The Wonderful Facebook Gray Hair Support Groups

If you are just starting your transition to gray hair, you should definitely think about checking out the Facebook gray hair support groups!

My last dye was around February 22, 2018 but it wasn’t until April 2018 that I decided that I definitely wanted to transition to gray hair.

I wasn’t sure where to begin.  By a crazy coincidence, my friend Kim posted a picture of herself on Facebook at that same time, showing off her lovely gray locks.

** 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.**

I’m so glad I saw that post!

I reached out to her, and she introduced me to the concept of gray hair Facebook support groups.  If you haven’t yet, you should check some of these groups out.

They are a great resource when you are transitioning to silver hair!

You will find tips, tricks, and plenty of support.  No matter which route to silver you take, you will find women like yourself on these groups who will encourage you.

Now, not all of the Facebook gray hair support groups are alike. 

Some groups are very restrictive with a lot of rules and regulations, while others are more freewheeling.

For example, some groups are geared to women who want to go all natural (not just with ditching hair dye, but other artificial beauty products like lipstick.

Some gray hair groups are for women who want to transition with long hair, or with short hair.

Other gray hair groups are directed towards women who wish to use highlights or gray blending to make the transition easier.

A good idea is to join a few groups and see which one best meets your needs.

My two personal favorites don’t have those types of restrictive rules!

Silver Revolution

Jonie Peck runs Silver Revolution.  I met her originally through another gray-hair Facebook group, and we became friends on Instagram as well.

She recently asked me to be her co-Admin at Silver Revolution and we are excited to grow that group.

It’s amazing what women can accomplish when we work together!

The Silver Circle

The Admins on The Silver Circle are warm and friendly, and they run a friendly and informative page.

A lot of the women in my Silver Hair Transition Stories are women that I met through the Silver Circle.  Some of them have become my virtual friends, and I hope to meet them in person some day as I feel a real kinship with them!

For many women, going gray is a big deal – it can cause a lot of soul-searching and some insecurity. 

The Facebook groups really help you work out those feelings and get the support you need.

And, if you’re having a blast transitioning, you’ll find plenty of support for that, too!

I urge you to check out these groups if you are going gray – you’ll be glad you did.

And while you’re at it, check out the gray hair community on Instagram as well. I don’t know about you, but I can never get enough of our supportive silver sisters.

Please do me a favor and share this post to social media, as it helps me grow my audience and spread the word about our Silver Revolution!  And remember to subscribe to my YouTube Channel and Pinterest Feed for more gray hair tips and product recommendations. Thanks!

    I am making, what I hope to be my final, and successful attempt to allow my hair to transition! Unfortunately this is coinciding with a career change! I will be teaching undergraduates at a university. I’m hoping an academic environment will be more open to this bold move. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a bit anxious!

      I bet it will be fine! I have a friend who just got an executive level position – she interviewed while she was in the middle of her transition! You can do it 🙂 . Good luck! And congratulations on your new career!

    Oh boy im glad I found this blog! I have a story, three weks ago I went to my male hairdresser of 7/8 years I had been talking about going gray for a year or so, this time I said thats it im doing it!! He had in the past suggested I probably was not ready saying did I enjoy my visits, the relaxation etc? yes I do well dont do it yet!! This was and is a mans perspective, unfortunately I dont think he gets it! My decision was made this time as I had not gone to my five week appointment for two sessions and was nearly on my third.I had started the process with noticeable gray, So I found a picture of the slightly shorter style but still long
    enough for me to deal with. ( I think its called a concave bob!) I showed him and said this is the style i want just its just slightly shorter than what I had, I also asked about highlights to get me through the transition period!! now whether he had glasses and wasnt wearing them ( I have not ever noticed him wearing them) or he just wanted to get me out of the salon as I was his last client (2pm) He does know from past experience I dont like my hair cut too short as my waves are hard to blow dry when they are cut into and difficult to manage. He said he didnt think that highlights were a good idea at this stage, ok I will deal with it disappointed I took his advise on board. When I left the salon I was soo frustrated, upset, annoyed, I was speechless,
    I have had three weeks of not being able to style my hair, too short at the back, in fact when I used to wear a short hairstyle it was longer! What on earth was he thinking, his passing words were ” let me know if you are not dealing with it so we can perhaps put highlights in next visit!! ” well I am leaving my next appoint ment for six or seven weeks just to give the back of my hair time to grow, my sister-in-law has given me her FEMALE hairdressers number etc, perhaps a womans perspective may be more helpful, I can only try, hopefully she wears her glasses, or better still she does not require them 🙂

      Sue, how frustrating! Sounds like he didn’t want to support your gray hair transition AT ALL. I’m glad you have the name of a new stylist. If you get a chance, check out my Gray-Friendly Salon Directory and see if you find anyone on there near you. You don’t just need a female stylist, you need one who is supportive of gray hair (many of them aren’t). Good luck & hope it works out!
