And it is so inspiring
What if, instead of cringing over every stray gray and sign of silver roots, we started to embrace it instead? That seems to be the message behind Grombre, an Instagram account dedicated to “a radical celebration of the natural phenomenon of grey hair.” The page has 37,000 followers and more than 900 posts, the majority of which are real women sharing their journey to gray. The result? A collection of confidence boosting, you’re-worth-it affirming social media moments that result in those all-around happy feelings you get when you see a band of women supporting each other. Who knew hair could do so much?
As we mentioned, these photos aren’t a curation of hair models with links back to their modeling agencies and hairstylists. Instead, they’re real women who want to share their journeys. Some users strictly want to mention what going gray means to them, while others want to share stories of when they first started going gray. Regardless of objective, the common thread is the positively sunny outlook of each post that keep us scrolling for more feel-good inspiration.
