At least for me that is not an issue. Although, since we have started this adventure, I am beginning to understand why all of the cruising women I have met have short hair -- hair is hot (great insulation)!

Well I did post this in the 'Women Afloat' ! Seriously though, Everyone's opinion/comment was sincerely appreciated! It gave me a new outlook and made me re-examine what was important about this very superficial process.

It is all about the tan. I just went back to SLC for a weekend everyone thought my hair was lighter, in reality I was just more tan. Maybe that is what makes gray hair more attractive !

Like I said, this has been going on for years--- I just laugh it off now although the game goes on and the hair remains short. There are more important things to worry about

Re: When To Go Gray ...

Many women don't get made up and dressed up for men. They do it to impress other women.

As for that long gray hair, let's see how good it looks after two weeks on a cruising sailboat after being exposed to wind, sun, salt water, humidity and all the rest. Maybe a few women can pull it off, but is it really worth the trouble?

Okay.....okay......OKAY! It isn't about the color or length. Jeez women! It is about what the color and/or length represents.

It has been said "If you have eyes, then SEE!"

They have no chance of looking as good as we men, who always look their best with a week's worth of beard growth and a bad case of beanie hair, assuming that we have any to worry about Now, do men dress for women, or to please other men, or just to please their bloody selves?

Coops.

Generally I dress only because I would get arrested if I walked around town naked.

Strange town you live in

uuh, for all you ladies, men dress up because they want to attract/look good you all of you. left to ourselves , old baggy short and a t-shirt is going formal.

regarding the gray bit, gray hair can be beautiful. And salt soaked wind sprayed hair can be the sexiest thing around. We like our women to look like they are alive!

Here's a truism that most women know but don't believe. A lean woman in a miniskirt can a man to do anything she wants. All she has to do is ask. Hell, most of the time we'll run around like chickens without heads trying to find something to please a lady like that.

I have a personal preference for long hair on gals. Most woman look better with. Some can pull of the short hair bit - but not many.
