So why are women disgusted by men with...uuuhh, platinum (silver? gray?) hair? Just because we look old doesn't mean we are old...much.

Disgusted seems a but strong. It's normal personal preferences, and perhaps self insecurity if you have it. Women might not like men with grey hair, or no hair, or a big belly or bad breath or red hair or too many muscles, or badly dressed, or being too young, in the exact same way some MEN might not like women with grey hair or no hair, or a big belly or bad breath or red hair or too many muscles, or badly dressed, or being too young for them. It's okay to be older. 🙂


Gray or silver hair is sexy on men and women both.


I'd bet it's not so much the hair, but everything that's under the hair.

Right on, brother!

@Connolly42 A little sensitive? My comment was a general response to your general comment about silver hair on men. How was I to know you were talking about yourself only? It's a big world out there and there are others with silver hair. Most here have confirmed... it's NOT the hair color. My response was correct. Sheesh.....


I don't know about other women, but I'm not disgusted by silver or gray hair. It is a natural part of getting older. I am more interested in the person, not how much hair they have or what color it is.


Women? ... I'm a woman and I love grey/platinum hair on men and women


I've never met a woman who is/was disgusted by a man's hair color.

Some youngsters might be turned off by it. Some are not.

I cannot imagine it being even a consideration for the "No" column for most women -- especially mature women.


Who exactly is "disgusted" by natural? What is truly awful is comb-overs, bad hair color, and wigs! Men Never get those things looking right, or even good. If some woman wants you to "fussy up" for her, Run! White hair is fabulous! (Note my picture, lol!)


When men go gray they are considered "distinguished" and women are just considered over the hill. The color of a man's hair does not determine how attracted I am or am not, but how he wears it. A Duck Dynasty beard of any color is a huge turn-off. How much a man bothers about his appearance is more of an indicator than hair color or even lack of hair.

That's pretty funny. Maybe.... you're chasing the wrong gals. I'm 68 years young, pretty gray... in fact, if you look up the definition of "graybeard" in a Webster''s dictonary... (anyone still have one of those?), you'll see my picture. So, subtle hint here:
Go to the local grocery store (Kroger) in my area.
Dress "business casual".
Grab a cart and put these few items in it:
Bottle of good Chardonnay.
Bottle of good Cabernet Savingon.
Several small blocks of gourmet cheese.
Imported gourmet crackers or French bread.
Now, wander around the meat/fish counters looking puzzled. Maybe occasionally stare at your shopping list. You will be amazed at how many ladies will stop to "help" you out.
NOTE: I'M MARRIED. I did this once to show my lovely wife this technique. Before she watched from a discreet distance the results of about 45 minutes of me "looking puzzled and in need of help", she didn't believe me.
There.... go try it. And glory in your distinguished "Silverness".


George Clooney may disagree that women are disgusted by silver hair 🙂

They're not. At least I've never heard of it. I'm totally fine with any color hair.


I am disgusted by men who spit on the sidewalk, silver hair or no hair.


I've never heard a woman complain about gray hair on men. Do you observe that from their reactions or have you heard them say it? I know it doesn't bother me at all.


I have never heard a woman say this


I don't think the hair is the problem.

4 with grey hair can be dead sexy...stop digging for compliments!

@Connolly42 yep! I'm.a Lancashire lass thats what we do


My girlfried was just telling me last night how much she and her colleague love men with salt and pepper hair.

I've known men with silver hair in their 20s. Not an issue.


I don’t feel that’s true in my case, and I tend to enjoy a smooth bald head too. So my friends think I’m weird ( not only because of my affection for balds ) I personally use hair dye because I don’t like my gray hair. I think socially it’s more acceptable for a female to dye her hair, but do what you want! It’s just hair! If you don’t like the new color it cut it off!

I don't know where you are meeting these women but personally I think gray is super sexy!


The vast majority of women I know have at least a little bit of a weakness for a silver fox!

Jnei Level 8 May 2, 2018

Yip, espicially if 8t is salt and peppery !


Going grey doesn’t bother me, it’s the thinning hair at the top of my head that’s the issue.

my greatest fear was going bald, I always had a high forehead even as a kid, to I am happy to be grey/white mostly now. At least I still have my hair.

@Rugglesby that’s the dream

Thank goodness going bald is not one of my problems. Our whole family sdoes not have that problem, lucky me !


It isn't women. It is another marketing ploy to make men feel that they have to 'fix' themselves. Women have gotten hit with that marketing forever. If you are cool with yourself it won't matter what anyone thinks anyway. And if you are not cool with yourself there is no Grecian formula that can help you.


Quite to the contrary, men are usually admired and sought after regardless of their hair color. It is the women who suffer from this discrimination. Men of gray hair often seek younger wonen, even 20 or more years younger. Being a vibrant woman of 68 years, I am painfully aware of this discrimination, and I assure you, I do not want to be pursued by an 80-year-old who no longer is able or wants to enjoy life.

What she said!

@ARealLifeSheldon You have, in many ways, shapes and forms, said that you have had it worse, and it appears to have clouded your understanding of the content and intent of my post.


Not something I've experienced as I get older and grayer. I think it looks great and like the way it catches the light. No ladies have complained either.


I think it's sexy. A little bit of grey is one of the things I look for. I would be turned off if I knew a man was covering it.
