I hadn't realized red fades with age. I have this friend who is in her 50s and she insists that she is a "strawberry blonde" when she first mentioned being a redhead, I thought she was joking because her hair is a very light natural blonde, I don't see any red at all. I guess when she was younger it was a lot more red and she became attached to the word "strawberry" it made her feel special as kid to be likened to strawberries. She still sees the red, but it's really just blonde now.
I asked my hairdresser about this because I've seen quite a few really older people still sporting red hair, which appears to be natural (men included so likely so). He said all redheads will have fading as they age, but the more red you have the more red you keep. Good chance I'll lose all of mine eventually unfortunately. I also asked him about the graying aspect since some of these people tend to not gray. I think I remember him saying it takes us longer. When I was about 33 years old I noticed a gray hair. The strange thing about it is I isolated it, traced it up my head, and realized when it got to ear level it had reverted back to its original color. I've not had a single gray since, including that one. Must've been a fluke.

Lucky you, I've had grays since I was 20, that's the main reason I have been keeping my hair blonde when I used to darken it often. The grays don't show as much when you have a lot of blonde highlights, I still have to do a touch up color on some areas every 4-6 weeks. It's funny that your gray hair went back to red, the pigment must have just shut down temporarily for some reason.

Default Henna color at all

Who is kidding whom here?

If a girl is moderately attractive, and can't be taken for a farm animal, most men thump their thighs and say "Oh Boy! What a Babe!"

My husband is in the same boat. He started going gray in high school (just a few strays here and there). He has been fully silver since his late 20s to around 30. He still has mostly black eyebrows, but that's about it.

Do you ever have had a particular attraction from a single type of women/men?
Well, I'll tell ya, a woman's hair color is not the first thing that attracts me.

You start some weird topics.....you are so full of BS...

Ok, so just how do you know if the hair is natural or fake? With a good color, must people can't tell the difference.....so...do you ask? It's quite obvious that you are initially attracted to these "fake" brunette's/blonde's but once you find out their color is not natural, you make the CHOICE to not like it/them.

Get honest dude!

That's true, a good friend of mine is an excellent colorist. A lot of people don't realize how much of a skill coloring hair is, she can look at someone's features, skin tone, and even clothing and pick just the right color that will look amazing and natural. She can make almost anyone with light brown to dark blonde hair look like light blonde is their natural color. Sometimes if the skin tone works darker brown can go blonde and look natural, but that's a lot of work, the bleaching is very hard on the hair, and the upkeep is insane. I don't know why anyone who isn't an actress doing it for a role would want to do it.

I have blonde hair, and I still say it's overrated, I'd prefer to go darker, but premature grays blend better with blonde so I don't have to touch up as often. I'm glad that as a society, in the past few decades, beauty ideals have expanded beyond blue eyed blondes. Idealizing one look means people who look different may feel bad, that's just not right, I'm glad that my coloring is no longer on every magazine cover like in the days of Cheryl Tiegs and Christie Brinkley.

You always can tell them apart because facial features, body type etc, a girl with italian or spanish facial features is highly unlikely she will be a pale yellow blonde (extremely rare in those ethnicities), a girl with typical germanic features, face, body, height, etc will probably be natural blonde and if she dyes it it only will be highlights from lightbrown/darkblond to a lighter shade.

You can post 10 girls pictures and I will easily tell you who is a natural blonde and who isnt.
