Going Grey

 It is six years ago that I stopped putting any dye through my hair.

 I decided to just let nature take it's course and let my hair change colour with age (I'm now 51)


I kinda dig the little silver stripes and tease our teenage son he gives me many!

 The colour is getting lighter on the top of the head.



and underneath

I'm still quite dark at the back.

I've been adding to my going grey pinterest board for years other woman who are embracing the ageing process naturally.

Who else is going grey naturally?

  1. At 72 every time I get my hair cut I notice it is getting lighter with more little silvery bits. Ihave always had my hair its natural colour so there was no shock of stopping the dye.

    I love your hair.

    1. Silver is very much the new look. Many older models are being used and they have gray hair. There can be quite the transformation stage with growing out coloured hair.

  2. Your hair is really lovely and I'm proud of you for going natural at a young age. I was around 50 when I stopped coloring mine. I just got tired of the 'cooking' feeling on my head when I colored it and having to keep up with it.

  4. What a lovely grey it is! It's so fascinating watching your hair go grey, and the result is something far softer and more congruent than a dyed head of hair. Good for you! I went grey naturally too and loved the process.

    1. Thanks Yes I too think natural hair colour makes a woman's face look softer - or at least ladies if they dye their hair maybe should try a softer colour than what they used when younger.

  5. Looking good! My hair started to go grey before I was thirty. I couldn't see dying my hair for the rest of my life so decided to go with it. My hair coloured changed slowly from auburn to strawberry blonde to the silver it is today. I can't tell you how many times I was asked what hair colour I was using as the process advanced. So funny. I love my platinum blonde hair.

  6. You look beautiful! Lucky soft curls to boot too! I too gave up colouring my hair about 17yrs ago, it is getting grayer and grayer but I am happy with it. Happy Easter.

  7. Leanne, lovely photos of you and your hair looks great. I still colour my hair, but told myself that when I was 50 I would consider stopping, and seeing that it is not too far away it will be interesting to see what I do.

    Have a lovely weekend.

  8. I've had a substantial amount of grey hair since i was in my 30's. I'm in my 60's now and am completely grey and can't imagine going through 30 plus years or touch ups. I've always thought that those dyes used were probably not good for the person or their hair and the bother of retouching it would be a real nuisance and waste of time and money. I love my grey hair and wouldn't have it any way.

    Your's is looking lovely with more loveliness yet to come.
