Purple toupee will show the way when summer brings you down

Friend 1: Your hair is getting really gray. I haven't seen you for almost a month, and I can definitely tell the difference.

Me: I know. It's been doing that for a long time. I think it's just accelerating now.

Friend 1: Must be stress. Have you considered dying it? You should dye it.

Me: I'm not going to dye it. I've pretty much resigned myself to the fact that I'm going to have a full head of white hair within the next five years. I just hope that girls are serious when they say they dig the look of a distinguished gentleman.

Friend 2: You can't start dying your hair. You're only 34. What are you going to do, dye it for the next forty years?

Me: I know, right? Doing that would be the equivalent of a guy who is going bald resorting to the comb-over to try and hide it. Only losers try the comb-over for forty years. I'm not dying my hair.

Hey Sean Connery is one of the sexiest men alive and look how grey he is.

If only people felt the same way about women not dying their hair, I'd be sorted.

Mind, I've made the resolution not to dye it anyway and I don't hate it. It's been five months. I can't remember how long it's been since I stopped smoking, but I do know how long it's been since I last dyed my hair.

Drink coffee ? I've heard it will turn you gray.

Your great-grandfather was white-headed at the tender age of 23, and your great-aunt died her hair red, but her roots had been completely white for years and she died at age 33. Your Aunt M and Uncle J both started going gray at the age of 13.
So it could have been worse.

I have an absurd amount of grey hair, and I'm not 30 for another 2 months. Holy sh*t, my heart just sank a little. 8/

Don't get on the hair dying train- it turns into a hellish freak ride of "maintenance" and "roots" and all sorts of lame shit.

I don't think your gray hair is too bad on you

you know, maybe you should just shave it all off and start working out at the gym all the time - you know try to go for that whole Mr. Clean look
