No matter your age, I'm sure you remember the first time you spotted a grey hair on your head. I was 21 and devasted. But would it be so bad to be a young grey-haired lady, after all?
US Vogue writer Sarah Harris doesn't think so, recalling her early discovery of grey strands as a teenager. "I was 16 and mortified," Harris tells The Times. By her twenties, she truly started to embrace her light locks, saying, "I slowly grew fond of the way my silver flickered when it caught the light."
While she realises that she's lucky to have a soft, silken texture to her hair, Harris acknowledges it's a lot of work. "Grey hair, unless styled and conditioned, can look washed-out and neglected. Keep reading . . .Grooming is crucial," she says. Therefore, she spends more time on her strands, protecting her hair from the sunlight to reduce yellowing, all while investing in good shampoos specifically designed for silver tones.
"More than anything, though, I love the rebelliousness of my hair – it’s honest and nonconformist," she says. What do you think?
