Before, gray hair is commonly linked with wisdom and knowledge. But the world is changing, and it seems like people have this common issue with the natural aging process especially of females. So, reaching for the dye when the first sign of silvery hair sprouts became a mutual covenant among women under age 60.
But that’s not how it goes with Martha Truslow Smith, the 26-year old founder of the Instagram account “grombre”. Martha made this Instagram account to support ladiesto drop the hair dyeing culture when the first sign of gray hairappearsand embrace their silvering roots.
Not believing that graying hair means fading beauty, she wants to challenge the way the society think about what it considers beautiful. More importantly, she wants to propose that women should think about the more important things to spend their valuable time, resources, and energy with if they find themselves minding other’s biases.
Celebrities like Lady Gaga who promoted the platinum/silver trend inspired her to uphold her advocacy of embracing silvering hair.
Martha doesn’t have anything against those who like to dye cover their hair saying that if they enjoy it, they should go for it; but if they don’t, they can totally ditch the dyeing norm and embrace their beautiful graying roots.
The women, who ditched dyeing their hair, looked simply stunning. Their stories may inspire other women to embrace the courage to do the same. You can scroll down to meet them yourself.
