Growing Out The Gray – Four Month Mark


Finnfemme: Going Gray







It’s been four months since I last colored my hair/started going gray, and I thought I’d give a ‘progress’ report.


Let me tell you that I am loving this process because you don’t have to do anything. Just let the hair grow out to whatever color it intends. No more messy dyeing, and using all sorts of products ‘to protect the color’ (which they invariably never did).

As you can see from the picture, I’ve got a good stretch of natural color coming in. It’s quite fascinating to see the array of taupe, pewter, gray and silver strands; kind of like nature’s highlights. The new growth seems very healthy and glossy, and my sensitive scalp is thanking me for not being exposed to toxic chemicals anymore.

I now wish I had started this sooner, but realize that I had to wait until I felt completely ready to embrace the change. And embracing it I am!
