Going grey! 👩🏽‍🦳⁣
⁣
For years, I’ve tried going natural for multiple reasons.⁣
1. Maintenance (I was dying every 2-3 weeks)⁣
2. Cost⁣
3. Embracing my realness⁣
⁣
I was going to wait to go grey until after I retired from corporate life, but why? Societal expectations. F that.⁣
⁣
It took me a little over a year to fully transition. There’s about >inch left, but barely noticeable. That demarcation line during the year was a real struggle.⁣
⁣
This grey gray hair journey really taught me patience, self-confidence, and authenticity.⁣
⁣
