Darlings, your girl is in the October issue of Health Magazine!! I’m seriously blushing. When I decided to embrace my grey nearly 20 years ago, I never could have imagined that going grey would get me featured in a magazine.
I say this it all the time… going grey is EMOTIONAL! For those of us who have embraced our grey, we all have a very special story to tell. While the journey is so personal to each woman, I’ve realized that the emotions felt throughout the process are so very similar.
Health Magazine did a beautiful job of capturing the silver journey of eight women (myself included!). For most of us who have embraced our grey, we can recall moments of feeling insecure or a fear of being perceived as old. As if we weren’t hard enough on ourselves, we can also recall how others made us feel during the process — from the stares, harsh comments, and even encouragement from our friends and loved ones to cover it up. Finally, there’s the ultimate feeling of liberation and a new found confidence. It truly is the kindest act of self-love when we finally embrace our grey.
I’m so proud to be a part of the silver hair movement. Darlings, go grab yourself a copy of the October issue of Health Magazine to read our personal journey, tips, and beauty advice for the silver lining in going grey!
