7 Weird Things That Happen When You Go Gray

Embracing your gray hair seems like such a straightforward thing to do.

One day you wake up, decide to stop dyeing your hair, and voila! You’ve made your choice, and you no longer need to spend a minute thinking about it.

Ummm No!

As we all know, it’s a lot more complicated than that. 

** Please Note:  This post contains affiliate links.  I only link to products that I personally like or that have been recommended to me by my silver sisters.  You can see my full policy here.**

Ditching the dye and accepting your gray hair usually results in a lot of introspection and hand-wringing.  “Have I made the right choice? Will I look older?”, etcetera.

All of those thoughts are normal and part of the process.  As you can see in one of my most popular posts, going gray is a BIG DEAL!

But there are also some weird, unexpected side effects of going gray.

#1 – You Become a Selfie-Snapping Narcissist!

“Looking Good!”

For years, when I was asked to provide a photo of myself, I never could find one that didn’t have either a family member or a friend in the photo with me. 

I never took selfies where I was the ONLY person in the frame.

Now, I am the Queen of Selfies!

Oh my gosh, if you saw the camera roll on my iPhone….it’s embarrassing, really! But let’s face it – watching the grays come in is FASCINATING!

I don’t get tired of seeing my own gray hair, and I don’t get tired of seeing yours.  Who could get tired of looking at gorgeous gray hair?!

Aside from selfies, do you also:

a) find yourself checking out your gray hair in the rearview mirror at stoplights?

b) Ask others to take pictures of the back of your head?

c) Constantly check the underside of your hair to see if more gray is coming in?

Please tell me it’s not just me! 🤣

#2 – Men Come Out of the Woodwork!

image of romantic man
“I love me some gray-haired ladies!”

If you are on Instagram, you’ve most likely experienced this – you start posting pix of yourself with gray hair and you get a FLOOD of male followers!

I didn’t realize that there is a large subset of men who find gray hair very attractive.  Who knew?

And in real life, I’ve gotten more male attention than I have in years.

To be honest, after being the subject of often-unwanted attention from men since I was a young teen, I was kind of enjoying not being the object of their attention as much as the years went by.

But in the past 8 months since I ditched the dye? Forget it! I’ve had men flirt with me online and in real life to an alarming degree.

The other day at church, I could barely make it into the coffee hour because a man wouldn’t stop flirting with me.  What the heck?

I just finished reading Anne Kreamer’s book, Going Gray.  She had a similar experience.  It seems that many men care more about authenticity and self-confidence than they do about hair color. 

Interesting!

#3 – Boobs Are No Longer What People Stare At!

“Why is she talking about boobs?”, you’re probably wondering!

Well, as most gals know, sometimes when you’re talking to a man, you will catch him talking back…to your chest.  Ugh!

“Please look at my eyes”, right?!

Believe me, your gray roots will take the attention off of your chest, past your face (where it belongs) and straight to the top of your head!

My Roots in April – They Don’t Talk!

It’s funny- I often catch both men AND women talking to the top of my head now.  Considering I’m fairly tall, this often has a very funny effect – some petite ladies have to really crane their necks while they are talking to me.

They are too polite, for the most part, to say anything about my gray roots, but you can see that they are VERY focused on it.

#4 – Your Young Kids May Worry About Your Mortality

Let’s face it – in our culture, people still equate gray hair with age.  If nobody dyed their hair, people would soon see that people of all ages have gray hair. 

Mine started at 17, and I was probably 90% gray by 40.   There are young women on Instagram who are embracing their grays in their 20s, and they look fabulous!

But our culture has conditioned us to think that only very old people have gray hair.  That’s what 60 years of hair-dye advertising does to a culture!

I have a son who has high-functioning autism.  He depends on me a lot, and when I first started going gray, it scared him a bit.

He equated gray hair with old age and imminent death and asked me point-blank if my gray hair meant I was going to die soon. 

I quickly reassured him that I was fine, and he is now one of my biggest gray-hair supporters.

Apparently, this isn’t unusual.  I’ve read similar stories by other mothers and grandmothers on Instagram and Facebook. 

If you have younger or special-needs children, this is a conversation that might come up while you are transitioning.

#5 – You Get Called Brave… A Lot

image of soldier and kid
This Woman Is Brave… But Me? Just for Going Gray?

I’m sure this happened to you already, but it if it hasn’t yet, no worries… because it WILL happen!

Other women will tell you that you are “brave” to go gray.  Sometimes, you’ll hear this more than once in the same day!

It seems to be one of the most common remarks people make when they see your transitioning hair.

I really think that most women who say this mean well.  They really do! 

In their eyes, it’s very brave to go gray in a culture that values youth and beauty above all else.  It really does feel good to buck society’s insistence that we all color our gray hair.

It’s just that it gets TIRESOME to hear how “brave” you are over and over again. 

“Did I rescue a child from a burning building? Did I single-handedly fight off the Grizzly Bear that was attacking the Cub Scouts?” No – I just stopped dyeing my hair.  Jeez!

Also, it’s the tone of how it’s said.  Sometimes, ladies will clutch your arm, look at you with concern, and THEN tell you how brave you are, which has the decided effect of making you feel like they think you are CRAZY and that you will look AWFUL.

#6 – Your Hair Will Become a Topic of Conversation

A lot of people will talk about your hair.  Even if you are an extrovert, like me, it can be a little surprising to get so much attention focused on your appearance.

I have walked in on conversations about my hair at work and at church.  I’ve been sitting at a large table full of people and caught people at the other end of the table talking about my hair.

It’s usually complimentary, thank goodness. If it wasn’t, that would be worse!

“Ladies, Let’s Change the Subject, Shall We? I’ve Grown Weary of Chatting About My Hair.”

#7 – Your Friends Will Tell You that YOUR Hair Looks Great but THEY Could Never Go Gray

This conversation comes up a lot with my work colleagues and my friends.  Personally, I don’t believe in trying to convince someone else to ditch the dye.  They will know when they are ready. 

So that’s what I tell them!

image of gray hair woman chatting
“Even If I Weren’t Three Sheets to the Wind, Dolores, I Would Still Say It – You Look FABULOUS with Gray Hair, But I Could NEVER Pull It Off!”

They will also tell me that my gray color is nice, but when their grays poke through, they look wiry or are a bad color.

Having gone through this, and having seen a bunch of other women’s transition stories, I tell them the truth – you won’t know what it looks like until the roots are at least an inch or two long.

I still don’t have a very clear picture of what I will look like fully gray – that’s part of the fun (for me!)

How about you? Have you had any unexpected side effects while embracing your grays? If you have, please comment below.  I’d love to hear them!

    I was with my 19 year old son who suffers from Asperger’s in his therapist’s office waiting and he very loudly asked me if I forgot to die. I was startled and said what? He said again, very loudly “Did you forget to die?” I asked him what he was talking about and he said “Your hair. Did you forget to dye your hair?” I could hear the therapist on the other side of the door trying not to laugh out loud. I told him no that I was growing it out. He said “Oh. You look like Cruella Deville.” I was about ready to ask him if he was ready to die but the therapist came in the room then and he was saved. Later we had a conversation and I explained what I was doing and why.

      Penny, you made me laugh! My son has Asperger’s too, and so I can totally relate to this 🙂. My son called me a “silver-haired nutcase” the other day, which was a good sign that he has finally accepted that I’m not going back to dyeing my hair.

    …I started getting gray in my late 30’s but I knew I was going to let it go….loved my grandfathers and my dads…..not only is my gray a conversation piece so is the length……..so I too am taking photos…..not only for the gray but for the length….it was very short and is now to my waist….and I have waves!!!……I just turned 64 and there seems to be a lot of discussion on being gray and long …… the front and sides are mostly white…..just wondering if others are letting theirs go long as well as white….

      Hey Peggy, I am in the process of growing out the dreaded pixie cut, but I do plan on growing out my hair and wearing it longer. I’m not sure how long I will let it grow but probably at least shoulder length which is longer than I have worn it since I was in my 30’s. It will depend on how healthy it looks at that length.

    I made the decision to stop coloring when my husband’s career provided an opportunity to relocate to a new area. The transition from dark brown to silver was aided by my colorist who did two different processes….first one to bleach out some of the color to look like highlights…then six weeks later to do a second process of coloring the highlights with silver toned color. I also did a pixie haircut so that the transition time would be on less hair and less damage. It’s taken 16 months to grow it out to a long bob and nearly all colored hair is gone. Hubby was exceptionally supportive throughout and loves my now mostly silver hair. I do get stopped by strangers and complimented frequently. The downside was the search for a new job in our new community where I felt that having gray hair has been a detriment…though I landed a great one; ageism is real in the job market. Personally I feel very comfortable in my choice; but it’s still a shocker to those who haven’t seen me for a while. I love that colored hair spray (by L’Oréal) allows me to go pink or blue or purple for the day (mermaid or unicorn looks are so easy with silver Hair) and then I can just wash it out and be back to my professional look. I truly wish I’d done the transition sooner!

      Deb, your hair sounds fabulous! I hate the ageism surrounding gray hair. If nobody dyed their hair, we’d see that people of all ages (from 13 to 115) can have gray hair. So frustrating. I hope that will change. So glad you had a great transition experience!

    I’m 38 and I just feel like I’ve had it with all the toxic chem. we are all so used to casually putting in or on our bodies. I’m trying to be more honest with myself and who I really am, and the things that really matter to me. I just said “why am I doing this to myself?” and decided to stop. I pretty much forgot about it and one day looked in the mirror and thought I was balding! lol I realized that it only appeared that way because of the staggering amount of gray roots! the right side of my head, at the temple is practically ALL gray. it’s going to look really cool once it’s all grown out. YAY GRAY!

      Yes, yay gray! I also thought I was balding – it happens to a lot of us, and it’s such a relief that it’s just gray hair! I agree with you re: the chemicals. I was so careful about eating well and trying to use nontoxic cleaning products, but I was dumping loads of harmful chemicals onto my scalp every month. What was I thinking?

    Hi! About 9 months ago, I had my stylist heavily foil out my very dark brown hair. That made me blonde-ish. Since then, I have been letting my natural color grow out. Fortunately, I’m very gray and am so happy that I made this decision. The one thing I learned is that if you go blonde via chemicals, you must be diligent and use a purple shampoo. Otherwise, it will turn a very ugly, brassy yellow color. I still use the purple shampoo often to brighten up my gray hair. It’s nice to not spend a fortune at the salon now!

      Hi, Stephanie:

      Agreed! I love not spending the money OR time at the salon anymore! It was getting so expensive, and so frequent (for me). Now I treat myself occasionally to an eyebrow treatment at ULTA or a pedicure. So much cheaper and you feel great afterward!

    I’m 5 months in. I’m not a selfie taker so I’m probably not going to be documenting it that way. I’ve been planning to do stop dyeing for years but a missed 8 week root appointment that fell into 10 weeks just cemented it. My colorist (who is wonderful) was not pleased but has been supportive.

    I’ve only had one question, from my great nephew, who wanted to know why I had so many different colors of hair (my dyed brown has purple ends) and I said “because I like it”. I think he was prompted by his grandfather (my brother) who is too much of a chicken to ask himself.

    I stopped dying/cutting my my hair two years ago. I love the way my brown/gray hair looks. I’m now ready to cut off three inches of the old dyed hair. I feel more beautiful and confident now than with the dyed hair.

    Have really enjoyed your blog and the transition stories! My last dye was 7 months ago and it feels like it’s going sooooo slow! I so relate to this post. I’ve become obsessed with my hair where I used to dry in the morning and forget about until bedtime. I bought a hand mirror JUST so I can check out the back of my head! And I’m constantly checking out the undergrowth. Thanks for keeping me motivated!

    This article is spot on. I’m 47 and decided this past April to stop coloring my hair. I had been highlighting and coloring my hair since I was 13 years old – 34 years! In the past couple of months I’ve really been getting a lot of compliments on my hair. Most people think I paid for these natural highlights. Only now has my husband starting commenting on how much he loves my hair color, and with no prompting from me! I love the way it looks too. I’m rocking my silver highlights and it makes me feel like a rebel not coloring my hair anymore.

    I’m 63 and started the selfies to record the transition to gray and I found it embarrassing too that I had so many (10 months worth). Most people have been very complimentary of my new color. I transitioned from brunette to gray with blonde highlights, which made it so much easier. People really do say stupid things to you about the new you. My friend told me that my gray wasn’t ugly. I think it was supposed to be a compliment. I really like my hair without the dye. I have about an inch to go and can’t wait for it to be gone forever. Best hair decision I ever made.

    My roots always grew out really quickly, within 2 weeks. I hated going for touch-ups so I usually wouldn’t go to the salon until it was very grown-out. Then my mom took ill, and eventually passed away. I was in FL for 3 weeks, and when I came home I felt raw and changed … more myself. My mom’s hair was a beautiful shade of silver. I’d long thought about letting myself go gray “someday”, and at this point thought, “what am I waiting for? If not now, when? I’m already 54.” So I kept going. I heard all the comments you’re describing, and still hear them. But once I’d made the decision, I already felt I was gray in my mind’s eye. The rest was a foregone conclusion.

    I’ve just come across your Instagram and headed over here. I’m 38 with a 3 week old baby and another two under 5…I’m seriously considering going grey. I’ve not dyed my hair throughout pregnancy because of an increased sensitivity so I have a good ‘rootage’. I’m blonde so I’m riding the silver blonde craze at the moment using toning purple shampoo…the big question is do I continue? Still undecided.

    • Katie

      Hi, Emma – Congratulations on your new baby! It seems (from what I’ve seen) that gray is easier to grow out from blonde or light red hair because there’s not the stark contrast that you get with brunette hair. Whatever you decide will be the right decision for you! But it might be fun to try it for a while and see how it goes. Some women use Color Wow Root Powder (or other products) to get through the first months of the transition. Good luck!

    Great read! I’ve always been told I look to young to be a grandma, and look like a sister to my daughters. Both daughters are hair stylists, and initially one was supportive (she’s the one that does my hair and really knows how much grey/white I have) but the other was very opposed. But I think she was more opposed to me aging than anything. It’s more fun to have a mom that’s looks like a sister than a mom that’s really 55 and is exhausted after a full day with the grand babies 👶🏻 LOL. She’s supporting me now, but still doesn’t understand why I would want to look “old”. Age and wisdom will catch up with her 🤓

    Nice article! I am still not confident with growing out my hair but I’m doing it. For job interviews it is not the best, so I may have to color my hair again. There is ageism in the workforce. I was never good at coloring my hair on a regular basis so most of the time I had gray roots showing so I figured I would just stop dyeing it all together. A lot of friends think that I am trying to save money but that is not the reason I am doing it.

      Hi, Jill – Have you looked into root powder to temporarily cover your grays? You can find a link to it on my gray hair products page and also in Louise Pendry’s transition story article. A lot of women use that to get through job interviews. It’s frustrating when people don’t understand our real motivations for going gray, but just stick to your guns and do what’s best for you!

    Brilliant Katie! I too have a son with high functioning (mild) Aspergers and have had the mortality discussion. The time it’s going to take to transition will be adjustment for not only me but my children too. Great posts , love reading them!

      Thank you, Portia! I’ve heard this from other mothers of special-needs kids, too. Adapting to change is often hard for them, so it’s so good to have these discussions. xoxoxo

    Yes! Men talking to the top of your head?! A welcome change from looking at the chest. You want to say “er yeah, hi? My eyes are further down…but first off – would you like to chat about my hair?”
