One woman described how she discovered her first gray hairs and when she stopped dyeing them to make her hair look more natural. Her story inspired Bright Side readers to share on Facebook when they stopped dyeing their hair, making room for the all-natural grays and also how they felt empowered amid something that’s still a taboo in our society due to its beauty standards and the never-ending search for eternal youth.

My mom started getting gray hair at 18. She dyed it for a little while, maybe a year or so, but then she stopped. Her hair looks all silvery, with lots of streaks and honestly looks pretty amazing. Unfortunately other people don't see it that way. When I was a kid, people would ask "Is she your grandma?" and I was always like "Dude, she only had me when she was 35!" People have become more understanding over the years though. Once a 6 year old told her she looked like Princess Anna from Frozen because of her white streaks! I love that she doesn't care what other people think of her hair, and that she thinks people shouldn't hide their natural selves. I don't think I'm ever going to dye my hair, unless it's like purple for a month or something just for fun.
