    Thanks for the tip Sally. Unfortunately, the cousins are busy people so will have to just do it at some point.

    I colored my hair when I started getting some gray in my thirties until I was 55. I was so tired of the he roots showing so quickly so I quit coloring it. I was pleasantly surprised at how soft and healthy it is. I get a lot of compliments on it.

    It was funny when my Sister didn't know people could start getting gray in different areas of their heads. Men sometimes get a spot of gray on top or back. some on the temples, etc everyone is different. . .

    I love everyone's stories! I'm almost 65 and still have my red/brown hair, which I have highlighted when I feel like it. I have two friends that I went to high school with that have both gone completely gray/white. Went to lunch and the waitress asked if either of them were my mom!! I think we laughed all afternoon about that!!

    *** No, Sandygirl, my hair is not thick now.
    ***
    *** The longer it gets (now down halfway my bsck) the thinner it gets on top.
    ***
    *** Can see my scalp through the hair.

    *** Will never dye it again, but do trim occasionally.

    I had dyed my hair for 30 years and finally had enough of the grey stripe roots after a week or so. I let my hair go grey and I kept it short and I used whitening shampoo to help get rid of the left-over color (bought at Petco...the shampoo is cheaper there). So now I am completely natural and I even stopped shampooing my hair altogether. I use this stuff from a company called AsIAm and I use coconut co-wash...kinda a cleanser/conditioner all-in-one. I get a ton of compliments on my hair color and it's the best thing I've done in a long time. I couldn't be happier with this decision.
    Dream as if you'll live forever. Live as if you'll die today.

    Some people are like Slinkies - not really good for anything, but you still can't help but chuckle when you see one tumble down the stairs.
