G – Going Gloriously Gray

ad07Going Gloriously Gray – Well, I have finally decided to stop dyeing my hair. I have chosen to go gloriously gray, in all my natural brilliant shimmering tones of silver and white. That may not sound like very important news to blog about, but it’s fairly major to me.

gray 5It means I am no longer trying to impress others, keep up with the pack, attempt to look younger, or be something I’m not. I no longer need to pretend I am younger than I am. I am willing and choosing to be here in all my glorious grayness, whether or not I look older. I don’t care. And that is so exhilarating and freeing.

It can be difficult in this society, where youth and beauty are worshipped, to let my hair go gray. But I am now making different choices and I simply don’t care if that does not meet up to anyone else’s standards. It meets my standards, and that’s what is important.

gray 2I now choose to no longer put harsh, toxic chemicals in my hair (which get absorbed into my body), and to no longer pay for that on top of it. I just want to be who I am.

And I am actually excited by this, and I cannot go gray fast enough.

I am also looking forward to matching my husband, who has silvery-white hair.

Be proud of who you are!

  1. I think it’s a great choice. Helen Mirren flits between a nice grey and a blonde colour. Feel happy with who you are. It should be everyone’s aim in life. 🙂

  2. That’s awesome. I hope you go grey super fast (not something I ever imagined myself saying LOL). I love dyeing my hair to all sorts of wild colors but lately I’ve stopped — because I have this beautiful streak of grey right in front that I don’t want to cover up LOL So I know what you’re talking about. Kinda. 🙂

      Thanks – your gray streak sounds gorgeous! And I know, I’ve been thinking about this for a long time, going back and forth. I am finally ready. Don’t be afraid to be who you are! 🙂
