Although Miss Kelly Osbourne decided to go gray via hair coloring, there are plenty of beauties out there that are letting their own natural hair sparkle and shine…

There’s something to be said about seeing natural gray-silver, uncolored hair. For the second time in my life, I actually stopped a woman to let her know how very gorgeous I thought her hair was.
At first, she didn’t realize what I was saying, but I continued to tell her how much I loved seeing her natural hair. Her name, as I later found out via email, is Yamuna Zake and she teaches body rolling (www.yamunabodyrolling.com)!

The first time I stopped someone she turned out to be Linda Rodin, and that is how we began our friendship. I could not stop admiring her look; she later told me that I must need glasses, as I was crazy to think she was one of the most beautiful people I had ever laid eyes on. Truth be told, she is stunning. Then came my favorite nail guru, Essie Weingarten; Cindy Joseph of BOOM! Cosmetics — and it started to make me think about how much I love the look of silver/gray hair. Natural hair. Uncolored.

I pay hundreds of dollars to color my hair, as it’s always been told to me that my gray hair ( that I have had since age sixteen) aged me, and that I needed to color it. I have been nearly every hue in the book and am ready to take the plunge, letting my own natural color grow out.
I know I have a lovely white streak near the back of my head, as it’s been there since I was a young girl, so I will have to endure months upon months (possibly a year) to let my natural color take over my head. I may not be able to handle it at times, yet I hope I have the strength to just go with it. I imagine I am salt and pepper now, but I truly have no clue as to what my “natural” color is anymore.
Wish me luck on my journey, and please know that this is a personal change for me that I am scared to do, yet, looking forward to as well.
