    I am to the age that i have started to notice more and more grey hair sprouting up everywhere... I am just under 40 years old.
    Any guys use any products to dye you hair to get rid of the grey.
    The Grey hair on my head is mostly at the temples, but i have disperse areas all over. I also notive that if i grow a beard, it has ALOT or grey... Salt and pepper in color.

    Greys that pop up in my chest hair are really making me feel like an old man.....

    MY Questions... Any of you guys dye your grey hair or let the hair bother you....

    Any guys ever dye their chest hair.... ( I have been thinking about using just for men mustache dye to do this...)

    Not sure if this is a good idea or a foolish vain idea....

    Any Thoughts or Suggestions?

    Thanks, Guys

    My boyfriend's hair is getting more and more gray on the sides, but he's been dying it and didn't tell me. When I found this out I flipped. Now he lets some of it on the sides and sideburns stay gray and I can't leave him alone.

    Age like a man, let it go gray.

    I've had grey hair since high school. It never bothered me. It doesn't really matter anyways, since I shave my head. icon_lol.gif

    Well, since my hairline is receding and I'm not doing anything about it I hink I'd just let the color change to the natural course and next time I go get a hair cut I tell them,
    "Hey notice how it's receding and going grey? Can you do something that works with that? Let's go with a distinguished, professional but sexy look. Have fun with it!"
    Every time I have told a hair stylist t0 have fun with it they always do a great job. They won't do anything extreem (like color, or style madness) without asking, so have a go at it and enjoy yourself!

    I say -it is better to turn grey than to turn loose.

    Well, I bought some of the men's coloring and put it under my bathroom sink but I do not use it. I just turned 43 yesterday and just have a little white hair on my head and no where else. I kind of like it because I think that it makes me look older.

    I don't die my hair on head obviously, but....

    I do dye my chest hair using the mustache stuff.

    A couple of suggestions- Follow the directions closely and DO NOT LEAVE ON MORE THAN 5 minutes!
    Also, go one step lighter than your actual hair. if you hair is medium brown, use light brown etc.

    Good luck.

    I'm getting a little grey. It seems to really come out if I have facial hair but if I keep my hair short you it seems to be unnoticeable. I'm not at the point to actually do anything about it though I probably wouldn't anyway. I have made comments about it being frosted when someone mentions it though.

    At 45 I tried the grey for a while until a kid referred to me as "the old guy"!!!
    So now I have it professionally dyed!! LOL And as for my grey chest hair...I shave my chest to avoid them. I do know that someday I will just let it all go grey..just not yet!! LOL

    I think that it looks pretty hot when a younger looking man has gray hair...especially at the temples! But, everyone needs to do what feels right for them. =)

    Ever notice the Target commercials...they almost always show a guy that looks in his 30's with gray hair. And the guy is always gorgeous. Kudos to the Target casting directors! =)

    colored my hair for years, a guy I was dating last year asked me to grow it out, I got so much attention from the grey, i would never go back. all i hear is how sexy it is. it's on my chest and face and south of the border. it doesn't make me feel old as the loss in pigment in the melanin is due to genetics as opposed to age. Leave it and own it.

    I colored my hair through my thirties until half way through my 40th year. At the time my hair was shoulder length - always beena hippie wannabe. I lost a job, it was a life changing experience to be let go. The same day I went to the barber and asked him how short I would have to go if I wanted to get rid of all the coloring. I went from shoulder length to almost shaved in about 10 minutes, and I haven't looked back. I just turned 45 and have had tons of positive comments from mena dnwomen of all ages. I say let it go gray. Let the chest hair go too; and when gray shows up below the waist...remember it's all part of the aging process. Wear it all with pride.

    I had grey hairs at 30. Not very noticable with super short hair... I donĀ“t dye, and doubt I would, apart from maybe once for a laugh

    I'm in my 20s.

    In my opinion, there is NOTHING sexier than a handsome guy in good shape who's greying at the temples or has a head of silver hair.

    Unless your hair has an odd greying pattern, please don't dye... it never looks quite 'right'.

    I keep it salt and pepper. Actually, I wear my hair short so it's impossible to dye and wouldn't last long if I did!

    I'm pretty lucky, I don't have any gray issues. Finally I noticed a few gray hairs in my sideburns, but isn't noticable. I doubt if it will bother me particularly.

    At 47, I still only have the occasional random gray hair. But, if my hair ever does finally start turning gray, I will let it.

    I don't bother about my grey hair, especially when my bf likes the "mature" look... ;)
