Where is this "hair" located? I have been led to believe that hair on the scalp is a sign of testosterone deficiency.

My story, and I'm sticking to it.

Worrying about your hair color is a sign of being vain and shallow.

That said it has to be noted that this is a very vain and shallow society that is focused on surface beauty and wealth. Failure to meet the expectations of this society has a very high cost. The inversion of the 'Halo effect'.

I do note that studies of internal versus external shows of wealth shows that the poor don't struggle very much to maintain appearances. No point. From middle class and through the upper strata pressure to 'keep up with the Jones' increases.

But the upper tenth of one percent tend to show fewer external signs of wealth. Often having little more tendency to show their wealth than the lower ten percent. At the multi-Billion dollar level there is no need to prove anything to anyone. Quite a few of these folks live a lower middle-class lifestyle. But with the calm and knowing smile of someone who has nine figures well invested.

I dye mine every 6 weeks or so. I go to a ladies hair salon and use the same dye and color service that women use. It is by far the best way to cover grey, and get the longest lasting coverage. They've been doing it for eons, take advantage of what they have learned!

I used to use over the counter dyes that you can buy at the drug store "just for men" and the dyes that the leading manufacturers sell. ( clairol, etc..)

But, they just don't cut it as far as grey coverage is concerned. You wind up looking like you've used shoe polish on your head...AND , you can wind up dying your skin in the process.

I've found that coloring, with a bit of highlighting does the trick quite well. And, spending an hour or two with a good looking woman coloring, cutting, and shampooing my hair is a good thing indeed.

As far as the non-toxic issue goes, i'm not sure.

Personally, I wouldn't think twice about it...

Better to have a head of grey hair to color, than a smattering of stubble to shave off..

No, can't explain it. Just don't.

Kind of like guys who wear bowties or plaid jackets. Or any tie at all if they don't have to. Never ever trust them...

Another old, bald guy here... I like the post where the guy suggests going to a ladies hair salon and having them do it, because all the guys I know that dye their hair, 3 total right now, but about 12 over the last ten years, man, you could tell... And I tried Just for Men and it sure did look fake! i think whomever suggested the ladies salon has the right idea.

Just out of curiosity though, why is it vain and shallow for a man to dye his hair but not for a lady? Is this a double standard? Or am I reading too much into it?

Testosterone deficiency, I'll have to remember that one the next time a gal tells me she doesn't date bald guys..
