Whether you fight it or accept it your gray hair is coming either way.
Wendy Verdu was like so many other women, dying her hair for decades to hide her natural hair that was graying.
At the age of 53 she made the decision to finally accept her gray hair and stop dyeing her hair. The moment she stopped fighting against her gray hair, she started to love it instead.
“I started getting gray hair or noticing it my senior year in high school … I felt the need to color it to camouflage the gray so I did that for a good 20 years,” Wendy explained in a prior YouTube video.
Everyone remembers spotting that first gray hair shining like unwanted silver on your head.
It took Wendy decades to proudly show off her beautiful and natural gray hair, but it does not have to be that way for everyone.
Gray, silver, and white hair colors are coming into style and that is great news for everyone who has those colors coming in naturally.
It is time to accept the gray and stop covering them in hair dye!
“You know we associate grey hair with with old age. I mean it’s just what we do and in my mind thats where it went,” Wendy admitted.
Many of us are just like Wendy and associate gray hair with being old, but that is not that case!

According to Penn Medicine, the average age to start getting gray hair is during people’s 30’s, that is not old at all.
Many people are just like Wendy and will start getting gray hair by their 20’s though.
There are multiple reasons that hair will gray early: genes, stress and health are the three most important factors. It has nothing to do with “being old.” Penn Medicine also states that half of the populations hair will be 50% gray by the age of 50.

If you are one of those people that are still not ready to accept your gray hair, don’t worry, you are definitely in the majority. A great tip is to stay up on these nutrients: protein, vitamin B12, copper, iron and zinc.
Being deficient with those nutrients is known to case graying.
It took Wendy about one year to grow her gray hair out naturally before she was ready to chop off the remaining brown hair.
Her hair was mainly gray at this point but cutting off the brown was still going to be a dramatic change. Wendy’s stylist makes sure to take her time and cut out every piece of hair that still had brown dye on it.
Is Wendy going to love her gray hair or hate it?
Wendy loves her new hair and so do we! Her natural hair makes her curls softer than every before.
Viewers had a lot to say about Wendy’s new gray hairdo,
“I honestly believe that you look younger now that you had all of the dye color out. You look amazing.”
“Whoop whoop bravo you won’t regret it. It takes time to readjust your internal vision of your self but when you do you will see the real you.”
