    I find young women with grey hair kind of sexy. I "dated" a girl in her mid twenties with several grey hairs and I have to admit it kind of turned me on.

    Does that make me a bad person?

    Yeah I've had salt and pepper specks at the temples since about 25, my brother too.

    I think now at 34 I have a decent amount of grey at the sides. I say I think as yeah I do dye my hair once a month. I would avoid all the made for men stuff it is pretty poor, instead go with a decent hair dye for women - they're fussy as hell about their hair, so it means better quality!

    Clairol perfect 10 is pretty great and looks v v real

    I figure I'll wait until about 40 and if I've enough grey then for it to look great, stop dying it. I actually look forward to a decent amount of grey so I can better wear salt and pepper charcoal flannel and other greys.

    Girl wise I find girls prefer me to have grey un dyed hair, but then my GFs all prefer much older men.

    Yes. I did likewise, she was 22 and small and very cute, yet had quite a lot of grey, almost looking like highlights if she didn't dye it.

    The problem becomes having to touch up your hair every week, otherwise the roots show. It makes you a slave to the ritual. "I'm going on that three day trip, better touch up my roots so nobody knows I'm dying my hair". Everyone else in your life is too concerned with their own worries and insecurities to give your hair much thought. It's no big deal you've got some greys. If you still feel you must, get some Just for Men Beard dye as it comes with an applicator brush which you can use to target the areas on your head that bother you. This avoids having to dye all of your hair. Get a color lighter than your own hair.

    My advice would be:

    Boo hoo, yeah it sucks. Live with it. Dye is for ____s, and will look bizarre no matter what. Save your crying for when your chest and nutsack hairs start going gray. THAT is when you know you look like an old f--k.

    Live with it - it's very distinctive when you are younger. Mine started in my early 20s and now at 38 its nearly all grey. I get compliments all the time now and none when I went through a period of trying to hide it with color.

    In my country, when a mans gain the hairs of grey on his face and on his hairs and on his nose when he has not gain many years of age, he is have a low energy. He is having his mans energies stolen from him by a devil womans. You must not speak to this devil womans, she is sell her body to you for a price. But you must say to this womans, you must say no sir, I will not buy it from you. I am a powerful mans who must preserve his wild energies, such as his wild tiger energies and his beast energies. You will not stole the wild beast energies from my testiculos or my bojojo-stick.

    I agree with others either live with it or get a good shampoo hair color to hide it. I choose the later course because if you still have a youthful face and body why look like an old man now.

    Almost everyone have grey's even though they are still young.
    Seriously, are plurals that hard for people? Seeing misused apostrophes drives me up a wall. The word is greys. [​IMG] "Grey's" is a possessive form, i.e., "Grey's Anatomy."
