    ok any grey/white dreads here..i am 48 and very grey-short hair- but have started my journey
    Grey seems harder to dread as it is courser and straighter
    Anyone here successful at growing grey dreads(90% grey now):ha:eek:

    Hello :) how long is your hair? and are you trying to back comb/crochet? or just separate over time? plus you probably already know the difference in Dr B and almost everything else of a shelf for washing your hair. I have very coarse hair, and at one point was "chemically" straightened. They are still doing their thing normally.

    good luck

    of course your gray hair will dread! but you will need to have a little length to it before you see the progress.

    yea i got grey dreads in my beard
    im just 6 years yiounger then you but so far the heads only gotten a few random greys

    outta all the dreads i know i think at least 1/2 are grey dreads, around here theres alotta yioung dreads and new dreads, but more of the dreads i know from all ovedr have had theyres many years, and several started later in life
    grey dreads definately look great on everyone so lets see em

    id probly be lil hesitant to backcomb as i think grey hair maynbe lil more prone to breakage, but ther good news is it shouldnt make it any harder to go natural
    id give natural a good try, several months at least then if theres no progress at all try twist n rip gently just to get it started, but i dounbt it will be nesacary

    was just looking through my galewry trying to find some pics of some greydready freinds but got lazy and thought google might be quicker ..when u type in grey dreads u get scatteredleaves sig opic on page 1 alotta synthetic dreads goth chick dreads and only 1 id really call grey dreads in the 1st dozen
    but f ya come on out to the new mexico gathering in july you'll see plenty of grey dreads that look amazing
