How fortunate for you that you have such nice white hair, or gray hair, or thick hair, if that is what you have...how charitable it would be for you to be supportive of those whose hair does not meet your standards!

BTW, not everyone wants the "helmet head" style that is forced on just about evey postmenopausal woman I know. Some of us want to keep our long hair, even if it's not as thick as it was when we were 16, or 30, or 70!
What the hell are you talking about? You must have responded to the wrong post!

My mom had dementia. She did continue dyeing her hair until having it done created more problems than it solved. The woman who did her hair at the ALF couldn't do a good dye job, and we hated the awful color her hair was after it was done. And, the color was rubbing off on her upholstered furniture. And, we were beginning to be afraid that my mom was going to run out of money before she died. The dyes were a very small part of the money equation, but we couldn't see why she should pay money for a crummy dye job.

She actually gave it up pretty easily. Dementia patients do not look at themselves in the mirror. I doubt she knew what she looked like. If she had a picture in her mind of herself I am sure it included red hair.

If my mom had been in her right mind, I know she would have been horrified to have seen her hair after the dye jobs she got at the ALF.

I've answered your question. Now I have a question for you. Why are you assuming we did not have our mom's best interests at heart? I think that is the heart of your question, no?

I went back and read the post that you responded to, and your post DOES sound as if you are responding to another post. KathrynAragon related a story about a family member, and you came back with completely unrelated remarks about how someone should be more charitable toward those who have thin hair and then went into something about helmet heads. It just doesn't make any sense as a response to anything she said.

And if you really want your hair purple or blue, well, we who about to dye salute them!

I have been dyeing my hair for decades. I started going gray at 18. I do it for me because the gray plus my light skin washes me out completely. And it's fun.

And it's not my intention to 'fool' anyone!

I'm not trying to fool anyone either. I do it for myself. Just like women usually dress to please themselves, we also mess with our hair to please ourselves.
