I'm 33, balding, and am more and more frequently finding grey in my beard. I don't care.

Embrace it.

I'm 22 now. I like my jet black hair, and don't think a youthful face with grey hair would go well.

I just touched up my roots today and, like you, find that a bit of gold/red tone really brightens my complexion (pale white Irish skin). The ashy colors do nothing for me.

That's where I'm at. I'm 38, my dad is from India, and I'm unlucky enough to have received the premature grey gene from my mother, who started dying her hair by necessity right after high school I didn't have to start that early, but by age 25, I was already greying a lot. I dye my hair jet black, its natural color, every 9 weeks or so. I couldn't let it go grey when I'm this young, especially since it's super thick, coarse, and waist length. My dad is 70 years old now and has still barely greyed at all. I'm jealous.

My dad is 51 and mostly bald. My mothers hair started greying around 5 years back, and she uses mehendi to keep it dark. I prefer coconut oil over any kind of dye though. Dye in southeastern humidity = disaster

I agree.

A youthful face doesn't go with gray hair, and an aging face SURE doesn't go with jet black hair.

Irish descent here too. The ashy tones drain the color from my face, the warm ones give it back.

I notice on Facebook people liking this new style of grey hair.

Turn OFF

I think it looks okay for a man to dye his mostly gray hair to salt-and-pepper.

Also, I remember once hanging out around a man in his late twenties with maybe 1/3rd gray hair. If anything, his face looked younger than his age, and he was a good-looking guy. To me, the gray created a striking look. My guess is that few women over 25 would have held his gray hair against him. I'm confident his wife didn't
