Grey hair - Page 2

post #16 of 30
Well I guess I'm simplistic... I stroll down the aisle and find the right shade of 'Nice & Easy' which is aptly named and nicely covers the white patch I get right where I part my hair. I have not developed a tendency to wear women's clothing since using the chick's hair coloring stuff - no estrogen or cooties in it and a much bigger selection than the male products. Be brave, buy the girly stuff, we won't tell. If guys are talking Brazilian groin waxing, entering the feminine hair coloring aisle should not intimidate anyone here.

Grey hair indicates a copper deficiency. Eat a diet high in sprouts and wheatgrass - this will help alot. Cut out cooked food. Supplement your diet with colloidal copper. lt works. lf you don't do something about it you will be prone to Anerism. Copper shortage will eventually mean a breakdown in the elastic fibers in your arteries. Hair dying is a bandaid sollution. Your body is giving you hints that all is not well. This is the very beginning of the onset of disease.
According to Marc, I wonder if patients with Wilson's disease get gray hair?  Fareau?  Maybe I'm the only one who finds it funny to think about a 50-year old with jet black hair, a yellow-ring around his eye, and a funky neurological disorder.

Nothing wheatgrass can't cure, eh Marc? Jon.
With a proper balanced raw diet, there is not much wheatgrass can't cure. l recommend everyone try it.

Sorry to resurrect this old thread. This is starting to happen to me. I'm only in my 30's and I already have 5-6 permanent grey hairs. I used to pluck them and they would never come back. Now, I pluck them and they are growing back grey!

Several google searches (on grey hair deficiency) came back indicating that a deficiency in vitamin B12 is a major cause. I'll definitely try the wheat grass though.

Keep your gray hair short to fit your facial features/skull shape...and don't bother with dyeing, very few of those jobs look authentic

26 here bro, its coming in faster than I want. I think Im dialing in my just for men color combo though, lol.

I actually dont mind it too much. If I had to choose Id rather be grey than bald - seems alittle more sophisticated.

I suggest buying a no-lift hair color, like Second Nature, in at least one shade lighter than your natural hair color. You can mix it with a 10-volume developer for semi-permanent results or 20-volume for permanent results. If you use the 20-volume, you might get some overall lightening of your hair with repeated use. Using a shade lighter with a no-lift formula will change your grey hair to this shade, but leave your darker natural color the way it is. It gives a more subtle and natural look since your hair will not be so monochromatic.

I have a good bit of grey in m hair and have found great joy in making it shine cleanly and bright with Aveeda's Blue Malva conditioner

I don't have much gray, but I don't mind what I have. It's fine with me.

Two things.

1. I have been going gray since my mid-20s. Embrace it and have fun with it. It does make one look distinguished and women (not girls) like the slat and pepper. I do agree that short is the way to go with salt and pepper.

2. I am not Marc37 and wheat grass is a waste of your time and money. Indeed, no legitimate studies have found that any supplements impact the rate of graying, which is, absent a medical cause, purely a roll of the genetics dice.

Good luck.

My hair began turning gray before I turned 30. The conventional stuff such as Just for Men looked really fake and hardly lasted, so I then tried the professional stuff, which hardly worked better. Finally, I accepted the situation, lived with it by cutting my hair shorter, now I kind of like it.

My (woman) hair dresser told me, after I "embraced" it, that I looked a lot better than before. She asked me why I had waited so long to just let it go.

I started going gray in my late teens, and by the time I was in my late 20's it was about half gray.

It bothered me enough to where I started getting it colored (at a salon). After spending thousands of dollars over the years, I recently decided it was just not worth it to color anymore. At 37, it is over 90% gray (really it is more white than gray), and honestly I like it a lot now (and so does my wife...).

Embrace your gray
