"I noticed about 12 years ago that I was starting to get gray hairs and started to dye it immediately because it felt like the culturally appropriate thing to do. I wasn’t surprised because my parents went gray pretty early and I grew up watching them dye their hair. It’s just part of life.
I HATED how my hairline looked when my grays would start to grow out (which was every 5 weeks), so I talked to my colorist about it for a full year before taking the plunge. She came up with a plan to help the transition not be so stark. I’m a year into it now and I think it worked pretty well. I still have days when I want to dye it back, though. I compensate for the grays with makeup…so sometimes I’m like….if I dyed it, then maybe I would never wear makeup again."
