“You go, girl, ROCK that salt and pepper!” That’s a comment one of the bloggers below got from a stranger on the street. And it’s true. With the right style and maintenance, gray hair is striking.
And there’s more. It saves you time. You don’t have to drive to your coloring appointment each month. It saves you clean-up. Coloring hair yourself means a mess in the bathroom or kitchen. It saves money. Styling salons don’t come cheap.

Many see their platinum locks as badges of honor. Several feel it lends them an air of credibility in their profession and personal life.
