SharePoint 2013 - Enable User Profile for Editing

I want to be able to allow SharePoint users to edit their own profile - what is the best way to do this?

Mohit NairSenior AssociateCommented:
Users cannot edit all the properties for their profile as users are being crawled from AD to SharePoint. Therefore, properties like department, manager  and phone number can be edited from AD or from SharePoint central administration. General information like profile picture, status can be edited by users from their own mysite.

Mohit - i've seen in SharePoint permission where "edit personal User Information" - Edit Personal User Information  -  Allows a user to change his or her own user information, such as adding a picture -- which we can enable and disable.  

But after enabling it, the fields are still grayed out.  I figure since the permission is there, I can allow users to change their AD profile information.
