Hi ladies :)

My mother, a completely gray 44 year old, has been contemplating going natural. She is concerned that kinks and her very white-gray hair won't mix. I know there are pics out there of women who rock their gray kinks beautifully... can you guys post some? I thought there was a lady with a gray curly fro on the curve salon website, but I couldn't find it. If you know of any, please send me the link, so that I can pass them along to her for inspiration.

Thanks!

    I don't have a picture, but I see women like this on the train and I have to admit their hair looks lovely. Your mom is very young, I'm surprised she wants to go all grey at the age of 44. Good Lord I'm only 7 yr older than your mom!

    There was one on the curve site..her hair was rocking. I met an elder woman with gray/white curls. We started chatting and she discussed her hard time with products since they can yellow/stain her strands.

    rockin' to the tune of her own beat...

    your mom is a super young to be completely gray! But i bet her hair will look fabulous natural.

    Thanks ladies! Missmonie, that second pic on the first link you provided is exactly the one I was searching for!! Thanks a million.

    And, yes, it is crazy that she's totally gray. It's more of a white. She has the youngest, smoothest face/skin, so its always funny to watch people do double takes. She has never dyed her hair and doesn't plan on it. Graying early runs on my moms side of the family. Her daddy turned gray by 30, he passed it down to her and one of her sisters. I have about 4 strands, which I was very concerned about, but she was almost completely gray at 25, and I'm far from that. Plus, I've got henna :)

    Thanks again ladies.

    I haven't dyed my hair in 6 weeks and I think I'm ready to go gray. This is the style/look I don't want hair wise (I love her face though)

    Playing with my hair is a hobby. Fluffy, fine natural 4a. Goal= Healthy, beautiful hair that retains its length.
