    I'm trying to find pictures of beautiful gray hair as inspiration for me as my hair is very gray at this point. I still color my hair regularly, but it's getting very dry and I'm afraid of the damage.

    Most pics I found were of white people. Does anyone have beautiful pics of gray haired black women?


    Danysedai and Sherrylove's mothers have inspired me too! (Their pictures are in separate threads.)
    ETA I forgot to mention our own beautiful Suburbanbushbabe!

    My grandmother has beautiful gray hair, but none of my pics do it justice. :nono:
    Have you tried henna, amla, or indigo if the dye is damaging your hair? Just wondering. Amla is more gradual but it definitely darkening.

    I don't think you're going to find many pictures of black women with gray hair. We tend to dye our hair until the good Lord comes a knocking.

    I don't plan (at this time) to ever dye my hair.

    I most beautiful gray hair I've seen in IRL was a older woman in Walmart. She was a beautiful black woman, about 70 and you could tell she took pride in her looks, esp her BSL silver hair. Now that's my dream gray hair, but I want it to be maybe MBL or waist.

    The gray hair looks good...on them. I plan to fight it until I am in my 70s.

    jhirmack silver brighting poo and Clairol Shimmer Lights are the best poos for gray hair. I've used both of them and they kept the gray for being brassy.

    Although I don't want to go gray any time soon... I want my whole head to be silver when I'm older! I love the way it looks!

    I've been searching online, and you're right, it's extremely rare to find AA women w/ gray hair, especially if its long. If I see a black woman w/ long gray hair IRL, usually it's in a high bun or PS.:yep:

    The member Suburbanbushbabe (?) I know the spelling is wrong--has beautiful gray hair--I'll see if I can find her pic.

    I love beautiful gray hair on black women--when I get mine I hope it comes in beautiful, I plan on embracing it :yep:

    This is an awesome thread. I'm already starting to get a lot of gray hairs and I don't plan on coloring them.
