A youthful appearance is something many people in our culture feel pressured to maintain. Coloring our hair has been the norm for so many years that millions of people instinctively reach for the hair dye at the first signs of gray hair. Some people, however, are choosing to buck the trend and go natural. Here are four great reasons to go gray.
Gray Represents Power and MaturityGray represents years of professional and personal life experience. People with gray hair exude a sense of authority and power. Think of the way men with salt-and-pepper hair automatically seem more distinguished. According to Bellatory, gray is the new blonde. Gray hair can be lush, long and elegant. If you choose the right style, you can truly have it all with gray hair. Your gray locks can represent power and maturity as well as beauty and style.
Gray Saves Time and MoneyThe cost of visiting a salon every six weeks can really start to add up. Depending on how quickly hair growth occurs, many individuals may opt for even more frequent visits. Considering that it’s not unusual to pay $100 or more to have your hair colored at a salon, you can end up paying $1,000-plus annually. Even if you do it yourself, the time and mess involved can be completely eliminated by going gray.
Gray Is Environmentally FriendlyMost of the chemicals used in hair color are not nature friendly. Each time the dye is washed out of your hair, it ends up in a local waterway. Earth 911 states that ammonia has been associated with increased acid levels in soil. Chemicals that are known to be in hair dye, such as ammonia, have also been found in our water supply.
Gray Is Who You Really AreGone are the days of trying to look like a carbon copy of someone else. People everywhere are striving to embrace their individuality. Letting your natural hair pigment, or lack thereof, shine through can be part of this process. By the time most people have a considerable amount of gray hair, they’ve reached a point where they’re comfortable in their own skin. Letting your locks go gray tells everyone around you that you’re confident and happy with the person you’ve become
Not only does gray hair save money, help the environment, and reveal what a gorgeous person you are inside and out, but also now even the rich and famous are embracing the trend.
