This is better, softer and less severe than the previous model. I love putting grey hair on my dolls. Part of that comes from trying to get used to the idea, with my own personal look, of my once-black hair turning grey too, because I refuse to color it. Age is providing this natural procession of change, like fall colors on trees, and I will do my best to accept it. However, if my hair starts shedding like leaves, then I'm in big trouble!
