Growing Grey Hair
Hello lovely grey hairs, I know first hand the debate about whether to grow out the grey hair. You all have asked over and over “how can I grow out my hair so it does not look like a white halo at the scalp?” When you embark on this journey, know that there is no one size fits all way to grow. However, there are 4 things I would suggest that you keep in mind when you are ready to make that beautiful step towards showing off your grey hair.
- It’s your Grey. Everyone will grey differently so don’t plan and expect your grey to look like someone else’s. For example, grey can grow in mixed throughout, or as a white halo around the hairline, or even a distinct streak.
- The line! If you have dark colored hair and more than 50% white hair there will be a line of demarcation where the new growth comes in. To blend the line you can use mascara when it is short, low light color for longer lengths or extensions to hide the new growth.
- Style matters. – Fast track- cut off all the colored hair and start new or for the slow route try “style blending.” Style blending is choosing a hairstyle that hides the new growth such as a soft wispy bang or adding strands of low light colors to trick the eye as you gradually grow the hair out. The low lights are good if you are anxious about growing from jet-black hair to white hair. Consider a new haircut or a fresh new style that will detract from the different hair colors. Style is important so you don’t look like an old lady with grey hair. If you are not good at styling your own hair, it is money well spent to pay a professional to give your grey hair a finished look .
- Own it! Make that grey hair shine and show your personality. If you are feeling insecure about it seek professional guidance to help you know if you are truly ready. Some women have said to me I love your grey hair but I am not ready to show mines. I can respect that because there is no sense in taking the grey journey and you don’t feel good about seeing yourself like that. You must be ready and okay to own your grey hair.
