Welcome ~ you have probably stumbled across my blog page by searching on the web for items to do with women and grey hair. Maybe you are grey already or are thinking about it and just need a little bit of inspiration to take the plunge?
Well, I am grey and I am proud! Not the old 'over the hill' grey - but the new generation 'grey and chic' grey. And, I want to inspire other women to have the confidence to give grey a go. I want women to have choice. I'm not saying that women should not dye their hair - but they should have the confidence to choose. There is a huge trend for women going grey and it is becoming very popular.
The way I see it, the beauty of grey hair is one of nature's best kept secrets and is only revealed if you give it a try. If you don't like it, you can always dye again. The most important thing to keep in mind is not to be afraid and don't be put off by other people's opinions. You will get people who will be negative about it, even your closest family and friends, especially during the transitioning phase when your hair will most likely look a mess. Keep focused and keep in mind the end goal. Only then will you see the new you - and then you can judge if you like it.
And, remember, it's only hair!
Ode to Grey
Oh to be grey, as grey as can be.
Grey is a colour, the colour for me.
I am not old, nor have I let myself ‘go’.
I am just me … real, don’t you know?
It’s great to be free, not a slave to the root.
Got tired of the dye, so I gave it the ‘boot’!
And then so I say, as I go on my way …
‘I’m not invisible - it’s OK to be grey!’
Why I Dared To Be Grey ...
