Queen Letizia does it! 3 reasons not to dye gray hair.
Queen Letizia has been standing by her gray highlights for quite some time and has now staged her silver highlights again at an appointment in London. We know three good reasons to emulate the royal lady and simply let the gray hair grow out!
The fear of gray hair is great for many women, as the dwindling of the natural hair color is still considered an unstoppable sign of aging. The first gray strands say nothing about the age of the wearer, many women turn gray in their thirties, and others still wear their natural shade when they retire. While in the past people would use a tint at the first sign of a white strand of hair, the trend now is to simply let gray hair grow out.

Legendary US actor and director Jodie Foster sported a silver mane at the Cannes Film Festival last year, as did Andie MacDowell and Catherine Zeta-Jones. Does gray hair show a no-go? A long outdated concept!
"When bleaching, all the pigments are scratched out of the structure," explains Berlin hairdresser Michael Manthei, "this completely destroys the structure of the hair."

Once a month it is time to touch up the roots, for this, it is usually advisable to go to a professional. Such a visit to the hairdresser costs from 50 euros and upwards – that adds up. In addition, there are hair care products, such as treatments that are intended to soothe stressed hair. So if you stop dyeing, you save a lot of money – and a lot of time, by the way.
The fact is, our natural hair color is part of our overall pigmentation and suits us best. Of course, fake hair color can be a look and of course, tastes differ. But as a rule, the natural tone suits our complexion best – and the natural look is always less complicated anyway.
