    I'm 40, been on this board since I was 26! The greys around my hairline and in the middle of my crown are rampant! I'm using henna and indigo every 2 months or so. Messy, but it works for me.

    The grey. I fought for a while, but have decided to just let it do what it wants.

    I've noticed my hair is becoming drier and needs more product! I've started to use heavier ingredients. I haven't noticed any thinning or slowing of growth though.

    Since I last posted I too have had to keep an eye on the facial hair. So far I only am getting a few strands and they are all on the left side of my jawline. Normally I pluck them but this past summer I forgot about them and they all grew quite long so I ended up taking a razor to them, which worked quite well. Thing is, you have to get up on me to really see them...which is one of the many benefits of being dark-skinned and having relatively little body hair.

    Regarding the hair on the top of my head: The thinning seems to have stopped but the silver hairs are slowly multiplying. I love them and look forward to having more. Unfortunately I have to scrutinize the back more closely because it's getting harder to tell whether that light speck is lint.

    I have been cutting my hair progressively shorter in the last couple of years, mainly because I do WNGs exclusively and they're easier with shorter hair.
    How will your 2019 be different than any other year?

    ha, i keep a razor comb on hand for that...first there were 3, then 4, then 5....6 now i think.

    More streaks of wisdom and badges of survival(whiskers). The grays do what they want, i moisturize my hair less now than with my first set of locks when I was younger. Only RoseWater. Interesting to research the differences bt loose and locks as we age...

    I turned 46 in October!!
    I have silver hairs popping up in my hairline like crazy. I've been coloring them, but I think when they take over I will give it up. I think if I decided to restart my locks, that will be a good time to let the grey take over if there is enough of it. I cannot tell if my hair is drier, because it has always been bone dry. It is still growing fine.

    Now about other things age related...I have 1 silver hair in each eyebrow, lol! I earned those at work. I do have hot flashes in phases and they don't seem to be full blast like other people describe. For the past month, I haven't been having any (thank the Lord.) I am not a hairy person, but I do notice that I have a light 'stache that I never noticed before, lol.
