#greyhairmovement


I am turning 40 this year and I want to grow out my grey hair. I have had grey hair since 17 and I have been coloring since then. I have developed female pattern hair loss since the age of 25 and I lost a lot of hair after having a kid. Now I am using medication to hold onto whatever hair is left for me. I have noticed that I am greying rapidly. I saw some women starting this #greyhairmovement on Instagram and they are doing the hard work and loving it. I decided to give it a go and the last time I colored my hair was on 31st May 2021. It has been 50 days since I colored them and my greys are prominent. My reasons to go grey are- freedom from going to the parlor, checking out what that looks like, practicing the skill of patience, and self-acceptance. But the real reason is that I want to see how it looks, as coloring my hair is always available for me. I like how I see in the mirror. My husband wonders why I am doing this and I get upset when he utters even one word which is not supportive of me. Two of my colleagues mentioned it and I told them off. I faced similar resistance from my external world when I lost weight and people kept saying that I look too skinny but the whole time my husband supported me. I am afraid I won’t be able to go grey because he doesn’t support me this time. Please help me see that I can do this without my husband’s support.
