    Funny, I am actually scared and excited about letting my hair go gray. It is actually helping me accept that I am getting older. I am 46 and so excited to watch myself morph into age…

    just stopped dying in April 2017. Just threw out my drawer full of coloring supplies this week!
    Starting to get some weird looks but I don’t care, its so fun to beat the system.
    Thanks for your blog.

      Hi Mary, Congratulations. Don’t worry about the weird looks, they will no doubt in time lead to looks of admiration. It’s such a freeing feeling to make the decision to stope dyeing your hair, even though it is not always an easy one. Thank you for your lovely comment and I am glad you like the blog. It is an absolute pleasure 🙂

    I am on the fence, so I needed to read this article! I am tall (5’10”) with thick, wavy hair that reaches my behind. I color it myself and have done so for about 40-years (I am 60).
    I wear my hair in either one or two thick braids and I get compliments on my hair all the time. So, it makes it “scary” to think of letting a “sure thing” go. But I am testing the waters; I have not colored my hair in about 1.5 years. My natural hair color is now a salt and pepper (with a fair amount of silver coming in) and only my long braids remain blonde. It would be so liberating to not have to color my hair anymore (which is quite time-consuming). And I certainly would not miss the mess and what it must be doing to my poor scalp! Also, it would be “interesting’ to see the sliver growth pattern come in. Recently, I have seen some stunning models (my profession in my youth) embrace their silver locks. They are beautiful. It also takes confidence to embrace who you are and I like that message. My husband prefers the blonde but is supportive of my decision. The way I see it, “Silver is also a light color like the blonde…it’s just a different shade of light.” I just returned the (3) boxes of hair color I had kept “just in case” …and, I think I am going to do this!!!!

    1. Wow, I think you have made the decision-the first step. Your hair sounds absolutely beautiful and I can imagine it will be even more so when it is completely natural, since it will likely be in great condition. It makes it easier when you have a supportive husband. My husband wasn’t sure when I made the decision but he and my children are now my biggest advocates. Make sure you hook up with me on Instagram if you are on social media as I would love to see your progress and there you will find some invaluable support.
