Have you guys dye your grey hair?
I am considering dyeing my hair. Most over the counter dye products contain carcinogenic chemicals.

Has anyone use non toxic dye products that last at least a week?

In my younger days, I took my brown hair and bleach the crap out of it. It was the late 80s and i think it was more bored during summer break then anything. And when it started to grow in i knew what 'roots' ment!!!!

But if I had grey hair i'd show it off! It could be worse, going bald. I started loosing my hair in my mid 20's (gotta love my dad's side of the family).

I'm in my low 30's and wishing i had more hair then the stuff that grows on the sides of my nogging. All i have is to use number 2 on the clippers to keep it short or shave it off (which i can't do - too many bumps from my younger days).

Long story short, show off the grey hair! I would if i could!!!!

I dye my hair. Why does the package say not to dye any hair but on your head (for example, my chest) and not to re-dye your hair?

Hell no! The way I see it is my grey is a reminder that I am the only male in the house and that I have three fantastic daughters and a fabulous wife I am blessed to call my best friend. BTW: I am drowning in an ocean of pink! Anyone got a camo life vest? grin

I agree with anyone who views their grey hair in the most positive manner posssible: think of it as SILVER, not grey. Silver refers properly to something of value to be earned. Grey is, well, not positive enough; sort of in the vein of "grey water" kind of. cm.

Become a teacher. Grey hair is viewed as an asset wink .

However, this only works for guys...

ah. no thanks. I heard that teachers are paid poorly. I am not earning enough money in IT. I can't afford to earn less dough.
