Do you dye your hair or have you gone grey?
You are solidly in the pro-aging camp if you have made the health of your hair—rather than its color—your priority. The “go grey” movement is full of folks who are curious about their changing hair color, proud to have their hair show their age and accepting the organic changes in their appearance as they age.
However, the mere fact that you continue to color your hair does not make you pro or anti-aging—but should give you pause for thought. There are a lot of societal pressures put upon us as we age to look younger. Many folks, both men and women, report that they are more likely to keep their jobs or be more hirable if they keep their hair brown, black or blond through the use of chemicals. You may be pro-aging at heart, but a pragmatist in terms of your decision to go for color.
Then, finally, some of us just simply prefer color in our hair because we think it’s fun, funky or pretty—or matches our complexions better. It is the pro-aging folks who tend to not give a hoot about what other people think, going grey, black or green stripes for that matter.
