Women have been embracing the beauty of their natural gray hair for some time and they absolutely rock the look.
It’s a worldwide trend, women proudly revealing their natural gray and dumping the hair dye. The Grombre Community, a prominent factor in the trend, adores the color gray and is dedicated to showing just how beautiful, classy and sassy women can be when they embrace their silver curls.
Perhaps these stunning examples of women proudly wearing their silver crowns will inspire you to join the club.
The Grombre community is now a large, respectable group with over 142,000 members on Instagram and over 15,000 followers on Facebook.
“A radical celebration of the natural phenomenon of grey hair,” is how Grombre presents itself on Instagram, inviting women to submit their photos and graying hair stories.
In an interview with Bored Panda, founder of the Grombre Instagram account, Martha Truslow Smith, explained she wanted to create a platform of support and positive emotions for women who believe there’s no shame in embracing who you are.
“The underlying reason I started Grombre was to start a different dialogue around gray hair on women and find the answer to some earnest questions of my own: “Is it true that my gray hair is ugly, makes me look old, and means I’m no longer good enough?” the founder of Grombre spoke with Bored Panda. “I’m only in my twenties. If that is true, how will I feel and what will I believe about myself when I’m in my 40s, 50s, 60s?” I want to challenge the way we think about what we consider “beautiful,” and why, and propose that we have more important things to spend our precious time, energy and resources on if we find our hearts aren’t aligning with the things we find to be someone else’s biases.”
According to Trichologist Madeleine Preston, gray hair is a natural part of aging. By 30, most women will notice a few stray gray hairs, by the time they reach 50, it’s likely to have increased to 50% gray. Preston explained the science of graying with Cosmopolitan, “Gray hair is a combination of normally pigmented hairs interspersed with white ones. Hair turns white when the pigmentation cells responsible for color (melanin) stop being produced.”
“Nutritional and hormonal factors can affect hair color as well as stress but, by and large, the predisposition to go grey earlier or later in life is genetic.”
