Gorgeous Grey

I have a grey hair. A lone grey strand nestled with the rest of the dark.

I wonder when it started growing. Or how it turned grey without me noticing at all.

I found it on Tuesday morning as I fluffed and pik’d my fro. If I’d seen this last year, I’d probably have pulled it out instantly. I wonder why I used to be so afraid of growing old and all things associated with old age. Have I truly gotten over it? This is a question I’ll ask myself another day, but let’s stay on the topic, grey hair.

Since I decided to go natural, one thing that has always managed to grab my attention is kinky-curly textured grey hair. I remember the first grey mama I admired. She was buying fruits at Commercial Area. Since then, my appreciation for grey hair has continued to grow. I think it’s so beautiful. I no longer wonder why my mom refuses to dye her abundant grey. It’s gorgeous.

Last week, I stalked the internet for Grey natural hair and it did not let me down. I want to be as fly as these women when I’m their age.

Back in August, Rihanna had a moment with Grey hair. I wondered if it’d catch on, but she was off it in a blink. Maybe it’s better this way, maybe grey really should be just, grey. Mother nature’s own makeover and not a trend. Anyway whether it’s naturally occurring or bottle obtained, I’m definitely a fan of this colour.

Black is beautiful, and grey is gorgeous!

  1. I’m grey too. Around my front edges and scattered in centre of my head. I’m in my 20s.
    Elder brother is veryyy grey. That was what attracted his wife to him.
    Younger sister had a grey patch until she cut her hair. Hair re-grew all dark. Dunno why.


  2. I’m so in love with grey that I’m looking for a grey hair dye. Lol. My frnds think my moment of madness is upon me again. Please do not hesitate to point me to the shop if you ever get to see a grey dye in Lagos.
