Id go with "just for men" they have 9 different hair shades, and targets only the grey hairs for a natural look.

just let it go grey,if you mess the dye up you will look a right twerp,

better to have a slightly shorter style that wont show the grey so much

I have to agree, nothing wrong with grey, I can spot a 'just for men' man a mile off If you have to dye it,I would get it done professionally as it can be tricky to blend colours.

Surely there is no difference between male grey hair than female grey hair is there?...it is just a marketing ploy surely..

Greying at the temples is quite a sexy look for a guy - it hasn't done Clooney any harm.

Much better to let it go grey naturally rather than trying to defy nature, well thats what I tell myself.

Been going grey since early 20's. Now mid 30's and I always keep it short and reckon it looks quite nice tbh.

One of my mates uses just for men and you can indeed spot it a mile off.

Better to go grey than to lose your hair I tell myself!

i used to use womens hair dye, it work just the same. if youve got short hair you can get 2 dyes out of the same pack. DO NOT mix the whole lot keep a small plastic bottle and measure 1/2, keep it separate. Works fine.MIXED IT WILL EXPLODE IF KEPT IN A SEALED CONTAINER.

Don't do it. Paul McCartney. Nuff said. For some reason, grey/greying hair on a man is extremely attractive. Just wish it were the same for us women.

Extra (unrequested) advice for bald/balding men. Don't consider wigs or follicle treatments. Sean Connery/Bruce Willis. Nuff said. Embrace your masculinity!

None....you can always tell when a man has died his hair by putting him in sunlight and that horrible orange glow appears really unatractive or alternatively the Mick Mcmanus look of really pale skin and really dark hair...doesn't float many women's boats either.

Leave it natural...much sexier and shows you have confidence in yourself.

Default Don't do it! Let it be!! HA! HA!

Hi, spoke to hubby about this last week. Concluded if I was a man, I would just leave hair as it is. Such a pain to dye and to keep doing every 6 weeks, even permanent. I said how many years do I keep dying my hair till it's exceptable 4 me to go grey?. I think If u have the confidence to like your self as u r , u can do anything. Anyway looks like vote says, stay as you are.

Got to agree.

Man should grow grey gracefully.

Women should never go grey.

I agree go grey with style! My OH has very dark hair but has been going grey at the sides since he was in his early 20's. now its quite grey on the sides he just has the sides cut shorter and leaves the top and back longer.
I would suggest going for a style that suits your hair and you are confortable with. I think if you are happy with it then just leave it, as many have said prior my post it is a very attractive look on men, wish I could get away with it!

Default Stay natural

My brother has/had very dark hair and it does tend to grey faster then other colours.He tried Just for Men and thought it was awful.His hair is full of grey now.He has very thick hair and keeps it short.Women drool over him, it helps that he got all the good looks in the family.As for bald men? I drool over them.Bald men are sexy.It's true that beauty is in the eye of the beholder.Grey hair doesn't make you old, attitude does.

Ta, Been bald since my late teens, never had an issue with it EVER!!!!

BUT, when I started greying at the sides a few years ago, that really took some getting used to I can tell you, bought Grecian 2000, but when I read the label and it contains lead, I had second thoughts.

Just grow old disgracefully, that's my motto.
