You can buy good suits (with slacks or skirts) that don't have to be dry cleaned. Pre-loved is just fine. smile

If it makes you feel younger, more energetic, more empowered, then fight them off for another ten years.

3 questions:

Quality of life?
Cost?
Hassle?

If feeling and looking younger will enhance your quality of life, keep fighting. If not, or you don't want to spend the money or contiinue the hassle, let the greys go wild.

Some people are allergic to hair dye products and cannot color theirs. If that were me, I might shave my head and find a wig I really like to wear while it grows out. But wigs are hot and could be a hassle to take care of, too.

Fortunately, I bartered with my stylist when I was in my mid 40s. (details on my other thread) To this day, my mom thinks I'm allergic to hair dye and my dark hair color is natural. It is, naturally out of a bottle. wink


We're overcoming decades of marital dysfunction including abuse, passive aggression, gas-lighting & infidelity (both of us).

Cost is minimal, I only to the roots and I do it at home. I like the younger feel BUT I have to accept again at.dome stage.

Grey hair may lend to maturity to my job since I am the youngest, but youthfulness may help me relate to younger clients?

I have super long hair so dying is a hassle but not impossibly so.

Embracing my grey is much less costly than coloring it.

I also have some green, blue and sometimes purple in it, too, which is fun. Those color streaks grow out in a way that they don’t need to be refreshed until they are completely grown (and cut) out.

So, the best of both worlds... older grey and funky color. Btw, I’m 60 now but have been grey since about 30. I colored the grey until about 40.

Hmm, not sure work would think a funeral director with rainbow hair was quite the look they are going for. Tempting tho...... grin

Don’t give up yet...

The color can be applied in a way that simply moving a part can disguise it. My daughter worked at a conservative firm and they didn’t notice that her hair had become more and more purple until she was spotted outside the office.

I have friends that wear excellent quality of wigs and they look great. One lost her hair due to cancer and the other, her hair fell out and never came back in. So it's always an option.

I have autoimmune flares that impact my scalp reaction to hair dye. Some hair dyes cause less chemical burns than others. If you haven't tried it before, do some research and start with the temporary dyes first. Or you can try special shampoos that add grey or dark blue highlights.

Do what you want to do. Do what is easiest or what makes you feel better about yourself and more confident. Enjoy the journey.

That is a good point, Blair, to enjoy the journey.

I probably enjoy that more than whatever my hair looks like. I’m pretty conservative by nature so it’s interesting to track my journey post divorce by the stages of hair changes.
