    Do you dye your hair? - Three years ago when I was 40 I decided not to dye my hair for about six months to find out my true hair color. I'm salt and pepper all over. I used to have beautiful golden blond hair when I was younger. Now I had more gray hair than my 75 yr old father! I want to color my hair for at least 7 more years until I'm 50 yrs old.
