25 Women Who Refused to Meet Beauty Standards and Stopped Dyeing Their Gray Hair


“I have a feeling that I read a ‘silver hair rule’ that said to not sport dark… that it’ll clean you out or something? Here is to disrupting the entirety of the norms at that point, since I am finding that I love the manner in which I look in silver (hair and clothes!)!! Also, some other shading I need to wear!”


“I was too youthful to be in any way dim, I was excessively hesitant, I would look excessively old, and I stressed a lot over other’s opinion. These were the questions and fears that kept me shading my hair like clockwork. Yet, in reality, I adored seeing ladies with their characteristic silver hair, they motivated me, and I longed for the fortitude to make that stride.

I almost lost my nerve a couple of times throughout the following year. The most exceedingly terrible was being labeled in photographs. I could envision old companions heaving ‘Did you SEE that pic of Laurel? Has she at any point let herself go!’ But then one day a trim removed the remainder of the phony tone. I started to recover again and the hair I had lost became back in. Lastly, a portion of the pressure grays offered spot to brunette again until one day I glanced in the mirror and understood my fantasy had worked out as expected: I have my grandma’s streaks all things considered.”
