The Case For Rocking Those Gray Hairs

Own those silvery strands, sis!

Posted on

So, instead of giving into the box dye and shame, tons of women are now posting on Instagram all the ways they've decided to "reclaim" gray and white hair.

"I started getting white hairs at the age of 16, and I have been dyeing them since then (I'm currently 34). I stopped last November because I found dyeing them so often really annoying, because the gray hairs would come back so quickly. I love the gray hair trend, so I decided to let my hair do the work naturally. I'm really inspired by other women on Instagram and for the time being I am loving the adventure!" —Vicky


In any case, whether you're just starting to go gray...

"Suddenly having visible gray hairs on your head when you've been a brunette all your life is a big deal. But I'm stubborn, and I am finally starting to accept, and have even come to like, what I see in the mirror." —Trin


And it's way less hassle this way!

"I've been dyeing my hair for more than twenty years, and I had never even thought of stopping because I thought I would just look terribly old! Then, as I got older, the more people started caring about how old they were, the less I did, and I decided to rid myself of the burden of my weekly dye! That's how I accepted my gray hairs, and I am happy and proud of them!" —Marina
