If you are in your 30s or 20s or in the earlier teenage phase, the day the first grey peeks through on your head, the shock prevails, and the first question that bothers you is, ” Why me?”
Age 30 is regarded as the initial age for greying hair. Going grey before this age is assumed as “Premature Greying”.
Now, what I think regarding grey hair is that there is no age specification for getting grey hair. We have several examples of children around the world going grey in their childhood due to various causes comprising of heredity, dandruff, genetics, vitamin deficiencies, diseases and many more..so whatever age you are, there is a chance of greying.
Grey hair is an inevitable part of ageing. In earlier stages, it can be slowed down or controlled by medication after knowing the possible reasons, but unfortunately, it’s an irreversible process. With ageing, the follicles make less melanin causing grey hair.
Thought prevails that dark-haired people turn grey earlier, but greys are more noticeable with dark hair. Being fair-haired or blonde easily blends white or grey hair with natural skin colour. There are so many popular gray hair myths that we must know as awareness so that we may know the possible reasons for hair going gray and may look in for the treatment or embrace it with confidence.
So, talking about embracing the gray hair. It’s getting easier and easier. So many women around the world joined together the ‘Grevolution’. Encouragement and inspiration are flowing through various social media platforms. It’s easy to get a supportive environment on these various platforms.
As this blog is all about knowledge and encouragement throughout this journey of self-acceptance, there are Gray Hair Transition stories to inspire you. Taking you to the real-life experiences of this journey. Also, Gray Hair Care knowledge with tips and recommendations from our silver sisters.
If you are in a dilemma and have a misconception that gray hair will make you ‘look old’, have a look at these gorgeous ladies of all ages flaunting their natural silver crowns, sharing their short transition stories, before and after pictures and real-life experiences of this journey.
The most challenging part of this journey can be the grey hair roots that keep on widening as they grow. It results in a separation line between the grey and coloured hair, also known as the skunk or the demarcation line.
A few initial months seem long as it seems that our hair has stopped or slowed down growth, especially during the cold turkey grow-out process.
Some days can be difficult to accept our hair. To stay strong with patience and let the day end is the key.
During weak days use Root Touch-ups and be ready for the world.
If the skunk line seems to be unbearable, opt for a Pixie, as it’s trending in the community as the quickest and easiest way of transition.
Or try blending the skunk line at home if your hair is in excellent condition to bear further chemicals.
Other than this, there are many temporary ways to deal with the low point days like hats, scarfs, bandannas, headbands, wigs etc. My favourite has always been a bright red or pink lipstick.
Gray hair doesn’t make you look old. It’s a natural process; as we age, we start fading our skin colour as well as melanin from our hair.
Embracing our age makes us look ‘The Real Us’. There are so many essential things in life than just stucking into our hair, feeling the guilt of ‘why me?’. Live your life to the fullest.
Explore and enjoy little things in life. And don’t forget ‘Gray is just a new colour’. So embrace it or colour it up, and do whatever makes you happy.
My hair is happier and healthier after switching to moisturizing products keeping away frizz from my hair.
