I'd only colored my hair about 4-5 years, but had to quit when I went on chemo. when I finished, my family told me forget the coloring - - ! I'm now 80 and still salt and pepper and when I tell people my about my age, their jaws drop. They REALLY think I'm about my late 50's or early 60's! So, needless to say, I'm sticking w/the gray ! It really helps to have taken care of your skin, too. .I never used any expensive creams or lotions, Aveeno is all I need . Oh yes, you'd be surprised how much more courtesy you experience with gray hair.View Thread
