When those first gray hairs start weaving through our richly pigmented young hair, our first instinct is to cover those suckers up. Who wants to look at gray hair in their 30s? Year by year we struggle with managing our color and how to plan our lives around visiting the hairdresser for that 'root job'. And let's not forget about all the effort we put forth between the hair visits, the powders, creams, and whatever else we buy that will conceal those bold crooked gray strands. What brought me to this realization? I don't know! Something made me start craving to see how I would look and feel with gray hair. I don't want to look 10 years older which is the fear that kept me from taking this leap before. Now I have no fear! I will embrace this new season in my life! Bring on the salt and pepper! I feel an under-lying authenticity trying to break through and hope this journey will be very telling. These images show a month grow out with a need for dye. Part of this journey will be addressing makeup and wardrobe changes.
Imagine, I'll be able to dunk my hair in the pool without concern for ruining the color. I'm sure there will be many positives as I
create new recipes for this period of my life.
