Going Gray Update #3: I’m Done!!!

A little over a year ago, I decided to stop coloring my hair (Going Gray). I’d started to feel uncomfortable hiding my silver while I was spending my days helping folks deal with growing older. I kept a box of fire red in the closet, though, just in case it was a disaster.
I got through the difficult early phase (Going Gray Update) by hiding my hair under thick headbands that (mostly) covered the gray.
I kept going through the multi-colored stage (Going Gray Update #2), emotionally fortified by splurging on great cuts by Stacey Lyn Weinstein of Loft 26 in Manhattan.
And now I’m done!!! And I love it. I’m a silver sister. Thanks, to those who encouraged me along the way.

  1. It's a softer look and definitely flattering on you. I went gray a couple of years ago. I actually went gray about 3 times and then would feel mousy or boring and dye my hair again. This last time, I am sticking with it. I like saving money on hair dye, saving time on dying my hair, and the compliments I get from 90 year old ladies!

  2. Thanks, Jill and Kristen. K, I did some reading on hair dyes and they don't sound healthy to me, so aside from the compliments from old ladies, that seemed like another good reason to stop.

  3. Thanks, Lynn. Today a coworker who was horrified by my decision to stop coloring my hair ("Are you being lazy? You look ten years older!") actually complimented me on my hair, saying it looked great.
