Last year I wrote a post called Go Gray for Your Health.
To date, that article is still my most read, shared, and commented on post. Maybe I was a bit ahead of the times because earlier this month Huffington Post ran an article on Reasons Gray Hair is White Hot Again. And on Instagram, there are SO many posts now about going gray, and gray-hair fashion.
Yesterday I got a new haircut and my previously “colored” brown hair is all gone. And you know what? Gray IS the New Black! I never thought I’d be saying this, but contrary to what I wrote in my previous post, I absolutely LOVE how I look in gray hair! And after being mostly gray for about six months now, I actually think my gray hair looks better with my olive skin than my brown hair ever did. Who knew? Mother Nature did!
So if you didn’t catch my previous post Go Gray for Your Health, please read it to learn about the healthy reasons that gray is the new black! And leave a comment to let me know your thoughts on going gray? Have you gone gray? Are you considering going gray? What’s holding you back?
I definitely think there’s a stigma in the workplace about gray hair on women. Which is really too bad, because that same stigma doesn’t exist for men. Just one of the many inequities in our culture that needs to be addressed.
