Re "Why We Turn Gray" by Allan Parachini, Oct. 6: There is nothing wrong with bleached, dyed or hennaed hair if it makes people feel they are improving their appearance. There is no "problem," however, with gray- and white-haired people who continue to think young and never lose their sense of humor.
Old age has nothing to do with the color of hair or a few wrinkles. It's an attitude.
