Should men color the grayPage 26 of 27    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27)
It is totally up to them if they should cover their grey.
The same goes for me. It is up to me to cover my grey hair.

However, if I have a significant other that is going bald and starts to do a combover, I'd encourage him to shave his head or keep his hair short to save himself the work.

The gray, what? Huh? Ohhhh THAT gray, LOL Should he? I don't know, does he want to? Is there a rule somewhere? A law somewhere? Will he be arrested if he doesn't? LOL Sheesh, the stuff people worry over, Pfffft!

Do I color my hair? Sure do! I hated the dark brown my hair was, in my late 30's. Went back to the strawberry blonde/med blonde I was, when younger. I know me, when I see me, in the mirror, LOL
What does he do? Whatever he feels like doing!

Should men color the gray


Several years back I tried "Just for Men" for beards and moustaches and Grecian(sp)? Formula hair coloring. Pfft only your hair dresser knows for sure my a@@. I may as well of had a neon flashing arrow pointing at my head that said look at this duffus! Even people I rarely spoke to said " colored your hair huh?"

Wash that gray right outta your hair....please.

Just accepted it. At least I still had some to turn gray. :p

Mr Grover said somewhere above:



... but my goatee is white.


I remember going to read your profile because the thumbnail photo intrigued me. That goat is soooo white against all that tan skin, but it looks soft as can be. I'd be hard pressed, upon meeting you in person, to keep from reaching up and touching it to feel if it is as soft as it looks.

A very unique look, to be sure. I would not change it. I think anyone who has white growing in is supremely lucky, I have never been a fan of grey but it is what us humans get adorned with if we live long enough and in some cases, grey hair is better than NO hair. (Notice I said SOME cases. I am not talking the willfully hairless.)

Thank you Browneyedgirl. My goatee is soft, I use a beard oil and blowdry it after a shower.

I started turning grey before I was 30. I looked at that grey so long, that having a tan shaved head is a nice change.

Only if you are going to paint the color on carefully and leave some of the gray.

Otherwise you'll look like you're wearing a helmet. Beware of the ashy shades, and go a little bit lighter than you think you should.

You don't have to use the whole box, apply it randomly to a 1/4 inch strand at a time, on the longer parts, and paint it on where it's really short. You might need your daughter for this.

It will grow out a lot more naturally, if you do it like this.

if being bald is an option then you can grow it back and dye it. I prefer a man be his natural grey self because somehow you can nearly always tell when it is dyed and they can look rather effeminate, vain or in denial of their age.

NO.....Men shoudn't dye their hair....it usually is very noticeable, especially if they do it themselves.
Grey can be distinquishing....I don't mind it at all.
My last SO was Bald, like grover, he shaved it on purpose...and it was very handsome to me.

I think if you are more than 50% grey, it would be a pain in the a** to maintain. I also read on a different site that coloring a beard needs an application every couple of days. Not sure I would want to mess with that.

Yes, Sunkist Gal, lots of us headshavers out there, just wish there were more women like you that think we are attractive. It's a great hairstyle if you have a nice shaped head. Like I say, 61yo, and not a grey hair on my head!

grover14- There are more of us than you think. ^^^^^
A shaved head is better than a comb over ANY day.
You are 61??? You are doing something right. :)

I think a man who is considering coloring his gray should not and buy me a glass of wine instead with the money he saved.

Thank you bamagrl! Yes, good genes and low stress, and not smoking has been good to me.

Meagan, red or white? I'm buying.

I remember thinking yesterday that Meagan and Grover would make a cute couple.

Only a 19 hour drive separates them.

Google maps oh so helpfully includes the info in the directions result that there is a $319 fare for a 4.5 hr flight (if you want to deliver that wine in person........)

Look at what that savings on hair dye could buy!

Nearly the same distance to Bama but the flight is way more expensive (probably a surcharge for flying from the frozen tundra to a more hospitable clime.)

Ha, I used to live near Pensacola Florida a few years ago, it was too hot for me. My neighbor was from Florence AL, wonderful person. Oh, and while very gorgeous, Meagan is way too young for this old dog!

Gee whiz, Mr. Grover. She already green lighted you....

OLD sure is hard. I was hoping for some kind of a wedding to happen to which us forumites could be invited (seeing as how the virginal Mr Lovee went poof on the lovely Ms. KJ and ruined that budding romance. Miserable state of affairs, that.)

I have gray hair... and there is lots more where it came from.

NO, it's not a toupee. Don't be silly. I would never wear one.

It's, instead, pocket lint.

Hahaha, that's funny. It's either the nice shiny smooth bowling ball look, or looking like a Qtip.

There used to be a joke in the nineteen seventies about bowling balls and old Polish babushkas, but I forgot it. Remember, Grover?

And yours was MSG 666.

Mhwooahahaha. "What would you give for a head full of hair? Anything? ANYTHING?"
