{Transition to Grey} 2 years


It’s been officially 2 years and three months since I stopped dyeing my hair.

It’s honestly a much slower process than I wanted, but I haven’t been disappointed in the overall look.

Left: one year of growth right: two years

The left is November 2021, a year after I stopped dyeing (my last dye job was just before Thanksgiving in 2020). The right is late December 2022.

Overall, my hair has lightened and has helped with the combination of grey and dyed hair. I don’t hate it—I thought I might—but I am still anxious to see what it will look like when there’s no contrast of differently colored hair.

I’m due for another hair chop. I can’t work out on the machines at the gym without my ponytail getting in the way. Plus, that will leave just a few inches left of color. I think in a year, it will be grown out. I’m not willing to chop my hair short…yet.

I don’t miss coloring it At ALL! It was getting hard to make it look really even, and it grows so fast I was touching it up every 3-4 weeks. I am hoping to keep most of my hair into my 60s, not have it thin out badly by 60.

If you’re on the fence, try it! I have been telling anyone who will listen that the only way expectations of beauty will change are with those willing to be authentic, not the Hollywood face-lift, Botox, filler, hair dye crowds. #makegreynormalagain
