My hair is going grey fast and I am happily letting it go grey naturally. I like the grey as it is a beautiful colour. I would need to dye it every two weeks to tackle the regrowth. Interestingly, I have had plenty of comments about my hair and some positive and some negative. Women have commented on how lovely it looks and men have made the comment “looks like you need your roots done!” The latest comment was “are you near retirement age?” Retirement is a long, long way off! These comments do amuse me but also sadden me with stereotyping. I will continue with it going grey as I am confident within myself and my choices and hair colour or lack of does not define me. It is an individual choice and I make no judgement on anyone for colouring their hair as it is an individual choice. I am simply interested in other people’s experiences/stories with going grey/not going grey and their feelings about hair and age. Do others think it ages a person? Or is it in the mind?
