Why is grey controversial?
I call bullshit. I just don't get it. Radical feminist act? I don't think so.
So what is all the blather about? Going grey. Not coloring your hair. Being au natural.
I've been grey for years. I can't even remember the last time I colored my hair, but it must have several years ago, because my hair is past my shoulders and there are no dark tips to be seen. I stopped coloring my hair when I became poor. I do remember the reason clearly. I couldn't justify spending money for colorant every month. Like everything else, I consider eating as more important than having drab dark brown hair.
My hair is now totally grey. I have a lighter, almost white, strip in the front, but the rest is salt and pepper. I'm so used to it that I don't think I'd even recognize myself with dark brown hair. I like being grey. I don't view it as a feminist declaration. I didn't know that I would be on the cutting edge of fashion by being too cheap to color my hair, but there you go.
There are a couple of things about my grey hair that I don't like. The grey makes my already unruly hair even more unmanageable with the spiral frizzies sticking out like antennae. And because I shed more than a whole pack of Olde English Sheepdogs, long white hairs litter every piece of furniture and every dark colored outfit I own.
So from this radical feminist, let it grow out. It looks really sexy being grey. Stumble It! JBlog Me
