Let’s get personal, like really really personal today.
Let’s talk about grey hair. I know, it’s terrifying! Especially if you’re experiencing it.
To be honest, I never thought about grey hair when I was younger. I never thought about Botox or any anti-aging for that matter. I never really pictured myself old. Ridiculous, I know! & this is probably going to sound so crazy but to people who have known me they can vouch for what I’m about to say… I to the absolute core of me was always convinced that I would die at 27. WAIT! Don’t close the browser! I’m not an insane person! I just, from a young age, had this feeling that that was my fate. Imagine my surprise when I had both my 28th and 29th birthdays. This year I’m turning 30 and to me that’s still very young. I’m young at heart, some might say immature even. I shouldn’t have grey hairs! I just shouldn’t, it doesn’t suit my personality. I have nothing against a nice salt and pepper ‘do. I grew up idolizing Stacy London from What Not To Wear. Everything she did was effortlessly chic, including her grey streak of hair right up front. I loved it. It was classy, fabulous and age appropriate. On her.
So here I am on the eve of 30 and it has become a tireless battle. One that I’m not sure I’m suited to win if the only option is forever dyeing my roots endlessly. I’ve never been that girl. I’m the girl who’s gone over a year without a color or cut before. I know, gross. Yeah, whatever. Up until recently it never really mattered but now the stark contrast of the white hairs (right along my hairline ps) against my dark brown hair is just so not ideal. The beanies Winter has allowed me use of have been my only saving grace and as much as I’m looking forward to warmer temperatures I’m fearing ponytails and my hair aging period.
