Support from my family and extended family

My husband and children (who are 17 and 20) are very supportive of my decision to go grey. They think I look well and respect my wish to be my real authentic self.I joined a group on Facebook called 'Gray and Proud' about a year' ago. The group has been going since about 2008/2009. I discovered it quite by accident by just typing the word 'grey/gray' into the FB search box. It is a group made up of women from all over the world but mostly from the USA. We are a supportive group and we share our experiences and tips with each other about grey hair. We also provide encouragement for all new people who are transitioning to grey - which is a very difficult time for most people. Through this group, I have also become aware of other websites, blogs, groups, etc, relating to grey hair and I have discovered that it is a growing trend, particularly in America and other European countries. I would love it to develop more here in the UK too but it needs to be promoted by the world of advertising/beauty/hair/media etc. I am so happy that I made the decision to go grey. I feel free and empowered by it - both on the outside and on the inside. I might be in the minority, but I hope that I may be able to inspire others to give it a go by my example. Grey is a colour too!
