There has been much ado about a female Canadian national news anchor who chose to let her hair go grey during the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions. I thought she looked marrrvelous. I silently commended her for dismissing the burdens of perceived beauty and expectations from society.
Here is a taste of the news of CTV executives letting her go and the rumours surrounding it: https://www.google.com/search?q=lisa+laflamme+grey+hair
Myself, I look forward to letting my natural blonde hair go grey. I welcome the wisdom that will come with it. Lord knows I have had enough life lessons. I also welcome the opportunity to retire gracefully, migrating to a role that appeals to my sense of organization while jumping off the hamster wheel of ever-changing technology.
I would like to see others let their hair go natural, dismissing the pressures from peers, employers, marketers and social media influencers. It will be interesting to see if the “grey filter” attempts from national brands will work in favour for their public image or fall flat.
If one must colour one’s hair, please choose products that are environmentally friendly and won’t damage our precious water supply. You are beautiful the way you are in your natural state while experimenting with different styles that don’t require gobs of hair spray, mousse or gel.
