I've seen quite a few women with absolutely gorgeous white/silver hair, and they look beautiful with it.

In April, it will have been 2 years since I colored my hair. I was 60.


I don't think I was trying to trick anyone into thinking I looked younger...it's just...I've been coloring my hair since I was 19 mostly. I had stopped for awhile, when my kids were in grade school, when I was in my 30's...but I was already SOOO gray (not white or silver yet) and I felt like I looked like my kids grandma, so I went back to coloring it.


I'm a natural brunette (had VERY dark hair) but the last 10 or 15 years, I'd been dying it various shades of red, including violet, and burgundy. My sister convinced me to let it grow out, so I did. But I always had the caveat that if I didn't like it, I'd start dying it again. Just turned out that I like it a lot.


If you go to my profile, you can kind of see what it looks like now. That picture was taken maybe a year ago.

It's beautiful, Sassy! You do NOT need to color your hair. Your sister gave you good advice.

Your hair--and you--look wonderful. Look how your eyes are illuminated by being framed by your hair. Hope mine turn our half as nice as yours!
