I’m trying to remember a time when my mom wasn’t a blonde. I look at older pictures of her and she had dark hair like me. I’m not sure when her transition to lighter hair was but she was definitely way younger than I am now. I never really noticed her grey hair roots coming in.
The blonde seemed to camouflage the grey hair. It was only a few years ago, she’s 85 now, that I convinced her to stop colouring her hair and let it go grey. Now, her hair is thicker and a beautiful silver-grey. No one noticed when she made the switch. To be fair, all of her friends are her age and their eyesight isn’t the best.
