Starting to go Gray. The Gray Hair Transition can be a big and daunting step.
Have you got sick of constantly having to keep up with the hair dye? Sick of the roots showing though before another expensive trip to the hairdressers? Sick of the worry of what all the chemicals in the hair coloring products are doing to your body?
Like me, you may have found yourself longing for a simpler regime, especially during lockdown when a hair appointment was off limits for many of us.
It forced us to break through the root barrier, and once we did that we realised that it wasn’t so scary on the other side. Stepping away from the hassle of dyed hair and hair colors seemed like a tantalising possibility.
But the truth is that stepping into your natural grey hair is a scary thing to do. You may get berated by friends and family telling you that you have “let yourself go” or are going to “look old”.
Sometimes it seems that others are far more invested with what we do with our hair than we are ourselves.
That’s why the support of a wonderful gray hair blog is so important. By reading the stories of these beautiful women you realise that you are not alone. Many other women went through the worry of transition when stepping way from having coloured hair.
As you transition to silver hair you will become part of the phenomenon that is sweeping the world right now.
The Gray Hair Movement.
Thousands of women have had enough of the tyranny of coloured hair and are breaking away back to their natural color. The Gray Hair Movement is growing fast.
So take a look at the blogs of these amazing women. Here you will find a wealth of information about your journey in each post.

Once you decide to step away from colored hair you won’t look back. Keep strong and you will be so glad that you turned your back on permanent hair dyes.
The Gray Hair Movement provides the inspiration to step away from the dye bottle for good…
