Yes or no: Is it time to take on white hair? The question goes far beyond aesthetics and, at one time or another, impacts all women. We went to investigate the reasons for this insecurity and to gather stories & looks of those who found their own beauty in the gray.
History 1: Queen of the national rock, in the high of the 67, retired the red hair and assumed the whites. She even had an internet campaign so she would not stop painting. Story 2: Fashion blogger revealed in Instagram the grown root of gray hair. Auê in the comments.
The queen, needless to say, was Rita Lee. He shrugged his shoulders at the text in which Gloria Kalil asked”do not stop(to paint the hair)!” It follows majestic, now with the white yarns, keeping the fringe and the length stamped in the imaginary of Brazilian music according to SUNGLASSESWILL.COM.
The blogger was Joanna Moura, from A Year Without Zara(aka @mourajo), who has been dealing with whites since the age of 18. In the first gray-haired pictures on Instagram, she received numerous questions from followers: Are you pregnant? Is it light effect? Did you paint the root? Why are your hair white? He insisted on the look, created a conversation about acceptance and became a reference for many people.
~ Overall, the reaction was very positive. Even today I receive comments from women speaking that they disenchanted to paint their hair after they read my post. For them it was very liberating. And this to me is incredible. Because it’s about having freedom to choose. [Joanna Moura]
Until the elevator doors open and Miranda Priestly enters the scene
Yes, she, the Meryl Streep character in The Devil Wears Prada. With sunglasses and very bright hair, in 2006 he became a reference in the subject, with a style associated to the power. It was the cue for platinum to become fashionable, even among the young.
~ The fashion of gray and drooping hair has helped a lot in the acceptance of white. He created a visual custom. And, coming from a group of young women, she made the older ones feel at ease.(…) What I see in those who assume gray hair in the 40’s and 50’s is that they really accept who they are. [Camis Fank]
And since we are talking about fashion icons , after a gradual process that lasted 8 months, Costanza Pascolato , one of the authorities of the country when it comes to fashion, reinforced the team: at age 78, he started to wear beautifully white strands. He told Modices exclusively:
~ As I am~old lady, but still active, I needed to get a strong image. It is almost a caricature: the coke, the white hair, the sneakers, the blazer. It seems strange, right? But you need to have a bit of fun to innovate. [Costanza Pascolato]
She reinforces that every personality has her hair. He tells me that his mother never got close to the paint, leaving her head white. The daughter Alessandra Blocker, who also never painted, assumes the white wicks. Already the other daughter, Consuelo, prefers to paint.”What I do not like is standardization in fashion, when they are all the same,” the consultant said.
Many women are taking on white hair. Some view it as an activism: to change the pattern of which gray head necessarily leads to ink. They choose not to create hall dependency and incorporate time into the visual
Most women, however, still reach the age of 40 or 50 with the same hair style from when they were very young. In these cases, the moment of incorporating the graying goes through a transition phase. Which can be, yes, time-consuming and require patience.
All external pressure on our head. Fear of looking old?
The transition from colored hair(natural or not) to white hair carries more than an individual aesthetic decision. To give up the color moves with our security, because it is as if society would see us in another way. Answering bluntly(or simply ignoring the chatter) requires a good deal of self-confidence.
The opinion of others is one of the biggest problems of those who want to take on white hair.”In today’s world, women can not grow old. Any sign of old age must be fought, disguised. And if you do not bother to hide the signs of aging(which still include wrinkles and blemishes), it’s considered sloppy,” says Joanna.
The hairdresser and visagist Camis Fank(from @saladecorte) goes in the same line.”He has the idea of discarding what is old. And in the specific case of women, the impression that an old woman does not reproduce. All this is impregnated in people, not always conscious.” In other words: patriarchal society values young women, within a standard. And with long, colorful hair that represents it.
Other facets of the white haired woman: wise and connected to nature
Have you noticed how the grayish look can reinforce an idea of wisdom and experience? Of a woman connected to nature and to herself? Kind to Maria Bethânia barefoot letting her long hair grow old with her. Or Rita Lee herself, who decided to live in the jungle between animals and greens and thought that natural hair would combine more.
The problem, recalls Camis Fank, is that the idea of the wise woman is rarely enough to break the paradigm:”There is the archetype of the wise old woman, with long white hair, but this is not seen as beauty. Even women can not see this naturally.”
~ The problem of taking the whites is not in the white wires, but in the transition. Letting the root grow naturally incites carelessness with appearance. They are contradictory feelings at all times, of not being comfortable with the appearance. At the same time, the feeling of freedom is wonderful! [Blonde Wakizaka]
The story of whoever took the short cut to let the whites come
Rubia Wakizaka(@rubia_rubita_home) decided to take the whites at age 38. Through the internet, he shared the whole transition. To summarize: after a few months of growing root, I was anxious for the result. He took advantage of the old curiosity and shaved his hair on the machine 4. He went through the pixie cut and the tuft until he reached the current gray Chanel.
In search of support for this phase, many people turn to Facebook groups or blogs. Advocate Kika Ribeiro is an example. Inspired by Rúbia’s transition, she also decided to share the change in her channel.
It was long, brown and curly hair pro vision gray and short. After 5 months and a few good centimeters of root disguised with scarves, hat and a temporary spray of paint, came the scissors. In best DIY style, it discolored and then toned with gray the ends that still carried old paint. All in front of a homemade camera.
Some intermediate ink options to facilitate the capillary transition process
1_ inverted stitches: melt the colored part of the hair from the bottom up, avoiding that the line of separation of the white is very strong;
2_Discolor everything and tint with gray / lead. If the root becomes very marked, it is worth to disappear too;
3_ platinum coins: you risk tending to the blonde, but it is a frequent option;
4_ Cutting short hair pro grow naturally: in some cases, it’s a radical change. But it makes it much easier!
I am determined, I made the transition… and now? Tips for those who arrived there <3
White carries all that stigma of being difficult to care for, to be resected, to have frizz. Camis Fank said that after years of mistreating the cuticle of the strands with paint, the discovery(positive!) May be softer hair. It depends on the nature of the hair.
But the white thread has a different structure. It can be more porous and dry. That’s because, where before there was melanin, now there’s a space left- there’s air bubbles inside. And also because the production of our sebaceous glands decreases with time, producing less oiliness.
To maintain capillary health, the guideline is: to replenish water and lipids with deep hydration- which can even be made from vegetable oils. To avoid the yellowish and maintain the beauty of the color, shades shades(those reds) every 15 days(be careful because in excess they can leave the hair lilac and dry).
Changing the look color palette can help in adapting to white hair, see?
This decision by the gray can bring changes in the wardrobe. Some people think that white leaves the look down and bet on”compensations” to fulfill a role that was previously the priority of hair: color. Everything will depend on the set: cut, makeup, accessories and chromatic palette. Visagism can help with this transformation.
Think of Vera Holtz. In fiction, her long white hair was from Mother Lucinda, from Avenida Brasil, to the rich villain Magnólia, from The Law of Love. In real life, make up a bold and humorous look that can be checked in your(hilarious) Instagram @veraholtz:
Vera chose the black clothes. Rúbia says that she started to love bright colors like red and blue. And he taught a simple trick for those who think that some color does not match the hair any longer: use it on the bottom, with skirts, pants or accessories. You do not have to stop coloring, no.
he bottom line is: you have the freedom to be anyone you want. Including gray
Regardless of the choice to take or not, you will still keep hearing:~you need to have attitude to take on the white wires,~white hair does not look good on everyone,~grown root seems sloppy. As if, to use white hair without judgments, it needed a super powerful style to Miranda Priestly. Enough to be intimidating, right?
We told all this to remember that the decision is yours- and only. And based on how you feel good and not on how social standards want you to feel.
@mourajojo:”I like to change my hair, to paint when I feel like it, to cut it when I feel like it, but by no means did I want to become hostage to it. Today I paint from time to time. I’m in a blonde phase and I’m enjoying it. Even so, it takes me a while to paint. Now my root is about three centimeters, and the white wires are there, well popped up. And I love.
@rubia_rubita_home: If I needed to define myself with a color would be impossible. I’m colorful! I’m alive! And so my hair reflects. Union of all colors. White.
@paginadakika: Is it forever? Do not know. It will stay this way as I look in the mirror and feel satisfied
>> Do you want to know, after all, why the hair turns white? The main cause is actually genetic. Anaflávia Oliveira, MD, a physician and trichologist at the International Association of Trichologists , explains how genes- along with diseases, medicines and some habits- lead to canine(the medical term for white hair). On her site, Folyic , also has tips on how to delay the process.
