    I put henna on my naturally dark brown/auburn hair now and the bazillion greys I have look like pretty highlights. I’ll be 37 this spring and plan on keeping up with the henna until my 40th, then screw it, I’m rocking the grey. I think it will suit me, I’ve got that whole free spirit hippie vibe going on anyway… 

    I would never put forth the effort required to chemically turn my dark hair grey! My 14 y.o. Son is rocking the silver right now though! It looks awesome on him! He and his sister do all they crazy colors then just shave it off every few months.

    slomotion :  Yeah, I was a crazy beautiful purple, hot pink and fire engine red through various times in life. I am considering the grey look simply because I’m heading there already and it’s just another hair change to play with! 😀

    sassy411 :  I started getting grey hairs at 13, the boat for dying my hair has long sailed!

    I don’t think I could pull off the silver grey but I could pull off the Lilac grey colors.

    Don’t color now.  A darker blonde naturally. I think I will dye it gray when I’m like really starting to gray to even it out and keep it healthy. I think hair colored blonde all the time looks fried. So whichever is easy when I gray.

    I think I would look dead.  I have very pale olive toned skin and dark features.  I did do my bangs neon pink when I was in college.  I cover the very little bit of grey that comes in because it’s so noticeable against my dark hair.

    Not for me, I do have a student that returned from winter break with grey hair and it looks super awesome!

    I’ll be 41 this year and my hair is naturally turning gray. It’s currently at the point that it looks like I have some highlights. My mom let her hair go naturally gray a few years ago and it looks so great.

    I’ve tried most color so why not gray

    Not all (natural) grey hair is equal.  Some are bright, soft and shiny.  Others are wire-y, brittle, unmanagable and dull.  I would love to wear natural grey hair of the soft and shiny sort.  But that is not what the few grays I have are.  I color my hair to improve texture as much as for color.  I have always colored my hair though, I like changing it and it gives me much more shine and body than my virgin hair.

    I coloured my hair grey a few years ago! I was in my mid twenties so I felt like I just looked old Lol.

    I love grey/silver hair on some people! I don’t think it looks anything like natural grey hair so I don’t know why people are making that comparison. I would never do it because my hair is naturally black and it would be way too much work to get it to that colour and way too damaging/expensive.
