    It looks great on some people, but I have no plans of going grey before my time! lol I also have very naturally dark (level 2) hair, so it would be a drastic change. When I do start to go grey, I plan to go lighter with highlights and maybe eventually go blonde.

    I’ve been touching up the grey in my hair to match my natural/ original colour (a medium blonde). The roots that come in are ‘salt and pepper grey’, much darker than my own hair. I’m not a fan of the ‘salt and pepper grey’ and also darker hair doesn’t suit me (tried dying it darker a few times when I was younger). If it could grow in a pretty silver grey I’d consider leaving it in.

    I often due my hair silver, it did go a deeper gray a time or 2 and I liked it.

    Some people pull this look off really well. I wouldn’t attempt it though because I believe it would severely damage my hair, plus I am not that trendy and do not think I can pull it off myself.

    My hair was pink for like 4 years, grey would be nothing.

    I like the look on some people. Especially when they add a wash of lavender or other shades. My hair already naturally has ash tones to it and is very fine. I’d be concerned that trying to go grey would do too much damage and would also make it really challenging to get back the natural tones of my hair which are, apparently, difficult to create with products (according to a stylist who gushed over my hair and made me a forever fan of his).

    I vote the option- I think its beautiful but not for me.

    I’m not old enough to go gray as of yet, (aside from the few strands I was born with), and I currently use henna on my red hair to dye it a darker shade of red, but once my gray comes in at 30%+, I’ll stop dying altogether and let nature take its course. My mom has these gorgous, striking silver hairs against her dark brown hair and she’s very self concious about it, and she says it’s because we were raised in different times and she’s lacking the comfort with kicking what she thinks “society” expects of her and her hair as she ages. If I’m lucky, I’ll get my great grandmother’s genes and start going platinum white in my 60’s. 😀 I plan on rocking hip length white hair when I’m older!

    No way would I voluntarily go gray before my time. But when I reach that age, I really hope to have elegant, long-ish, styled gray hair rather than just chopping it all off.

    sassy411 :  I’ve been seriously considering it. I’m not yet 30 and my hair is swimming in greys, and I have been covering it for years.

    I think I’d rock the salt and pepper look, or Cruella de Vil/grey middle stripe of hair look!!

    sassy411 :  I thought this was a trend like two years ago?  Anyway since I never colored my hair and don’t plan to, no I wouldn’t color it gray.  I think people shouldn’t care so much about what their head looks like.  If they feel like dying it to express themselves (any color), cool.  If they’re doing it to cover up reality because they’re ashamed of it, or can’t handle growing older or just need to be on trend even if they hate it, I’m just sad for their self esteem.  Most people wear their natural gray beautifully and I think it’s the way to go instead of hiding it.  But I’m totally up on a high horse too — the odds of my hair going gray before I’m 80 are pretty dang slim.

    No way I would color mine gray. I’m at an age where a lot of my friends are covering their gray. Mine isn’t gray at all, which is fine with me. I certainly wouldn’t color it on purpose.

    No. Once I get some nice large grey streaks I’ll stop blending them. My hair is going there naturally and I try not to participate in trends.
