Each generation changes the world we live in. Baby Boomers are changing the world and its attitudes through their sheer numbers. ‘Attitudes to grey hair’ is one of those areas where women are challenging established stereotypes.
You either fall into one of three groups – you’ll colour it until the day you die; you’ll let it go grey someday but not today; or you have let it go grey or are in the process of letting it go grey.
For those Baby Boomers either grey, going grey or thinking about it in the future, here’s a website to investigate.
Jayne Mayled from the UK founded this small company. She only sells products for grey hair. The real interesting thing about her is that she is asking you to join the movement and join the rule breakers (including myself) who are standing up and embracing their grey hair. Forget invisibility. Women are now proudly and confidently wearing their grey hair in modern and stylish ways.
The website also has an article – ‘Go Grey Gloriously’ with 10 tips from a hairdresser if you are thinking of taking the plunge. The part she misses and I and others have experienced, is the opposition you may receive from someone close to you. Get your reasons for going grey solid first. Briefly tell them when asked. Do not get caught up in justifying your reasons. It is your decision; so let the other person face his or her fears and come to terms with your decision.
Looking after Grey , Silver or White Hair – White Hot Hair has 6 products for looking after your grey or greying hair. My hairdresser recommends a shampoo with a touch of purple in it to make grey hair sparkle. I prefer to keep using my Neways gentle Silken shampoo. I do use Moroccan Argan Oil to take the fluffiness out of my greying hair. Get a great haircut and if you choose, you can still add foils for a dramatic or interesting look.
Grey hair can be dull, granny or glorious. It’s your choice.
