Gray hair is over taking my head!

Recommended Posts

AHHHHHH! I am not even 27 yet and i have a head full of gray hair! It is really pissing me off! We're not talking one or two, but all over my whole head! I get it dyed but it seems like there are more everyday!

 

FI will catch me sitting on the bathroom vanity inspecting my scalp. He thinks I'm a little bit crazy! I keep telling him he is the one doing this to me!

 

I'll have to go to the salon about a week before the wedding, I guess. I really don't want to be salt & pepper at my wedding!

That sucks! If it makes you feel any better, my hair is thinning. My G-ma has really thin hair and I think I have inherited it! I have a big thin spot on the top of my head!

Your hair looks really dark in the pic. I say if coloring works, go for it!

I feel your pain ... if it makes you feel any better, I found my first one in HIGH SCHOOL! Plus - with my hair being so black ... each one practically screams "hey look at me!" They are not just gray - but they are those crazy wiry, course, metallic hairs ...

 

Needless to say ... that's why hair color is a girls best friend. FI didn't even know I color my hair until we'd been dating for a couple of years.

 

You might just talk to your stylist and see when they would recommend you come in for coloring. Sometimes it can change the texture of your hair ... so you might want to give a little bit of lead time to get used to it! :)

Yeah, I think having such dark hair makes them stand out even more.

 

Apparently this is a genetic thing. My nana was completely silver by the time she was 22, my mom made it to 28, so I'll cross my fingers I make it to 30!

 

I guess it is just irritating that men become more distinguished and we just look old! FI doesn't care at all about his hair!

I have a few here and there and it freaks me out. I have been going reddish the last few years but I think I'll switch to highlights. I think it covers better when you just have random ones.

I know EXACTLY what you mean. I am 34 now, so grays are to be expected, but my Mom had almost a full head of gray at 18 -- and I am not far behind her. I have to get my hair highlighted regularly, but they still can't get all the grays covered. And I even use the touch-up root color in between because the grays become so visible so fast.

 

my hair coloring before the wedding will be just a few days before we leave ... so hopefully not too much will 'pop up' within a weeks time. lol

 

I HATE the grays -- but sometimes I still get carded for beer and cigs (yeah!) so I guess they aren't too bad when they serve as that mark of maturity. And I think it adds cerdibility on the job, believe it or not. Especially in sales, when you look a little younger but they see the grays and think 'wow, she must be older than she looks' ... (although I think I look my age).

I went to high school with a girl who had long thick black hair with lots of strands of gray...she told people she had an old soul and we thought she was cool! So it's not a bad thing...lol

 

I've had one gray hair for years but my hair is light so you can't tell unless you inspect my scalp. My mom says they grow more if you pluck them so stick to the die :)

Not to sound mean because you are venting...but I am glad I am not the only one!!! I am 28 and will be 29 soon and I have a ton of gray hair and I too am not talking about strands...it's patches and little broken ones in my part!!! I box dyed my hair about 3 weeks ago and it's back already!!! In the summer I put blonde highlights in so that it isn't as obvious when it grows in but it is really bad and no one understand unless they have it or you really pull up your hair and show them!! sad.gif

 

I too think it's genetic and it sucks!!!

This is so true and I wasn't aware of it until I started plucking mine and sure enough they are coming back in doubles and triples!!shitfan.gif

An "old soul" .... that's a good one ... I'll have to remember that! :)

Michelle makes a good point ... highlights are a great way to camouflage ... :)

    • Congratulations and Welcome to the BDW forum!!  I have toured Sensatori Azul Beach Riviera Maya and it is a really nice resort. We had a group booked there a few years ago and they all had an awesome time.  I am one of the DR specialists and have stayed a few times at Now Onyx in Punta Cana.  I love, love, love the resort!!   There is an awesome adults only area & pool within the resort and they're in the process of adding a new family section with a new pool area. This is scheduled to be complated later this year.  The added bonus of adults being able to access Breathless Punta Cana is awesome, you get two resorts for the price of one! Another great family friendly resort in Punta Cana is Royalton Bavaro. They have a great lazy river with a swim up "grotto" bar, flow rider, tot water play area, mini golf, and Casino and sports bar/disco. There really is something for everyone. Now Onyx and Royalton Bavaro are both new resorts that just opened in the past few years. Rooms are modern&contemporary, food is great at both!  Please contact us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if we can answer any questions for you, send resort info, and check group rates for you.  We do not charge any service fees for our services and we're here to make the planning process as stress free as possible for you!! Thank you! TA Patty    
    • Hi there!! Congrats on your engagement. You have definitely come to the right place to plan your destination wedding -- this site is a gold mine for ideas and tips for destination couples. I was a destination bride myself 10 years ago and lived on this site obsessively for 2 years For the Dominican Republic, I think a great resort that fits what you're looking for is Now Onyx! They have amazing swimup suites, they are an oceanfront resort and best of all, they have both an incredible adults only section with the best pool area and a family friendly areas as well. The adults in your group will also have access to Breathless Punta Cana, which is next door where they have a great nightclub and casino but they can also use all the amenities there as well (as long as the property has not been bought out for your travel dates).  I along with a few agents of Wright Travel Agency, which is the official agency of this forum, stayed there for 4 days this past January and I was thoroughly impressed with the accommodations, amenities, food and excellent service. Also, they have an amazing wedding team there that does everything to please couples and give them the wedding of their dreams! If you want information about this resort and pricing, I suggest you contact Wright Travel Agency and one of their Dominican Republic specialist will get back to you! Wright Travel also has exclusive promos and discounts to many resorts -- including this one. There is a great promo called the Bride and Groom Fly Free credit, which can save you up to $1,000!!! You can contact them here www.wrighttravelagency.com or email directly at info@wrighttravelagency.com  Hope that helps and again, congrats!!! ❤️ 
    • I recommend reading this article
    • I'm looking to see if anyone has had a wedding at Dreams Riviera Cancun or any other resorts in Cancun with around 60 guests and could let me know how much they paid TOTAL for the ceremony, cocktail, and dinner reception. This includes flowers, decor, makeup hair, DJ, and all misc.  Thank you!
    • Hello Everyone, I am new here, I heard about this site from a friend of mine that had a destination wedding back in 2012 which was beautiful.  I am leaning towards the DR if I find a place that has all that I am looking for if not Mexico is another great option. Thinking of May 2020 if that is enough time to plan this! I like modern looks, all inclusive for sure.  I definitely want the beach very very close to the pools and rooms, a swim up bar is a must.  I really like the idea of the swim ups in the rooms if possible.  I am going to have friends that bring their kids so it can't be adult only.  I do want to get married on the beach which seems like most of the all inclusive resorts offer. My friend got married at the SENSATORI AZUL BEACH RESORT RIVIERA MAYA and it had all I would want in a resort if anyone has stayed there and has any advice. Thanks for all the help ahead of time.   M&B
