Are you thinking of growing out your grays? I recently started to question my own hair coloring routine that I have relied on to hide my grays and have come to the conclusion that it’s time for me to start rocking my grays.
As an Image Consultant, Color Analysis Professional and Hair Colorist, I developed 3 questions to help guide myself to make this ‘going gray decision’.
I share these 3 questions with you in the video below and hope they help you decide whether growing out your grays may be something that is right for you either now or at some point in the future.
My plan is to share my growing out the grays journey on my YouTube channel over the coming months. To follow my journey, click ‘Subscribe’ at this link: http://www.youtube.com/user/CarolBraileyImage.
The 3 Questions I Used to Decide to Rock the Grays Are (all questions below are detailed further in above video):
1. What are your color analysis results and does gray hair color align to these results?
2. Are you okay with hair color maintenance?
3. Are you ready to truly embrace the grays?
Some people start going gray as early as their teenage years. I believe there are so many negative myths that need to be busted about having natural gray hair. In my opinion, it really is just another hair color option available to many of us at some point in our lives (some earlier than others).
I hope this blog post inspires you to wear your authenticity!
