A good friend of mine in fact a relative once looked at my hair and said that she looked younger though she was 10 years my senior. I had started to turn gray but she had already dyed her hair. That comment was good enough for me get my hair dyed for the first time. I have since then continued dyeing my hair with a colour that almost matches my hair. The first time I did it at the salon but now I dye it at home and it is easy. I need to do it once in two months. Since I have short hair it is easy. Do your friends influence you and do you take their opinion seriously? Anything you can talk about?

Everyone, even complete strangers, want my hair color. I tell them where to go, but every head of hair is different.

I get more influence here than from off line friends for the most part. I am thinking of adding back some color to my hair. I have read a lot about conditioning with amla and will try that. Somewhere around this house I have some henna and indigo, that is what I used to color my hair with.

So pray. What advice have you taken from me? That would be an exciting experiment and hope you will like the effect.

I keep my hair blonde as I personally don't like the gray. I guess it would depend on who said what to me for it to influence me.

Any time have you ever listened to your friend and followed their advice on whatever issue?

I also dye my hair since I have some grey hair. I must say that I feel confident after that since I look younger I dye my hair once in six months as I don't want to touch more chemical stuff. I dye my hair in the hair salon since I am afraid I can't do it well by myself. Although I can ask my husband to help me, but I am afraid he will dye my hair in a mess. I can't trust him

I used Garnier and use it the way I would use shampoo. It is easy. I do leave a few gray strands to give my hair a natural look And by the way do you take advice from your friends on any issues

I am lucky enough to have a good friend that I do some trading with--she weaves some blonde and brown into my gray--and I do it every 3-4 months or so--that allows my gray to shine but not overwhelm--I am in a young person's profession--and that still influences me a bunch

@allknowing not so much really--just a way to ease in the gray

I'm glad it worked for you but I don't think I could be bothered. If they think they're ten years longer than I'm doing them a favour making them feel superior.

But I did see your photo the other day and feel you need to do nothing to enhance your looks

Many do not dye their hair. Anyway do you have any friends that advise you on any issues and you follow their advice?

Is the color you dye your hair the same color it would be if it were natural? I have never dyed mine.

My hair is between black and brown. There is a dye that almost matches my natural hair. I do keep a few gray strands just give my hair a natural aged look (lol)

My friends constantly told me I should dye my hair as I went gray very young. I never listened to them. I am fine with my natural hair.

I think it's just human to be influenced by friends and people close to us. We all at times taken advice from friends.

Honesty is what is at stake here. A real friend will be honest at the expense of making someone uncomfortable as it happened in my case.

I can take their opinion when I feel that they are right. I don't mind to take the good advises.
