I have long hair and grew it out all gray. I liked it at first and now I cant stand it on me. I feel like it makes me look like I dont take care of myself. I dont think that when I look at other people with gray hair.

Sooo I purchased some vegan hair dye and will color it again. Just cant deal with the gray anymore

I think women with great-looking gray hair are using a blue or purple shampoo. Otherwise, gray hair can get a nasty yellowish shade in the white parts of the hair, making it look really dingy. You can also use toner on gray hair to get rid of yellow or orange tones.

My mother used some sort of shampoo for grey, white hair which pretty much kept it from getting yellow. Once a year she'd go to a salon to have it cleaned up.

When I retired in 2009, I stopped coloring my hair. I resented how expensive and time-consuming the monthly touch-ups were.

I love my silver (I refuse to call it gray) hair, and I take good care of it. It looks sort of like Meryl Streep's hair in "The Devil Wears Prada."

Nope. I'm in my early fifties, and my hair is not yet graying, so I don't use hair coloring. Plus, my hair is red, so I'm afraid your remedy would not work for me. That being said, I don't have any desire to look younger than I am. As far as I'm concerned, I am what someone in her fifties looks like, and I embrace my age, crows feet and all.

i used the just for men stuff a few times. works good and is really easy. the gray hair that i have doesnt really bother me unless i let my hair get too long. thats when it is annoying. so i try to keep consistent with the hair cutting schedule and i havent used the color in a long time now. but its a good product, at least for guys.

A couple of times a year, I have my hair highlighted, and the gray blends in.
