This is quite an interesting, yet obscure topic in relation to the whole SHTF thing - you have an interesting mind. Take it as a compliment - I like people who can think outside the norm. I myself, would definitely turn into the skunk look fast, haha. On another random slant to your own random slant, I have been wanting to make some magnetite water and strart drinking it, see what happens to my hair. I heard that for some, entire strands of grey hair turn dark, all at once. It's a really interesting concept, to imagine all the things this magnetically charged water can do for the body. I hope to get the funds to purchase materials for my own shot at it soon. Here's a link:

OP I think your views are a product of your culture.
In many cultures grey hair invokes feelings of respect and authority, knowledge and wisdom.
I don't know where you are from but it's obvious that social conditioning has taught you subconsciously that old people are useless, whether you are aware of this or not, so I would assume that you're from either the US or the UK.

But we have experience and cunning.

In every emergency big and small from plane crashes to the Titanic, people pull together and start establishes order and sharing.

I wouldn't consider the elderly to be useless eaters. They might not be able to hunt or do physical labor but all that knowledge they have about surviving without modern conveniences will be a boon to all.

You are not allowed to bring guns into a shelter.
They took the guns away from those waiting at the stadium after Katrina.

The vast majority of people in Katrina did not go to shelters and did not turn their guns over to the thugs masquerading as government help. Sure they disarmed little old ladies with pistols and a few people willing to turn them over but what the media did not show you was the many folks who told the disarmers they best be moving on if they wanted to return to their families at the end of the day...

If it's some post apocalypse scenario, with people sifting through rubble for useful items, so on and so forth - people are going to be so freaking dirty that nobody may appear to have grey hair.

Indigo, henna and walnut - presto - red to brown to black (something for everyone) and cassia for blond.
