Young and Gray? You Might Just Want to Stick With It

No matter your age, I'm sure you remember the first time you spotted a gray hair on your head. For me, I was 24. A random occurrence, I thought, although my dad was pretty much completely silver-haired by his late 20s, so I couldn't be too sure. The majority of you said you have already found your first gray hair, and since my initial unearthing, I've detected several more "natural highlights," as my hairdresser likes to say. But would it be so bad to be a young gray-haired lady, after all? Vogue writer Sarah Harris doesn't think so, recalling her early discovery of gray strands as a teenager.

"I was 16 and mortified," Harris tells The Times. By her 20s, she truly started to embrace her light locks, saying, "I slowly grew fond of the way my silver flickered when it caught the light." While she realizes that she's lucky to have a soft, silken texture to her hair, Harris acknowledges it's a lot of work. "Gray hair, unless styled and conditioned, can look washed-out and neglected. Grooming is crucial," she says. Therefore, she spends more time on her strands, protecting her hair from the sunlight to reduce yellowing, all while investing in good shampoos specifically designed for silver tones. To find out why she'll probably stay with the gray for a while, just keep reading.

While she admits that she might eventually have a change of heart regarding her silver-toned hair, for now, she appreciates the authentic look it gives her, and lots of people seem to admire it. "More than anything, though, I love the rebelliousness of my hair — it’s honest and nonconformist," she says. What do you have to say on the subject? If you're going gray and sticking with it, you're in good company. Even if you're not gray just yet, are you all for staying natural, or is that something only time will tell?
