My hair is medium brown, I have been dying it a deep Burgundy the last 5 years myself. In fact this time it came out great the color because I left on on a little longer than the box said. I am only 49 and only have a few grays on the top. I don't think I'd be ready to let it grow gray for a long time. My mom is 75 and still dyes her hair. I use Revlon 3 D color. I had a HS teacher who's hair was white and she was maybe in her early 40's but she looked very pretty with it.

Some people's gray is GORGEOUS -- goes well with their face, their personalities, etc. A woman in the grad-school cohort after mine at Michigan was only in her late 20s but she was COMPLETELY gray -- her hair was in beautiful shape, very thick and shiny, but the color DID age her simply because you don't expect someone in her 20s to be (that) gray.

Alas, my gray hair is just ugly to me, and I know this because I haven't colored it since December (I was working from home all during the spring semester and now), but if we go back to in-person classes in the fall, I likely will again just before classes start. (I use my name only at zoom meetings -- no camera!)

But in retirement? I will likely just let it do what it wants!

I found a picture of myself from 2009 where I had cut my hair super short so all the gray/silver/white was on display. My granddaughter, who was very young said "Nonna, why do you look so old now?". That was the end of letting the gray grow out.

I showed this picture to a friend yesterday and she said it made me look 20 years older. That is why I still color my hair. I'm never taken for my age and I want to keep it that way as long as possible.
