    There are tons of women who can pull grey off beautifully. I've never died my hair and don't intend to even though I'm 24 and have some stray greys in the middle of my raven mane.

    Having a lot of trouble with L'Oreal lately, and the Clairol I used last time didn't do the trick either. They keep changing their formulas every so often and then it no longer works well on the grey.
    Thanks for the tips. Maybe I'll try that if this latest colour isn't quite what I want - mix up my own concoction.

    Garnier Belle Colour is pretty good on greys. Grey can be a tough bugger to cover, though. Keep your hair very well-conditioned as the drier and more porous it is, the less it will hold colour. I'm sure you knew that though!

    Your face will tell you, and if you're wise enough,
    you will listen. I have an aunt whose husband wanted
    her to keep her natural color, even when she started
    going grey. So, she faithfully dyed her greying hair
    back into her original color for years, decades even.
    Then my uncle died and after a few months she
    stopped dying her hair. She had the most perfect,
    white/grey hair and suddenly looked 10-15 years
    younger than her age! Her hair color fit her face,
    and it resulted in her looking less worn and tired,
    the way she had started looking with the dyed hair.
    She's in her eighties now, but most people think
    she's late sixties at most!

    I wish I were like that. Unfortunately grey hair ages me terribly. It just doesn't go with my face, clothing and look. At the moment I can't afford to change my entire wardrobe. I would dearly love to let it grow and may do it in about 4-5 years. But for now, I can't. I really envy women who look fantastic with grey hair.

    I know that was meant to be funny, but they had a great
    marriage and family life. All their six children bought homes
    near by the family home, because it was such a warm nest.
    She went into a deep depression when my uncle died, and
    the not dying her hair anymore was a way to try and start
    with a clean slate, to get over the grief. My uncle was only
    69 when he died in 1994 and she was almost 3 years older
    than he. She still misses him dearly. We all do.

    Aw HWBL I feel badly for your aunt. I hope she's doing much better now. That's such a major life change. Can't imagine it.

    Thank you. She's a sweetie. I think she expected to go first, being older
    and him always being so robust. She started enjoying life again about a
    decade ago, but she really went through some tough times.

    After all the internet research I done last night on damaged hair, I came across something called Indian Gooseberry which claims it can hold grey hair at bay LOL. You can google it if your interested!

    Too late!

    I've also heard that a good supply of high quality Vitamin E and biotin and some other stuff will slow down the greying process and even reverse it if you catch it early enough.

    Mira, I also found something called 3 Minute Miracle Aussie Hair and guess what? They don't sell it in Australia LOL. No online ordering either unless I go Ebay.
    eta- that comment was for my damaged hair condition not the grey!
