    In my life i have faced a lot of challenges, battles and have come out victorious.

    Every issues that i have ever encountered, i always find a solution to it, it doesn't matter how long it take, am the type that say Never Say Never.

    But today here am i saying it's over to concealing my grey hair.

    Am 30yr old and started witnessing grey hair over my head since the last 5yrs, since then i have been using one form of grey hair treatment e.t.c but don't think i can conceal it anymore.

    It's now excess, hair darkening cream don't work anymore either do youthhair creame, using dye is messy, time consuming and some hair strand do find their way out after a few days of dye. To make it worst, hair dye producers say we should dye our hair only a minimum of 2weeks.

    I really hate dye because it can be messy, stressful and you have to pay extra attention to your hair due to dye stain, hair strands growing and so on.

    Do any of you experience my kind of problem at a tender age and how do you feel?

    How have you worked over it?

    Any suggestion is welcome.

    The question below is met for ladies alone.

    1. Would you date a young guy with grey hair?
    2. Do you fancy grey hair in a man?

    Like utuxia said, people (both men and women) don't think the same way about grey hair on men as they do on women. You really don't have to worry about it. On a man, it's considered distinguished and even sexy.

    Women do not use the same criteria men do in evaluating dates as potential partners. Men tend to be very visual, looking for someone young, fit and healthy. Women tend to look for someone who would be a good provider, which is not visual. Remember, none of us do this consciously.

    In my personal experience, my hubby's hair started turning grey in his late twenties. Didn't make any difference to me. Today, he's totally grey.

    I'd stop trying to cover it up and focus on a good haircut. Learn how to talk to people, make them feel good and at ease when you meet someone new. Look for "How to make people like you in 90 seconds or less" don't remember who wrote it.

    You could also search for 'scalp exercises' - I've seen some sites on thinning hair, also mention that as the hair grew back in, the grey started diminishing.

    Good Luck

    My friend's dad's hair turned pure white when he was 19. I think that's pretty funny, but still unfortunate. He dyed it for quite some time afterwards and then just gave up and wore hats everywhere lol. Gray hair blows. You can either dye it, go bald, where a hat everywhere, or just be happy with it.

    Yes and Yes. Grey hair has always turned me on and I know other women who feel the same way. Keep your hair cut short and in a trendy cut. Something like this:

    Sweet baby Jesus, he is hot. Don't make your hair outgrown because then you will look like a clumsy college professor and it will make your face look washed out and sickly. Also, take care of your grey hair. You don't have to dye it, but you should keep it looking fresh by using something for a salt and pepper look. Read this article. http://www.nytimes.com/2008/05/08/fashion/08SKIN.html?pagewanted=all Then look at the Just For Men in the grey tones. It only takes five minutes. You comb it through and rinse. http://www.justformen.com/products/touchofgray/ It's a really hot look.

    Dark skin, salt and pepper hair in a cropped cut, and a suit. Oh. My.

    I agree with the other ladies that it is sexy and nothing you need to be covering up.

    My husband is 32 has some gray in his beard. I tease him about it because he's self-conscious but I think he's aging handsomely.
