- Graying hair is a natural part of aging.
- It turns out, letting your hair go gray can offer tons of benefits like saving you time and money. You may even gain a new style and confidence.
- Whether you’re ready to go fully gray is a personal choice but it’s definitely one worth considering.
As much as we try to escape it, aging is a natural part of life and so are our changing bodies and appearances. One telltale sign of aging is gray hair, which occurs due to a decrease in melanin (the pigment that gives your hair color). While some people refuse to go gray, others are embracing it.
There is no set rule on when, or if, you should go gray. It’s simply a personal choice. But it turns out, embracing your graying hair may offer a few benefits that make it worth doing! Here’s a look at 7 benefits of letting your hair go gray plus a few tips to help you transition to your new color.
One of the most notable benefits of letting your hair go gray is it can save you a lot of money. Having your hair professionally colored every 4- to 8-weeks can be expensive. In fact, depending on how frequently you go and the cost of your service, of course, you’re likely spending thousands each year.
Box dye is the cheaper alternative but it can still be expensive, especially if you have to do root touch-ups every few weeks. Embracing your graying hair means fewer visits to the salon and more cash in your wallet!
