Some hard, cold facts about going gray:
- Very few women have naturally fabulous great gray hair.There is not just one shade of grey, and very few women have naturally fabulous great gray hair like supermodel Carmen or actress Judy Dench. You can have gorgeous icy silvery gray or tarnished looking steel-wool gray, luminous white hair or dingy-looking gray that’s more old stainless steel than platinum. And surprise! Lots of gray-haired women you think are “natural” actually go to a salon and have the color brightened or enhanced with cool toned streaks to give the color that appealing look.
- Gray hair is coarse and lacks shine.You need every bit as much maintenance to keep the texture shiny, glossy and healthy-looking as you do when you color your hair. This means moisturizing shampoos and conditioners, hair masks to deeply hydrate, and blow-drys because smooth hair reflects more light.
- Gray hair that is just grown long looks neglected.Gray hair that is just grown long looks neglected – as if you just don’t care anymore. You can wear gray hair long, but it should be cut long to add style and polish. Or you can decide to go for a shoulder-length bob or layers – but don’t think you’re off the style hook.
In other words, if you decide to go gray, fine – but do it with style and with the knowledge that your self-confidence about your looks comes not from the gray but from how well you gray.
