To Cover Or Not - A Manly Guide To Going Gray

To Cover or Not - A Manly Guide to Going Gray

Whether you’ve just found the first few stray grays or you’re well on your way to silver hair, the question on your mind is probably whether you should cover your grays or not. It can be a difficult decision to make, especially with the recent trend of young men dying their hair gray on purpose. It seems gray hair is in. Let’s take a look at a few pros and cons of covering your grays versus embracing them, and then you can decide for yourself whether you should cover them or go gray gracefully.

3 Benefits to Covering Your Grays

  1. Covering your grays can instantly shave years off of your appearance giving you a more youthful look. This can also help you feel younger by giving a huge boost to your confidence and self-esteem. 

  2. You’ll avoid any possible age discrimination related to those telltale grays. As unfortunate as it is, ageism does exist. While you shouldn’t have to, covering those grays can help avoid this issue.

  3.  Covering your grays provides the opportunity to try out a new color if you want. You don’t have to stick with trying to match your natural color. Have fun with it!


3 Benefits to Embracing Your Grays

  1. Gray hair can be sexy! Some women love gray hair. So if you’re single and looking, you may want to try the life of a silver fox.

  2. A gray mane projects maturity and demands respect. It’s a sign of the lifetime of wisdom and experience you bring to the table. It’s a badge of honor that you can wear with pride.

  3. Embracing your grays will save you time and money. No trips to the salon to hide those roots every few weeks, and you won’t have to worry about matching your beard and eyebrows when they start to gray as well.


In the end, it all comes down to what’s most important to you. There are plenty of benefits to both covering the grays and embracing them.
