Personally, I hate it.

Nothing wrong with a grey haired man!

My husband dyes his hair and it looks completly natural, he has a lot of hair and looks youtfull. He buys Just for Men, but his hair color is light brown, so there is no contrast. A men I work with dyes his hair too, his color is black, receding and it looks very unatural on his face.

Use a professional for the first time at least! A good professional! He'll want to go with a natural look.

My dad dyes his hair, and has for years. He puts Just for Men just on the part that's grey for almost the recommended time, then he combs it through it all for the last bit, so it blends well. I think as long as you avoide the black color (go for dark brown if you think your hair is really black), you'll be fine.

What do I think about middle aged men dying their hair? Same thing I think about middle-aged women dying their hair... it's kinda sad.

I expect to get into all kinds of trouble for saying something like, but in my line of work I need to take clues from people's appearance, voice, clothing, etc. for reasons of personal comfort and safety, so here goes....

I see a middle-aged men sporting a dye job and my "lecherous creep" antenna twitches. My unfortunate experience is that they are trying to appeal to women at least 20 years younger - like me - which usually involves the sales pitch "I'm the best lover you'll ever have, baby". So while I'm not saying your husband is necessarily like that, I'm sure I'm not the only person out there who will get that impression. So please, leave in some of the gray - it's not unattractive at all!!

What do we mean by "middle-aged"? A guy in his 30's with a lot of grey hair would be justified in dyeing it, I think.

If it makes him feel better about himself then go for it.
Men or women it should make no difference. My advise, (from a beautician) make it as natural as possible.
LIke one poster said, don't go for black even if you think your hair is black. Go for dark brown instead.
Good luck.

Guys in their 30's with grey hair get soooooooo much action it's not even funny.

My beard went gray at about age 30- it didn't change how people looked at me, my mail was not suddenly flooded with offers from the AARP.

Sounds like your husband is having a serious crisis of confidence. Maybe what you need to do is get him out running or going to the gym or something to help him build up his self esteem so that he doesn't need to dye his hair...
