Short Haircuts for Growing Out Gray Hair

A modern cut with clean edges can be a game-changer while growing grey hair.

Going gray is a process, and it takes time.

And YOU are the BOSS who decides how long it’s going to take for you. Opting to keep the desired length of hair during this process is a personal choice depending on the perception and comfort of the person embracing grey hair.

Getting on this journey with long, medium, or short hair, keeping your silvers healthy, brightening, and getting regular trims can be a game-changer.

A good haircut and fashionable hairstyle can make you feel better and more confident throughout the journey. Also, a manageable length keeps the frizz under control.

A stylish haircut can always minimize the difficult stages of growing out grey hair.
If you are always in a hurry and looking for a haircut that is easy to maintain and style and easier to wash and dry, short hair is for you.

Here are a few good reasons that women find it more convenient and prefer going short during the transition:

# Fastens the Transition

Short hair takes less time to complete the transition, whereas long hair takes more. For example, on average, shoulder-length hair takes about two years to complete the transition, and longer than that may take more time.

Here’s a chart showing the average time hair takes to grow out and reach the desired hair length to complete the transition:

# Reason for Distraction

Cutting off hair during the transition can distract your mind from the slow process of growing out hair, as it seems during the initial months that the hair growth has stopped or slowed down.

# Carry Skunk Line for a Shorter Time

Women embracing their natural hair via the cold turkey method need to carry the skunk or the demarcation line throughout the process. So, if the hair is short, it takes a shorter time to bear the demarcation line between the dyed hair and the silver roots.

# Grows Back

It is better to cut the extra weight of dull and damaged dyed hair than carry it for months and years. In fact, it is easier to grow the hair again after the transition.

I have been using Kerotin Intensive Hair Growth System for the last 6 months with Biotin to speed up the growing process.

# Youthful Look

I have heard it, read it several times, and experienced it myself that short haircuts give you a more sophisticated and youthful look. I opted to go with a short pixie, which really suited my face and personality.

  2. I too decided to transition during the pandemic. I was tired of coloring and was curious to see what my hair would look like. I cut my hair to a very short pixie, I almost shaved my hair off! My transition took only one year and I am now extremely happy with my decision.
