Gray’s Anatomy: Why More Women Are No Longer Coloring Their Hair

The Look To Not Dye For!

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Gray hair used to be a sign of getting older. But that was, well…the old days.

This is now!

These days more and more women are saying it’s hip to be gray.

Every where you look…magazines, billboards, TV…the trend is, clearly, to leave the locks alone. It’s a trend also embraced by Hollywood. Jamie Lee Curtis, Helen Mirren…to name just two.

On the CBS2 News at 11 p.m. Friday, Sandra Mitchell spoke with several women to find out what is behind this new no-color-for-me craze.

Gray no longer means drab. Gray now means gorgeous!

Besides gray being the hip and trendy thing to do, some women point out another obvious reason. Saving on the green. The average woman can save about $150 every 4-6 weeks by not going with color!

    I stopped coloring over a year ago and I can tell you that men dig it! I’m 45 and yes I definitely look older, but I AM older and Im cool with it! Love the extra cash,love the extra time! But gals you can’t use going grey as an excuse to not wear makeup or dress nicely.

    its hip to be gray?? yea right.. do you know what gray would do to my complexion??

    Here’s another reason to skip coloring hair: All permanent and semi-permanent hair hair dyes (except for natural ones like henna) contain phenylenediamene, which is a carcinogen — look at the ingredients on the box and you will find it.

    Say what you want, but a woman looks old with gray hair. First impression says it all.

      Jamie Lee would look great no matter what. Cruiser’s right about 1st impressions. In the average person’s world older people are discriminated against in the job place and elsewhere.

    Ladies please keep coloring your hair. I enjoy the entertainment. I get to laughing so hard sometimes my sides hurt. You see this old bag with this bleached hair that looks like something they plucked of a dog or at best stolen off a rag doll and a face that looks like 50 miles of bad road and they think they look younger and nobody can telll how old they really are. Gee ladies your not fooling anyone one only the old fool thats coloring her hair. Men may be dumb but we are not blind. Want to look younger? Save the money you spend on coloring your hair and spend it on a diet or trips to the gym. Your non grey hair doesn’t cover up your beer belly or the blubber hanging out everywhere from under your out dated shirt from when you were 20 years old. Personally speaking a woman with grey hair that is well kept, styled and fashionable for her age is very attractive. And if you think along with your dull dyed hair with no shine or sheen looks great with your new tattoo you probably think fresh road kill is a delicacy also. LOL
