I wanted to talk a little about the topic of gray hair today, specifically, the impact gray hair has on the way we feel about aging or being ageless.
There is no doubt that gray hair is one of the top visible signs associated with aging, and, although there are some who develop premature grey hair in their 20’s and 30’s, most of us do not even start getting gray in our hair until we are into our 40’s and, for some, even 50’s… so there’s certainly plenty of evidence to support this idea that gray hair normally signifies someone who is a bit older.
Interestingly, there seems to be a trend in the younger crowds to color their hair gray these days. I’ve seen it look kind of nice on some, but I do have a feeling that this is a pretty quick passing trend.
The gray hair that I want to talk about today is not the gray of those who have gone prematurely gray, nor of those who have colored their hair gray on purpose. The gray hair that I want to talk about today is the gray that most of us have in our 40’s, 50’s, and beyond, whether it be a few strands of gray or a whole head full of gray hair.
In my observation, we handle our gray hair in one of three ways.
Many of us choose to color our gray hair, changing it back to its natural color or some color other than gray.
Other’s just go with the gray and let it become their new hair color by default.
And then there are some who really embrace their gray. They let their hair go gray, but rather than just accepting it as a default color they now have because of their age, they seem to really love being gray.
I’d like to talk about these three choices and how each of these three choices has it’s own unique vibration that goes along with it.
Right now, I fall into the first group. I color my hair pretty close to its original color and it doesn’t look much different than it did 20 years ago. This is an option that a lot of us choose. I don’t think we are necessarily coloring our hair to make ourselves look younger. Most of us probably just love our natural hair color, feel it looks best on us, and choose to keep it. As long as we are focusing on what we do want (our natural hair color), rather than focusing on what we do not want (gray hair), this is vibrationally a great choice… and it’s an ageless choice.
The second group is the group that just goes with the change and chooses to let their hair go gray by default. This is an interesting choice. If the person is truly that sort of free spirit that really doesn’t care about things such as hair color and is choosing to just let nature take it’s course, this can be a very ageless choice. However, some who make this choice might not be coming from such a free-spirited vibration and, without even recognizing it, they may be in a vibration that is far from ageless, even a vibration that is extremely aging. There is nothing wrong with this either, as long as they are aware of and happy with this as their choice.
Note: There are some in this group who have way larger things to think about than hair color and this is not who I am speaking of here.
But if those in group two who do have choice are not happy with the choice they have currently made and it’s effects, or if they would choose to have a more ageless vibe, I think they should take a look at the third group…
The third group absolutely embraces their gray hair! They welcome it and they love it! And this shows in the way that they care for their hair. Those in this group do not just leave their hair gray by default and let whatever happens to it just happen. Instead, they love and care for their beautiful gray locks. They pamper it with the right products. They give their gray hair the extra moisture that gray hair needs. They use color enhancing shampoos to remove yellow undertones so that their beautiful silver can look it’s best. They use glosses to give their locks more shine if needed. They grow it long. They cut it short. They style it. They let it go wild and free. They continue caring for their hair… even if it is gray. And this is a beautiful vibration and a very ageless vibration.
Gray hair, in itself, doesn’t make you aging or ageless. The way you choose to be with your gray hair, however, can move you in a more aging or ageless direction.
Gray Hair can be very beautiful choice, but if you’re going to go gray, see it as a conscious choice that you have made, rather than something that just happened. And make sure that you love and embrace your choice. Treat your gray hair with love and care and it will most certainly reflect your ageless vibe!
If you’re on Pinterest, I’ve created an entire board called Gray Hair, Do Care! and will be adding more pictures as I come across them. 🙂
