while the rest of my hair recedes. My moustache is salt & pepper. But my beard is nearly all silver. All natural for me.

Well ok I have to admit it that years ago I tried the "Just For Men" mustache and beard coloring. I noticed that my few gray hairs had become more than a few so my wife picked up a box for me. It did work as advertised and only took about 5 minutes for the hair to turn from gray back to brown. The only problem was that my hair grows so fast that after a week or so it looked gray again. Now it's so gray that I just don't worry about it anymore.

Looks like we'll see lots of natural grey hair and, should anyone color their hair, they will not admit it here.  Biggrin

At 67 I never have and don't think I ever will.  But I've been fortunate so far in that I don't have much in the way of grey on my head.  When I was a wee lad my hair was platinum blonde, but it darkened over time to light brown, but in recent years it's started to turn blonde again.  My facial hair, however, is ginger and the hair on the rest of me is blonde.

Like many here, I feel I have earned each and every grey hair. I do notice a lot more of the male TV folks and politicians are coloring their hair. It seems some shade of red is the color family of choice.

I've got greying temples and I'm pretty happy with the look. I don't think I'll ever colour my hair, as I like the salt and pepper look.

I am with the others in that I don't color. Have a fair amount of both hair and grey at 50 but keep my hair pretty short so it is not all that apparent and even if it were, as Bob said, I have earned every one.

Where it really gets noticeable is during my "No-Shave November". Each year my beard gets more and more grey to the point my wife referred to me as St. Nick for the entire month last year (beard grows FAST too).

I used to color years ago but my hair grows very fast so I don't do it anymore.  As long as my wife likes it that is all that matters. Women are more vain so most of them color their hair. I totally understand.
