Grey Hair





Tony The Tiger
I have started experiencing very significant grey hair growth. I am also lazy about shaving. This combination has enabled me to notice that my grey hair follicles seem to produce hair growth at much faster rates than my black hair follicles. Why does grey hair grow so much faster than other hair?
Sadow
I don't think this is the case. Just because grey hair is more noticable, it's not that it's growing faster than other colored hair. I think it's just your imagination. Razz

I will have to get out the measuring stick.

I'd prefer grey hair to being bald actually...at least you'd still have hair! Wink

What about both? I have a greying beard and I shave my head bald. My head is largely bald anyway and shaving it is for the better, IMO. I like blondies like you. Keep it coming.

Just something, but I don't think that bigdan is a blonde woman. The website has a different picture, and bigdan sounds like a guy, I think you just mistook his avatar for him. I'm sorry if I misunderstood.

But I don't know, I think that maybe grey hair grows faster on a beard. I know several people who have greying beards, but their hair color remains relatively black.

someone told me once that if you pull one grey hair seven grow back... and judging by the amount i m getting recently, i m starting to believe it! Once they start appering there is no stopping them...
Anyway I find a man with a little grey hair very sexy (much to hubby's joy) but if you dont like it, you can just die it (apparently they do die for beard to...).

Why are people so afraid of getting old? When I get closer to that I wonít worry that much about how I look, I think more about other things.

My father has still thick hair, or it looks think anyway. And itís brown and gray, itís kind of mixed, and I think itís just wonderful. I love that kind of hair on older men, looks mature. What I hate is when men try to hide the fact that they are bald, either by brushing their hair over or wearing a wig or something, looks pathetic.
And then there are those that shave their head, most older men look fine with that, and I like it to.

is it true, if you pluck a grey hair more grows back, quicker?

Darn it. I think you may be correct.

I don't think I will ever die or plug my hair. . .unless Hollywood calls and insists with big dollars behind their demands

I don't know anything about plucking. I don't pluck. I shave. I do need to hear from more women who think I am sexy. What I really need is a squad of women wearing I heart T O N Y shirts.

I don't think you should view grey hair as a sign of age, more as a sign of maturity. If it doesn't bother you, leave it be, let people see that you are a mature man, who is confident enough not to hide himself away from others.

I am a guy with brown hair. And a very big guy at that! Laughing Sorry if I deceived you, the blondie in my avatar is Hayden Patinerre from Heroes.

I'd prefer to have brown hair, and if genetics are anything to go by (e.g. your mum's dad is where the old age hair gene comes from, if it can be believed), I'll have a thick crop of grey/white hair like my grandfather when he died. I'd happily take the grey hair! Very Happy

And? did you measure your hairs to comp(h)air? Razz
Anyways, I'm growing grey hairs but I shave them almost completely off. Not that I hate the color of the hair. Not at all, but I just like to be bold. It's just much more easier to stand up each morning take shower and tata! you're hair is in great shape. Laughing

Are you saying grey hairs come from dieting and that one can get color to return to grey hair producing follicles by changing one's diet?

I have just figured out what you mean about double posting. I apologize for adding another.

it doesn't matter i think. the grey hair will not grow faster than the blace hair. if you want to make your hair more black, you should go to see a doctor ,i think he will give you some good advice.
or you can cut very short hair, it will looks much more comfortable.

Diet sure can have an effect on hair, but I don't think a different diet will change my graying hair back to golden blonde. If so, please let me know, and I will stop spending $125 every couple of months at my hair salon!

I've also heard of people who have experienced a significant trauma and have had their hair turn white overnight.

Hmmmmm.

P.S., Tony I think you're quite hot. I especially like the black fur on your face -- is that a touch of distinguished grey there? -- and that sexy way you growl when you eat your breakfast cereal.

Do you have any details on what type of diet is good for continued color in hair follicle production.

I have heard of this too. That is not my problem.

I should have used the full body avatar so you could see my big chest and slim waist! Many wild animals and freaks of nature seem to have opinions on such matters.

People who are protein deficient often end up with brittle, red-tinged hair. But that's not your problem either, is it?

Grey hair is simply a natural part of the aging process -- its onset and progress governed largely by genetics.

I'm no nutritionist, but my understanding is that general hair health is like anything else: a healthy, balanced diet and proper hydration will keep whatever hair you have shiny and in good condition. Avoid excessive alcohol and smoking. Protect it from the sun. All that good stuff.

I say, like Genesiz up there ^, embrace your age and stay healthy in body, mind and spirit.

As for grey hair growing faster than regularly coloured hair, I'm not sure that's true--but it definitely tends to have a different texture, and maybe that's why it seems to stand out. Also, we tend to fixate on it, don't we?

That's really unfortuante, but I wouldn't fight against it because the girl on What Not To Wear, Stacy London, has like this grey strand and it's gorgeous - it gives her personality/character. You should just go with it.

I'm starting to go grey, at the ripe old age of 26 Confused I hate it, but there is not too much I can do besides dye my hair....

I think you may be right. It may just stand up on end a little more. Because it seems taller it seems to be growing faster.

Dying is not good for the hair or the scalp. Why not highlight it instead? If you can find a really good hairdresser who can do that subtly it can look good and last for a long time.

It is my observation that most women in the public spotlight avoid showing greying hair in general. On occasion, when a woman wants to make a name for her intellect or other assets other than her beauty she may allow some grey to show. Ms. London is obviously trying to distinguish herself as a consultant whose opinion matters. If she were trying to be a sex symbol, which is not to say that she is not sexy, she would color like all other women who vie for attention in part based on their looks.

I am a man. It is not as necessary for men to color. Many men are considered sexy even as they grey. I am not aiming to be a sex symbol although I can not fight natural perceptions:-! I am not fighting my grey, but Ms. London has little to do with my rationale.

Well its nice to hear there are some people like grey hair but isn't a also sign of aging or symptoms of hair loss
Velius
I agree just be yourself and do what you usually do. Good luck in your problems

Well... Gerying of hair is due to loss or killing of melanin in your hair follicles.. so you better include Vitamins in your diet.
One more thing , don't make yourself too much stressed. Just stay cool and regularly massage ...!! it'll help you out...!! Razz

What foods are high in melanin? Are you sure that this is what causes greying. If so why doesn't it also cause the loss of coloration in the iris, which melanin is also a source of color for?

I was told by an iridologist that the colour of our eyes is effected by what we eat. Not sure how real it is.

I shaved it all of at 32 (now 45). Been going cueball a couple times a week ever since. Fortunately, us soul brothers look good that way.

I have never heard that one. What is an iridologist? Do they tell fortunes, do horoscopes and such?

small grief of mine skies turned to gray hair. and could not find the solution to soak the natural color.
cliffkelly
Grey hair is simply a natural part of the aging process -- its onset and progress governed largely by genetics. Gray hair can be harder to color as it is more resistant to haircolor or hair dye due to a decreased amount of melanin.
gphoenix
This could be in your head. Like you are super aware of the gray hair because you are watching it all the time.

Otherwise, I would make a guess that because it lacks color pigment it can be grown faster. Also, hormonal changes that cause gray hair as we age, also cause hair to grow faster or slower. So does the seasonal changes: in cold weather, hair grows faster. In hot, it grows slower.

You can try an oil called Dhatri (search ebay.) its ayurvedic and prevents grey hair..
