It’s no secret that natural hair color is now becoming a myth. With so many celebrities, models, social media stars, and influencers switching up their natural-born shades for hues on the complete opposite end of the color spectrum, it’s near-impossible to track down what someone’s original hair looks like.
However, it seems that gray is now the new black! As much as some women hate their natural gray hair, majority are now ditching the dye and rocking their gray. Here are 30 women who ditched dyeing their hair, and they look so good that it may convince you to do the same.
Martha Truslow Smith, who founded the Instagram account grombre, believed that women should not feel embarrassed for having gray hair, and should embrace their roots instead.
“The underlying reason I started Grombre was to start a different dialogue around gray hair on women and find the answer to some earnest questions of my own: “Is it true that my gray hair is ugly, makes me look old, and means I’m no longer good enough?
I’m only in my twenties. If that is true, how will I feel and what will I believe about myself when I’m in my 40s, 50s, 60s? I want to challenge the way we think about what we consider ‘beautiful,’ and why, and propose that we have more important things to spend our precious time, energy and resources on if we find our hearts aren’t aligning with the things we find to be someone else’s biases.”
The 26-year-old then noted that this movement is not meant to attack those who dye their hair, but it’s simply reminding everyone that they have a choice.
“This isn’t said to knock anyone who is dying their hair- if you enjoy it, go for it! If you don’t, then the question I ask is: should you have to?
Don’t fret over others opinions, instead, follow your calling, and you’ll surprise yourself with how strong you are and where your path will lead you.”
