Righteous Life = Grey Hair???

"Gray hair is a crown of splendor; it is attained by a righteous life." (Proverbs 16:31)

I'm hoping this is a mistranslation. Maybe it means that living to an old age is the reward of a righteous life, not the grey hair! Grey hair looks distinguished on men, but I don't know many women that enjoy getting grey hair! I've heard many theories on the cause of grey hair. Some say that it's a nutritional deficiency, and now the latest research states that it's a build up of hydrogen peroxide due to wear and tear of our hair follicles.

Whatever the cause, I refuse to grow old gracefully, and I'm thankful for hair dyes that help me feel younger just a little longer! Someday, as my mom says, I may be proud of every grey that I've earned, but that hasn't happened yet!! Grey hair may be a sign of wisdom, but why can't I have wisdom and a youthful appearance!
