12+ Women Who Love And Embrace Their Gray Locks

Getting grey hair is a natural phenomenon in the world. Everyone will get gray hair eventually as they grow older and older. It’s something that comes with age and getting gray hair is absolutely normal.

However, there are cases of people who have gotten gray hair at, particularly young ages. But, that’s okay too. One of the prominent factors that dictate how early or when you will get gray hair, is genetics.

There’s nothing that says that gray hair looks bad, it’s actually a very unique human feature. And although there might be people who choose to color their gray hair, there are also people who have embraced the uniqueness that gray hair brings. Everyone has their own preferences when it comes to individual matters.

To further demonstrate the beauty of gray hair, a 26-year-old named Martha Truslow Smith, who hasn’t been dying her gray hair for 2 years, has created an Instagram account to feature all the lovely people who have also decided to embrace theirs. Scroll below to see some of them and what they had to say:

1. “I’m 55 and wonder about when people decide that it’s time to stop dying their hair. At age 65? Or at 75? We all grow older. Why do I have to follow fashion rules to look younger if I’m ok with who I am now?”
